About Stephen

Learn Stephen’s areas of practice.

Before starting Bernhardt Law, I was a prosecutor for nearly six years.  I left the State Attorney's Office to become the lead litigation attorney for a large civil law firm.  At Bernhardt Law, I defend your rights with vast knowledge of how the other side operates.   

Most importantly, I represent every client the way I would want to be represented - with professionalism, attention to detail, and integrity.

Kind, Caring, Efficient. A+
Stephen was great, he helped me understand my case, he worked with me, and I can honestly say I feel that he cared about me and my case.

Gets the job done!
Straight forward and very efficient. This is probably the first time I could ever say I had no problems dealing with a lawyer. In fact, it was shockingly pleasant and handled faster than I thought possible. Can’t go wrong here.

Highly recommend!
One of the best attorneys I have ever worked with, and I have seen my share of attorneys, believe me. Mr. Bernhardt was very attentive, sensitive to my concerns and questions, enthusiastic about resolving the case in my favor, and overall went out of his way to help me in my legal battle. He always returned my phone calls almost immediately, although most of the time he would just pick up the phone. Thanks to Mr. Bernhardt's knowledge and skills, my case and all charges against me were dismissed. He is the ONLY lawyer i would go to for help from now on.

Outstanding representation
I was involved in a contract dispute with a former employer. Steve was very helpful and effective throughout the negotiations. He does a great job explaining different paths to pursue and was always responded quickly to any concerns I had. He was very knowledgeable and I will continue going to him with any legal help I may need in the future.

Highly recommend
When looking for a lawyer, I wanted someone who I felt truly cared, who was direct, professional, knowledgeable about what I needed, and gave results in a timely manner. Stephen absolutely delivered. He really went beyond what I had expected and even worked with me on payment. If your looking for someone to work hard for what you need, I highly recommend Stephen, and will definitely use him again.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Steve and I have known each other since we both became lawyers. At the time, we were both prosecutors and tried many cases together. He is great trial attorney and having spent many years as a prosecutor, he understands the nuances of what it takes to defend the accused and more importantly, he puts the time in. You are in good hands."

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"As I criminal defense lawyer, I had the chance to get to know Stephen as a prosecutor. He was a very good prosecutor who always handled his cases professionally and with integrity. Now that he has shifted to a different area of law, I have no doubt that his clients are well-served."
