Mr. Bender has been my attorney since 2011- he has always been available anytime I have needed to talk to him or get a question answered. Pete has true experience and will not stop fighting for you & your best interest -he is very down to earth, easy to talk to.
Definitely someone I want on my side.

Finding myself in a very scarey situatioin where my livelihood was on the line, Mr. Bender stepped up to the plate. He took my situation head-on and believed in me right from the very beginning. I was facing a 30 - life sentence because of the charge.
He worked on my case for 8 months and didn't rest for one minute. Even after the case was continued 3 times, he forged on.
I was impressed by his ability to remain focused contently during my trial, which lasted 3 full days. His aggressiveness in the courtroom is what really stands out most. Mr. Bender fought hard to keep unnessecarry comments out of the trial.
Mr. Bender also worked openly with my family while I was "locked up", as I didn't have any other means to work on my defense.
It is with great pleasure that I recommend Mr. Bender to you. He was very professional and I would trust him with my life again!

I hired him because I was wrongly accused in a serious criminal case. He anticipated the all the other side's moves and got me a great result. If he can't get you what you need, you need a doctor or a priest.
