Selecting a personal injury lawyer to represent you is extremely important. Just because a law firm is the biggest doesn’t mean that it’s the best. You might get to meet with an actual attorney at a big firm, but most likely you will get passed off to lawyers or support staff who don’t really have the experience to handle your case effectively. On the other hand, smaller or mid-sized law firms often offer distinct advantages. They tend to provide a more personalized approach, allowing you to work closely with an experienced attorney who will handle your case from start to finish. These firms often prioritize individualized attention, ensuring that you receive the highest level of expertise and support throughout the legal process. Moreover, attorneys at smaller firms often have a greater opportunity to focus specifically on personal injury law. They may have extensive experience in handling a wide range of personal injury cases and can offer specialized knowledge in this specific area. This expertise can prove invaluable when it comes to navigating the complexities of personal injury law, negotiating with insurance companies, and advocating for your rights and compensation.

Everyone in this office went above and beyond my expectations! They led me through a difficult process: they streamlined all of the insurance and medical paperwork seamlessly, navigated my claim and associated court proceedings, and fought for a generous settlement on my behalf. I was 100% satisfied with their work, communication, and timely closure, and would absolutely recommend them.

Mr. Bennett and Ms. Amanda were very prompt and to the point in completing task associated to my situation regardless of my difficult schedule, others involved that were not cooperative, or just additional factors that stalled the process for a short time. I am extremely thankful that I was kept out of the court room pretty much this entire process and now I can look to continue to heal from an unfortunate event. If you are looking for someone who acts with urgency and has many professionals on speed dial to assist in other related areas that you need his services for he is your guy. He with the team gets the job done. Thanks so much.

Carlton Bennet helped me through a bad auto accident where I almost lost my life. He was extremely informative, not pushy at all and really made me feel like I was in control the whole time. And he worked extremely fast he didn’t waste one second! Throughout the entire experience I could tell he was a master at his craft. Absolute boss!

We have had to use Carlton Bennett for two car accidents that weren’t our sons’ fault and we couldn’t be happier with the service, help, and outcomes. Mr. Bennett is such a kind man who cares about his clients. We have also been pleased to work with one of his legal assistants, Stephanie, who is equally awesome! Highly recommend this law office and grateful for all they’ve done for us.
