I literally thank God for Seth Bernake, without him I do not believe I would have been able to get my employer to cover the surgery I needed after my accident. I had a very complicated case medically and the insurance company played every game in the book to get out of paying but Seth knew all the tricks and ultimately got them to pay for everything. Throughout the process his professional, calm and reassuring demeanor put me at ease during what was an extremely difficult time. I would not hesitate to recommend Seth to anyone in need of a lawyer for a workman's compensation issue.

Have known Seth for over seven years and can't say enought about his kindness and understanding of your situation but the best thing is his professionalism. I would not seek any other attorney but him. He truly has his clients best interst at heart, and his knowledge of the law is just impeccable.

First and foremost, I contacted Mr. Bernanke based on a reference given for taking excellent care of his clients regarding workers compensation type injuries. As an insurance agent, I had a severe ankle injury resulting in my inability to perform my duties and later resulting in termination.
There were four very specific characteristics, which I looked for, in my legal counsel: thoroughness, proactive, knowledge of the systems/law and equally important was his ability to empathize and understand how these issues affected me personally.
Seth and his paralegal staff were extremely thorough in all stages of the discovery process. His follow through in ensuring I received checks on time, but made sure I was compensated appropriately was paramount.
His superb knowledge of the legal and Medicare systems surrounding workers compensation made it possible to settle my case with minimum compromise resulting in a more than adequate financial payout. I highly recommend Seth as an attorney with outstanding expertise in all aspects of understanding the value of a workers compensation case.
