Emily A. Hansen
Emily handled my divorce/custody case and was instrumental in me getting residential custody of my two children. She was professional, knowledgeable and very understanding to the specifics of my case. The whole team at the Bennett Law group were just great.

Excellent Attorney
Emily Hansen and all of the attorneys at the Bennett Law Firm were excellent. They were compassionate, knowledgeable, and kept me well informed throughout the entire process. Emily Hansen always had my best interests in mind, and gave me excellent legal advice. My divorce was quick, and she made it as painless as possible. I am so grateful to her for the outstanding legal counsel and support. I would recommend her to anyone who is going through the divorce process.
