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.

I was in a car accident back in September of 2023 where I was rear ended and had a total loss for my vehicle followed by some bodily injuries. I was referred to Mr. Bennett by a co-worker who insured he me he would help get justice for my case. Throughout the process of my case, Mr. Bennett and his paralegal made such a great team in helping to keep me updated on everything as far as insurances, medical bills, doctor appointments, and final adjustments. It was a pleasure having Mr. Bennett and his paralegal on my side to help me fight this case. I wouldn’t have been able to do this alone. I highly recommend Mr. Bennett for handling any personal injury cases because he and his team are very professional, act in a timely manner, but they also gain report with you and are very empathetic and understanding of each persons case and take initiative to make you feel safe and confident in your decisions with seeking legal help. I appreciate Mr. Bennett and his team for helping me to achieve what would’ve seemed impossible on my own. I highly reccommend!!! Best, LG

About a year ago, my husband and I with 2 friends were on a crosswalk when a pickup truck failed to stop and hit him. After spending almost the whole night at the emergency room, he was released. Since we live from another state, we decided to find a law firm who can represent him. Going through Google, we found The Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett. Stephanie was the the legal assistant assigned to his case. She was so kind, patient, knowledgeable and very compassionate. Even with the time difference, she always responds whenever we need to clarify something. We were completely impressed on how Stephanie and the other staff of The Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett handled his case. We will highly recommend their service to anyone.
