Desmonde X. Bennett


Attorney Desmonde X. Bennett joined Wisconsin Judicare in August 2018 as a legal advocate. As of April 2019 she has transitioned to her position as a Civil Unit Staff Attorney after passing the Wisconsin State Bar. She works remotely out of Sawyer County, and her focus areas include public benefits and elder rights. She also provides legal back up to the Tribal Elder Benefits Specialists. Although Attorney Bennett is a Civil Unit attorney she plays an important role in both our Indian Law and Civil units, and her duties often overlap into both.
