I met Ophelia under less-than-ideal circumstances, and from the moment we spoke, she was caring and sympathetic. She was very upfront with what could and could not be done in my situation and did not create any false expectations. Ophelia constantly kept me in the loop and gave me words of encouragement throughout the process. She was extremely assertive with the courts and was able to give me an opportunity that may not have been available otherwise.
Working with Ophelia was a pleasure and she made an uncomfortable situation bearable. I would highly recommend her to anyone that needs assistance in the future.

Extra emphasis added to the question: "Would you recommend this lawyer?" After 20 years of marriage, 3 kids, and building a successful business, I began a frightening,confusing and heart breaking journey through the legal system. It simply was not possible to resolve issues in an uncontested way. I did all I could do and exhausted every possible avenue to no avail. After years of legal wrangling involving several different attorneys, my faith in the system, and the legal profession in general for that matter, was all but gone. I will spare the details and simply urge anyone reading these words who may find themselves facing, or perhaps already in the midst of a similar situation to invest enough time to consult Ms. Bernal-Mora. I only wish I would have had the benefit of finding her earlier. She is knowledgeable, she is aggressive, she is a tremendous asset to have in your corner, and most importantly she is trustworthy. I can not say enough about this lady, and I would not hesitate for an instant in recommending her to anyone who finds themselves in need of legal representation. She is a true professional.

I interviewed three attorneys to represent me in a difficult and complex divorce. Ms. Mora was chosen due to her patience, knowledge, creativity, and presence of confidence in my particular case. She helped me understand the laws that applied to my case and provided me with options. In her explanation she helped me see the advantages and disadvantages to the appropriate options. Even when we were at the end of the case and an unexpected matter came up and she recommended an appropriate direction that made all parties content.
Ms. Mora has been available to me, if she was not in the office her office knew how to get hold of her, therefore she got back to me. She always let me know where we stood as far as the process goes, so she kept me informed. She was patient in moving at my speed, without pushing me to me injudicious and spontaneous decisions. She kept me abreast on the timelines of certain legal procedures, but gave me options to adjust my position.
I would not hesitate to recommend her to represent anyone requiring an astute attorney in her areas of expertise, both criminal and civil law.
