Ms. Bender represented me in a very contentious custody matter. When I first met with her I was scared and considering giving in to my ex, but she kept me and my children’s best interest at heart and stopped me from making a costly mistake. Her vast knowledge of family law is amazing and she aggressively represented me through trial. Margaret Bender is a competent, respected attorney who excels under pressure - I would recommend her to anyone!

I endorse this lawyer's work. She is an excellent trial attorney. She is always on time with deadlines, produces a trial brief that portrays the client's story, and is skilled on cross and direct examination. Margaret is a sensitive and caring person combined with the agressiveness and knowledge to get the best results. Margaret uses strategy to best advocate for a client which rises to the level of excellence. I hired her to help me with a trial, and we won everything that our client wanted. I have also witnessed her skill in negotiating settlements. Now that I have retired, I have recommended her to several potential clients.
