What We Do

TRIAL ATTORNEYS

We are first and foremost trial attorneys.  Over the last 37 years, we have tried over 45 cases, many of them before juries.  We believe that the work of preparing for trial starts when we first take your case.  Our staff works together to build a trial-ready case that allows us to achieve the most favorable result for our clients at the earliest possible stage of litigation.  By doing the work to prepare for trial and building our case from the very start, we ensure that we are ready to meet any challenge during litigation.

Unlike with larger firms, Berman Litigation Group guarantees the personal attention of an experienced trial attorney from the outset of your case.  Your case will not be assigned to a junior partner or senior associate.

While we have substantial trial experience, we know that not every case should or can go to trial.  We are experienced in achieving results through pre-trial motions and settlements.

We are routinely hired by attorneys who previously represented the other side of settled matters to represent their current clients when they have a conflict, to testify as expert witnesses on issues that arise during litigation and to act as litigation consultants or neutral arbitrators.

EXCELLENCE WITH VALUE

At Berman Litigation Group, value begins with excellent legal work.  We provide outstanding legal work at a fraction of the cost of other firms. As a small firm with lower overhead and by handling everything from discovery to trial in-house, we can charge lower hourly rates. Our experience working at the some of the largest law firms allows us to provide large-firm experience and quality with small-firm value.

Our commitment to the providing cost-effective legal services means we routinely cap the amount of legal fees for a dispute and formulate alternatives to the billable hour based fee approach.  We are willing to craft a financial plan that puts our own “skin in the game,” so we share the financial risk of litigation.
