After law school, Mr. Bennett worked for the Public Defender’s Office in Orange and Broward Country, where he gained invaluable trial experience in two culturally and demographically distinct jurisdictions. He proudly served as the first chair in 38 trials during his tenure as an Assistant Public Defender, representing people accused of crimes ranging from simple misdemeanors to homicide, robbery, and white-collar crimes.
Following his work as a Public Defender, Mr. Bennett left criminal law to become a managing attorney for an insurance defense firm in Jupiter, FL. Working for insurance companies helped Mr. Bennett gain a unique insight into how insurance companies evaluate cases and approach litigation to deny claimants the fair value of a claim.
