Insurance Bad Faith Lawyer, Oklahoma
I am an Oklahoma Insurance Bad Faith Lawyer. I was born and raised in Oklahoma. I was raised in El Reno, Oklahoma. My family roots are in Western OK (Washita County) where my family has farmed and ranched since before statehood. As a child and teenager I worked on farms and ranches, driving tractors, working ground, harvesting wheat, building fence and working cattle.
My passion has always been fishing and hunting, which I continue to do today with my 3 children. I love fishing in bass tournaments with my father and sons. I have fished nearly every lake in the State of OK. During the past 14 years, when not fishing or hunting, I coached my boys in football, baseball and basketball.
I attended El Reno High School (1983), received my Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science at SWOSU (Weatherford, OK) (1987), and obtained my Juris Doctorate Degree at the University of Oklahoma (1990). I was employed as a law student clerk at the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals during law school and opened my own law firm after passing the Bar Exam (1990).
In 1990, I opened The Bennett Law Firm and began raising a family. I immediately began representing Oklahoma citizens in all matters involving insurance disputes, including injury, insurance and consumer claims. I pride myself in believing that no corporation is too big to challenge when I am representing an individual who has been wronged, cheated or injured in any way by big business. My largest recovery on behalf of an injured family was $8,500,000.00. However, I believe no dollar amount is too small when a corporation or insurance company is attempting to cheat an Oklahoma citizen out of what they deserve.
My law firm was instrumental in challenging the billion-dollar automobile industry involving Extended Warranty contracts. We fought to change OK law in this area so that Oklahoma consumers could stand on equal footing with this industry and hold these companies accountable for their dishonest actions. In 2011, after many years, we were able to assist in convincing the Oklahoma Supreme Court that extended warranties are in fact insurance contracts and Oklahoma consumers may seek bad faith and punitive damages when they are cheated on their extended warranty claims.
Currently, my office consists of 8 lawyers practicing in nearly every legal field, including Personal Injury, Products Liability, Medical Malpractice, Insurance Disputes, Criminal Defense, Divorce & Child Custody, Bankruptcy, Estate Planning & Probate, Worker’s Compensation, Oil & Gas Law, Aviation Law and most other legal specialties.
