Excellent lawyer! Highly recommend
I cannot say enough positive things about Joel Bernier. For starters, he truly made me feel like I was his only client, always answered my questions/concerns, and was always there for me. Joel was a rock in a storm for me…Always- calm, collective, and professional when I was not. He constantly played defense handling my divorce case because of me, not him. Despite not giving Joel any power moves, the man was able to negotiate and make some deals happen when I felt the situation was hopeless. Joel is a good person who operates with integrity. I highly recommend Joel Bernier!
