John Bennett and his team are compassionate, responsive and quite proficient. They have provided expert legal services for me and my family during a very difficult time.

John has handled my legal needs for the past 40 years. He gives careful attention to my situation, remembering my personal details and the names of family members who are involved in my trust. I am confident that he is attentive to my very own personal situation. He lets me know that he is careful with setting up the best plans that work for me, and he answers my questions with patience so that I myself understand the plans. I respect John for his own personal values and attitudes.

I first became acquainted with Bennett Trust when a family member needed to go into the nursing home. I was so worried my parents would lose everything they ever worked for. They not only eased our fears, but saved my parents assets and got my father qualified for Medicaid benefits.
Mr. Bennett told us not to worry, that he would take care of everything - he did that and more.

I endorse this lawyer. I am proud to consider John Bennett as a colleague and mentor. His experience as an estate planning and elder law attorney is unparalleled. I have benefited from his insightful approach to many estate planning issues that we have discussed through the years.
