A committed, analytical divorce lawyer, Robert Bennett is dedicated to producing results for his clients. He uses a tactical eye to find the best angle to approach each case. With his strong litigation skills, he is a valuable member of the Goldberg Jones team in Seattle.
Prior to shifting his focus to family law, Robert worked in international commercial arbitration, a trade that took him overseas. Living abroad for 18 years, where he practiced for seven, Robert gained a unique perspective and honed his ability to communicate effectively with clients from varied backgrounds. It also provided the opportunity to become fluent in both German and Swedish.
Managing attorney Ken Alan says, “Robert is a fantastic communicator and excellent strategist. He has the ability to quickly grasp a client’s needs and devise the best plan of action to realize their goals.”
A former member of the United States Army, and decorated veteran of the Gulf War, Robert was born and raised in Washington. He attended Washington State University as an undergrad and received his Juris Doctor from Seattle University. He subsequently earned his Master of Laws from Stockholm University in Sweden.
When not fighting for the rights of his clients, Robert can be found spending time with friends and family; gardening, skiing, or otherwise enjoying outdoor life in the Pacific Northwest; or watching the Seahawks and Cougars. He’s an important piece of the Goldberg Jones family and an asset to the husbands and fathers of Seattle and the surrounding areas.
Robert Bennett recently represented me in a hearing. He was incredible, without him I would have been lost. Don’t hesitate to call him the second you have family law issues. It is worth the cost to know you have someone like Robert watching out for you.

Robert Bennett was recommended to me by a friend who had tried several divorce lawyers before finding Robert and I am so happy that Robert handled my divorce from my husband. Thanks to his amazing experience, expertise, intelligence, patience and impressive ability to see through all the nonsense from the opposing side, he got me through the two most difficult years of my life with a successful end result.
He is just the type of sharp, extremely smart divorce lawyer you want by your side. In addition, he is kind, helpful, and a great listener who goes above and beyond to support his clients. I highly recommend that you ask for Robert Bennett to handle your divorce! Thank you Robert, for everything!
Robert Bennett handled my case. He had a detailed understanding of family law and was always available to clearly communicate its implications on my case.
My case had an additional complexity in international family law as it involved a case over two different countries. His understanding of family law both in the US and my home country, as well as the jurisdiction of the courts, was extremely helpful. He was always available for any questions and requests. A very positive experience. Thank you.
Robert Bennett is by far one of the finest attorneys I have ever encountered. As an attorney myself, I am not an easy client. I am critical and likely have an inflated sense of my own abilities. Robert saved me from me as well as my ex. His counsel was measured, compassionate, spot on of his knowledge of the law, and always entirely professional.
When I veered towards the upsetting drama from my divorce, Robert steered me firmly away from anything that would muddy the waters in his presentation to the Court. As a result, his case was clean, concise and provided the judge with an easy road map to follow straight to a favorable decision.
If not for Robert, I truly don’t know how I would have made it through one of the most difficult times of my life. I cannot sing his praises loudly enough. Any client who is fortunate enough to retain him will be incredibly well served. There simply isn’t any better than Robert Bennett. He’s the tops.
Robert jumped right into a complicated situation with unusual circumstances and quickly ramped up over two years of activity to finalize my divorce. He provided wise, conscientious, compassionate counsel during the tough process of enforcing the divorce decree.
I appreciated his ability to keep a potentially volatile situation from becoming perilous for all parties involved. It was a pleasure to work with Robert although I must say I hope to not need his dissolution services again. I recommend him for a cost-effective, smooth conclusion to your divorce.
Rob Bennett worked very hard on my case, his knowledge, experience, and expertise ultimately led to me gaining custody of my son, getting him out of an unhealthy environment and I believe saving his life. Rob Bennett is one heck of an advocate to have on your side.
Robert Bennett is an excellent attorney! He cares about the case while getting the best results for his client! Thanks Robert!
