I've practiced criminal law since 1981 as a State Attorney, Public Defender, Regional Conflict Counsel and now in private practice. At the Public Defenders I held positions as Chief of the Felony Division and Chief of the Capital Trial Division (Homicide). In addition to trial work, I undertake Appeals and Post-Conviction Motions. No case is too big or too small as I have handled DUI's and Retail Theft and everything in between to First Degree Murder and Federal Drug Cases. Prior to Law School I attended Pharmacy School and I am still a Licensed Registered Pharmacist. This background assists me in effectively addressing complex scientific issues that routinely occur in criminal cases.

Fantastic Lawyer
Randy Bermam saved my life, he was able to convince the Judge and DA to put me on probation rather then a long prison sentence. He kept me informed and always answered my phone calls and is still helpful if i call him.

Excellent Lawyer
I have worked with Randall Berman on several cases and have referred him to several of my clients. He has always handled each case with extreme efficiency and care. I will consult with him again on future cases, as well as continue to refer him to others.

I couldn't have asked for better representation.
I missed a court date and had warrant out for my arrest. Randy Berman was a big help to me throughout the whole thing. I really felt like he was there for me. During my consultation he told me exactly what to expect and what the best way to proceed would be. He was never pushy (the way I found some lawyers to be) and was up-front about all fees and possible court costs (there were none). He took all nervousness and guess work out of the situation and got the whole case dismissed. He even got my license suspension dismissed so I didn't have to pay the fees. I even ended up accidentally missing that hearing and he still got it done without me being there. Helpful, up-front , pleasant, and experienced. If I need a lawyer again, He's my guy.

Excellent Lawyer
After interviewing a couple of attorney's I am very glad we choose Mr. Berman to represent my son. My son had a couple of pending charges and Randy was very knowledgable and competent in handling each one. He always gave my son good advice and was always available to answer any questions. The fact that he picked up his phone immediately and returned messages right away is a definite plus for any lawyer. We are very pleased with the outcome of my sons case and highly recommend him as an attorney.

Amazing lawyer!!
Mr. Berman is an amazing lawyer! I had a DUI charge. I was driving with no head lights, I refused the breath test and I failed all the road side test. I was very nervous and scared that I would get convicted of a DUI and it effecting my future. Mr. Berman always answers his phone and that is a definite plus! He knows what he is doing and is amazing at trial!! Because of him the jury found me not guilty... I definitley recommend him to be your lawyer.

A lawyer you can trust
Mr Berman knows the law, he has experience and confidence that shows in his ability to communicate and win over a jury. He got me NOT QUILTY verdict on a DUI charge, the jury was out five minuets.

Atty couldn't give advice because my question was out of his area of law expertise. In the end, I didn't get any helpful information.
