We just entered a plea in a DUI case and got the best results I could have expected. Two other charges were dropped prior to finalizing today. Mr. Bennett kept me well informed along the way. From the beginning I felt that I made a great decision trusting him with my outcome.
I consulted Mr. Bennett when I was faced with D.U.I. And 5 other charges. The one characteristic that I found appealing about Mr. Bennett as opposed to other lawyers In which I've consulted in the past was his honesty and how straight forward he was from the very beginning. Mr. Bennett made me no promises, he simply told me what the consequences of the charges could be, and presented the possible scenarios and ways In which I could improve my resolution. Thanks to Stan Bennett, I was able to have all other charges besides the DUI dropped which was beyond the ideal resolution in which I was hoping for. I would HIGHLY recommend anyone charged with a DUI or similar charges to consult with Stan Bennett as their attorney.
You couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable and effective attorney in the Middle Tennessee area. Mr. Bennett consistently shows kindness and understanding to his clients in difficult situations, and presents himself with confidence in the courtroom. After representing me in my divorce case several years ago, Mr. Bennett has always been approachable and helpful in matters related to parenting plan as time passed. He is very responsive and takes the time to set a nervous client as ease in stressful situations. His guidance in preparing for court is also thorough. As a single mother who doesn't understand all the intricacies of the law, I was thankful to have Mr. Bennett in my corner to explain all the legal options available to us as we prepared to make changes to the parenting plan. He accompanied me to mediation to make sure all our interests were protected and that I understood how the process worked. The office staff is very friendly and helpful, as well. As a client, you will feel comfortable and assured with Mr. Bennett on your side. I highly recommend his representation.
I was a client of Mr. Bennett's, he handled my divorce and MDA resolution, he was able to keep me from going to trial from the MDA resolution and was able to save me time and money from avoiding trial. I like that he was very down to earth and open to my ideas and opinions.
Stan is a true professional. He is extremely helpful and very knowledgeable! I have known Stan for 40 yrs . He is an honest and trust worthy advocate for his clients.
A difficult, seemingly unresolvable situation was handled for me by Mr. Bennett. I faced fines and other penalties and he resolved the situation quickly and to my complete satisfaction. He leads first class legal group here in Murfreesboro and should I need an attorney in the future I certainly will call him.
Stan is a great lawyer. He found a way to do what other attorneys told me was impossible. He considered all aspects that could directly and indirectly help my case. He's very experienced and works fast. He's also very polite and easy to talk to which made the process less nerve racking.
I came to Mr. Bennett for an order of protection case. he listened to my side of the story and determined that I was telling the truth. He said don't worry we are going to beat this case. Once we entered court he was so thorough in his preparation that whatever the petitioner said was true, Mr. Bennett had the facts to show that person up as a liar. needless to say we won the case and I was able to have this ludicrous case dismissed. I am truly grateful for the services of Mr. Bennett and his law firm.
Mr. Bennett could not have handled my case more efficiently. He knew how the whole situation would play out before we even got to my hearing. He advised me to take care of a few requirements that would be part of my unsupervised probation (AA meetings and community service). So on the day of my hearing, I had already completed everything besides exercising good and lawful behavior for one year. My Public Intoxication charge was retired and expunged on the day of my hearing and my Underage Consumption was retired and expunged on the day of my review. Not only have my charges been completely eradicated from the system now, but thanks to Mr. Bennett we flew through my hearing; he was able to make sure my case was heard first and the whole ordeal took approximately 30 minutes. He has responded to all of my additional questions concerning my case and charges quickly and thoroughly. He's a very professional and helpful guy.
Stan Bennett is one of the best! He is knowledgeable, caring, and very competent. I have been in an ongoing battle with my ex husband for years and no one could help me. I admit it was a very difficult case. But I expected after paying lawyers thousands of dollars someone who knew their way around the legal system. But I found out quickly that's not always the case! But Stan has restored so much of my faith in lawyers and their abilities. If your looking for a great attorney to fight for you Stan is your man! He is not only a great attorney but also a wonderful person and Christian brother and I'm blessed to have met him. I can't say or give enough recommendations. Hire him...the proof is in the pudding.
My family was dealing with a legal matter that was taking a toll on our lives. This was mainly because of poor representation. Mr. Bennett was refered to us by another highly respected attorney, Mr. Rick Mansfield. Because of Mr. Bennetts' knowledge of the law, determination to fight for your rights and expertise in his field, our problems were resolved. Mr. Bennett will from this day forward handle all of our legal matters . I have also recommended him to all my family, co-workers and friends. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a competent , well established attorney.
Mr. Bennett did an excellent job for us! He got my son a lighter sentence.He got us everything we wanted. He was very professional but friendly and made us feel welcome and that we were in good hands. I would recommend him for you or your loved one.
