I was in a car accident and was at a loss. I called around a few places and Mr. Bertrand seemed eager to help and very genuine. I had spoken with a few lawyers and it always seemed I was not worth their time by the way and tone they spoke to me, some never called back. Bertrand settled my case for more than I expected and this made a significant difference in my life when I was in such an overwhelming situation. Bertrand helped me 2 years ago and I am still very thankful. I should have left this review a long time ago, I'm just one to leave reviews. I highly recommend Mr. Bertrand

I had an issue recently where I had made a mistake. Came to Mr. Bertrand and he was able to get both of my charges dropped to significantly lesser charges. One of the original tickets could have ruined my future teaching career. A lawyers job is not necessarily to prove their clients innocence, but to see that every process of the issue is handled fairly and according to our constitutional rights, and Mr. Bertrand found that I was not treated one hundred percent fairly. I have to admire that about a lawyer. I will recommend him to anybody I know who needs a defense lawyer.
