Tim represented me in a complex case where the employer refused to honor an employment contract. The company hired one of the big firms downtown, and spent more money with them trying to delay the case than it would have cost to just honor the contract.
In employment cases the company has vastly more resources than the individual. It is critical for individuals to select an attorney that knows how to, and has been effective at, dealing with large companies and big law firms. Tim guided my case through the process, and consistently triumphed over the big firm and the big companies resources.
The companies attorneys focused on legal tricks and delays, rather than the merits of the case. Tim was able to cut through all this and end up with a very favorable outcome.
Tim has a quiet and unassuming style that gets results. He cares about righting wrongs, is willing and able to stand up to the big guys, and get results for his clients.
Tim was able to look at my case, quickly determine the merits, and develop an approach to win over a much larger legal firm and a company willing to spend large amounts of money on the case.
In employment or contract cases the company has vastly more resources than an individual employee. Some companies are willing to use their resources to 'win at any cost', and some legal firms are happy to take the companies money and try to outlast an employees resources. Tim is effective in dealing with these issues, and knows how to focus on the merits of the case and win.
I have known and worked with a number of attorneys. Tim Bennett is one of the good guys. He is honest, caring, and focused on getting results for the client.
I recommend Tim Bennet as a top choice when selecting an attorney.

Tim Bennett won my five year old case against the VA medical center. Two other attorneys started my case but gave up when federal attorneys wore them down.
Mr. Bennett took my case and started an exhaustive discovery phase which helped him come to the conclusion that he could beat these government attorneys in court.
After several years we had our day in federal court. The jury trial lasted a week. Unanimously the jury concluded I had been wrongly discharged and deserved several years back pay. One of the jurors came up to Mr. Bennett after our win and asked for his card, stating, "If I ever need an attorney I want to hire you."
The final court judgment was for about a half million dollars (this included the award for attorney fees).
While the facts of my case may have favored a victory, several attorneys refused to even look at the facts of my case. And as I already said, two attorneys gave up on my case after taking it. It took Mr. Bennett to do the hard work of discover and win my case before a jury.
Mr. Bennett used professionally done displays and graphics which made it easy for the jury to understand complicated facts. He used expert financial witnesses to prove the government was lying about their stated reasons for my discharge. He produced documentation showing that the government made promises to employees that they had no intention of honoring (our smoking guns). And when the government tried to use witness lists to intimidate us, he called their bluff by thoroughly discrediting their witnesses to the point that the government decided not to even call these witnesses.
Winning this case significantly changed my life. I not only regained a great deal of my self worth, but the win improved the finances of my family significantly. This win will significantly impact the rest of my life and I will always be thankful to Mr. Bennett for all his hard work.
