    Attorney Profile

    The founder of his eponymous law firm, Michael S. Bender focuses his practice primarily on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Based in Astoria, Queens, he represents clients throughout the greater New York City metropolitan area. Mr. Bender attended Boston University as an undergraduate, where he majored in political science and government and received a Bachelor of Arts in 1976. He then went on to pursue his legal education at Emory University School of Law in Atlanta and obtained his Juris Doctor in 1979.

    Mr. Bender’s personal injury clients are people who have been harmed as a result of the negligence of other parties. His cases have encompassed construction site accidents, premises liability, medical malpractice, defective products and motor vehicle crashes, among others, and during his career, he has been able to recover millions of dollars in compensation for his clients through negotiated settlements as well as jury awards. Some of his representative successes have included a $1.825 million settlement for a family who were injured in a car accident caused by a defective tire and a $3.75 million wrongful death settlement on behalf of the surviving family members of a woman who was killed when a truck crossed the median and struck her vehicle head-on.

    Prior to forming his own firm, Mr. Bender spent several years as an attorney at a highly regarded New York City plaintiff’s personal injury law firm that concentrated on medical malpractice litigation, and he remains of counsel to it. This experience and ongoing relationship allow him to take on even the most challenging and complex cases for his clients. Mr. Bender is admitted to practice in New York and Georgia and before the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.
