This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2017. See details
We are honored to receive the red mark of distinction since it shows that the Bennett Law Firm is committed to going to any ethical and appropriate length necessary to defend our clients and the legal system against corrupt prosecution and judges who should not be on the bench. Avvo refuses to post that this case is on appeal and is not final. Bennett should have never been placed on probation since the trial judge, Judge Carmen Kelsey, who has been removed from office and the prosecutor on the case, Tim Bersch, has left the OCDC disgraced and can no longer harass defendants. There was no DR violation and never should have been due to unjust and unfair rulings. If you want to learn the truth about Bob Bennett's State Bar of Texas victories over the State Bar of Texas Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel, please go to , where you will learn that presiding judge, former San Antonio Juvenile Judge Carmen Kelsey who was removed from office, committed error after error in this case. She can no longer sit as a presiding judge or even as a visiting judge. The San Antonio Express-News opined that she was unqualified to be on the Bench. Bennett's defense of a client resulted in her removal. Bennett's sanction in the case after the disbarment was reversed and one charged thrown out is presently under review by the Texas Supreme Court and has not been resolved. has refused to notate that the case is on appeal. The 14th Court of Appeals held that the disbarment was illegal and the case was reversed. Over a thousand Texas Attorneys asked that the case be reviewed and numerous others signed letters of support (#165) and amicus briefs (#27) that clearly show the prosecution and judgment in the case were a combined travesty of justice. These letters and briefs including some from those who attended the trial are also on the ocdc-revealed site. On this site, you will find more letters of support and attorney recommendations for Bob Bennett than for any other attorney in the State of Texas. No attorney in the State of Texas has the personal and first-hand experience and success record that Bennett has in administrative hearings. He won his own case and can do the same for you. Do you not want an attorney who is licensed to defend you who has felt what you are feeling and knows what it is to be wrongly prosecuted?

Thanks to this wonderful human being and his extraordinary intelligence as an attorney, I am now a proud (good standing) member of the Texas State Bar.
What differentiates Mr. Bennett from other lawyers specializing in licensing matters is that Mr. Bennet has been through it himself. No one can understand the stress and burden of potentially being denied a license to practice within the field he or she has dedicated their entire life to unless that person has been through it themselves. Thus, with Mr. Bennet on your side, you not only have an unbelievably talented attorney, but also one who has previously been in your shoes.
After hiring Mr. Bennet to represent me, I can wholeheartedly say, without any doubt whatsoever, you will not find another attorney specializing in this field who exerts the passion Mr. Bennet has for helping those facing licensing issues.
Mr. Bennett is exactly the type of lawyer attorney I aspire to be. He embodies the kindness and compassion that is highly preached about in the legal profession but rarely seen in practicing lawyers. My personal experience with Mr. Bennett stemmed from a professional licensing issue.
After months of diligently researching lawyers specializing in this field, I concluded that Mr. Bennett would be the right man for the job. Despite my research, however, I hesitated before reaching out to Mr. Bennett because of financial issues.
Thank God however a few weeks prior to my hearing, I was able to raise most of the reasonable fee he quoted me and therefore I decided to give Mr. Bennett another call. I explained to him my issues, both legal and financial; Mr. Bennett however, from the very beginning, showed interest in only one thing, my legal issues.
Before ever paying him a single dollar, he gave me selfless advice, for a worst-case scenario, on how I could resolve the matter myself if worse came to worst regarding my finances. I knew from that moment forward that Mr. Bennett was the attorney I would hire if my wife and I were able to raise the remainder of the very reasonable sum he quoted me.
Nonetheless, his selfless, priceless advice, guiding me on how to move forward on my own if my finances prevented me from hiring him, demonstrated his compassion and understanding, and most importantly, it showed me that Mr. Bennett's number one priority was to make sure my case concluded with a favorable and just outcome despite whether or not I hired him.
About a week after initially conversing with Mr. Bennett, I was finally able to raise the remainder of the money to hire Mr. Bennett (Thank God) and I immediately drove to Bennett & Associates to retain Mr. Bennett's continued counsel.
To keep it short, I can tell you that my instinct to hire Mr. Bennett, despite the red worded warning on his profile, was dead on. His counsel and representation were certainly worth the very reasonable fee I paid him and much more.
I can say, without any hesitation whatsoever, that if you have a licensing issue, Mr. Bennett is the man you want to hire. No matter your situation, whether you are struggling financially or believe you can resolve your issues personally, I still highly recommend giving Mr. Bennett a call because, first and foremost, his number one priority (from my entire experience with him) is to help you get the best result possible.
In essence, whether or not you want to hire an attorney to resolve your case, I highly recommend you reach out to Mr. Bennett prior to your hearing because at a minimum you will get the opportunity to consult his vast legal knowledge in this field and as a result increase your chances of winning a favorable decision from the licensing agency you are facing.
For me, Mr. Bennett, as referenced above, was able to get the entire case dismissed. If you decide to retain him,I have no doubt that Mr Bennet will do everything in his power to do the same for you. Good luck.
No attorney in the State of Texas has been personally involved with administrative hearings as has Bob Bennett. Let his knowledge and experience accomplish for you what he has been able to accomplish for so many others..

Partially Probated Suspension issued in TX, 2017
updated on 11/17/2021
Partially Probated Suspension means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. When the attorney returns to practice, he or she will be on probation, meaning the State monitors the attorney's activities for a period of time in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.
Robert's comment: “The judge who imposed the sanction was removed from office. The SBOT Assistant Disciplinary Counsel who handled the case has left the OCDC in disgrace and the Chief Disciplinary Counsel was replaced. If you go to www.ocdc-revealed.com, you will see that I was prosecuted for political reasons and the case was reversed. If you fight with vigor and determination for your clients, you will upset the powers that be. We fought, we won, and are now fully reinstated. We can win for you!”
