Skellenger Bender, P.S. is pleased to announce that six of our attorneys were selected for inclusion in the 2019 Washington Super Lawyers and Rising Stars list. Charles Newton, Elizabeth Hershman-Greven, Raegen Rasnic, Rita Bender, and Peter Offenbecher were selected as Super Lawyers and Caleb Oken-Berg was named a Rising Star. Each year, Super Lawyers are selected through an unbiased, multiphase process that includes peer nomination, evaluations, and independent research. No more than 5% of Washington attorneys are selected as Super Lawyers, and no more than 2.5% receive the honor of being named a Rising Star. Skellenger Bender is delighted to have six of our attorneys attain such a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

Skellenger Bender is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Bianchi has joined as Of Counsel in our Family Law Practice Group, and Sarah Jael Dion has joined the firm as Of Counsel practicing in Estate Planning and Probate. These exciting additions further Skellenger Bender’s 90-year legacy of providing the highest caliber of service to our clients, and to advancing our proud tradition of social justice.

Community Spotlight

Bill and Rita Bender presented at the Recognition, Reparation, and Reconciliation Conference held December 5-9, 2018 at Stellenbosch University in South Africa. This annual conference aims to deepen the understanding of the transgenerational repercussions of traumatic pasts in a range of cultural contexts, to explore how different disciplines represent this transgenerational phenomenon, and to contribute to new knowledge production in this area of research.

Mr. and Mrs. Bender conducted a panel presentation titled “Reckoning with the Legacies of White Supremacy: The Role of Eugenics, Violence, and Incarceration in Mississippi Public Schools.” This presentation was interrelated with their pro bono work in the landmark federal lawsuit filed in Mississippi on May 23, 2017 by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
