Bennett, Sr. is distinguished among his peers for the professionalism and ethics he has exhibited over the last 35+ years in the practice of law, and these virtues have been passed down to his sons, Michael S. Bennett, Jr. and Jim T. Bennett.
Rooted in the community for three generations
Bennett Law Firm has served the Valdosta and South Georgia communities for six decades.
Jim T. Bennett, Jr. (1920-2006) founded the Firm in 1960. Mr. Bennett had a reputation for aggressively representing his clients’ interests and ensuring that their rights were protected. Mr. Bennett devoted a lifetime of service to his country and to his community. He was a veteran of World War II and the Korean War and retired as a Colonel in the United States Air Force Reserve in 1975. Mr. Bennett also served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1966-1975. When Mr. Bennett retired from a very successful legal career in 1995, he left quite a legacy. Mr. Bennett’s son, Mike S. Bennett, Sr., joined the Firm in 1977. Mike’s son, Michael S. Bennett, Jr., joined the Firm in 1993. Mike’s other son, Jim T. Bennett, joined in 1998. Together, Mike and his sons are the managing partners of the Firm. Bennett Law Firm has the unique distinction of being the only three-generation law firm in the history of the State of Georgia to successfully present and argue a case before the Georgia Supreme Court. We have been presented with a certificate by the Georgia Supreme Court acknowledging this achievement.
