Attorney Mark F. Bennett was born in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania in 1964. Upon graduating from Duquesne University in 1986 with his bachelor’s degree in political science and English, he went on to earn his Juris Doctor from Duquesne University School of Law. Due to his excellence in his studies, Attorney Bennett was also a member of the Duquesne University Law Review. Mr. Bennett says becoming an attorney was something he always wanted to do; there were no other professions he ever had in mind.
While still an undergraduate student, Mr. Bennett worked in the Parental Counsel Division of the Washington County Juvenile Courts, where he gained valuable knowledge and worked closely with families. Prior to joining Berger and Green, Mr. Bennett practiced general civil litigation for a firm where he acquired extensive courtroom experience that included jury trials, nonjury trials, and arbitration hearings.
Attorney Bennett joined Berger and Green, P.C. in 1996. He represents injured accident victims in personal injury claims including: multi-vehicle accidents, dog bites, and defective products. Mr. Bennett feels he is truly helping people who, due to unfortunate circumstances, find themselves in need of an attorney. He is sensitive to their situations and fights hard to recover the financial compensation the law permits.
Attorney Bennett suggests that all individuals consult a knowledgeable attorney if they are injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence. Mr. Bennett says victims have to think about the future of their injures and quality of life. Insurance companies are quick to have accident victims sign paperwork that can be hard to understand. Before signing anything from the insurance company, Attorney Bennett recommends contacting an experienced personal injury attorney.
Mr. Bennett is licensed to practice in all Pennsylvania State Courts and in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania. He is a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice (PAJ), the Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA) and the Allegheny County Bar Association (ACBA), where he served on the Public Service Committee.
