Absolutely positively the best injury law firm in SWFL, always punctual when it comes to handling your case. You would be doing yourself a disservice going anywhere else. Tammie the paralegal is amazing and Bernardo himself is hands down the most honest attorney know to man and always has your best interests in mind. Will continue to use this law firm for all my future cases.

I am writing this review to express my utmost gratitude and appreciation for the outstanding legal representation provided to me by Bernando Injury Law in my recent car accident injury case. From the initial consultation to the settlement negotiations, Joe displayed a high level of professionalism, expertise, and compassion. They were always available to answer my questions and address any concerns I had throughout the entire legal process. Thanks to Joe and Tammy diligent efforts, I received a settlement that far exceeded my expectations. They were able to negotiate with the insurance company and ensure that I received fair compensation for my injuries, medical expenses, and lost wages. I was impressed with the attention to detail that was showed in gathering evidence, conducting thorough investigations, and building a strong case. They were persistent in their pursuit of justice and never gave up until we achieved a positive outcome. I highly recommend your law firm to anyone who needs legal representation for personal injury cases. Your team's commitment to excellence and dedication to helping clients like me is truly exceptional.Thank you again for all that you have done for me. Your hard work, expertise, and compassion have made a significant difference. ☆☆☆☆☆

Bernardo Injury Law did a great job of representing us when faced with an unusual bike / car accident. They worked continually and effectively to provide a settlement that was acceptable and satisfactory. We recommend their involvement in any situation requiring legal representation.

Joe and Tammi did a great job! They handled everything necessary between the medical providers and me and made it easy! The best part was they negotiated aggressively and got me policy limits without going to court. They also negotiated the Workers’ Compensation lien down to about 10% of what it could have been! I highly recommend them!
