Great service
Russell Bernstein communications were very timely. He was very honest and informative. My daughter a University of Miami student got a speeding ticket for going 24 mph. Yes that is right. Russell helped a student who had never received a ticket before. We are very grateful for taking care of this for us.

Extremely compassionate and hardworking
Even after the conclusion of my case, Mr. Bernstein was there to answer my questions and concerns about another potential case. He is extremely sympathetic and makes himself available to speak with you personally.

Very Satisfied with Russell D. Bernstein as my attorney
After receiving a ticket for a driving infraction, I looked up different attorneys online and one seem to stand out, so I contacted The Law Offices of Russell D. Bernstein. I went into the office, answered a few questions, Mr. Bernstein's assistant answered all of my questions and gave me information regarding how the process would go and I gave her a copy of my ticket and Russell Bernstein and his law firm took care of the rest. Mr. Bernstein even reached out to me with a phone call after my appointment to see if I had any more questions. His office communicated with me during the process and, ultimately, my ticket was dismissed! When I received that news, I was thrilled and could not be more satisfied with the service I received from Russell D. Bernstein and his office. I highly recommend him!

He’s the best
Attorney Bernstein has represented me many times. He has always won on court. I had a string of speeding tickets a decade ago. Recently I had one for over 100mph (my pregnant wife was in crisis). As always, I had NO points on my license, NO Drivers school, NO conviction, only a court fee. I also referred my brother for a speeding ticket and my elderly mom for an accident. Both had positive outcomes, No convictions, NO points...just court fees. His fees are VERY reasonable. In fact, I think he’s a bargain! I can’t say it strongly enough...Attorney Bernstein is THE lawyer to get for motor vehicle offenses!

Great Job!
I contacted The Law Firm Offices of Russell D. Bernstein after receiving a ticket for a driving infraction. I simply texted a copy of the ticket to Russell Bernstein and his law firm took care of the rest. When I asked for an update, I received a quick response. The ticket was scheduled for a court date, at which time it was dismissed. I am very satisfied with the service and results I received and I would recommend his services in the future. Thank you.

Ethical Lawyer who fights for his clients
I have utilized Russell's services for traffic violations on several occasions. He has always been successful in the adjudication process eradicating any points from the violations.. Driving a company vehicle, this has been a very important necessary outcome. Most recently, he was able to have my case completely dismissed-- not even any court costs. I was so thrilled considering the circumstances surrounding the ticket-- it was the right thing to happen. Thanks a million Russell!

Excellent Lawyer
Russell took on my traffic case and get it dismissed. I called him again for ssuspended license once again for it dismissed no points taken away. He also went into the DMV and paid for my license to get reinstated because I was or of town. by far the best lawyer I've ever dealt with. Very honest and upfront. Fair with pricing as well. A lot less than those ticket clinics you hear about.

Saved the day!
I unfortunately received a DUI in St. Lucie County (which I would later find out is one of the worst counties to get one) back in June, 2016. The threat of jail time was high as I blew over .15; I needed an attorney to make sure that did NOT happen. I located Mr. Bernstein through a simple local Google search in my area and saw he had great reviews so I set up a consultation. I met with Mr. Bernstein at his office at a convenient time for me and he was extremely knowledgeable and honest with me about my situation. Due to the intensity of my situation and the county it was in he took the case on himself and gave me his cell phone number to contact him. After consulting with a few other attorneys (of which were significantly more expensive) I decided to hire Mr. Bernstein. He was very understanding and flexible with payment as well. Long story short, Mr. Bernstein was proactive with my case and I was able to have it settled with no jail time and still be able to drive! He is an excellent and well-trained attorney, I would recommend him hands down.

Pleased client
After receiving a "School Zone Speeding Ticket" Attorney Bernstein was able to have the ticket dismissed. I am sure this is more than I could have gotten on my own. He was recommended by the partner in the law firm where I work and I am very glad to have had him on my side. The best piece of mail I received was the letter informing me the ticket was dismissed. Which also meant no points and no court fees. For the one-time fee he charged me, it was money well spent. I never had to make an appearance as that was also included in the one-time fee. "Special Thanks to Attorney Bernstein and to his staff for an Excellent Job! I couldn't be happier!!

Emergency, what emergency??
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!

Bernstein 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!!!

Speeding ticket
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.

Excellent representation and great attorney
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.

Terrific Lawyer
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!

He Genuinely Wants to Help
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!

Satisfied Client With Service Provided
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.
