Welcome to Ring Bender LLP

From our offices in Pennsylvania, California, and Oregon, we practice as one law firm, holding closely to core values that start with a deep commitment to our clients and to the quality of our work on their behalf. Our practice includes an emphasis on teamwork among our lawyers and with other professionals, and a belief in the application of common sense, uncommon resolve and deep and wide-ranging experience to handle our clients’ legal service needs.

Our lawyers are recognized nationally for the depth of their expertise. The diversity of our lawyers strengthens both our ability to evaluate issues confronting our clients and our advocacy on their behalf in multiple settings across the United States. And because every client is a client of the law firm, not of any specific lawyer, every client has the ability to call on any of our lawyers as needed.

Our litigators represent our clients in cases throughout the United States. We handle arbitrations, agency proceedings, and matters before the federal and state courts at both the trial and appellate levels.

In our 150-plus years of collective experience, we’ve honed our legal service skills in the following practice areas:

Ring Bender attorneys Patrick (“Kit”) Bobko, Norman (“Norm”) Dupont and Jay Tufano recently won an appeal reversing an adverse judgment against a municipal firm client, Rubidoux Community Services District (Rubidoux).

On January 9, 2024, the United States Supreme Court will consider the extent to which a municipal entity can impose legislative development-related fees in George Sheetz v. County of El Dorado, California, No. 22-1074 (“Sheetz”).

We are proud to have obtained this settlement on behalf of Orange County. As a law firm focusing in part on waterway and other environmental clean-up and related cost recovery actions, our firm brings considerable experience to clients in need of representation for these and other environmental matters.
