About me

Attorney Kelly Q. Bennett has been a trial lawyer in Illinois since 1998. Since that time, he has concentrated his practice primarily in two areas of law:  Representing those charged with criminal activity and reprsenting those who have been seriously injured.

He also believes in the integrity of our legal system. In his criminal practice, Mr. Bennett has successfully defended countless individuals facing significant jail time and has secured multiple not guilty verdicts.

Mr. Bennett has also successfully prosecuted personal injury claims on behalf of his clients since 1998.  Through negotiated settlements and verdicts after trial, Mr. Bennett has secured millions of dollars for his clients, to help ease the burden of their injuries. Mr. Bennett has a passion for representing the negligently injured.
