Nadine was always very well prepared, efficient and responded to my questions in a timely manner. I was always confident she would get the best possible outcome for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer with her areas of expertise.

After being arrested on a 911 call and charged with 4 DV connected charges, we sought a lawyer outside of the public defender framework to handle the case. The prospectus provided by the website dealt with DV charges and influenced our decision. We met with Nadine at her office and after discussing possible scenarios, went ahead and contracted her. I had never been in trouble before and had no experience with lawyers or the legal process. Nadine outlined expectations and probable outcomes.
During this case, the prosecutor was uncharacteristically interested in prosecuting. She refused any pretrial disposition offered and insisted on taking the case to trial. After going through the arraignment and getting the requirements of the court, Nadine recommended I seek DV counseling, and assessment. From the assessment, I was expected to complete a series of Anger Management sessions. I participated wholeheartedly and after several pre-trial sessions, Nadine was successful in getting a modification to the no contact order with my spouse. After four months, we were finally able to be together again. Subsequently, we were forced to go to trial. At the readiness we were prepared to go forward, but my wife talked to the advocate again and through the cooperation between the advocate and Nadine, the prosecutor accepted a pre-trial disposition resulting in having the case frozen at the pre-trial stage and allowing me to move on with my life.
This law firm is busy and has experience in this legal specialty. They work as a team to provide assistance to clients.

Nadine and the whole staff were AMAZING from start to finish. There was no time where I was not informed or information was just a phone call away. Originaly arrested for DUI and refusal to blow, as the end result it was reduced to reckless driving. Nadine was very confident and professional with the drive to get things done! I Recommed Nadine especially if you are in the Military!

After researching on the internet, I found and decided to meet with Nadine. I was seen quickly and we discussed my case which was actually two of the same charges in different jurisdictions.
Nadine was very informative and spelled out what could happen, what things I could do to help my case in the time before my court date, and what she could do if those things happened. I took her advise and my charges and fines were drastically reduced as she said they would be. I was more than happy with my overall expierience with Nadine and would recommend her

Nadine was an extremely compassionate lawyer. She understood that this was a highly sensitive case for my family and myself. This was my second DV charge, but Nadine assured me that she would stick with me through all proceedings. I always had confidence in Nadine. She responded promptly when I had questions and supported me completely. Nadine represented me when the case went to trial and made a motion for dismissal before it went to the jury. The Judge concurred with Ms. Bertman and the charges were dismissed. Next Nadine was prepared to argue against a probation violation resulting from the dismissed charges and that was dismissed as well. Nadine was definitely a person I
could trust when I was frightened and unsure. If I ever needed representation again, I would not hesitate to hire Ms. Bertman. I was incredibly pleased not only by the results, but also by my entire experience as her client. She displayed a faith in me and won my case allowing me to move on with my life. I highly reccomend Nadine Bertman.

Nadine represented me in a DUI case. She was kind, nice, did a great job, communicated with me very well, and got back to me whenever I had a question. She was able to acheive the best possible outcome for my case by working with the prosecutor to reduce my charges to reckless driving. She also patiently answered questions my family had about my legal situation and said she would be there for us if we ever had additional questions or concerns. I am very pleased with her performance on my behalf and would recommend her to others without hesitation.

I have been in various court systems for several years, never quite able to get through all the problems. After I started working with Nadine and her office it took only a couple months for everything to be resolved. They were informative and extremely helpful through every step. Not only great at everything they did, they were also a better price than I was able to find for the problems that I had. Whatever problems you might have I would suggest having this office help you through it.
