After living in Washington, D.C. for a few years, Bridgette relocated to Groveland in 2005 to be with her ill mother, and after fighting her husband's deportation case for eight years, Bridgette decided to attend law school full time in the summer of 2008, with the goal of helping others who were facing deportation.
Today, the Bennett Law Center has eight full time employees: two attorneys, three paralegals, and three administrative staff members. In the past five years, the Bennett Law Center has served hundreds of clients and currently has over 300 pending cases. She was even able to purchase the building she was renting.
In the next five to ten years, Bridgette hopes to have a mid-size immigration firm with possibly three to five additional attorneys. She is also considering branching into other areas of immigration law because it is her passion and calling. Bridgette's advice to young professionals is "to relentlessly pursue your dreams, have faith, serve others, work with excellence, make money and have fun along the way!"
