What do you do when you have an employee in Kansas City, Missouri that had a previous indiscretion in Seatle, Washington? Did I mention he is hispanic and spoke broken English.
We had tried in vain to determine exactly what our employee had done wrong over 16 years ago. He was a minor, couldn't speak English, and could not remember what exactly were the charges against him. Clearly this was a mess and we had failed miserably in an attempt to help him. We contacted some helpful person in Seatle, to this date I do not know whom reccommended Kurt. But, I do believe it was a miracle. It could have been someone in the filing department or someone who answered the phone somewhere that said call Kurt Bennett. At some point we spoke to Kurt Bennett. Because Kurt works from his heart he was willing to listen to our plight. "We have an employee, had some problems, we need help, and oh by the way we live in Kansas City, Missouri.
We talked with Kurt many, many times. He worked feverishly for someone he had never met and only had spoken with a well meaning employer. In the end we prevailed thru the tireless effort of Kurt Bennett. It was like he just didn't understand "it can't be done." He kept putting one foot in front of the other time and time again. We made at least two trips to Seatle for hearings. When it came to his knowledge of the law and what to do, he was spot on. The whole story of course is much longer and I am horrible at condensing, so I will finish with a heartfelt thanks and a complete endorsement of his skills and knowledge. I have faith in this man as a lawyer but more importantly I have faith in him as a man.
If you are looking for someone to represent you, there is not a finer lawyer anywhere. He is commited to represent you and find a solution. God bless him, as he blessed our situation!

I hired Kurt to help me with my divorce case after he was recommended to me. I was put at ease from the beginning by his truthful demeanor and knowledge of the law. It was also clear that he understood the emotional implications of a case like this.
Divorce is scary when you have no idea what to expect and how to walk through the process. Kurt was very upfront about what to expect, what my options were and what he would recommend. He was able to paint a clear picture for me so that I could make the choices that were best for my circumstances.
I am so glad that I found him and that he took my case, he was professional, quick to respond and available when needed. You never think you will need a lawyer, but when you do, Kurt Bennett is an excellent choice.

Kurt is a phenomenal attorney! I am grateful for the opportunity to be mentored by Kurt. Kurt’s passion for the law and dedication to his clients is what separates him from other attorneys. He is always the first name on my list when I need to make a referral.

Kurt Bennett is a lawyer you can trust. Kurt is bright, creative and hard-working. I have known Kurt for over a decade and have observed first-hand his skill and ability to navigate the legal mazes in favor of his clients. Kurt is as good as anyone in getting the best result.
