Kurt David Bennett

About me

Finesse, tenacity, and polite persistence ... those are the skills required to get success in the types of cases I handle.  I have honed those skills through over 15 years of experience, both as a lawyer and as a Judge Pro Tem.  There is a time for brute force, but more often, the right word in the right ear at the right time is what is required to win the day.
