I have had the pleasure of knowing Mike for many years. When I was injured in a motor vehicle accident Mike was there for me. Other attorneys I spoke with suggested that the case would be difficult and the settlement meager. Mike was able to obtain a $35,000 settlement without us even having to appear in court. Clearly, his reputation preceded him and the other side folded before the trial was even scheduled. Trust Mike and his firm to get you the monetary award you deserve. They are the best attorneys out there.
Words can not express how I feel about Mr. Michael Bersani. He is one of the most authentic & honest attorneys that you will find. I had gone through a very difficult period (audit with BCBS) that was triggered by a former associate. I knew this former employee had done this to harm me personally and my company. He had also breeched a confidentiality & integrity agreement, but was under protection of the "whistle blower" umbrella. After successfully defending my stance with the blues, my next job was to find a lawyer that had the knowledge to hold my former associate accountable for his malicious intent. It took me 18 months of interviewing lawyers & pitching my idea till I found the right man for this job. Michael Bersani was like a surgeon. He developed a detailed game plan that first had to prove to the US attorney's office that this former associate didn't have the right to be protected by this umbrella. Next Michael helped me become the first employer in US history to sue a "whistle blower" & WIN! When other lawyers laughed at me & told me to let sleeping dogs lie. Mr. Bersani saw the pain that this ordeal had caused my family, & had the fortitude to help me right this wrong. He is one of the top lawyers in central New York & has the accolades to show for this, but in my book he's the top lawyer in the country. I am honored to have had the opportunity to work with Mr. Bersani & to have had him on my team!
Mike handled a case for me and my son and was always available there for me when I had questions. He was always professional and caring. I have to tell you, I went though alot of attorneys in the Syracuse that really did a terrible job and told me that I could never win my case and I should just forget about it and call it a day. Mike fought for me and cleaned up the messes from the other attorney's that I fired in the past. He always gave me hope when I thought it was hopeless and fought for me all the way. Mike went to several appeals courts to fight for me until the end when we won the case. I have never seen an attorney fight for a client as he did for me. I would highly recommend Mike and his team of lawyers.
Mike took a drawn out, document ridden legal process and made me feel at ease. I never once questioned Mike's dedication to my case, even though I was one of his smaller clients. I would highly recommend this attorney based on integrity, organization and just over all being a great guy.

Bersani and the firm he works for did a horrible job on my case. I was involved in a accident back in 2004, this guy took my case and from the start it was a total cluster. This lawyer wasn't trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable at all in my case and never kept me informed. Very unprofessional to boot. During my deposition Mike Bersani flirted with the female lawyer that was asking me questions, acted very unprofessional. When he would tell me he would be in the office, he was either on vacation, doing errands or a doctors appointment. When asked numerous questions on my case and his conduct he became upset and my case went down hill from there. I ended up dropping him and getting a new lawyer. Its obvious by the past reviews they don't reflect his true side. What I have stated is very true and accurate, stay away from this lawyer and his firm if you want good results.

Mike Bersani recently represented me in a personal injury lawsuit, which resulted in a settlement, on the fourth day of the trial. In meeting with Mike several times before the trial, I sensed he was a competent, kind, intelligent person. On the first day, jury selection, it was obvious what a remarkable individual he is. Not only is he intelligent but he also one of the most respectful and kind attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I am in the law enforcement profession and routinely work with attorneys. Mike is in a class by himself. He regarded the court attendants, jurors, witnesses, for both sides, and other attorneys with the utmost kindness and respect. He demonstrated integrity and class in the courtroom.
I was extremely impressed by his knowledge of my accident. He knew my case as well as I did.
On the fourth day of the trial, a settlement was reached. There were two Defendants in this case, and Mike was able to reach settlements with both parties. One of the Defendants offered a settlement on the first day of the trial but Mike's awesome presentation of the case, resulted in their offer increasing, daily. By the fourth day, both parties were eager to settle, for an amount, that was considered fair.
I am proud to tell others about this amazing attorney and would highly recommend him.

Mike did an excellent job on my case. He kept me informed on everything that was happening and what needed to be done. He even called us to see how we were doing just because he wanted to. Mike treated me and my family more than just clients, he treated us like friends.
I would not hesitate to call Mike if I needed him to represent me again.

I would highly recommend Michael Bersani as your attorney.
Michael did an outstanding job litigating my dispute concerning a land lease for a cottage which I owned on Owasco Lake. The land was leased continuously since 1945, the year the cottage was built. I purchased the cottage in 1984 with the one and only lease, signed by the original property owner and me in 1987. The dispute centered around one point: was the lease still valid, even though the land had since changed ownership twice? Although we lost the original case in Cayuga County Supreme Court, Michael prevailed receiving a unanimous 5-0 judgment from the Supreme Court of the State of New York, Appellate Division, Fourth Judicial Department in Rochester. Michael did an outstanding job litigating my dispute and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
