    • I recommend Barry Bernstein.
    • I hired Barry 1-3 years ago.
    • Barry handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    Barry Bernstien's law office has represented me on 2 seperate occasions. Each time Mr. Bernstien was personable, exeptionally knowledgeble, tactful and responsive to my needs. He is also an honest lawyer who offers reasonable fees for complex legal cases.

    • I do not recommend Barry Bernstein.
    • I hired Barry more than 3 years ago.
    • Barry handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    This guy is just in it for the money. He takes as many cases as he can at one time and ends up sending different lawyers to represent you that dont know much about your case. He sends his "case manager" Art Cortez to your home and makes a lot of promises. Art cortez is not even a qualified lawyer just a front man to collect cash. THEY DONT EVEN HAVE A REAL OFFICE. ITS A P.O. BOX. Beware. I would not put my life in his hands again. I later paid for another lawyer to represent me.

    • I recommend Barry Bernstein.
    • I hired Barry more than 3 years ago.
    • Barry handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    My wife's ex-husband was loosing a nasty custody battle. His only shot at getting the kids back was to claim they were being sexually abused by their step-father (me). Mr. Bernstein was hired immediately (as soon as I was contacted by the cops) to defend me and he kept the charges from ever being filed. It cost me $5,000; however what's the price of your freedom and reputation. It's much harder to defend yourself from behind bars, and bail would have cost just as much or more had I not hired a great attorney. What's a great attorney? The one that delivers the desired results!!!

    Barry O. Bernstein was hired to represent me in a criminal matter that if convicted I could have received two life sentences. Bernstein was paid $30k and I was not satisfied with his performance and would urge anyone who needs a good lawyer to BEWARE of BERNSTEIN!
