“The time is always right to do what’s right.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Associate Attorney Erik D. Cansler is a native of Kansas. He moved to Colorado more than 20 years ago, but the State Motto of Kansas has always stayed with him: “To the stars, through difficulties.”

Mr. Cansler has extensive background as a civil defense attorney giving him a unique perspective on how insurance companies respond to the personal injury claims of our car accident clients. Having experienced the litigation process from both the at-fault party’s and victim’s points of view, he realized that our clients need an experienced, competent and determined advocate willing to protect their rights and interests. His desire to work with a dedicated and motivated team of professional personal injury attorneys led to his joining the Bendinelli Law Firm.

Mr. Cansler graduated with honors from Colorado State University in 1997, and from the University of Colorado School of Law in 2004.
