  1. Only interested in your money and won't care a bit about your needs

    • I do not recommend Jerold Berschler.
    • I hired Jerold more than 3 years ago.
    • Jerold handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    He agreed to work with me on my case and then, after I paid his retainer, dumped his partner onto me in the last minute, whom I was not prepared to hire as my lawyer. The partner sat back and did nothing for me in court and just spent all the time I was paying him, chatting with opposing counsel about personal stuff and people they knew in common. Lost my entire case due to his irresponsible behavior

  2. Excellent Go To Attorney

    • I recommend Jerold Berschler.
    • I hired Jerold more than 3 years ago.
    • Jerold handled my Car / Auto Accident matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    I have known Jerry for about 30 years. He has handled several cases for me and family or friends. I can call Jerry about any questions I have about my rights and he is well educated.
    The only thing he was horrible about was keeping me informed about my cases. Never would return my calls.

    It was as if he was a new graduate attorney. He had NO handle of the Judge in the court room. He totes in his profile that he is a child support specialist. Honestly, he cost me THOUSANDS of dollars and charged me THOUSANDS of dollars with no results. Poor custody lawyer!

    Complacent and unprepared. Almost seems new to the game. Made fatal errors in the handling of my case

  5. Unusually compassionate person who happens to practice law.

    Jerry has handled quite a few personal injury cases for me and several of my friends over the years. In all cases, he was truly advocating for the underdog and went far and beyond to seek relief and ensure medical and occupational parity.

    Additionally, I have called him to help with all kinds of legal issues, e.g disputes with auto insurance companies, family custody arrangements and other issues that require sensitive expertise such as his.

    In all cases, Jerry focused his incredible energy on the human side of the issue as well and worked diligently to equitably enable us to work out situations that would have been intolerable without his support.

    Ethical, supportive, smart, witty...we count him as a family friend!
