James Michael Bergener

About me

Starting a business is about doing something that matters. I wanted to create a different kind of law firm – one rooted in the values of Main Street, not Wall Street. At Bergener Mirejovsky, our primary focus is to make sure you get the help you need. 


We have won thousands of personal injury claims, and are ready to put that extensive experience to work for you. Before I founded the firm, I briefly defended insurance carriers against workers' compensation claims. This gave me the unique perspective on strategies used by insurance companies to deny and delay valid claims. I now use this insight to protect the rights of my injured clients.
