Marshall Bender

Marshall is an attorney with the firm of Cohen & Grigsby, P.C., located at Mercato in Naples, Florida.  The primary focus of Marshall’s practice is civil litigation, where Marshall assists clients in a broad range of litigation including construction, probate and contract disputes.  Marshall was selected to the Florida Super Lawyers Rising Stars list in business litigation for 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Marshall joined the Board of Directors of the United Way of Collier County in 2018, but his partnership with United Way began well before then. He regularly assisted United Way as a member of multiple agency allocation panels, gaining a broad appreciation for the multiple services provided by United Way agencies to members of Collier County’s ALICE population.  He also plays a key role in vetting our partner agencies, making sure every service or program that we fund is extracting the maximum value from every donor dollar. Marshall has been an active supporter of Legal Aid of Collier County since he arrived in Southwest Florida in 2009 and was proud to be named by Legal Aid as the Pro Bono Attorney of the Month for January 2018. He has a bachelor's from Johnson University and his Juris Doctorate from University of Florida.

Marshall has been married to his wonderful wife, Melissa, for over 18 years.  They have two children, Charlotte and Daniel, and a fun-loving labradoodle.  In his spare time, Marshall enjoys spending time with his family, volunteering his time at his church and other local charities, and cheering on the Florida Gators.
