DISMISSED ALL CHARGES INCLUDING A FELONY!
Wow! Where do I begin.. In order to give context to this exemplary of a lawyer let my provide you some context in my search for a lawyer.. One of the lawyers I spoke to made me feel as if I should be grateful he would even except my case.. Another lawyer quoted me $40,000-$60,000 (if you could have saw my face) When Alex Berger accepted my case I immediately felt at ease.. I could hear him typing as he asked me what happened, he asked me many questions which made me feel like he really cared to hear my side of the story. I didn’t feel “guilty until proven innocent” I was illegally and wrongfully arrested and charged with two crimes that I did not commit that had a HUGE impact on my life in less than a month that all of this nightmare occurred; one of them being a FELONY. Alex Berger and Gavin kept me informed the entire way. Ensuring that I knew exactly what was going on and what to expect. They did not sugar coat anything. This case didn’t even make it to the Preliminary Examination hearing before I was DISMISSED OF ALL CHARGES. His price is extremely reasonable considering the amount of work that is put in, which the results show. And to top it off, he waived the remaining balanced I owe in order to pursue a lawsuit for my civil rights being violated FREE OF CHARGE. EXEMPLARY lawyer, HIGHLY RECOMMEND! Thank you Alex and Gavin for protecting my rights and clearing my name in this nightmare of a situation where two overzealous police officers who felt they were above the law and misused their positions of power and authority to inadvertently attempt to destroy an innocent person’s life. Words cannot express enough how grateful I am. Thank you!

Mr. Berger did a great job
Mr. Berger took what would have been a career ending case and helped mitigate it down to a simple misdemeanor. It was a good decision to hire him, and I would recommend him to anyone facing legal issues.

Weapons charges dismissed
I hired Alex to represent me and it was a great decision. He was able to convince the court to dismiss all charges against me. He was communicative in a manner that was confident, clear, and concise. The possible outcomes were explained along with his own strategy and why he chose that strategy. I recommend him fully.

Best Criminal Defense in Marquette County
There is a reason Alex has a perfect 5-star rating on Google (as of April 2024) The level of professionalism, attention to detail, kindness and knowledge of the law stand above and beyond the competition. The pricing was very straight-forward and reasonable too. During an extremely stressful and anxiety-ridden time, Alex and his paralegal Gavin went out of their way to make sure I understood every process and detail in my case. I cannot recommend them enough. Job well done Mr. Berger and Mr. Guidance. (Someone else commented on your style, and I have to agree completely. You always looked sharp and had a hell of suit on)

Can’t thank Mr. Berger enough!!
From the first time speaking with Alex, I knew he wanted to fight for me. His confidence in our talks and meetings helped reassure me that he was doing everything in his power to help me. And seeing him in action was absolutely incredible! He made every court appearance “his show”, and put on a masterclass of proving my rights had been violated.

Best lawyer around
Mr Berger went above and beyond to take care of my case. It was an older case that he had to do a lot of digging to get to the bottom of it. He and his team went above my expectations and handled everything. He got all charges against me dropped without prejudice. I have nothing but high praise for him and his team.

Alex treated our case as if it was his only priority. Understanding our inexperience with the legal system, Alex patiently and thoroughly answered our questions and listened to our concerns with an empathetic ear. He and Gavin went out of their way to respond to phone calls/email from us within the same day we reached out. While maintaining complete professionalism, this team made us feel like part of a family, and helped make a stressful and scary situation surmountable.

Excellent services!
Alex Berger has provided the best representation we could ever expect in my brother’s case for a misdemeanor charge. Alex is very diligent and attentive, he responded to all our inquiries quickly and efficiently. He established a clear communication with us from the very beginning and made sure my brother understood each step of the process. It seems that Alex truly cares about his clients, which really impressed us. When an issue not directly related to the case arose, he kindly offered to help and followed up to make sure it’s resolved. Another great thing is that Alex charges the most reasonable fees for his services. Couldn’t recommend this lawyer enough!

Outstanding defense
Alex is a very savvy, knowledgeable attorney who represented me against a false accusation. He helped me with the process step by step, and he provided realistic expectations throughout. He was very easy to communicate with, and returned messages promptly. He struck me as a very ethical person, and demonstrated this throughout. He helped me understand the law related to my situation, and I would recommend him without reservation to anyone needing a defense attorney.
