As an Assistant District Attorney, I prosecuted hundreds of criminal cases. As an “insurance defense” attorney, I was hired by insurance companies to defend people and businesses being sued in civil court.  I have been appointed as Special Prosecutor by three different District Attorneys in serious criminal matters involving Police Corruption, Sexual Assault and Attempted Murder. I have  appeared in cases before the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court as a special prosecutor and as counsel to civil litigants, as well as before the New Hampshire Supreme Court as criminal defense counsel.  I am an experienced trial attorney that can handle your matter from investigation through trial and, if necessary, to the appeals court.

The Best Defense Attorney Andrew Berman
Attorney Andrew Berman was extremely thorough. In my case he was relentless in seeking justice. I couldn’t see my self depending on any other attorney. Attorney Berman is without a shadow of doubt the best there is. I highly recommend EquitasLaw LLP and Attorney Andrew Berman.

Great attorney.
Attorney Andrew Berman is without a doubt one of the best attorneys I have ever met. He is always accessible, a consummate professional. I would recommend him to anybody seeking representation. He made a very stressful time in my life more tolerable. Having him representing me gave me the confidence I needed. He is without a doubt an outstanding attorney. I cannot thank him enough for his work.

An attorney who's truly commited to Equitas: justice.
Attorney Berman is a consummate professional. He is very respectful and also highly approachable and accessible. He listened to my concerns with empathy and with a genuine desire to clear me of charges related to a misunderstanding gone horribly awry. He achieved the practically unachievable: convincing the judge that I deserved a Continuance Without a Finding for a charge for which judges typically do not issue CWOFs. He was able to do this drawing from his extensive criminal defense experience and by working closely with me to ensure that my case was the strongest that it could possibly be. His firm couldn't have a more appropriate name: Equitas, meaning justice in Latin, is exactly what Attorney Berman is committed to and nothing less. Anyone considering him should know that they would be in expert hands. Do not hesitate to retain him. Your freedom and record will be all the better off for it! Criminal cases can be extremely draining and stressful, but working with Andrew greatly mitigates that. I can't thank Andrew enough for everything he has done for me, and I know that he and his team at Equitas are going to keep doing what they do best: pursuing justice for their clients.

Very Knowledgeable, Prepared and Accessible
A knowledgeable and skilled lawyer who was always available to answer my calls and my questions through a difficult situation, which involved criminal charges and a possible lawsuit. By far the best lawyer I saw in the courtroom too, both articulate and prepared. I highly recommend his services.

Litigation Attorney | Oct 17
Relationship: Co-worker
"I have had the pleasure of working with Attorney Berman and seeing him practice for several years. In that time he has shown exemplary advocacy skills, both inside and outside the courtroom. As a litigator, Andrew Berman earns his place among the state’s finest trial attorneys, making it no wonder that he has argued before the highest court in multiple jurisdictions. His fastidiousness in preparing for trial is something to aspire to, and is most clearly shown in the results that he earns for his clients. A consummate advocate, Attorney Berman is capable of guiding a client through the most disheartening of circumstances with confidence. It has not only been to my great satisfaction personally to have worked with Andrew Berman, but it is also professionally gratifying to be able to associate with such a quality attorney."
