"​Bennita was extremely professional. She was there for me and guided me through my case from day one. Everything worked out pretty perfect and that is all because of Bennita's knowledge and how well prepared she was. I think she did an excellent job!"
"​I was confident in having great representation by my attorney Bennita."
"​She is doing a great job and has been articulate and been able to develop a good methodology going forward with things. She has been spot on with everything so far."
"My case resulted in a dismissal and I think Bennita did well getting us to that point. I connected with Bennita almost instantly due to our shared interest in diversity and equality, so I believe it was divine intervention that she was assigned to my case. She is very friendly, frank and her diverse background in family law was very helpful in my case. In different circumstances I would include her in my circle of friends and I hope that she would do the same."
​"She's really been there, is down to earth and straight forward. I'm definitely impressed. She's very knowledgeable and direct. She gave me all the facts, even if I didn't want to hear it."
​"Bennita was excellent.  Client also stated that her paralegal Derek Warner was awesome as well.  Client stated they both always returned calls quickly and were wonderful to work with.​"
