I am here to answer your questions. I want to earn your trust.  Hiring an attorney is never an enjoyable process and I appreciate the value of your hard earned money.   . 

I was born and raised in northern Kentucky and Kentucky is where I learned the value of hard work and compassion. I have resided in southwest Florida for more than 10 years and Naples is now where I call home.

I decided I wanted to become an attorney to help people like my parents and family who often times found legal representation out of the reach.  My dad is a retired steel foundry laborer who would come home from work beat up, sometimes burned, and tired. My mother also worked to provide for me and my brother. My parents still reside in Kentucky and have been married since 1972. I have a younger brother who works in the HVAC industry and he has also been a very successful high school football coach in Kentucky. I knew at an early age that I wanted to earn my living helping working people and families like my own. I am very proud to say that I am a first generation attorney.

I graduated from Campbell County High School, Northern Kentucky University, and then attended law school at Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan where I earned my Juris Doctorate. While attending law school, I got my first courtroom experience working for the late Robert Jacobs as a Certified Legal Intern in the Public Defender's Office in Fort Myers, Florida. My past experiences have shaped how I view the world today and I am extremely proud of my blue collar roots.

I have had the fortune to have worked for exemplary law firms. I gained a wealth of knowledge and experience while working in a support capacity for Associates and Bruce L. Scheiner, a top personal injury firm in Fort Myers, Florida. I then went to work in Naples, Florida for Scott Martin Roth and Associates, as my heart was drawing me back the criminal defense world and the rewarding work of family law. While working with Scott, I personally represented individuals in all types of family law and criminal defense matters.

In 2012, I opened up my own law practice in Naples, Florida; where the focus of the practice was divorce, child custody matters, and criminal defense.   

I have taken many cases from initial phone call to trial.  I am proud of the work I have done for my clients.   

I still provide legal representation to those who find themselves in the darkest and most stressful times of their life. Whether it be divorce, child custody issues, DUI, drug possession or other general areas of the law. I am proud to be able to work for working people.

I also enjoyed a rewarding experiencing teaching in the criminal justice and legal studies departments at Southwest Florida College. In my free time, I enjoy kayak fishing and I have remained a lifelong Cincinnati Reds and Bengals fan. I reside in Naples, Florida and I am licensed to practice law in both Kentucky and Florida.

Highly Recommended
Thank you Ken, you are absolutely excellent. I couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. Ken has integrity, patience, respectable self control and is diligent. His deliverance is respectful as he covers imperative facts professionally and tactfully. Ken’s communication skills are incredibly valuable as well as his knowledge and ability to apply both, fairly.

Divorce Phone Consultation -
For only a phone consultation, Mr. Turner freely provided relevant insights and options to my specifics that would matter to my best interest. Though my fingers are crossed that I don't need to be in his local area, I am convinced he would do well advocating for the best possible outcome for me if I'm required to be there. Without hesitation he has my full confidence to successfully have my back. Mr. Turner, thank you for your time and great sense of direction. Barbara in N. Florida

Ken Turner is the way to go
My case was a dissolution of marriage where my ex wife was not only trying to have me pay for her credit card debt but she also wanted full custody of the kids and even removed them against my will. Ken immediately filed a motion of contempt and helped me win my kids back. He fought and presented accurate evidence which at the end made me one of the very few fathers to win a case regarding children.

Trustworthy, Hardworking and Cool Headed
I hired Ken to handle a very messy domestic violence injunction, eviction of a spouse and divorce with children. This was a vehemently contested separation and was not easy. Ken exercised a great deal of patience and wisdom and gave me excellent advice and attention. Beyond our control, the courts dragged on for over 2 years and went through many changes, ultimately ending with a final order that was fair and gave me everything I was asking. I couldn't have found better or more qualified counsel and will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone facing divorce or family law issues. Ken handled my case and everyone involved with class and respect, I was proud to be represented by him.

Excellent Lawyer
Divorce is hell! Not something I really like or believe in but it came to a point in time , that was irreversible . I looked and searched the internet for a lawyer talked to many secretary's but Ken personally took my call. He set up a free consultation , we actually met at a Starbucks that was closer location to both of us( very appreciated ). We talked he told me the price and it was reasonable without a doubt!!! Ken i could see was a humble guy but also I could see in him a strength that if things were to get messy he would be fierce and would protect my rights as a Person and a Father!!! He gave me key advise that helped my decision process through it all also! I really have to thank Ken Turner and Bergermann Accociates because they took the steps fast and easy for my Daughters and I lives to move on , I Have primary custody of my Youngest Daughter and oldest is now age of Adult, consented to leave state with a final judgement through the courts Because of their help!!! Thank you Ken , God Bless you!!! if I were to give any tips to any others going through a problem Do Not waste your time hiring a paralegal or doing it yourself!! It's to much stress ! Hire Ken and let them do the stress work for you!! Sincerely Robert

Compassionate and Knowledgeable Lawyer
I highly recommend Ken Turner for your legal needs. He is a very compassionate and knowledgeable attorney who considers the needs of his clients. He represented me in my divorce, and he fought to make sure I received a fair settlement. He took the time to explain all options to me and made sure I understood what was happening every step of the way. He was patient and understanding of what I wanted in my divorce. Going through a divorce can be stressful, but with Ken Turner in your corner you can be reassured that you will get a fair deal. He puts 100% of his effort into your case from start to finish.

Helpful with my LLC
Ken Turner was able to, not only, to explain the benefits and process of applying for an LLC, he was able to help me obtain one for my small business. He was very knowledgeable about the licensing procedure from start to finish. I would recommend his services to anyone starting a small business, or looking to protect a company they have already started!!

Charges Dismissed
Mr. Turner represented me in a misdemeanor charge. He got the charges dropped. He was able to prove that the officer had profiled me and had no real probable cause to pull me over. I highly recommend Mr. Turner.

So thankful I found the Bergermann Law Firm!
I sought out Ken to help me with a legal case with my ex husband. I had never had to consult with a lawyer before. Ken was so nice and put me at ease. He helped me understand how the legal system would work concerning my case. He and the staff at Bergermann Law Firm were all very helpful and readily available for my questions. He was fair in every way and made sure I knew what was going on while not doing anything unnecessary so as to keep my cost low as I was on a slimmer budget. I can't thank them enough for helping me through such a difficult time in my life.

Great divorce lawyer
Ken divorced me from my miserable no good husband and brought much peace into my life. He is an excellent attorney and I will use him again for my next divorce. He is a good person and always returned my calls and answered all my questions and alleviated much stress from the whole process.
