Paul Berg is a Credit to His Profession
Attorney Paul Berg in Vero Beach was recommended to us by several other attorneys in different fields of expertise. They said he was knowledgeable, effective, and an excellent trial lawyer. We are writing this review of his services because he exceeded these qualities in every way. First and foremost, Paul Berg is a nice person. He is kind, thoughtful, and generous with his time and expertise. We were delighted to discover that he is also insightful, perceptive, and discerning with legal tactics. Paul gave us all of the information that we needed and answered every question thoroughly as we pursued our case. He returned phone calls promptly, arranged his schedule to fit us in (even when he was busy), and kept us apprised of every new development throughout our association. We have benefited immensely by having an attorney who is a diplomatic yet formidable negotiator and an astute representative of our best interests throughout the arduous trial preparation process. Much to our benefit, Paul worked diligently on legal strategy for our case, consistently relieved our concerns by answering our questions comprehensively, and communicated regularly with us, along with his highly competent assistant, Josephine Graney. Paul Berg’s level of understanding is unsurpassed. It is obvious upon first meeting Paul that he is highly intelligent, retains great comprehension skills, and explains matters without the normal “legalese” explanations. Paul doesn’t avoid uncomfortable questions at all—he addresses them directly with much erudition. Moreover, he transcends these skills when it comes to elucidating the facts, explaining various choices of action, clarifying reasonable solutions and illuminating probable outcomes. We were always exceptionally pleased after meetings with Paul, because his ability to succinctly convey the facts, to address all relevant issues and give his thorough professional analysis was invaluable to our case and also our peace of mind. It is noteworthy to mention that we received the best possible settlement in our case predominantly because of Paul’s perseverance and legal approach. Paul Berg is a credit to his profession…he truly cares about people.

"I endorse this lawyer's work. Mr. Berg and I have been co-counsel in a couple of cases and have been adversary counsel as well. I have found Mr. Berg to be diligent, professional and serious regarding the representation of his clients. I would be pleased to work with him again and if we were again on opposite sides I know his client would have very qualified counsel."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 01
Relationship: Co-worker
"It is my distinct honor and pleasure to recommend my partner, Paul Berg. Paul is the only lawyer I know who took and passed both the civil trial and business litigation certification exam in the same year. He is board certified by the Florida bar as both a civil trial lawyer and a business trial lawyer. In the areas of serious injury, wrongful death and business and construction litigation, there is no one more qualified, more professional and more dedicated than Paul. I trust Paul implicitly not only with my clients, but with my entire practice. Paul is truly a "lawyer's lawyer". He is the best of the best."