I am in college and had a VOP and was introduced to Mr. Bennett by a friend and when I met with him he already had prices, a realistic over view of what would happen, and the course I should take to wipe my record clean. I followed all of his instructions and when my court date arrived I was in and out of court within 10 minutes with a clean record. Whenever I called him and left a voicemail he responded in a timely manner and was very personable and understanding of my case. He knew me by name and gave me professional advice and kept me calm when I thought I had no way out. I would recommend him to anyone who was looking for a dependable lawyer. Another great perk is that he is well known and respected in the court system and knows exactly how my case was going to play out and how I should presume to stay out of further trouble. I could not thank him enough for getting me out of trouble!
Stan Bennett is a great attorney. He got me a good result and I am very happy with his services. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
Mr. Bennett handled my very difficult divorce case. He was extremely supportive and helpful throughout the entire process. A year after my divorce was finalized, there were further complications and without his help and advice, I do not think things would have gone as well as they did. I am very glad I chose to work with Mr. Bennett and would recommend him to anyone who found themselves in need of a lawyer.
I hired Stan after an almost two year long case, and he graciously took over my case and went to bat for me knowing it was a difficult case. After numerous hours spent with the DA and judge, Stan remained patient and kind. He ended up having to do a lot of extra work on my case that we didn't anticipate, but he remained on top of things and came through for me when no one else could. I would never hire a lawyer besides him in the future. His paralegal Carri was so sweet and helpful. When Stan is in court or busy, she is always responsive to clients' needs. She did a lot of research and helped him out a lot in my case. I am grateful to them for all their had work.
I had two existing bench warrants from almost ten years ago, I was afraid to face the charges because I feared the penalty would be great. Mr. Bennett did an extraordinary job with my case he got one of my charges completely dropped and the other reduced to a simple fine. He and his staff worked with my situation and treated me fairly. If you ever find yourself in a jam I recommend his services.
Stan. Took my case and got me the best outcome possible. Always on time and defiantly stayed in touch with me as I am in a different state. Kerri was always knowledgeable concerning the case. As far as I'm concerned, he and his staff are the best!!
Stan Bennett was an amazing attorney. He is honest, tells you what to expect, and is not just trying to get your case. I would highly recommend Stan to anyone. Thank you Stan for helping my family when in need.
We recently hired Stan Bennett to help our 20 year old son with a VOP charge. Dealing with the legal system can be very disconcerting but Stan helped our son through the process and got him the best possible outcome. Even though the original charge happened in Tennessee we live out of state. My son met the requested requirements and Stan was able to get the bench warrant recalled which meant he didn’t have to fly to Tennessee. Stan is in the process of getting the case expunged right now. It’s been a long road and we are happy to have it over and done thanks to Stan Bennett! We chose Stan based on all his excellent recommendations and now I can add ours as well.
After researching online for DUI attorneys in his area, he seemed like one of the most highly recommended ones. I did a free consultation with him; he explained what he would try to do, what he thought the best outcome could be, and had a flat retainer fee upfront. He was always easy to keep in touch with during and outside of normal business hours, and easily answered all of my questions about my situation. Even before receiving the outcome of my case he was easy to work with and honest about what he thought my outcome could be; he really helped put my mind at ease throughout the process. In the end, he was able to get a very favorable outcome for me. I cannot recommend him enough!
Stan Bennett is an affordable lawyer who is trustworthy and competent. He puts forth all of his effort into helping you and your case. He lays it out straight and lets you know the best and worst case scenarios. He is very easy to get in touch with and returns all phone calls and emails within 24 hours. During my case, he got my charged dropped down when it was almost supposed to be impossible. I would highly recommend hiring Stan Bennett as your lawyer.
I recently found myself in need of an attorney, and I am so happy that I was able to secure Mr. Bennett as my representation. He was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to get to know him as a person, and I am forever grateful for all that he was able to accomplish on my behalf. I cannot overstate how overwhelmingly helpful it was to have Mr. Bennett on my side. I strongly recommend his counsel to anyone with any legal need.
Mr. Bennett was more than helpful with my case. He treated the case very professionally and helped me make the best decisions. I would recommend Mr. Bennett to any of my friends and family.
Stan has helped out whenever me or anyone in my family need an attorney. He has helped me with three separate cases in the past. In all of them, he always listened to everything I had to say and was always available or called back quick whenever I had a question. He really knows his stuff! Also, he's very nice and goes out of his way to help me the way I need help.
He works around my schedule with my homebound wife, and always makes sure I'm really comfortable on the court date. Each time after the cases were finished, he's called to check and make sure everything was going alright with me. If I ever need a lawyer again, I know who I'm calling. I really appreciate everything Stan did for me and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone who needs a good lawyer.
