About me


I  received an undergraduate degree in history from Vanderbilt University in 1990, where I played football on a full athletic scholarship. I then graduated from Jones School of Law in 1994.


I have been an  attorney since 1995. Concentrating in civil litigation, most of my practice has focused on a plaintiff's litigation practice which includes representation in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death, workers' compensation, insurance and business torts and employment litigation.


I am currently a member of the Alabama State Bar Association, Alabama State Bar: Workers' Compensation Section, Alabama Association for Justice, and the Birmingham Bar Association. I am admitted to practice in the United States District Courts, Northern, Middle and Southern Districts of Alabama, and in the 11th Circuit, United States Court of Appeals. 


I am very proud to have earned an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell's peer-review rating. An AV rating is Martindale's highest possible peer review rating. Peer review ratings attest to a lawyer's legal ability and professional ethics and reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and judiciary.


I also have recently served on several local foundation boards including the Board of Directors for Temple Beth-El and the Birmingham Jewish Foundation.

    Bernard's vast experience in workers' compensation law provides his clients with a real advantage. As an employment attorney myself, I have consulted with him from time to time and his insight is always valuable. Bernard's success and professionalism has earned the respect of plaintiffs' and defense lawyers alike.
