Elizabeth L. Bennett: My practice is focused exclusively on assisting people considering divorce and other matrimonial matters. I offer clients the option of negotiated divorce, mediation, the collaborative divorce process, or traditional courtroom litigation. On this website, you will find information on each of these dispute resolution options and other valuable information for the decisions you may need to make.
I am thrilled to have recently joined the long standing and respected family law department at Astor, Weiss, Kaplan & Mandel, LLP. At Astor, Weiss, Kaplan & Mandel, I have retained my presence on the Main Line as the firm has meeting space in both Wayne and Bala Cynwyd as well as a main office in the Bellevue on Broad Street in Philadelphia. At Astor, Weiss, Kaplan & Mandel, I work with experienced family law attorneys representing clients in Bucks County, Chester County, Delaware County, Montgomery County and Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.
I have had thirty years experience as a divorce lawyer, having been a partner in a big firm, Dilworth LLP, owner/founder of Bennett & Associates, and now special counsel at Astor, Weiss, Kaplan & Mandel, LLP. Having been a single parent of two daughters, I understand the burdens of parenting of the children on the primary caretaker, husband or wife. As a practicing lawyer, I understand the pressure of a career and work life balance issues. After my professional career and children, my other passion is law reform and policy issues and has concentrated on family court reform, easy and fair access to medical coverage and the discovery of hidden offshore or otherwise undisclosed assets.
I believe that your children come first and I have developed strategies and methods for handling individual cases to keep the children out of the conflict.
If you have decided to divorce and desire a process that will generate an agreement that is in the best interest of you and your children, contact me. I will schedule an appointment for us to meet.
