Alison Bermant represented me in a case that was requiring me to appear in court to clear charges from a traffic ticket issued in my name 4 years prior. The ticket had gone to collections, and I was living out of state and couldn't appear in court. Ms. Bermant did an extraordinary job from start to finish with my case! She was very helpful during the initial phone consultation, as she laid out a clear plan of action for us to pursue. She was attentive to the situation, and made me feel entirely listened to regarding the matter at hand. She was always prompt and communicative during the petitioning process, sending me correspondence at every juncture, and letting me know what would be expected of me. She gathered the appropriate documents from me, and handled the court processions on her own. At every point along the way, I felt that my case was being handled with care, attention, and professionalism. At no point did I need to check in to see how things were going, as Ms. Bermant was consistently proactive in contacting me to inform me of the legal happenings. At the resolution of the case (which was an ideal resolution all things considered), Ms. Bermant sent me all the necessary documentation and explained to me the details of the legal decisions. Considering the legal outcome and the professional treatment I received, I'd say the legal fees were more than fair.
This was shaping up to be a very frustrating and costly legal issue at the beginning, and I'm very fortunate I was able to get in contact with Ms. Bermant to represent me in this case. Not only did the case get resolved favorably and quickly, but also the case was handled with professional and responsible attention. It was obviously great that a positive legal decision was reached, but it was even better that I was treated with respect and courtesy by Ms. Bermant all along the way. If you're in need of legal representation and want to be received with attentive professionalism, I would highly recommend seeking out Ms. Bermant!

Alison Bermant represented me in 2014. She is an excellent attourney, one you want on your side. She is extremely knowledgable, communicates clearly and concisely with you in a timely manner, works diligently to achieve the best outcome, and shows that she truly cares about you as a client. I was more than happy with the outcome of my case. I would highly recommend her.

Alison was very pleasant and informative and spent a long time on my initial call to her. My wife and I were very comfortable having Alison representing me and signed up with her to be my attorney. Alison worked hard to have my penalties be at the minimum. She had my court venue changed to a judge that would go by the DA's suggested Order Of Probation which resulted in less school time and limited jail time. Alison responded immediately to my ongoing questions and followed through with all the information to fulfill my obligations for the court and DMV. Alison's fee was very reasonable and I received a very compassionate and professional representation. No need to say after my review, I would definitely have Alison represent me in the future for any legal matters , but of course I will not need her for DUI after learning my lesson from my mistake in Judgment.

I endorse this lawyer. If a family member that I liked, or good friend of mine, ever had the need for a criminal defense attorney, I would strongly suggest a call to Alison. She know the Courts and has all the contacts that, along with tremendous experience, would give her client the best opportunity to prevail, in my opinion. Like many defense attorneys, she handles a lot of DUI cases, but she also handles very serious felony charges. Prosecutors know she will take cases to trial and that awareness often makes her able to achieve favorable plea deals when appropriate.
