Welcome to Berk Law
Integrity, compassion and skill; we bring these core values to each of our matters. We pride ourselves in representing clients that need our assistance. Situations where we hope to right a wrong. We will only accept an engagement if we are completely convinced our client’s position has merit. When we’ve made that determination, we proceed zealously. To best serve our clients, we team up with other firms to bring the talent and resources necessary to prevail.
Civility and Professionalism; fighting amongst lawyers does not advance the cause of the client nor impress the courts. Civility does not signal weakness. Rather it is a sign of confidence in your position and your experience. We fight with ardor and when necessary, relentlessly. But at the end of the day we respect our adversaries and proceed with professionalism.
Nature of our Practice
We are problem solvers. We hope through negotiation, informed by respect and the understanding of our adversary’s position, we can avoid litigation and resolve significant business disputes and consumer claims efficiently and without rancor. Nevertheless, if we have to litigate we have the resources and experience to succeed. We specialize in consumer protection, complex business litigation, securities arbitrations, corporate internal investigations and white collar criminal defense. Our clients range from individual defrauded investors, classes of consumers, small and midsize businesses to Fortune 500 corporations. We have experience prosecuting and trying cases throughout the United States in both state and federal court.
