Review Russell Bernstein

  • Emergency, what emergency??

    Posted by a client

    I received a ticket for failure to move over for FHP on Sawgrass Expwy when there was a car next to me and THERE WAS NO EMERGENCY that he was stopped for, other than his lights were flashing! He berated me for 20 minutes and gave me a $169 ticket. I checked for attorneys and found Mr. Bernstein in Coral Springs with the most reviews. Contacted his office and had no issues since: his paralegals were courteous, professional and discrete. Everything was handled extremely well, I did not have to make a court appearance for any of it and the case was dismissed for a very low fee!
    Thank you very much, you do a great public service!

  • My first speeding ticket EVER

    Last year, I received my first speeding ticket, after 35 years of driving. My boss recomended Russell, so I called him. He was very helpful and personable. He charged a fraction of the cost of the ticket. He infomed me that i would get letters from the court, but i should ignore them and trust him. It wasn't easy to ignore the letters, but i did, and after a few months i got a letter from him stating the charges had been dismissed. I recently got a red-light camera ticket. He advised me that it may be dismissed without a fight, so i should "wait and see ". If i receive a letter from the court, then i should call him. I really appreciate his honesty~ he could have asked for money up front, but didn't want me to pay if it wasn't necessary.. I highly recommend him!

  • Horrible!

    Russell D. Bernstein in South FL is the WORST Traffic Ticket Attorney out there. He charged me a whopping $99 and then sent me a letter in the mail stating that I owed ANOTHER $206 to the courthouse. Meanwhile, my ticket was for only $266. Now, I'm stuck paying $305. I would've been better off paying the ticket myself, since he did absolutely nothing and made money off of me. Russell Bernstein didn't even have the common courtesy to contact me directly to notify me of this outcome.

    I will never use him again. I should've heeded to the warnings of the other poor reviews that were written about him online. He is a money-taker! My ticket should have been easily wiped off. I rarely ever get a ticket. My last one was when I was in high school and I'm now 36. STAY AWAY or you too will be sorry, just like me.

    Russell David Bernstein’s response: “You know, these types of reviews never cease to amaze me. Firstly, it's interesting that somebody would call $99.00 a "whopping" attorney's fee. Based upon where the ticket was issued and any costs absorbed by my office, I would hardly find $99.00 to be whopping. And believe me, I value every single dollar that a client pays to my law firm. I am sorry but I need to try and make a living as well. It was a flat $99.00 fee. Now, more importantly on to the result of the case, The client stated that the ticket itself was $266.00. The court assessed a court cost of $206.00. According to my math, the court cost was $60.00 LESS than the citation itself. As a reminder, I am not the Judge or Traffic Magistrate and do not impose court costs on my clients, and needless to say, these costs do not go to me, they go to the Clerk of Court. If the client wanted to pay the ticket herself and accept the 4 points put on her license and deal with those consequences, she certainly could have. Every client is noticed in writing at the outset of the case that court costs, if any, are additional and are to be paid by the client directly to the Clerk of Court. The true result that the client refuses to see was NO POINTS, NO CONVICTION, NO COURT APPEARANCES BY THE CLIENT, AND A COURT COST LESS THAN THE PRICE OF THE CITATION. Therefore, to say nothing was done is an ignorant statement and an absolute joke. As far as notifying the client is concerned, every client is notified in writing by my office, which is the most professional way to provide a result. As far as having common courtesy, this client could have practiced what she preached and called my office at any time. And by the way, my cell phone is also on my website, which is 954-652-2101, and you can feel free to call me anytime you wish, as I am standing by. Instead of slandering me and posting this, you could have given me the courtesy of a phone call. As far as never using me again, that is completely your choice. As far as any other poor reviews are concerned, if there are any, I have answered and explained just about all of them. In addition, I am fortunate enough to have an awesome client base since 1997, and I respect and work hard for each and every one of them. As a result, my reviews have been amazing and I thank my phenomenal client base for that. Respectfully submitted by, Russell D. Bernstein, Esq. Attorney at Law”

    Mr. Bernstein!! is one of the most efficient and effective attorneys I have ever dealt with. I am 68 years old in the real estate business and have been in business for over 47 years. I know good attorneys when I meet them and work with them. Mr. Bernstein handled my cases for traffic violations in the most effective manner with ease and success. He is a pleasure to deal with. His office staff is a pleasure to deal with. I am so very grateful that I was able to meet Mr. Bernstein and to work with him. It was a most pleasant experience. I would recommend this attorney to anyone with any type of criminal or traffic issues that need to be resolved. He gets the job done!!!

    I made one phone call to Mr. Bernstein and he took care of everything after that. The best part was when I got a letter from him stating that my case had been dismissed, no points, no fines.

    I had a serious DUI case in which I was brand new to the area, a friend recommended him and I have to say I have not been disappointed. I got minimal probation and normal fines for the charge. He will answer any questions you have, always available, and a true advocate for his clients.

    Overall, I would highly recommend him to anyone one who needs representation; from start to finish I am very happy and not only did he do well as an attorney but gave me peace of mind. Great recommendation.

    Russell Bernstein defended my wife for a traffic infraction. Not only did he get the ticket dismissed but NO COURT COSTS! Amazing! This was the first time of ten tickets between my wife and myself, we didn't have to pay those crooks, court costs. He's the best!

    I contacted attorney Russell D. Bernstein after my Florida license was revoked for having too many tickets when I lived in another state. I was confused, because these tickets were paid over 5 years ago and my license from the previous state was in good standing when I moved to Florida. Although I could not hire Mr. Bernstein, since this was not a Florida legal matter, he still provided advice on what I needed to do to resolve this issue. I REALLY appreciate the time he took to help me. If you have a traffic issue in South Florida, HIRE HIM!

    Through my research I came across Mr. Bernstein service advertisement. He was retained on behalf of my brother who was involved in an accident. I am very, very pleased with the end results of the case regarding the ticket which was issued and was "dismissed". He provide us both with professional, prompt and courteous service. He was retained April 9th and the ticket was resolved May 2nd . I understand that every case is different and I would use his service again if there is ever a need. His contact information I have already provided to other friends and family. Again, thank you for your very professional service.

    Mr. Bernstein was very proactive with my case and proved to be an excellent choice. Why pay an enormously-priced ticket and risk your driving record when you can have a pro defend you? Mr. Bernstein was efficient, cordial and he took care of everything over the phone AND got my case dismissed in court. Best $ I have ever spent! Thank you very much.
