I have needed the services of Mr. Bergan 3 times over the last 20 years. The outcomes were always great. I have sent two of my friends to him over the years and they were equally as happy. Will continue to use Gary exclusively.
I retained Mr. Bergan on a family law case and ended up having to replace him after many tactical and technical errors. The successor attorney did an excellent job, reversing the outcome of the work Mr. Bergan provided. He's a nice enough fellow, just not all that competent.
I work with attorneys on a daily basis and am pretty clear on what reasonable expectations should be.
Please understand that Gary represented me in a case that we lost. I am okay with that and am trying to offer an honest opinion..
Gary WILL take on a hard case, and unlike some attorneys will always respond promptly.
However, in MY case and in hindsight, come court date I found him to be completely unprepared. I probably shouldn't have been surprised as he had a very bad habit of waiting until the last minute to put the paperwork together even though we had months to prepare.
If I had to sum it up in one sentence I would say that at best (in MY case) he was at best imcompetent., at worst corrupt and only interested in the money.
I could be wrong about him but you might consider looking elsewhere unless you are just looking for someone to fill out a will or something of that sort.
I've used Gary a couple of times over the past 15 years or so. He's been fantastic. I highly recomend him.
