The absolute best - in talent, experience and reputation
Jerry was my attorney through a very difficult, protracted divorce from a truly unreasonable person. His guidance was ALWAYS correct, and he knew from experience which battles to fight, and which would be expensive and futile, no matter how upset I was. Perhaps of most value is his reputation in the county courthouses. He has such a reputation as a reasonable attorney with reasonable solutions and proposals, someone who clearly has talked clients down from the ledge and gotten them to be realistic. This means that when he proposes a settlement or a solution, everybody listens. THIS is the person to have on your side. Yes, sometimes it's hard to hear, "you're absolutely right, but you'd be wasting your time and money and we would not win that point." But he's right. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Outstanding Lawyer
Jerry was extremely attentive, explained everything clearly, understood the finances around my case was extremely responsive to emails and phone calls. He makes you feel comfortable but is also a very well-informed Lawyer who is willing to go the extra mile for you. You can tell that he genuinely cares about his clients. Overall, he did a great job for me and I would highly recommend him.

Extraordinary Abilities, Experienced and Well Known, Familiar with the Judiciary, Great Court Presence, Compassionate Counsel
I retained Mr Berschler based on his reputation and several recommendations that held him in the highest regard. He is known for his extensive expertise in all phases of family law and domestic relations. I interviewed several lawyers and he was by far the one I felt most comfortable with and won my confidence. My situation was highly complex and contentious. After I hired him I found his advice to be spot on and consistently impressed me with his vast knowledge of the numerous personal, financial and litigation issues that arise in a divorce. I found him very competent and professional and has practiced before an all the judges in the Family Court and was familiar with the court personnel. Moreover, his extensive experience anticipated and illuminated the issues important to the court and allowed for proper preparation in advance of the numerous hearings in my case. The communications and support from him and his staff was thorough and consistent throughout the litigation process. He looked out for me and made me feel protected. His calm demeanor and compassion helped reduce the stress and anxiety that accompanied my divorce. I couldn't ask for a better advocate, adviser and confidant. I can recommend Mr Berschler without reservation. I am very so very grateful for him on my side.

Excellent! Excellent! So grateful I found him.
I am so lucky to have found Jerry to handle my case. Not only is he an amazing, experienced lawyer with an excellent reputation in the legal community, he is one of the kindest most genuinely caring people I have ever met. He Was so responsive and communicative and made me feel important and cared for. He is a sharp, smart attorney who advocates for his clients 100%. He really got the job done and got me a result that was even better than I had hoped for. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Unusually compassionate person who happens to practice law.
Jerry has handled quite a few personal injury cases for me and several of my friends over the years. In all cases, he was truly advocating for the underdog and went far and beyond to seek relief and ensure medical and occupational parity. Additionally, I have called him to help with all kinds of legal issues, e.g disputes with auto insurance companies, family custody arrangements and other issues that require sensitive expertise such as his. In all cases, Jerry focused his incredible energy on the human side of the issue as well and worked diligently to equitably enable us to work out situations that would have been intolerable without his support. Ethical, supportive, smart, witty...we count him as a family friend!

Excellent Go To Attorney
I have known Jerry for about 30 years. He has handled several cases for me and family or friends. I can call Jerry about any questions I have about my rights and he is well educated. The only thing he was horrible about was keeping me informed about my cases. Never would return my calls.

Hire Someone Else
I was referred to Mr. Berschler by another attorney who stated that he was the best. Not. I ended up firing him. #1. I asked him to file my divorce as “with cause”, because I had proof that it was appropriate. He did not, and then when I inquired into the progress, he said it was too late to file “with cause” and that I should just sign the “no fault” papers presented by my husband’s attorney. ( it actually turned out that it was not too late and he could have counter filed.) # 2. He did not file for custody in the beginning and told me there was no point in filing for support early on as my husband “was paying the bills”. This advice caused huge problems down the road. #3. When he called to update me he was usually in his car driving home. Hard to believe he was committed to doing a good job for me when his phone contacts seemed like afterthoughts. #4. His treatment of my case was simply pro forma with no apparent consideration given to my situation financially, or my life as a single parent with 2 small children. #5. The last straw was his inability to understand the complexities of several parts of my husband’s job which impacted the settlement negatively. I fired him. The divorce began 1999 and took several years and cost many, many thousands of dollars, most of which was paid to Mr. Berschler. To this day my life is impacted by his actions.

Terrible Attorney
It was as if he was a new graduate attorney. He had NO handle of the Judge in the court room. He totes in his profile that he is a child support specialist. Honestly, he cost me THOUSANDS of dollars and charged me THOUSANDS of dollars with no results. Poor custody lawyer!

Complacent and unprepared. Almost seems new to the game. Made fatal errors in the handling of my case
