Meet Bennett Cunningham

Remember me from TV?

I was an Investigative Reporter on CBS 11 News for more than 10 years. I am a nationally recognized, award-winning television journalist who stood up to major banks and corporations, exposing lies and deceit to protect the people of North Texas. After 20 years in journalism, I made the decision to spend less time “reporting” and more time “doing something” to help people in our community.

So, after being out of law school for 15 years, I took the Texas Bar Exam and passed on my first try! It wasn’t easy, but I did it. The universe was telling me something, but was I listening?

A few years ago, I opened up the doors of my new legal practice – the Law Office of Bennett Cunningham, P.C. – focusing on consumer bankruptcy law (Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy). My track record as a television investigative reporter shows my desire for discovering the truth, my reputation for honesty, and my integrity. Here is a sample of what my peers, nationally and in Texas, think of my work.
