CHICAGO – October 31, 2018 – Experienced attorneys, Molly E. Caesar and former Judge Michael Ian Bender, have announced the opening of Caesar & Bender, LLP, a law firm focused on the practice of family law.
The attorneys at Caesar & Bender, LLP, with its primary office located at 150 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 2800 in Chicago, bring decades of knowledge to divorce, child custody and domestic violence cases. The new law firm’s practice areas include pre-nuptial agreements, child custody cases, child support disputes, complex financial divorce matters, paternity representation (including high-profile individuals), Guardian ad litem and child representative representation, embryo disputes, post decree modification and enforcement, parenting time and visitation, return of children to their home state, and orders of protection.
“Caesar & Bender is a law firm dedicated to providing family law counsel and representation with integrity and respect for our clients,” said co-founding partner, Molly E. Caesar. “The positive reputations that both Michael and I have built by delivering creative and efficient resolutions for clients provided a solid foundation for us to come together,” she added.
Caesar, a top-rated family law attorney, was a partner at a major family law firm prior to launching the new firm with Bender. She was the 2016-2017 President (and 2015-2016 First Vice President) of the North Suburban Bar Association (NSBA). With significant experience handling both custody cases and financial litigation, Caesar shares her knowledge as an adjunct professor at DePaul University College of Law and as a member of the Family Law Advisory Board at DePaul University College of Law.
“I’m optimistic that by expanding my private practice and establishing a partnership with Molly, our work can have a greater impact on children and families struggling with divorce,” shared former Judge Michael Ian Bender. Bender moved to private practice four years ago after retiring as a Circuit Court of Cook County judge in the Domestic Relations Division.
“Protecting children and ending child abuse is something I’m very passionate about. It is a duty that should not be done alone,” he explained. “Creating a partnership with Molly, an attorney who quickly rose to the top of her field, earning a strong reputation for her work with families, creates an opportunity for our firm to become one of the top family law firms in the country,” Bender added.
Caesar & Bender, LLP serves clients nationally from its office in Chicago. For more information on the new family law firm, or to make an appointment, visit CaesarBenderLaw.com or call (312) 236-1500.