If you want to know who is a good doctor, ask another doctor or nurse. If you want to know who a good attorney is, ask an attorney. I personally know the members of this firm and they are ethical, contentious, and very competent attorneys. Dinah Michael is an exceptional mediator. Stan Bennett worked for insurance companies for years so now knows their tricks, so he is a good person to hire for a personal injury case.
My experience with Stan Bennett was great. He did a better job than I could ask for and really made the process stress free. I was well informed and I couldn't have ended up with a better deal than what he got me. Hiring a good attorney is more important than some think. If your in the Murfreesboro area and you are looking for a quality attorney, Stan is your man.
Stan Bennett is an great attorney, he really knows his stuff. He looks out for his client's best interest and makes sure you know what is going on and let's you know all of your options. I really liked having Stan as my attorney, he made the situation very easy to deal with. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is in need of an attorney.
Stan has helped my family on three occasions over 8 years. In every case, he took charge, knew what he was doing, knew people in high places, got things moving, and stayed on top of it until it was done. He kept us updated on the progress. We knew that we were in good hands. It truly eases the tension to know that you are well-represented and that people in power that would normally ignore you will have to sit-up and take notice when Stan is battling for you.
After interviewing three attorneys to represent my son, Stan Bennett was selected based upon his thorough and detail-oriented approach, as well as his caring attitude. He presented best and worst case scenarios, yet commanded control of the matter, thereby providing a sense of relief in the face of our difficulty. Additionally, he was highly responsive and timely in his follow-up. In short, the charge was drastically reduced, with the matter to be completely expunged from record at conclusion of one year of good conduct.
Stan delivered gold standard service during our time of greatest need, and I highly recommend him in any capacity he specializes. His commitment to excellence served my son well, yielding favorable results, and will undoubtedly provide the same for other clients as well. My son and I will forever hold him in highest regards, based upon his professionalism and successful delivery of high quality results.
In my case, a nasty situation re-emerged from 20 years ago when i was falsely accused. The proper paperwork had not been submitted back then and it was keeping me from getting a wonderful job in the field that i love. Stan took my case and not only did hours of research into the archives, he also contacted all the right people to clear my name. His wealth of knowledge and attention to the details were invaluable! I got the job that I wanted and thank Stan for making that possible!
We recently met with Mr. Bennett to help us with a business contract. He was very knowledgeable and explained every detail of the contract to us so that we would know exactly what we needed to do to move forward with this matter. Thanks to Mr. Bennett, we now feel much more comfortable with our situation!! I would highly recommend him for any legal matter & would not hesitate to utilize his services again myself in the future if ever needed.
Stan is a very professional Attorney. He was easy to communiacte with and had compassion for us knowing the circumstances were unjust. He did exactly as he promised and we were very pleased with outcome. We would highly recommend Stan.
Stan has helped me with two separate family cases in the past. In both of them, he always listened to everything I had to say and was always available or called back quick whenever I had a question. He really knows his stuff! Also, he's very nice and went out of his way to help me the way I needed help. He worked around my schedule with my homebound wife, and made sure I was comfortable on the court date. I hope I don't ever need a lawyer again, but if I do I know who I'm calling.
Very professional and experienced. Always kept me informed. Gave me great advice and saved me quite a bit of money. Honest, knowledgeable, and very effective lawyer. Some of the best money I ever spent.
Mr. Bennett is an amazing criminal defense attorney, he not only took my case (which was a very difficult one) but he also kept me informed and would always ask how my wife and kids were doing, he cares! In a world that has increasingly grown uncaring for people (especially people in "trouble") Mr. Bennett was a welcome breath of air. People make mistakes and he understands that. I am truly pleased with the results I got in the courtroom. Mr. Bennett was excellent in his negotiating with the DA. THANK YOU!!
Mr. Bennett was amazing! I would definitely recommend him! He cares about getting you the best deal and he will get it for you. He helped me a lot and everything went so smooth. If you are in any kind of trouble Mr. Bennett is the way to go.
I am confused about the only review on this page. It is so not the truth. I have had Mr. Bennett as my lawyer a couple of times and know him very well. Most attorneys know that they make alot of money of you and that is all that they care about. However, Mr. Bennett really does care about you as a person. He always asks about what is going on in my life, and cares about my well being. In the courtroom he tries his absolute best to get you in the least amount of trouble as possible, and almost always succeeds! I got out of a lot of trouble that i so deserved to be in, and without him I couldn't have. I already have recommended him to other people and will continue to do so forever. Great Lawyer and you will not be disappointed. Hiring him was worth literally every penny!
