Annette Benson, Esq.

For over 29 years, I have represented countless men and women in divorce, custody, and other family law matters. Knowing the law is frankly not enough. I immerse myself in the details and the history of my client’s story. My insight into human nature and understanding of personalities help me anticipate their triggers and reactions and enables me to use my passionate voice to deliver a strategic narrative. I humanize the facts and evidence, evoking the emotional connection needed to achieve the desired outcome. My conviction is genuine, and my integrity is unwavering.

For me, being a zealous advocate is not my job, it’s who I am. I can only represent someone who is just as ready and willing to invest in themselves and their future as I am, because the relationships with my clients are built on mutual respect, honesty, grit, resilience, and trust.
