Areas of practice

"Brenton Legal is that law firm – bar none."

When it comes to family, everyone would agree you do not just walk into any law office. You do your research. You talk to people. You make sure you are going to receive representation that you can wholeheartedly trust, at a reasonable value, and that will place you or your family member in a better position. Brenton Legal is that law firm – bar none. I trust this firm to help guide my family and that should tell you everything you need to know if you read reviews.

"We would give more than 5 stars if we could!!!"

Travis and the team at Brenton Legal was absolutely amazing. They met and exceeded our expectations and helped navigate us through unfamiliar territory. Any time we had a question or concern, either Travis or Jackie responded in a very timely manner. We would give more than 5 stars if we could!!! Thank you so much!

"I highly recommend Brenton Legal"

I found my lawyer Chris to be knowledgeable, straightforward, and honest. His assistant Jackie is incredibly kind and helpful. I had to do basically nothing, they kept me updated and I occasionally e-signed something. I highly recommend Brenton Legal.

"He is honest, persistent and caring."

I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Fennell. He is honest, persistent and caring. From the beginning, he let me know the outcome could be both good or bad. He always kept me in the loop and made sure I understood everything that was going on. Without Mr. Fennell, this case would not have worked out in my favor. I am grateful for all his help and highly recommend him to anyone!
