Bennett has done an excellent job
Bennett handled my divorce case efficiently, conscientiously and compassionately. He gave great advice about the inevitable grey areas that arise from these matters. He has continued to be very helpful and available for follow-up after the case was closed.

Bennett Myers handling of my case
Bennett handled my case exactly how I asked him to, he covered all the bases and made sure everything was done how I wanted it. I'm very happy with his prices and his overall services I would recommend him without doubt.

Thoughtful insight and simplified processing
We had put off updating our wills and creating healthcare POA/living will for quite sometime. Bennett made an overwhelming task easily understood so we could get the documents in place that will clarify our wishes if we are unable. We appreciate his insight and the clarity he provided so we felt comfortable. We would highly recommend him and his staff!

Consultation
I set with him, explained what's going on, I received all the information I needed to educate myself from Mr Myer's. Very friendly, good hearted family oriented man, my $50.00 was wait every minute I was with him. Been a woman he didn't even think twice to not help me. Is a fair man. Is not there to get anyone but help in every situation. It was my pleasure to meet you Mr Myer's and recommend without any doubt. He's fees are very reasonable too. God bless you Sir. Will return again.

Patient, detailed, intelligent, extremely knowledgeable, great at strategy
Bennett, kept his cool and guided me through an intense and emotionally charged custody and placement case. Even though my ex hired an obscenely expensive attorney who was constantly on the attack just to break you and make you feel small, Bennett kept his cool and helped me keep my cool throughout. It’s not always the case with people (and in my personal experience with attorneys) but he actually has a heart! We won our case, thanks to Bennett, my child is safe and happy. Thank you to, Mr. Myers and his team.

Beyond grateful for a job well done
Bennett was beyond amazing! He was very thorough with great follow through. His confidence and knowledge of the law helped put our minds at ease when we felt so uncertain with our custody situation. As the case was wrapping up and things were happening quickly, we felt like we were his main priority has he was promptly responding to multiple emails and phones calls, even after hours. We appreciate everything he did for our family and we can't thank him enough!

Mr.
When you're going through a divorce you need a good, honest lawyer. My divorce was draggning on and I had to find a new laywer, that's when I contacted Bennett. He took care of everything. He answered my questions, finished the paperwork, and my divorce was finally over within a few short months. I appreciate that he was very proactive and didn't charge me insane fees. I highly recoomend Bennett!

Seriously the best!
I hired Mr Meyers in 2016 for my divorce and I’m very thankful, I did! With going through this hard time, struggles with my ex, the unknown, he was always willing and able to talk me through everything and ease my mind. Then this year another matter came up and with one phone call I was relaxed in knowing I had him in my corner and explained everything. I would recommend Attorney Meyers to anyone! Thank you Bennett!

Very thorough and professional
My husband and I met with Bennett to draft our WILL. Bennett was professional and very thorough from start to finish throughout the process. He went above and beyond our expectations. We will definitely recommend his services to our friends and family.

Thorough Advocacy and Unparalleled Representation
I came to Bennett in a time of crisis in my life, I would imagine, like so many of his clients, my marriage had crumbled. A friend of mine, a La Crosse County Social Worker, who had been impressed with his advocacy as a GAL and knew he was also a divorce attorney, recommended him to me. Having no experience with courts, divorce law, or such an all-consuming catastrophe, it was paramount that I find someone who could sift through the emotion and pain that comes with any divorce, and who would objectively represent and defend the issues most important to me as a woman, a mother, and a professional. My situation was further complicated by various kinds of abuse, restraining orders, intentional sabotage of my financial situation, and varying degrees of contrariness by my ex-husband. Had it not been for Bennett's resolve, stoicism (when antagonized by my ex-husband), guidance, and responsiveness, I am doubtful I would have survived my divorce with so much of my sanity intact. Most notably, Bennett represented the issues that were most important to my children and I, and had the foresight to help me make decisions that would be most beneficial in the long run. Initially, I was hesitant to seek representation from a man, for the simple reason that I questioned if a man could comprehend the situation I was in and empathetically and thoroughly represent me, turns out this was an unfounded bias on my part; Bennett quickly proved I had made the right decision, with his responsiveness, fairness, willingness to address the various challenges that arose, and empathy towards my unique situation. I can’t count the number of times I had to contact him after hours, or on weekends for legal advice, or how many times I had to schedule calls or meetings with him outside of his normal hours. His assistant Craig matched his dedication and responsiveness; he was prompt to return my messages when Bennett was unavailable, letting me know when Bennett would be able to get back to me. While those 18 months were easily the most challenging of my life, the assistance of Bennet and his staff made the whole experience survivable. Bennett is not the kind of attorney that will show up to court in a $10K watch and act as if he’s doing you a favor at an inconvenience to him, as I can attest from experience, Bennett will represent you in a respectful, passionate, factual, well-researched manner, drawing on vast past experience and a commanding understanding of the law, and the complete understanding that nothing short of your future and well-being are on the line. If I could give him 6 stars - I would; I highly recommend Bennett for any legal needs. Undoubtedly, I will call on him in the future should the need arise and suggest him to any loved ones or friends, the people I care most about, for any legal challenges life should throw their way.

Divorce Attorney
I would like to personally and highly recommend Bennett Meyers for your Attorney. His knowledge and case preparation was incredible. He will save you money on Attorney Fees with his personal and private formated system. I have been to many Attorneys in my 66 years and Bennett is by far the best. His honesty and “good guy” demeanor is beyond reproach but, don’t let that fool you, he will be and has been tough when need. From what I could see, he is well liked by the the Judges and trusted by other Attorneys

Huge help in my divorce
I do not have much experience with lawyers, but I did talk to a few before deciding on Bennett. He was a good listener. He did not try to push his own agenda or complicate matters to increase his billable hours. He was calm and thorough and thoughtful. He had helpful suggestions when I didn't know what to do. He responded quickly and thoroughly via any medium (text, call, email). Although divorce is never a pleasant experience, I was exceedingly grateful to have had Bennett to help me work through it.

Good attorney
Bennett did a good job with my divorce. I appreciated several things about his approach. He is a straight-shooter and isn't afraid to tell you things you don't want to hear. He took the time to find out what I wanted and crafted a deal that I felt was fair. His fees were reasonable. He did a fair amount of work for this online and he responded to emails in a timely manner. He's a pleasant man who is easy to talk with. I would recommend him for work in his areas of specialty.

My strength when I had none
Bennett is a great advocate, listener and above all, compassionate attorney. He handled my case quickly, always explained the process and answered all of my questions. When I felt like giving in to all my exes outrageous demands, just to get it over with, he always gave me strength to get through the emotions and think of the long term. He was always in contact and didn't waste my time or money on frivolous arguments between lawyers. I would recommend Bennett to all who are in need of an honest, straightforward attorney.

Calm, confident and capable- everything you need.
After working on my child support and custody case with several different attorneys over the years with mixed results, I am blessed to have found Atty Meyers. He helped me navigate some complex situations and decisions with a deep expertise on not only the letter of the law, but also how things usually play out. In addition to swiftly providing the necessary services (processing forms, finding info), he and his firm did a great job of representing me in (sometimes hostile) negotiations with my daughter's mother. Atty Meyers does not simply provide legal services- he provides council. He helped me wether the storm of some difficult times and keep a clear, action-oriented perspective in order to make the best possible decisions for myself and my child. He's worked with me as a partner to take a long term strategy and handle all the bumps along the way. His honesty, candor and abilities are remarkable. I would not hesitate to recommend Atty Meyers.
