  • When I had my first consultation with Dawn Bennett, I immediately knew how very fortunate I was to find someone with all the qualities I was looking for and the personality to honestly and firmly consider all the factors without cutting corners or compromising personal or professional integrity. Read MoreDawn takes the time to ask all the right questions, encourages you to ask questions yourself and very clearly explains all your legal rights/obligations and the different options available, with focus on least acrimonious approach. Her legal briefs, correspondences and documentary submissions are of such a consistently high quality that I am truly amazed. The care and attention that she extends to my case shows a total understanding that there is no one size fit all solution to your unique situation.
    A divorce is never a frivolous exercise but a serious life changing event, I am very blessed to have Dawn as my legal counsel through this very traumatic transition. I am tempted to say never, since no one should be so unfortunate, but I will safely say, should I ever have to go through this experience again, I would be a very happy return client.

  • I was a new immigrant to Canada and raising two young children when my husband filed for divorce. Now, not only was I adjusting to a new country but I had to do it alone. I had no contacts, no money and knew nothing about the legal system here. Dawn Bennett was recommended to me by a colleague of hers and from the moment I met her, I felt I had finally found a safe place. Read MoreShe helped me navigate the divorce process with patience, confidence, honesty and a competitive spirit that brought me to where I am right now... "A calm & determined force, she put her soul into my case
    Dawn helped make me become stronger woman, she helped me become more confident and because of Dawn, I can take my kids to school every day, I have a home to live in, I can take care of my own life, and even have time to volunteer to help others.

  • I'd been separated for a while before I found Dawn Bennett. It was a huge step to hire a lawyer but I felt really comfortable with her. She understood I wanted a safe environment for my kids and my (now ex) husband. Read MoreI know I would have had pressure from other lawyers to "get the most for myself!" but that was not the case with Dawn. She allowed me take a more peaceful and gentle approach to the divorce. She understood when there were certain things I didn't want to do but helped me to understand what HAD to be done under the law.
    She is very professional and knows her stuff!!! What Dawn does is important to the community and I support her 100%.

  • I was in the process of a messy divorce with a lawyer I just couldn't connect with. The situation I was in was abusive and getting worse. Dawn knows the law and what needs to be done. She explained step by step what had to happen and why each step had to be taken. Read MoreYou can't skip steps...as much as I may have wanted to at times. In fact, to save fees, she backed off for 8 months at one point knowing that nothing was going to happen anyway...many lawyers would have capitalized on the "messiness of the divorce" to make more money!
    I regard Dawn as a friend and an excellent lawyer, she understands the law, she is organized and exemplifies professionalism!

  • Dawn is a gifted, compassionate and generous person. She made it her goal to keep my cost down as much as possible. It's good knowing you're with someone talking the same language, who is not motivated by personal gain. I would recommend her without any hesitation... in fact, I told a friend of mine about her when he was facing his own divorce and he was every bit as satisfied with her services and the outcome.Lawyer Mississauga - Right Quote

What is a Consultation?

A consultation allows potential or existing clients the opportunity to discuss their legal matter with a lawyer. A consultation may cover:
  • The nature of the problem, legally speaking.
  • The legal options that may be available to you.
  • The steps that may be taken, or additional information needed for the protection of interests or evidence in your case.
  • Options for non-legal solutions, if they exist. 
  • A recommended approach for a solution, and cost factors associated with the action.
  • Determination of whether legal representation is required for your legal matter or whether the desired outcome can be achieved without a lawyer.

The cost of consultation

Each lawyer has an hourly rate for initial consultations. We are happy to provide rates upon request. Consultation fees are payable at the time of the initial appointment with your lawyer.

Fees may be paid with Cash, Visa, Mastercard, or Interact/Debit. Personal cheques are not accepted for initial consultations.

What to bring to a consultation:

Consultations are more efficient when you come prepared. Before your consultation, we suggest that you draw up a list of all the questions you would like to discuss with your lawyer. Bring this list, along with documents pertaining to your legal matter. Your lawyer will be able to provide detailed information and offer the most relevant advice in a reasonable period of time.

Supporting Documentation for your consultation:

The list below is a sample of supporting documentation that may be relevant during your initial consultation:
  • SIN Card and Drivers’ License
  • Typed timeline of the marriage, including wedding date, names and birth dates of all children, major purchases, and details of problems leading to the decision to dissolve the marriage. 
  • Information showing current income of each party for use in addressing spousal or child support.
  • Any pertinent documentation pertaining to a current case if you are engaged in an active suit, an enforcement proceeding, or modification. This includes documents or court papers you have been served on behalf of a spouse, and all other correspondence in your case.
  • Copy of your pre-nuptial agreement, or any other signed agreements you have with your spouse.
  • A statement of finances that shows your current debts and assets, making note of any property or assets that belonged, in whole or in part, to you before your marriage. Also note assets or property bequeathed to you as an inheritance or gift from someone other than your spouse.
Providing your lawyer with a timeline of your marriage, financial assets and debts, and any other pertinent documentation will allow for better insight into the issues you are facing. This information assists the legal process, to ensures you receive the best answers to your questions.

Our level of service is best facilitated by the provision of the necessary information during your initial consultation. At Bennett Law Chambers, we are committed to helping our clients protect their interests, and can see you through your legal matter.
