Excellent Lawyer
I hired Brad Berfus to represent my son that had 10 DMV summonses. I contacted 3 other attorneys previously and they were unwilling to take his case because it would be a waste of money, there is nothing they can do, but get a settlement because that is what the court will always do. It was recommended that my son used the money to pay for his summones. Brad requested documentation that I provided and 8 summonses were dismissed. The remaining 2 were reduced by approximately 60% of the proposed fines. We are extremely grateful to Brad Berfus. Additionally, he was very responsive and moderately priced fees.

The perfect experience
Brad was amazing from the start. He went above and beyond what I could have asked for. He did tons of research regarding my case, he drove all the way out to Westchester to court for me, he fixed my problem in a very timely manner, he responded to calls/texts right away, and he checked up on me during and even after my case was completed. I would def use Brad for any future legal needs as well as recommend him to everyone.

Only the best!
I was in desperate search of a traffic lawyer after been having 9 points on my drivers license, facing an additional 7 points due to 3 tickets, I finally decided to take care of 6 months after the infraction. (lost my job, wasn't able to make a payment, etc) I was basically facing having my license revoked. Upon a quick Google search, I was presented with a traffic lawyer who I thought was in my vicinity but was actually far out of reach so he introduced me to Bradley who agreed to take on my case for a very great deal. I've never had to hire a "lawyer" before, so I was/kind've wasn't aware how much it would cost me but he really pulled through for me and helped me out very professionally for the price we agreed on and I am VERY grateful he was able to do that for me. I had tickets for moving from a lane unsafely, following too closely and obstruction of a rear view mirror. All three were dropped from 9 points + god knows how many fines to 3, zero point parking violations. I was ecstatic and while coming up with the high fines was an issue and eventually able to be taken care of, I am very grateful Bradley was able to take this case for me and really pull through. I'll take the high fines and run over having my license taken away over TRAFFIC VIOLATIONS. Bradley, I still can't not thank you enough. I definitely will use you in the future and refer you to all my friends and family. Nobody honestly does it better. This lawyer also kept me out of jail. I am a free man and its all thanks to this gentlemen. Thank you again Sir!

Many happy clients referred
I have had the pleasure of referring multiple clients in the field of divorce and traffic violations to Bradley of the years, and as an attorney myself, I have always been pleased with his professionalism and manner in which he has handled the clients in any matter I have dealt with him. I highly recommend Bradly to anyone looking for an attorney in a matrimonial or traffic related situation.

One in a million!
I was referred to Mr. Berfas by a close friend after struggling in court with my ex-husband for nearly 3 years. I had previously retained the services of 2 other attorneys, both of who left me greatly dissatisfied. One was a "tough talker" who promised me results but ended up doing nothing more than racking up an exorbitant bill. The other seemed knowledgeable at first, but was almost impossible to reach and made numerous "technical errors" (i.e. not filing papers on time, etc) that hurt both my case and my pocket book. By the time I met with Mr. Berfas I was at my wit's end and disillusioned by the entire legal system. From our first conversation, I felt extremely reassured that I had finally found a lawyer who would work tirelessly on my behalf. He was honest and reasonable and gave me a truthful assessment of my case without "sugar coating" his words or being too blunt. He came up with a detailed strategy of how he planned to approach my case in court and gave me excellent suggestions that made a huge difference in my favor. Additionally, his fees were very reasonable and my calls and inquiries were always returned on a timely basis. What I liked most about Mr. Berfas is that he doesn't need to resort to underhanded tactics or mud slinging to get the job done. Unlike many attorneys who will instruct their clients to "play dirty", Mr. Berfas is able to win his case on his merit as an outstanding attorney. I could not have asked for a better lawyer and have recommended him to others without hesitation

The Go to guy
I found Brad through mutual friends on Facebook, Brad was assertive and honest and even came in slightly under budget. if you need an honest lawyer that will work hard for you Brad is the professional for the job.

Brad is a very thorough and competent professional who always had my best interests in mind. I was always informed and I always felt like i was in very good hands. He never missed an opportunity to reassure me and he always took my calls. What I especially liked about Brad was his ability to remain calm in crisis situations and talk things out.

Traffic ticket
Great experience. I've used him for multiple traffic tickets. Always got dismissed or much lower value. He was very reasonable. I'd recommend but if I have to use him again I'm gonna have to switch to biking to get around or avoid tickets. Lol.

I own a delivery business and have used Brad several times for some of my driver's tickets. I have always found him to be reliable and fair. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for any help with tickets or moving violations

My Former Lawyer
I am a former client of Mr Berfas I hired Mr. Berfas to obtain the money from a bank account from my mother’s will. The bank account was for $25,000. He said he would charge me $2000 for this service with a $500 deposit. He said it would take about a month if all went well. It took him about two and a half months. He charged me $3500 because he said it took more work than expected. I paid him but I will never use him again. During the period of him handling of this case, he seemed impatient when I called him to ask for progress. I think he had a job and many other clients I would give him a poor rather than a fair. The only good thing he did was he got me my money eventually.

Response from Bradley Berfas August 24, 2020
I actually just came across this negative review, not sure why I have not seen it before, or I would have addressed it then. I have a very good memory when it comes to clients & I honestly do not even remember this one. In fact, I do not even deal in this particular field, so to say I am shocked by this review is an understatement. My clients know that my fees are always reasonable & I do not give a flat fee & then charge $1000 more plus I have all the patience in the world when dealing with clients, as I have explained things over & over until my client understands it in full. Moreover, my other 5 star reviews speak for themselves & I would be happy to address a wrong if I can recollect my memory on this, but this is not a case that I personally handled.

This guy is a scammer
I hired Berfas for a simple matter. I do not wish to disclose it as it is private. But Berfas was nothing but unprofessional, greedy and arrogant. He didn’t take the time to review documents and statements. Constantly rushed things and didn’t pay attention to matters at hand. I would give a zero or negative score if I were able to! Stay far away from Bradley! Horrible lawyer and a disgrace to the Justice system of America!

Divorce and separation Attorney | Aug 24
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"There are plenty of divorce lawyers, everyone knows it. Unfortunately, many just want your money and lack the knowledge to help you. Brad GENUINELY cares about you and your children. It does not hurt that he's hyper diligent and smart as a whip. Do not mistake his kindness for you for weakness. Just thank heaven he is on your side, because he will destroy the competition. His sharp sense of humor, competence and calm demeanor make this atrocious time so much easier. Though we often compete for similar clients, I am honored to provide this endorsement so people can differentiate who the gems and powerful advocates are. You cannot be in better hands than Brad!"
