Endorse Bernard
Workers compensation Attorney | Sep 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Bernie's a very good lawyer. For twenty-five years he has been representing injured employees, terminated employees, employees that have not been paid their wages, and those that can no longer work and need social security disability benefits. He works hard and looks strategically on how he can have a favorable outcome for his clients. I would strongly recommend him to anyone for their worker's compensation case, employment case, or social security case. He has had great success over the years."
