Georgia Bender is an associate in the Insurance Recovery, Litigation & Counseling practice group. She works with policyholders to maximize their insurance coverage for losses under a variety of insurance policies, including general liability, property, employment practices, and directors and officers policies. Her experience includes guiding companies through the complex process of securing coverage for large, long-tail liabilities under insurance policies spanning decades and involving many insurers. She engages in all aspects of litigation, from pre-litigation counseling through appeal, and has successfully assisted clients in resolving their disputes prior to litigation and through alternative dispute resolution and settlement.
Georgia remains committed to public service and extends her practice to pro bono work in cases involving contract disputes. She has also worked on civil cases involving allegations of animal cruelty and neglect on behalf of an SPCA and she has counseled pro se victims to secure restraining orders in domestic disputes. In her spare time, Georgia served as a writing instructor for NJ LEEP, a college access and success program serving first-generation and socioeconomically disadvantaged students living in the greater Newark area.
