About Me

The Berkowitz Law Group consists of two attorneys, myself and Joan L. Berkowitz. Ms. Berkowitz focuses primarily bankruptcy cases.  .  My area of practice is a little more diverse.  While roughly 60% of my time is dedicated to my personal injury cases, I also focus on creditor harassment, foreclosure defense, and personal bankruptcy.  I believe that the the only way to get your client what he or she truly deserves is to be willing to go to trial when the need arises.  It seems that more than half of my injury cases get filed in the court system these days and I recently won a foreclosure trial against a major bank.  Our firm does not advertise.  All of my clients were referred, so I rely 100% on my reputation.  This keeps overhead low and provides me the ability to operate with many fewer cases than some other firms out there.  I like to be able to spend a lot time time on each individual case and to make sure that each client gets the attention they deserve.  Our consultations are always free and you will always feel welcome and treated with respect at my law firm.
