I strongly recommend Ken Bernard to my customers for any litigation involving personal injury, wrongful death, and car accident cases. He has represented my family for years, and he has always been honest, conscientious and dedicated to his clients. He is client focused and result oriented.

Ken Bernard is a honest and hardworking personal injury attorney. He has represented family members and myself in a variety of lawsuits, including insurance claims and auto accidents. I recommend him regularly to friends, business associates, and family. My referrals agree with me on his ability in and out of the courtroom, and rate him a thumbs up.

The law office of Sherrod & Bernard, PC is one of the most professional and respected firms to work with. I have worked with Kenny Bernard on both personal and business dealings and I can’t think of anybody else that I’d want representing me. Hannah Field (Paralegal) and the office staff are very prompt, caring and above all, professional. They make you feel as though you’re their only client. If you simply want the best legal representation, choose Sherrod & Bernard.

The law group of Sherrod & Bernard has put my life back on track. The work of Hannah Field and her professional care and detail of finance and personal concern, excellent!! Mr. Bernard’s work effort and care for his clients is very much above and beyond. The group as a whole has made my healing possible.

I am so glad that I came to Ken Bernard when I got in a car accident. Without medical insurance, it would have been impossible for me to get the injury care I needed without my attorney. I never had to worry about how my case was going because they took care of everything. THANK YOU!

Dannyâ€™s recent accident left us feeling very confused and afraid of what would happen with Dannyâ€™s injury. When someone suggested meeting with Ken Bernard they did us a huge favor. He stood by us all the way to settlement, and really gave 110% for two very grateful senior citizens, who would call him first for any future needs.

In 2011, I was rear-ended by a driver under the influence of drugs in Douglasville, Georgia. I seriously injured my neck, back and sustained a fractured tooth. I incurred a large amount of medical bills. I contacted Ken Bernard and the legal team at Sherrod & Bernard in order to seek justice. I am very thrilled with the outcome of the case, and I highly recommend Sherrod & Bernard for anybody injured in an auto accident.

My family and I have known Ken Bernard for years, and when I needed a trial attorney on a sticky and serious civil matter, I knew whom to call. Ken and his staff stood by me through the heat of the case and never wavered. When I needed Sherrod & Bernard, Ken’s legal team was there returning phone calls, answering questions, and giving me the advice and counsel I needed. Ken Bernard promised me that he would never say what I wanted to hear, but what I needed to hear. His professionalism, integrity and reputation won out. He got me more than I ever imagined and played by the rules. Thank you Ken and the legal team at Sherrod & Bernard for all that you did and do each day. Your clients are blessed to have you on their side.

I was hurt in a car wreck in Douglasville. I contacted Ken and he was a tremendous help. My medical bills and health insurance liens were reduced by Ken’s hard work and I received a fair check as a result. I recommend Ken and his legal services if you need a lawyer for an accident.

Last year, I was rear-ended in Douglasville, Georgia. I sustained injuries to my neck and back. I needed help to receive compensation from the insurance company for my medical bills, lost time from work, and pain and suffering. In that regard, I contacted Ken Bernard at the law office of Sherrod & Bernard to assist me. Ken and his legal team helped me every way possible. I am grateful to them. They are the only law firm I would ever use. Very courteous and very helpful, was a pleasure!
