Levi Bendele is a graduate of the University of Colorado and the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law. However, the best claim-handling education he received was when he moved to Washington and worked as a State Farm claim representative in the late 90s. Since that time he has defended a variety of cases, including automobile liability and UM/UIM, premise liability, construction injury and defect, premises liability, HOA litigation, professional liability, and insurance matters involving EUOs, PIP, coverage, bad faith and IFCA claims. Secondarily, he has worked on a handful of appeals before Division One of the Washington Court of Appeals and two matters before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
Mr. Bendele is a former board member of the Washington Defense Trial Lawyers Association (WDTL) and currently chairs the Automobile and Trucking Claims Defense Section.
