Testimonials

 

George Bodenger has represented me for over 20 years, from his time at large law firms through his current small/solo practice platform. During this timeframe, George’s work has resulted in significant financial returns to me and my medical practice. In addition, George is always available whenever I need him. I have called him on many evenings and weekends and he gets back to me immediately, without fail. He is extremely responsive and very knowledgeable in relevant areas of healthcare and commercial law. I strongly endorse George’s legal skills and expertise. George also represents my daughter, who is a newly-minted physician.

George was my colleague of many years at Duane Morris., LLP, during his tenure with the firm as special counsel and as a young partner. His thorough knowledge and deep experience in the healthcare industry was extremely valuable to our firm, and I brought him into cases with our key clients on a regular basis.
 
Since George opened his own law firm in 2016, I have referred a number of clients to him when faced with firm conflicts or cases better suited to a small firm. George has consistently performed well as lead counsel in these matters and I am confident that when I send a client to George, he will do fine legal work on their behalf.

George was my partner at an AmLaw 200 law firm for a number of years, and he was a highly valued colleague. His healthcare knowledge and expertise are extensive, enabling him to effectively represent a wide variety of health care clients, ranging from health systems to medical practices. What makes George especially effective is that he had a healthcare management consulting background before practicing law and he exemplifies understanding “how clients think”, including a proactive approach to client issues and a very high degree of responsiveness. I chaired the law firm’s business practice during a portion of George’s tenure at the firm, during which time George was appointed to serve as Chair of the firm’s health law practice. George was frequently sought out by other partners for assistance, and the feedback was consistently positive from colleagues and clients alike.

I have worked with George as a fellow partner at Duane Morris and as a client when I was in-house counsel at Jefferson Health System. In addition, during my tenure as Co-Chair of the Health Law Department at Cozen & O’Connor, I have referred a number of existing and prospective clients to George when a conflict of interest arose or when the economics of the case did not fit with a large law firm profile. George has proven to be a solid performer in each matter I and my colleagues at Cozen have sent to him. He is competent and responsiveness and I highly recommend him as a healthcare lawyer.

Co-Chair Health Law Department, Cozen & O’Connor, P.C.
 


I have known George Bodenger for fifteen years, and we were colleagues at one of Philadelphia’s largest law firms where George served as the Chair of the Health Law Department. I consider George to be one of the premier health care attorneys in the Mid-Atlantic region. What distinguishes him is his responsiveness, dedication, and deep subject matter expertise stemming from his varied experience representing an impressive array of health care providers and businesses. George’s work experience prior to and during law school in the healthcare consulting practice of Ernst & Young gives him a practical edge in skills over most other health care attorneys who do not fully understand their clients’ business challenges. I strongly recommend George Bodenger.

Richard J. King
Shareholder and Co-Chair, Health Care Department, Stevens & Lee

 


George has been an integral player in navigating our business through a myriad of challenges over the last few years, both routine and otherwise. His healthcare expertise has been invaluable as he facilitated many contracts, shareholder agreements, and provided in-depth review of complex legal matters. He is timely in his responses and his work product is comprehensive. I highly recommend George for organizations looking to build a personal relationship with Counsel.

Executive Director, The Ambulatory Surgery Center at St. Mary LLC

 


George represented me in an important matter involving my employment. Throughout the process, George demonstrated a keen knowledge of the relevant areas of law. He was able to determine that additional counsel was needed for our case and found another excellent lawyer to round out the legal team, giving me the best chance to be successful. In addition, I found him to be extremely responsive and resourceful. He always had time for my case, my questions, and was prompt in his replies. He was also able to work effectively with opposing counsel. Going into the case, there was a very low likelihood of a successful outcome for me, but George was able to achieve victory. I cannot imagine someone representing me better than George Bodenger. If someone found themselves in the same circumstances as I did, I would not hesitate to recommend bring their case to Bodenger Law.

George was patient, calm, and a voice of reason during negotiations in a difficult situation. He was my advocate and represented me in a fair and robust manner. He knows the health care system extremely well and knows how to be diplomatic when necessary and aggressive when necessary. He is someone you want to be in your corner. I highly recommend him.

Laura Oppenheim, M.D.


I have known and used Mr. George Bodenger for legal issues relating to my medical practice for over 16 years. I found Mr. Bodenger to be available and always responsive to the issue at hand. Mr. Bodenger has a way of making me feel like I am his only client which is very reassuring. There is never an issue too large or too small for him to handle. With great enthusiasm I recommend Mr. George Bodenger for medical related legal matters.

Don A Koenigsberg D.O.


We cannot thank George Bodenger enough for the results of the case he handled for us, which saved our psychiatric practice in excess of $200,000. The situation was extremely difficult, but his astute advocacy resulted in a very reasonable settlement for our practice which, frankly, saved us from financial ruin. We would highly and unquestionably recommend Law Offices of George W. Bodenger, LLC to any organization in need of effective legal representation in healthcare commercial law matters.
