Preventing Child Abuse

Michael Ian Bender advocates tirelessly for the rights and wellbeing of children. Driven by the belief, “There is no excuse for child abuse,” Bender works with the Courts to ensure that the child’s best interests are at the forefront through a divorce or paternity dispute.

In Cook County, Illinois, Bender protects children by serving as a child’s representative, guardian ad litem (GAL), or an attorney for the child(ren). These critical roles ensure that a child is protected through a divorce or paternity dispute.
