A Few Words From Our Satisfied Clients
These are actual correspondences from just a few of the people and families we have helped over the years.
“I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for all the care and concern you have shown me and my darling boys. Leon, I was completely dazzled by your articulate, poised and knowledgeable communication skills on our (recent) court date. Your legal expertise, professionalism and courage went above and beyond.
“To the entire Bennett legal team, I am blown away by your integrity, intelligence and all the hard work you have performed on my behalf. I will always be grateful for all of your efforts. You should be so proud of all that you do for families, and I know I am proud that you represented me.”
“I just wanted to say thank you again for all the hard work with my case. Because of you, I have a home, a family close by, and a bright future. In my eyes, I have it all. Thank you for all you did and continue to do to help everyone who is privileged to work with you.”
“I met Leon about seven years ago after hiring two attorneys prior who charged me a fortune with no results or forward progress after many frustrating months. I was finally referred to Leon, and the day I walked out of the first consultation, I finally felt someone was on my side. He had a strategy, a team and a goal. I call Leon my pit bull, as that’s what I needed for my contentious divorce.
“I sat with Leon many times in his office, and he heard my cries and anguish, but never took advantage of me. His honesty was refreshing as I asked him what he would do if it was his daughter in my position and he said, ‘Settle.’ I did, and I am thankful now looking back. I finally got my life back, and was able to focus on my work, my family and my faith. Leon could have ‘taken me’ for another year on this path, or litigated and just spent thousands and thousands more, but he was honest and had my interests at heart. I thank God for the day I met him!”
“Leon fought a clear path to fairness on my behalf after a previous lawyer tried and failed to help me through my divorce. (That lawyer) didn’t fight for time with my children or fair support fees, and I ended up paying for a big, fat nothing. Once Leon stepped in, he immediately started producing results, and my life slowly got better. Leon got me a fair time share with my two kids and made sure the child and spousal support reflected both party’s incomes. At the time, I was a mess and Leon put me back together. Bless Leon, and his super experienced staff and colleagues. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!”
