Failed in every way!
I hired him and so did my cousin for the same type of case. Parental Alienation- Custody problems. The same result in both cases. Dennis didnt know what he was doing. Didnt prepare for anything. Couldnt speak in court as a knowledgeable attorney. He left me to represent myself so that he could go defend a Jeffco judge in a divorce case. I fired him and hired an amazing attorney who wrapped up everything in my case beautifully. Then Dennis sued me for 12k when he clearly didnt do the work. When i fired him i owed him 2 maybe 3 grand. Not 12. Well, Dennis just seized and garnished my bank account for 12k, didnt notify me of any hearings. He is COMPLETLY underhanded and should not be practicing law. PERIOD.

Response from Dennis Bonner March 30, 2015
We're sorry you had a bad experience with our firm. This matter does not sound familiar, and we strive for the utmost client satisfaction in every case and have NEVER sued or garnished for wages. Please contact me directly to discuss your specific concerns. This seems to be a misunderstanding- or possibly a different attorney that you meant to review.

Case -May 2013
hired Dennis Bonner' law firm in June 2012 to represent me in a simple child support/visitation case. I deployed to Afghanistan in January 2013 and in March 2013, Dennis Bonner informed me of his motion to withdraw from the case. The motion to withdraw took me by total surprise especially since I had provided Mr. Bonner with all items and documents that he had requested before I deployed. After talking with Dennis Bonner, he decided to continue to represent me in my case while I was deployed to Afghanistan. I put my full trust in Mr. Dennis Bonner; however, in my absence, I found out that Mr. Bonner had missed court appearances. In addition, Mr. Bonner rarely emailed or called me and totally failed to inform me of the status of my case. I was not made aware of any case hearings and I found out about case ruling month's after they had been ruled on and to add insult to injury, I found out case rulings thru the opposing party. Again, I was informed by the opposing party -month's later -of the outcome of my case, not by my hired attorney Mr. Bonner's inadvertence and excusable neglect were clearly recognizable and on display in my case. I put my full and complete trust in Mr. Dennis Bonner and he misrepresented and essentially neglected my case. I would not recommend Mr. Bonner as an attorney to any client.
