Well I was seeking a lawyer to get rid of two warrants that I had no idea what the charges were for. I called multiple attorneys that day. Most didn't even want to investigate my case without me giving them the retainer fee. Mr.Berne went above and beyond my expectations. He got all my charges dropped without even having to attend court nor did I have to pay my 10,000 dollar bond. He is truly amazing and I would recommend him to anyone with legal trouble. Thanks again Steven you the man!!!!

As difficult as it is to deal with consequences to such circumstances along with options to pick and chose attorney, also could be overwhelming with too much of information We received through the internet. In this scenario my DUI case that got dragged to couple of years, which I happen to moved to different state for personal reason. I found Steven Berne is very responsive, knowledgable and experienced.

"I went to trial in 2007, and Steven was my attorney, I had no money for legal representation, but out of the kindness of his heart Steven decide to stand my mom and me. My mother was my co-defendent, and even thow he did not represent her during our trial he did work with her lawyer to get time off of her sentence. The infamous Jack T. Camp was our judge, now indicted. During the entire trial Steven faught to get my case thrown out of court because of lack of evidence. This corrupt judge would not allow the case to be thrown out of court, even thow almost every witness that took the stand on the governments behalf could not identify me. Steven and the other defense lawyers ate the governments people for lunch. At one point during the trial the corrupt judge Jack T Camp told Steven to tone it down while going after the governments main witness while she was on the witness stand. The entire court knew that she was lying, and Steven went after her like a lion stalking his prey. Even thow I was sentenced to 37 months and my mom received 108 months. Steven faught for us and was nothing less than a gentleman. I believe if it wasn't for this one sided corrupt Judge leaning toward the government in his unfair stance against minorites. The outcome at the trial may have been very different. Steven would always treat my mom and me with respect. His compassion and his kindness was a compliment to his professional demeanor inside of the court room and outside of the court room. One of the greatest things about Mr. Berne is that you can call him anytime day or night and he'll do what he can to try and help you. We need more lawyers that care not just about winning but we need more lawyers to care about the people. I would recommend Mr. Berne as a great lawyer.

I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Berne and I have represented co-defendants in several cases. I have always been impressed with Mr. Berne's thorough preparation, his commitment to his clients, and his effectiveness as a courtroom litigator. He has prevailed in cases that would have been lost without a skilled attorney.

Steve is a great defense lawyer. I have gone to him for advice and guidance with clients, he always knows the right assistance to give. Any client would be in great hands and know they are getting a strong defense with Steve.
