Posted by Michael Krzystofczyk
Let’s be reasonable, if you are hiring an attorney, it’s probably not for a good and exciting reason. However, if you hire the right one (Brad Bennett) you are certainly in good hands. This attorney truly understands that clients work hard and have a family to support and a life to live; he is not one of your typical attorneys. He is a genuine and professional subject matter expert of the Chicago-land area and will fight with you every step of the way. There is a reason why he is the Illinois Super Lawyers "Rising Star" for the years 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, & 2016 and the Illinois Leading Lawyers "Emerging Lawyer" for the year 2015 as well as the NATIONAL Advocates Top 100 Matrimonial & Family Lawyer for the year 2015. A man of such integrity and initiative to not only get what you want as a client but to see through the opposing counsel and achieve matters that only benefits his clients. I, personally, wanted to simply be defensive to the petitions raised against me, however, with the help of Brad, I was able to respond back to my petitions aggressively -and- with a “Structured Parental Visitation Agreement” that was not in my original divorce decree. Picture Brad Bennett walking into court and all other attorneys tucking their tails between their legs; his aggressive demeanor, overwhelming focus, and tactics do just that. I couldn’t be any happier with my decision to hire Brad.
WANT TO WIN THE FIGHT? .....HIRE RIGHT!

From the initial consultation to our first court appearance Brad showed great knowledge and demonstrated his experience. Brad was able to help me gain temporary custody of my son during a turbulent time in my life. His team is fast and available for any questions I had. Brad would also call just to check in and see how I was doing which I think is a great show of compassion and professionalism on his part. Overall I am very satisfied in retaining Brad.

My wife and I met Brad Bennett through a friend. Once we met with him, we knew that we were in good hands and we were very confident going into this unfortunate matter with Brad representing us. He is a young and very talented lawyer who definitely is very knowledgeable when it comes to family law. Not only that, he goes out of his way to make sure you understand every situation you are about to go through. He keeps you grounded and makes sure you stay focused on the real issues and what truly matters which is family. Brad worked tirelessly to get our situation resolved without having to set foot in court which was one of our goals. No child should ever have to see their parents fight in a court room where he/she might have to get involved. That was my main issue when I met Brad. I specifically told him that I don’t want my daughter to get involved which she didn’t. Without Brad, I am sure we would never have gotten the results we wanted. He said it himself, “it is rare to get a case that is initiated by the opposing party which results in me gaining everything and nothing for the opposing party.” But that just shows how great Brad is. He will do everything he can to get the results you deserve. We are truly grateful for the Bennett & Bangser group for the dedication and amazing results.

I was referred to Brad Bennett through a close friend. From the time we had our first consultation, and I had the pleasure of meeting Marc Bangser, I knew that everything was going to be okay- that I had the right team by my side representing me.
Divorce is a very complicated thing, Brad and Marc made me feel safe, secure and confident in all ways, in all steps. During the process, I was able to let go of the logistical side and really focus on the emotional one knowing that Brad and Mark had a strong grip on my best options, my best interest always in front.
Talented, kind, diligent, problem-solving and loyal- these gentlemen are a prize. Customer service is in one word, excellent.
It has been a true pleasure being represented by Bennett & Bangser.

I immediately felt as though I was in good hands from the initial consultation. Brad was thorough, intelligent, straight-forward, and personable. I'm very grateful for all he did for me and my son. He is a blessing to family law.

I highly recommend Brad and the team. I had a very difficult divorce process and, first and foremost, I was focused on my children. Brad helped me devise and execute a strategy that enabled me as the sole, working parent to be the residential custodian and from there to finalize all other matters. Under great pressure in very, very difficult situations we finalized the divorce on better terms than I could have hoped for at the outset. The process was tied up in knots and going nowhere initially; there were plenty of opportunities for the process to get dragged out further or to take a bad turn, and Brad managed it all expertly. Highly recommend.

I think Brad is wonderful! Very easy to work with. He's very knowledgeable in his field and prompt in returning calls. He well exceeded my expectations even with dealing with a very irritating opposing side. He's a charmer! Thanks Brad!

Brad and Marc make a great team whose strengths compliment each other. I not only had to use them for my divorce but also for post-divorce custody issues. They walked me through every step, always presented me my options, and always made me feel as though they were acting in my (and my children's) best interest. They make sound recommendations and do so with thorough legal knowledge as well as thoughtful tactical planning. Once Brad took over my divorce case from a previous attorney, the stalling subsided and the case finalized shortly after. He was available when I needed him and I felt he truly had my back. I would (and have) recommended him to others in need of his expertise and will certainly use his services again when the time comes.

Brad and Marc worked as a team to help me through a very lengthy and contentious divorce. I was happy with the outcome and felt the final decision was more than fair. Brad has a very direct approach and kept everyone focused on the outcome, rather than getting bogged down in the details. When things got emotional he could refocus both sides and stick to the facts. Marc had the ability to read people and could give insight into the opposing side's views and requests. He seemingly was one step ahead and could predict what they would be asking, and determined ahead of time the best way to counter.
Both had a deep knowledge of the laws and had enough experience that they apparently have seen all strategies and knew how to deal with them. Nothing caught them off guard. Brad was very timely in his responses and was always pushing things along when the other side was lagging in returning comments or materials.
Overall I was very impressed and satisfied with the outcome. I would recommend Brad and Marc to others in the same boat.

Brad worked diligently with me to throughout the divorce process to make sure we obtained the best possible outcome. I say "we" because I felt like Brad truly partnered with me and had my best interest, and the best interest of my child, at heart. Brad was patient, thorough, caring, unassuming, responsive and constantly discussing options with me. Brad was generous with his time and didn't make me feel like the "meter was running" all the time. I would recommend Brad to anyone who needs the services of an attorney no matter what your situation is.
