Insurance settlement
I was lucky enough to be referred to thomas D. Barret who handled my case in a professional way. He made every thing easy for me, since could not get around very well. He answered all my questions and explained everything he was doing. My settlement was more than I expected. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Representation made easy and successful
I was a pedestrian walking into traffic as is accepted when a motorist came up behind me and went left of center hitting and seriously injuring me. Tom visited me at AGH hospital and made several offers and recommendations before I asked him to take the case. As the case proceeded Tom kept me updated and explained everything that was happening in a way I understood. After a period of negotiations he finally convinced the Insurance Co. to settle for the maximum amount of the policy limits. Tom was always available to talk and always made me feel comfortable. I am grateful that Tom was referred to me and everything he told me was 100% true. I could not ask for more. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of legal representation.

Amazing Result!
When we called Waldman & Associates, Thomas Berret was very kind and courteous, but his expertise and experience in personal injury law was unmatched. The firm keep us abreast of the status of every aspect of my case. When Tom called and told us how much the case settled for, we were speechless. I could not have imagined how quickly and easily our case would be resolved and I do not think another law firm would have done as well. We are very thankful for Tom and Hal.

Superb Attorney, Mr. Berret, Highly recommended -- Personal Injury Case
I was involved in a bus accident in pittsburgh and broke my ribs. I had several weeks in miserable consitions. I want to get something back for my pains and sufferings. The port authority claimed that it was not their fault and pointed me to the state farm auto insurance. Other attorneys I have consulted said they would be able to help me to claim for a couple thousand. But Mr. Berret managed to get me $6000.00! He is a superb bargainer and very very professional in dealing with this kind of injury cases. He exactly understood the situation and took the most appropriate actions at each stage of the case. I am very satisfied and highly recommend Mr. Berret to everyone who needs help for injury cases.
