The Bennett Law Firm, P.A. is pleased to announce that two of the firm’s attorneys were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2013 (Copyright 2012 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, SC).
Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive per-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion is Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.

- Employment Law – Management
- Labor Law – Management
- Litigation – Labor and Management
