About me

Mr. Berg graduated from Florida State University in 1984 with a Bachelors Degree in Finance. After a successful career as a small businessman, he went on to earn his Law Degree (J.D.), with honors, from the Florida State University College of Law in 1991. While in law school, Mr. Berg was honored to have been awarded an internship with then Chief Justice Raymond Ehrlich of the Florida Supreme Court. He is a lifelong resident of St. Lucie County and is proud to have raised his family there. Mr. Berg is well connected throughout the Treasure Coast in professional and community organizations and routinely handles cases in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee, and Brevard counties.

Fewer than 1% of U.S. lawyers are members) and SuperLawyers of Florida (The Super Lawyersdesignation is based upon the results of independent research performed by Law & Politics, including peer review and professional achievement. Only five percent of Florida lawyers are named Super Lawyers).


He is currently Chairman of the Business Litigation Certification Committee of the Florida Bar, a member of the Trial Lawyers Section of the Florida Bar, the Litigation Section and Forum on the Construction Industry of the American Bar Association, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, St. Lucie County Bar Association and is the Past President of the Indian River County Bar Association. Mr. Berg served on the Statewide Judicial Nominating Committee for Judges of Compensation Claims from 1994-2000 and served as its Chairman in 1998. He also served on the Florida Bar Judicial Nominating Procedures Committee from 2000 to 2004. 


Mr. Berg is admitted to practice in all Florida State Courts as well as in all of the United States Federal District Courts in Florida.  His practice is concentrated on civil litigation with an emphasis on wrongful death and serious injury, as well as complex civil business and construction litigation cases.  He has tried numerous jury and non-jury cases for his clients including wrongful death, brain injury, shareholders derivative actions and construction related disputes.

    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.
