Best choice
Bonnie went above and beyond with my messy divorce. Any time I had a question she responded quickly and informatively. Beyond business hours she was there to help, completely exceeding my expectations. Whether it was a small question or a long term plan, she was readily available and never once left me hanging. Not only did I find her highly intelligent and strategic, I found her to be a deeply genuine good soul, which is a rare gem to find in this field. Honest, reliable, informative, and hard hitting are the first words that come to my mind when describing her. I could not have gone through some of the darkest parts of my life without her incredible aid.

Bonnie & Her Staff Are Amazing!
Bonnie and her staff are amazing ! I searched out several firms before landing in her office. Immediately I knew I would hire her to help me with my divorce. My divorce was an extremely hard case. Not the " normal dissolution " , Bonnie and her staff went well above and beyond to see that I was completely informed of my rights, the law , and what to expect as everything unfolded. Big kudos to Diane her paralegal . She was over the top amazing . And Misty , her assistant ... an attorney in the making . The professionalism was exceptional. I watched in court a highly experienced well organized attorney take charge and ultimately win my case . 2 days in court,I was extremely stressed, she never hesitated to go above and beyond to check on me making sure all was well even after my case was,over and closed. I am happy to say Ms. Berns is a 5 star attorney and I highly recommend her to anyone who is in need . I'm very happy I did :)

One of a kind
After divorcing, my children were being kept from me despite what the final judgement outlined for time sharing. This was a terrible situation in many ways for everyone. I can't explain how painful and unfair it feels to have this happen to you.. I didn't know my rights or even what to do. As fate would have it, I found Attorney Berns and scheduled a meeting. We reviewed my final judgement together and I immediately knew that I found someone who actually wanted to help me. Attorney Berns really believes in justice. The staff at her office are outstanding, experienced and well organized....especially Cindy, the best paralegal I have ever met. I was always informed and could get answers quickly. If necessary, I could reach Attorney Berns at any time day or night via her cell phone. If you need Family Law help, this Attorney is the best. If you are a Dad or a Mom facing parental alienation Attorney Berns will help you and knows exactly what to do. I am very thankful for the help

Great attorney with wonderful workers
I used Bonnie berns for a matter I had, I spoke with I believe melissa, she was exceptionally helpful and kind to me during my case. The paralegal handling my case, Cindy was also helpful always willing totalk to me about my case when I wanted to know what was happening and Bonnie always would have time to speak with me. I would highly recommend Bonnie to anyone she knows exactly what she is doing and hires capable kind and smart staff to work for her office. Everyone I spoke with was always cheerful and caring. The receptionist scheduled an appointment for me quickly and made me feel like I was welcome when I walked in.

Zealousness and Professionalism
It is always a challange to zealously represent the client and maintain professionalism. I have litigated opposite this attorney and felt that she acheived both. She was sharp on the law that was relevant in that case. I highly recommend her in ability and professionalism
Response from Bonnie Berns May 18, 2012
As an attorney I have worked with Bonnie Berns for over ten years co-counseling primarily employment cases. Attroney Berns has excellent insight as to what a case is potentially worth and is a determined advocate in seeking the value of the case from defendant employers or insurance companies. Ms. Berns promptly returns calls. She handles legal issues with competence. She maintains cordial relations with her clients. She inspires confidence during difficult litigation. I would not hesitate to recommend attorney Berns based upon her competence, determination and experience.

Fabulous personal injury attorney who convinced two insurance companies to settle for policy limits
I was involved in a very serous automobile accident. Bonnie did an amazing job with my case. She immediately sent her staff to photograph the cars, which were both totaled. Following consderable medical treatment, she was able to convince two different insurance companies (the other driver's policy and my own policy under the uninsured provision of the policy) to settle for the policy limits based solely on extremely detailed letters with multiple attachments. I have recommended her to all of my friends. She is also very personable and a pleasure to work with.
