About me

Alex Berman has represented injured workers exclusively for more than 30 years and has recovered millions of dollars for his clients. Alex believes that every injured worker deserves to know his or her legal rights in order to receive fair compensation under the law.


Alex decided years ago that general practice law firms were not providing the very best legal representation for injured workers. As the founding member of the law firm, he has set the standard for excellence in workers compensation law. Alex always makes himself available to speak with clients and takes whatever time is needed to answer all of their questions. He is known for being a hard working, caring lawyer who will not accept clients being mistreated by the insurance companies that are supposed to protect them.


Notable Michigan workers compensation cases:


  • Handled multiple workers compensation claims for employees who had injuries or disabilities from two large automotive suppliers which closed their plants. Each of the more than 25 clients succeeded in receiving significant settlements.

  • Successfully won benefits for a client who became paralyzed after the insurance carrier refused to pay workers compensation. To date, she has received more than $1 million in benefits.

  • Received one of the largest workers compensation settlements in Michigan, for a client who lost her arm in an industrial accident.

    Many of my auto accident cases involve Workers Compensation issues. I have worked with over a dozen workers compensation lawyers in Michigan, and Alex Berman is by far the best. He is responsive, cares for his clients and gets them excellent results.

  • Steven M. Gursten

    I’ve worked with dozens of workers comp lawyers over the last 15 years. Its difficult to find one like Alex – a bright exception who promptly returns calls and develops strong client relationships. He’s not only tops in his field but he is a great listener and truly works to protect injured workers. I highly recommend Alex.
