    I endorse this lawyer. I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Bergman on a child support matter that had a few complexities. Mr. Bergman's professionalism coupled with his expertise and skill in the law allowed us to successfully settle on terms which were beyond satisfactory to our clients. On a personal level, Mr. Bergman proved to be a compassionate and understanding individual. In a field where opposing counsel can be oftentimes be ruthless, Mr. Bergman was quite the opposite: a refined and very considerate person.
