Bernard represented me on my worker’s compensation case. He was professional, attentive, and informative on all aspects of my case. I would recommend him to anyone for any legal needs. His office staff was also on top of everything. I appreciate everything they have done for me and my family.

Outstanding law firm
I was initially apprehensive about seeking legal counsel after getting hit by a distracted driver this past spring. A friend recommended we give Bernard Nomberg a call just to learn about the legal process. We had not been on the phone with Bernard for more than a minute before we knew we had made the right decision. He was knowledgeable and took the time to explain each step of the process. Anytime Bernard called to check on us or give an update, it felt like a family member was calling to check in. The Nomberg Law Firm excels at helping people because they truly care about each client. Everything was handled in an organized, timely manner and I never felt confused by any step of the process. I will proudly wear my Nomberg Law Firm cap and recommend them to everyone! Shout to Alexis for her professionalism and hard work. Like Bernard, she is an excellent communicator and very personable.

Workman comp case.
During the process of my case. Mr.Nomberg made sure that I understand the process of how workman comp. Case are decided. He would send me video to watch and email about them also. Him and his firm always stayed in touch with with about my health issues and progress. Mr. Nomberg always had my best interest in this case at heart. I appreciate all the talks we had about life and going forward after my case was resolved.

Great Law Firm
I was very nervous about seeking a lawyer about my workers comp case...but after speaking to, and meeting Bernard he assured me that everything would just fine. Benard and his team did a great job for me, and I would recommend The Normberg Law Firm to any and everyone for their workers comp needs.

Thanks Bernard
Bernard represented me on my disability claim in which I was found favorable. I have to say I was somewhat nervous at first about going to my hearing. After talking to Bernard about the process all those fears went away. He did an awesome job. Nomberg law firm also has a YouTube channel that answered a lot of questions for me without me having to constantly call Bernard. The firm was with me all the way in the process and kept me updated. There assistant Emily is so awesome and I would like to thank her also. This is one of two representations that these guys helped me and I am very happy with the outcome of both. I highly recommend Bernard along with the rest of The Nomberg law firm. Thanks Bernard

Workman’s comp injury
Bernard Nomberg is not only a lawyer. He was there when I was about to give up. Very compassionate, always there, and always let me know that there was going to be a light at the end of the tunnel. He would return my Alka after office hours if I needed, and that shows that he really cared about his clients. He not only settled my case, but we went over the options together. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone that is in need of an attorney.
