Same Sex Second Parent Adoption
Attorney Sydney Benson & her staff made our same-sex, second parent adoption go as smoothly as possible. They answered all our questions in a timely manner, were available whenever a new question popped up, and had flexible options for getting all documents taken care of. The entire process was explained thoroughly, and we felt confident before, during, and after the adoption was finalized. We would recommend Attorney Sydney to any of our friends or family.

Loved her!
Attorney Benson was and is amazing!! She did a fantastic job throughout my entire case. From the face to face when I met her to the actual hearing I felt very confident with her. The lawyer before her I had didn’t defend me like I thought he should have so thats when I found Sydney. And I’m so glad I did. She works very hard and asks all the right questions which showed me she was putting effort into my case. What I liked most about her was she’s upfront and honest. She doesn’t sugarcoat anything but gets to the point cut and dry. Also, her confidence and entire persona in the court room was remarkable. I could go on and on! She’s an impressive women ❤️

If you want an excellent lawyer, chose attorney Benson. From experience, I learned that you need an attorney with an “aggressive” personality. I say that she is aggressive because she goes above and beyond and she keeps it real with her clients and when presenting her case. I hired her and I had sent her an email with so many questions. She got back to me on a holiday- in a timely manor. Regardless, she gets back to me in a timely manor- ALL THE TIME. The other night, she emailed me and answered my questions. We were emailing each other on and off until about 11 pm. Mind you, her office closes at 5pm. Being in the situation I am, she takes my case seriously and let’s me know everything will be okay. She is very professional and also sincere in everything that she does. I have faith in her and she has proven so much to me in a short period of time.

Professional and Courteous
Attorney Benson is intelligent, kind, and incredibly skilled. She handled my matter with incredible professionalism both in and out of the Courtroom. She advocated for me in a way that I don't think anyone else would have and I truly believe that the outcome of my case was better for having hired Sydney.

Thank you Sydney!
My divorce request were a little challenging as I wanted to receive my fair share but to leave my former husband with the house. He was not very cooperative even though he wanted the house, which made for a long drawn out process. Sydney had to put extra effort into this case to get it to work. She had to be "creative" and knowledgeable to find ways to make it work. I now have my share and he has the house that he wanted. She planned for me to be cared for into my retirement years in a way that he is able to provide for. Her paralegal was very helpful and understanding. Sydney treated me as a person not just a client.

I went to visit her when I was having a issue with another attorney, as to get a second opinion and with the thoughts that I would use her due to issues with my attorney. She provided me with the information I needed to make my decision. She explained where I stood in regards to regaining custody and with circumstances how the courts were curently handling such matters. I appreciated the honesty because my current attorney mislead me into thinking I would get 50/50 custody automatically. In the end I made the decision to stick with my attorney due to financial reasons, and the fact myself and the other party were able to come to an agreement. Mrs.Benson information to regain a custody schedule and then revisit more custody down the road as situations improved not only helped me avoid a trial for no reason but also helped the overall relationship between myself and the other party. I am in the process of refering another client to Mrs.Benson as they are in a similar situation as myself. I recommend anybody going through a custody situation or are not happy with there current attorney to visit attorney Benson.
