About me

For a span that extends beyond 30 years, Robert Bennett has been trying to truly make a difference in the Minneapolis community, taking on cases of truly important matters. Mr. Bennett has more than often served as the plaintiff attorney on cases regarding civil rights law and police misconduct, motor vehicle accidents, product liability cases and commerical disputes. Known for his success on his high profile cases, such as the Abbey Taylor kiddie pool wrongful death case and the police shooting case involving Duy Ngo, Mr. Bennett still treats each case he takes the same - with the highest regards and unrivaled dedication. This sort of mindset is the foundation for Gaskins, Bennett, Birrell, Schupp LLP, who in 2012 was one of only six highly recommended Minnesota Plaintiff firms.
