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.
