When I first moved to Fl. about 10 years ago I was injured in an accident. Not knowing anybody here I picked a building with a name out front. They didn't handle my type of problem but referred me to Bernardo Injury Law. They made me feel confident and got me what I deserved but more importantly I felt comfortable I was being helped by someone I could trust. Over the years I also referred them several times to others who were happy with their outcome. Recently I was seriously hurt while on vacation and I had no doubts where I was seeking help. They again achieved results beyond my expectations. His staff is always friendly, knowledgeable and make you feel like you matter. It's not about billboards and TV commercials it's about knowing you have a team looking out for you that you can trust and you know has your best interests first and foremost and that you are not just a file folder in a cabinet. If somebody hurts me again I know I will always trust Bernardo Injury Law.

I'm not the type to leave reviews but I just have such a great experience that I couldn't wait to share it! (Tammie it's awesome and very helpful)needless to say going through an accident comes with a lot of stress, and concerns. I'm very grateful of the way they handled the case. Joe Bernardo takes time with your case and won't rush into settlement unless the offer it's reasonable. My family has have very bad experience with lawyers that take days to answer your questions and Joe will get back to you in a very reasonable time frame if he's not in the office. I will be recommending Joe to friends and family for sure. Keep up the good work and thank you!

I was referred to Joe by a friend in 2001, needless to say it is 2021 and I still call him when family, friends or I need to obtain an attorney. I’ve seen cases where the client does all the foot work because the lawyer claims to be an “INJURY LAWYER ONLY”. Not Joe! Joe and his staff makes the case as smooth as possible for the client as they are already going through enough. The firm does most of the work making it so that the client can focus on treating and getting better. The best part about working with Joe is knowing that he won’t steer you wrong. He’s always available for questions and answers, that’s more than I can say for other lawyers that take DAYS to call you back.

Bernardo Injury Law firm takes their time with your case, they never rush for a settlement. Joe and his paralegal Tammie are very professional, they were 100% dedicated to my case. This Law firm is One of the best law firms in Fort Myers. I say this because they are empathetic and very kind. My wife and I are very happy with how hard they worked for us, from the very beginning they showed us that we could trust them with our case. I recommend this firm, because it’s not a cookie cutter firm like some out there.They Are measured and careful in their execution and won’t stop until they obtain a positive outcome. This firm is brilliant and they will give you a family experience. Thank you Joe & Tammie

Joe and his staff are very professional. After my car accident, they guided me through the process every step of the way. Whenever I needed them, they were readily available to answer my questions or take care of the problems. I highly recommend him and his staff for any legal needs.

If you are looking for an attorney that will take personal interest in your case and meet with you personally and not through an investigator then Bernardo Law is who you need to call.
