I hired Vera for a recent dissolution of marriage and Domestic Violence case
Divorce is one of the most difficult and traumatizing experiences you can go through in life.
In my case, everything was happening together, this tragedy and also the developing of my career.
I thought I could not survive so many hard moments at a time, I was considering throwing away my dreams of becoming a Dentist because there was no way to handle my traumatic divorce and my career simultaneously.
Definitely God had everything under control and somebody told me about Ms Vera Bergermann, a beautiful lady with a great spirit and compassion. As soon as I spoke to her, I could recognize a very competent attorney with great experience to take my case, supporting me with her excellent advice during my tough and stressful time, there was not doubt for me "I was in the right place"
Because my primary language is not English, Vera took her time and explained to me everything very clearly and in detail in such a way that I was highly confident this attorney would fight for me until the final round, and that is exactly what happened in the courtroom. Vera showed aggressive, confident and knowledgeable defense, and she was so well organized that she could not miss any aspect of my case, making sure to protect my interests.
I cannot finish this review without mentioning the excellent team this firm has, which is seldom found. They are characterized by teamwork, professionalism, respect, confidentiality, and compassion. Thank you Desiree for the support you gave me to move forward; Kim for your prompt information and always being there for me in this difficult time; Chris, the paralegal, for being so well prepared and professional. Thanks to all I am free of an undeserved husband and financially secure to face my dream in the USA. Without hesitation I highly recommend this attorney, if you are looking for somebody that fights untiringly for you, the name is Vera Bergermann !

Divorce is hard and sometimes I just wanted to give up. You know, just give everything away and run to freedom. Vera wouldn't let me give up. She said that the law says I'm entitled to a certain share of what we had and I earned it and deserved it. I guess my divorce was about average for how long divorces take, so it was my anxiety, not the system that made it seem so long. Vera and her staff, (Kim, Desiree, Chris all helped me), talked me off the ledge emotionally. I really appreciate that. I recommend Vera and her law firm.

Vera currently represents me in an ongoing divorce and custody case here in Lee County. Although the case itself has been prolonged by the court for about a yr and a half now, vera and her team have always been timely and efficient! It's so incredibly reassuring to be represented by a lawyer who knows what they're doing. I know that may sound a bit extreme, but I have retained others whom have not been as knowledgeable of our local court system.. let alone practicing law! Vera is calm, collective, and organized in the court room. She speaks with dignity and reflects nothing less than an intelligent and sophisticated woman. Vera also in particular, has quite the eye for detail. And, has an open perception of different paths/direction in targeting your ultimate goal or solution. Kim, Desiree, and Chris (all active members with various tasks in the firm) have always been warm, welcoming, and kind. Each of them have in some way went above and beyond any expectation, and were ginuinely helpful. Its so nice to not only feel, but know what a valued client you are.

I was looking for a divorce atty in the Ft Myers area to handle dissolution of my 16 year marriage. After calling multiple law offices, I decided to hire Vera to handle my case. I did so based on her knowledge, tenure and most importantly her ambitions to settle the case quickly and fairly as possible. I had heard of stories of many lawyers working to drag out cases to trial for their own benefit and not the clients.
Vera delivered an excellent result in my case despite unreasonable actions from my ex and her legal team. Given this scenario I believed she settled as quickly and reasonably as possible with the best possible result. I found her knowlege and creativeness to solutions very beneficial to the settlement.
I would highly recommed Vera to handle your divorce and also handle a pre-nup if you are contemplating marriage in the near future

I was greatly impressed from the moment of our first meeting, where Vera offered to get clear information on how to register my out of state divorce in Florida. Her knowledge and expertise would reassure anyone that this lady knows what she is talking about. At the same time, she took the time to explain and direct me like the best college counselor would. I walked out of her office feeling empowered and respected . I would trust this Law Firm with any Family issues that may arise in the future.

After a 23 year marriage fell apart and attempts at reconciliation fell through, I decided Vera would be my best choice based on her excellent online reviews. I could not be more satisfied with my choice. My calls were always answered, I always received great direction and advice, and our meetings always left me feeling I was making the right decision. I would encourage anybody considering hiring a lawyer to give serious consideration to Vera. I'm very grateful!

I never knew about this site, until a friend recommended I search here to find a lawyer to help me with a divorce, I cared little about, (due to a 10 + yr. separation, out of sight out of mind kind of thing). Yet, knew if I wanted to have ANY sort of fine relationship in the future, I must take care of my past. So, I reviewed several options in Lee County, and decided on Vera. OMG-what a mistake, all I get is the run around. I paid my fee for a UCD, and have been treated like a red-headed step child. I kept looking for "filings" with the Court. None are visible, kept calling, kept the faith, still waiting. Vera's firm "the gauntlet" keep affirming "your case is in the works", isn't working for me. I have paid my dues, and have little faith now. I might need to ask "soon" for whatever funds have not been used yet, to acquire another more efficient firm. To date, Vera hasn't been my point of contact, the onion peel is ongoing.

Vera was very upfront with me from the beginning. After fielding my concerns, she walked me through what she could do for me, and it was basically what we had discussed.
She was great to have on my side as she was able to outwit the competition time after time. I was lookging for a lawyer who was tenecious and smart, this is what I got in Vera.

I met Vera thru the internet. I was in search of a good divorce attorney. I typed in best divorce lawyer in Ft. Myers Florida and Vera's firm came up. I called and made an appointment to see her. Explained the situation to her and she took over from there. Her staff was on top of the case throughout it's conclusion.
My best interest was Vera's top priority and the case was settled before the actual court hearing. Vera's legal fees were very cheap considering what all she and her staff did regarding the case. Vera is a very bright lady and I recommend her as your attorney of choice.

Vera helped us with a custody case and was very helpful,kept us updated on everything and always called us back if she wasn't in to talk to us. I would use her again in a moment and highly recommend her to anyone.
