"Words cannot express my gratitude! The first time I met Bradford Bennett he set my mind at ease. Brad listened to the details of my complex contempt of court case. I was convinced he believed in me. Brad and his team immediately began to develop a plan to defend the many charges that were brought against me. During our investigation we uncovered some very disturbing information that quickly turned the proceedings into a full blown custody case. Without hesitation Brad switched his focus from defending me to helping me retrieve my children. In a matter of days an emergency motion was filed and I had my three minor children living with me in my home. During the next 18 months Brad, Margaret and I spent a great deal of time preparing for and responding to motion after motion filed against me in an attempt to deflect from our case. Brad had the patience of a Saint when OC filed continuance after continuance. When we finally made it to trial it did not last long. Bradford Bennett’s intimidating superior command of the courtroom left no doubt in what the outcome would be. His extensive knowledge of case law had opposing counsel scrambling to keep up. Throughout the entire process Brad kept me grounded and sane. When I became frustrated or angry he would keep me focused on the bigger picture. I would not wish this situation on any family. The emotional roller-coaster was almost too much to bear. The personal concern that Brad showed for my children and me was genuine. Everything about the Bennett Law Firm from start to finish speaks of professionalism. I would recommend Bradford Bennett to anyone finding themselves in need of a truly gifted attorney."

"I reached out to Mr. Bennett by telephone when I was stationed in Korea. The first 6 to 7 months of my divorce process Mr. Bennett and only spoke over the phone and by email. The way Mr. Bennett conducted himself professionally with every aspect of my case. The loyalty that Mr. Bennett had in order to achieve the highest outcome of my case was outstanding. I could not ask for a better lawyer than him. The time, dedication and the patience that Mr. Bennett had with me in order to understand every aspect of my case. He never left no question unattended to include that every answer he gave I understood. I would recommend Mr. Bennett and his law team to everyone that would need one in the Chicago land area."

"Through a very long and challenging post-decree divorce process, including several petitions, Bradford Bennett remained the consummate professional. His honesty, integrity, confidence, expertise and compassion alongside his vast knowledge of the law, resulted in a successful and favorable agreement, avoiding an un-necessary trial. Bradford was prompt to return calls or emails from myself and from the opposing counsel, even when they were frequently evasive.  When required, Bradford was compelling and forceful with the OC, yet diplomatic so as to de-escalate issues when they arose. He was a master at the written law yet creative in finding solutions when it appeared we were at a standstill. Throughout the duration of our 18 months together, Bradford consistently remained on-task and fast-paced, yet empathetic to situations that arose.  Our situation caused me to run on high emotions at times, however; each time I spoke with Bradford, it immediately disarmed me. He helped maintain my focus on the true issues and kept me focused on the bigger picture, not getting caught up in the details. He had a perspective and a context that constantly reassured me, calmed me, and decreased the enormous anxiety I was feeling. I would highly recommend Bradford as your representation and while I am quite certain that as a result of his tireless efforts and a hugely favorable outcome for me, I will not be in this situation again, I would undoubtedly hire him again in the future."

"An attorney with such great caliber! Let’s be reasonable, if you are hiring an attorney, it’s probably not for a good and exciting reason. However, if you hire the right one (Brad Bennett) you are certainly in good hands. This attorney truly understands that clients work hard and have a family to support and a life to live; he is not one of your typical attorneys. He is a genuine and professional subject matter expert of the Chicagoland area and will fight with you every step of the way. There is a reason why he is the Illinois Super Lawyers “Rising Star” for the years 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, & 2016 and the Illinois Leading Lawyers “Emerging Lawyer” for the year 2015 as well as the NATIONAL Advocates Top 100 Matrimonial & Family Lawyer for the year 2015. A man of such integrity and initiative to not only get what you want as a client but to see through the opposing counsel and achieve matters that only benefits his clients. I, personally, wanted to simply be defensive to the petitions raised against me, however, with the help of Brad, I was able to respond back to my petitions aggressively -and- with a “Structured Parental Visitation Agreement” that was not in my original divorce decree. Picture Brad Bennett walking into court and all other attorneys tucking their tails between their legs; his aggressive demeanor, overwhelming focus, and tactics do just that. I couldn’t be any happier with my decision to hire Brad.

"Divorce, when you have children can be quite challenging. I was dealing with an extremely difficult situation with my ex husband regarding my decision to relocate my children. Mr. Bennett facilitated an agreement that both parties found acceptable. My move went smoothly and our transition has been amazing. I want thank Mr. Bennett for spending two days assisting me with moving on with my life and starting over with my children."
