I am a Columbia, SC attorney committed to protecting the rights of the injured and aggrieved. I have dedicated my entire professional career to the representation of individuals and families in personal injury cases involving car wrecks, trucking accidents, wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, and other areas of civil law.

I am a South Carolina native, born and raised in Columbia. After pursuing college studies at the University of Washington and Harvard University, I decided to return to South Carolina so that I could live, practice law, and serve the community in which I was raised.

I graduated magna cum laude from the College of Charleston in 2004 and received my Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2008.

Phenomenal Attorney
Riding my 2012 Harley Street Glide was one of the greatest pleasures I've ever embraced. My 2012 Harley was my second bike and between them, I motored over 126,000 miles of fun filled memories across America. For my Harley friends and I, owning a Harley touring bike meant riding your bike from start to finish. Those rides took me to Sturgis, South Dakota twice, Las Vegas, Ozarks in Arkansas, Key West four times, Rolling Thunder in Washington, DC four times, Thunder on the Beach in Panama City Beach Florida, bike weeks in South Carolina & Florida and numerous local Poker Runs to benefit Veterans, Toys for Tots, The Newberry Boys Farm and other Community causes. But let's not forget the comradery of my Harley Brothers & Sisters. My fun filled experiences came to an abrupt halt when an automobile cut out in front of me. As news of my accident quickly spread, I received a call from Jim, one of my very best friends. When Jim speaks, I listen and when he recommended Kenneth Berger, I didn't question him at all. It was from that call and subsequent consultation that the dark cloud that hovered over me was lifted. For a while after the accident, I was unable to drive, even getting in and out of the car was a painfully difficult task, so Kenneth Berger came to my home where I met a very accomplished and capable attorney who was genuinely concern about me. Only after settling his concerns did we start conversing about all aspects of my case that once fully discussed, Kenneth ended our consultation with a statement that to this day still resonates with me. Hey said, "recuperate, continue living/enjoying your life and let me worry/take care of everything else". I learned quickly that Kenneth Berger is complimented with extremely accomplished and capable staff. Along with Kenneth, they stayed on top of every detail of my case and at numerous times their handling of my case felt just like family as they would call and/or email me almost as much as my immediate family. They kept up with all my doctor appointments, my surgery and all the outcomes. They managed all of my medical bills and the occasional nagging collection attempts and if that wasn't enough, they would call and/or email just to check on me and made sure I was doing okay. Yet again and just like family, they were always asking if I needed anything and/or if they could do anything for me. Through all of this, I never had to call or inquire about any detail of my case. It's this never-ending attention to detail that truly allowed me to "recuperate and continue living/enjoying my life". As a motorcycle rider, it's our hope and prayer that with each and every ride, everyone returns to/from their destination safely. Though faith took me down a path of uncertainty, it was faith that lead me to the very capable hands and guidance of the Kenneth Berger Law Firm which ultimately lead to a better than expected settlement. I could not have received a better recommendation than The Kenneth Berger Law Firm and rest assured should any of my family and/or friends encounter a similar faith, I will be singing the praises of the Kenneth Berger Law Firm!!!

One word, Amazing.
One word, Amazing. The K.B. team took care of me from start to finish during a very difficult time in my life. When it comes to business they gained my trust on multiple occasions by educating me about the ins and outs of the entire process. Their communication and hospitality makes me feel like family every time I step into the office. If I started the process over, I would go with Berger without hesitation every time.

They will be there for you.

Five-Star Legal Team
Kenny Berger and his associates are a five-star legal team that worked tirelessly on our daughter’s behalf following an out-of-state car wreck in which she was hit from behind at a red light. This case marked our first experience with a lawsuit. Over the 3 years, Kenny and his team were personable, forthright and accessible no matter the hour and quickly replied to emails, phone calls and text messages. Kenny has a depth of knowledge regarding personal injury with particular expertise in head trauma. He and his team quelled our anxiety and exercised due diligence in managing all angles of our daughter’s situation. Clearly much time was invested in his comprehensive and thoughtful presentations. Beyond bringing his professional competence to bear on our daughter’s case, he handled all of us with compassionate ease and sincere care. We are sure that Kenny’s office is extremely busy, but we were treated as though we were the only clients he was serving. We are tremendously grateful that he partnered with us to reach a positive and generous resolution to our daughter’s case.

Highly Recommend!
I am so thankful for Kenny and his team’s guidance and support throughout the legal process following a car accident. As a future social worker, I am actively using my voice to fight for the good of others. However, Kenny empowered me to use my voice to stand up for myself - a valuable gift that will last far beyond my time in his office. I highly recommend him and those who work alongside him. Each one of them showed me compassion and care, acted as family when my parents were so far away, and walked beside me as I navigated this path. I can't express my gratitude enough!

Honest and Compassionate
My husband was in a terrible car crash involving an 18-wheeler. This was our first time in need of a personal injury attorney and we were nervous about finding the right attorney for us, and we were dreading the thought of going to court. We only knew that we wanted an experienced attorney with integrity. After meeting with Mr. Berger, we knew we had found the perfect attorney for us. We felt like a huge weight had been lifted from our shoulders because he made us realize that this was just a small part of our lives and he assured us that they would handle it. We were free to focus on healing and trying to get back to the life we knew before the crash. Mr. Berger explained the process and how and how often they would keep us informed. They did exactly what they said they would do. We were always informed and if we had a question, it was answered on the same day or at the latest, the next day. We were treated like VIP clients on each and every occasion. We never had to wait a long period of time upon arriving for an appointment and we were never rushed to finish an appointment. The bottom line is we found Mr. Berger and his staff to be professional and compassionate. We were confident in Mr. Berger's representation and completely at ease knowing he and his staff were handling our case. I can't emphasize enough how good it felt to know Mr. Berger was fighting for us, and we could tell that he is indeed a fighter for justice. We had absolutely no worries about the outcome of the case We would highly recommend The Law Office of Kenneth Berger to our family, friends and anyone else who may need legal services. We simply can not imagine this experience going any better. We are forever grateful to Mr. Berger and his staff.

Honesty, Loyalty and Respect
I was injured in a car accident and unsure about how my case would go. I was surprised by how friendly and highly spirited Kenny and his staff were. They treated like a human being and explained everything in plenty of detail. Now that my case has come to an end, I feel like I got the most out of the law suit as possible. I would recommend someone to Kenny, because he settled my case and we had fun.

Excellence
Kenny helped my family navigate a successful path as the plaintiffs in a complex personal injury case that involved products liability and institutional failures. This was not an easy case, but Kenny showed wisdom and talent in his practice of law. I greatly appreciate his service.

Excellent work ethic
"I was injured in a car wreck, and several co-workers recommended that I speak with Kenny about my options. I was looking for a strong firm with people that were friendly, but up front and honest about the process. I would give Kenny's firm an "A+." Everyone was respectful and genuinely concerned that I get a great result. Kenny took control of the case which kept me from worrying about it. The process was lengthy, but I am relieved and thankful about how it ended. I would refer someone to this firm because they are efficient, hard working, and trustworthy. If I had to describe Kenny's firm to someone else, I would say that they are dedicated, keep you up to date, take away your fears, and have an excellent staff. I seriously cannot thank Kenny and everyone at his office enough

Kenny says what he does and does what he says.
Kenny has been responsive and actually listened to my concerns and provided solutions. I asked of Kenny to take over all aspects of WC/personal injury cases and to keep me informed and he has done just that lifting a burden from me and allowing me to take care of my responsibilities while he kept a watchful eye on my best interests. The best review I can give is Kenny told me what he was going to do and he followed through and did what he said.
