Client Comments

"As my attorney, Inga Bernstein has represented me for the past eight years. She has displayed the characteristics that I have come to admire, not only as my lawyer, but also as a person. Inga is the ultimate professional; she is compassionate, tough when needed, precise, competitive, and devoted to doing the best job possible for her clients. She earned my trust through the hardest years of my life, and never have my phone calls gone unanswered. Inga was eloquent in court, respectful of the legal process, and a tough adversary. Winning $2.2 million was a victory, but Inga has helped me restore who I am! I will be forever grateful to have this professional as my attorney. "
