I hired Margaret to help with my divorce. My ex-husband did not have an attorney and we needed someone that could help create an amicable agreement. Margaret helped navigate all of the potential pitfalls and really helped execute the divorce quickly and made it as simple as possible. She also helped greatly with how to handle our two children and was a wonderful advocate on their behalf.

I would like to thank Margaret Bennett for her diligent work in Family Law to educate us regarding the laws which she was instrumental in drafting. Her articles on the new income shares child support guidelines as well as the Parentage Act were extremely helpful and I appreciate her generosity of time in making presentations to practitioners to clarify the requirements and fine points of the new laws. Her contributions to the practice of family law in Illinois have been invaluable. Her recognition from the Illinois State Bar Association with the Richard H. Teas Legislative Support Award was richly deserved.

I found Ms. Bennett randomly on Collablaw.com, but she was also recommended to me about a week later by a friend who was referred to her by friends in upper-level management from several well-known companies in the area.
From day one Ms. Bennett and her staff were completely professional, timely, and focused on my case. More than that, I never felt like I was being contacted or billed excessively. Communication between me, Ms. Bennett, and her staff was always concise and everyone always seemed to be on the same page. Also, while divorce is a complicated, foreign and exhausting process, they were patient and persistent getting information from me.
Ms. Bennett has actively involved herself in Illinois family law and it showed during collaborative meetings as well as one-on-one phone conversations and in-person meetings. She absolutely used that knowledge to represent me to the best of her abilities, but you must remember that she can only pursue what you tell her. One thing that took me some time to realize is to be very specific in terms of what your wants and needs are -- she can't know what you want if you don't tell her. When I felt we were maybe drifting away from what I wanted it was a quick conversation to get back on track.
Myformer spouse and I didn't want to -- and couldn't afford -- a long, drawn-out divorce, and I believe Ms. Bennett took that to heart. I would absolutely recommend Margaret Bennett for a collaborative divorce and can only imagine what she would be like for the standard process -- either way, I wouldn't want to be on the opposing side.

Ms. Bennett is the best family law attorney in the Chicagoland area! Not only does Ms. Bennett care about her clients and the results of the cases she is involved in, but she cares about improving the state laws surrounding child support, maintenance, and other family law related issues. I highly recommend Ms. Bennett and her team to anyone looking for the best possible family law advice out there.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Margaret Bennett and her associate Emily Hansen on my divorce filing. The advice and guidance provided by Bennett Law was honest, accurate and proved to be a game changer in my proceedings. I highly recommend them for both mediation and extended divorce services.

I was very pleased with Ms. Bennett and her staff. My divorce was a difficult time for me, as I imagine it is for most. Throughout the entire process, from initial consultation through to the last day in court, Maggie was professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and caring. She and her staff were prompt to reply to my questions and always very understanding. My best interest was always at the center of everything they did. I highly recommend Bennett Law Firm.

With the help of Ms. Bennett and the Bennett Law Firm, my divorce was successfully completed in 2014. Though I was thousands of miles away during the proceedings, I never doubted that I was in capable hands. Ms. Bennett and her team helped me achieve a result that I firmly believed to be unobtainable.
A few months after the completion of my divorce, I contacted Bennett Law Firm to assist me in a post-decree matter. Within hours, I received a response to my email regarding my post-decree issue and within a week, the issue was resolved!
Ms. Bennett and her team provided me, as they always have, with the most professional and genuine assistance. My attorneys’ fees were very reasonable and well-worth the outstanding representation I received. It is comforting to know that if any further post-decree situations arise, I can turn to Bennett Law Firm for a quick and lasting resolution.
I highly recommend Bennett Law Firm for all of your pre and post-decree matters.
