Hard to find a better lawyer.
I spent a long time looking for a lawyer I could trust that was not just about getting a retainer. He was recommend by a friend and from the beginning his entire office made me feel like everything was going to be taken care of. And it was. He outlined my options and came up with a brilliant solution to my case, which ended up saving me a lot of money and future hardships.

Attorney Bergdoll did a excellent job at taking his time to listen and work with me on issues I had and was honest up front towards my options and focus on what was best for my child. I would recommend him if you need a honest upfront options that does not affect anyone in the custody situation, and an understanding explanation on pros and cons to help you with the decision making you may have.

John prepared my will and healthcare directive. I appreciated the way he took the time to listen to my concerns and then carefully discussed my options so that I could make the best informed decision for my particular situation. I left thinking why didn't I do this sooner. The overall office was also welcoming and came with the exceptional service of a family owned business that has built a solid reputation for two generations.

Fast and easy
John helped me with a straight forward case...however some other lawyers don't seem to really listen when you talk and they just take notes and you have to start over every time you talk to them. John can pick up where you left off last time and it just makes you feel a lot better when your lawyer understands what you are going through and understands the problem. Makes resolving it a lot easier and smoother.
