Lois and Stuart: We highly recommend Bernardo Injury Law. Joe was willing to take our Case after two other Lawyers were not able to do what was needed to be done to close this accident case. Joe was very informative at our first meeting which was a free consultation. He explained everything very clearly on how our case would work. He said that car accidents are somewhat timely and he was right. Joe always kept us updated on what was going on with the insurance company. Joe was kind and considerate to our many phone calls. Joe always took our phone calls when we called and if he was not available he would always return our calls. Joe was a very big asset to our insurance case and did a superior job. We would recommend Bernardo Law firm to friends family and everyone else Lacey who is Joe’s assistant was always very pleasant and friendly. She always responded to any of our needs. She always kept us up to date on what was going on with our case. Lacey has a caring heart and she always comforted us in our time of frustration and stress. The staff at the Law firm was always friendly and caring Geo was always attentive to our needs. We were so Blessed to find them in our desperate need. Joe’s fee was more than fair. Bernardo Injury law was exception. You won’t go wrong by hiring this group. I would defiantly higher them again.

Curt: The PIP process to cover medical fees in Florida is a joke! Without Joe and Lacey we would have been in trouble. Florida makes it impossible to be treated fairly if in a car crash especially if there are injuries. You must get a lawyer and I would definitely recommend Joe. He made everything easy and we received extra compensation which was very appreciated because of the frustration, pain and injury not to mention our car is worth half of what it was before. Don’t go it alone or You will be stuck with medical bills that you didn’t even know you had to cover when it wasn’t even your fault to begin with!!

Irma: Awesome attorney and staff. Case was a bit difficult, but I did compensation and also an attorney and staff that general care. This attorney cares about his clients and this is rare to see this. I had a previous automobile injury case never meet the attorney. In this one not only did I meet him, he was genuine and care about my case. I believe in his firm as well as him. Keep up the great job.

Lisa: I was very pleased with the handling and outcome of my MVA case. Mr. Bernardo and his staff were extremely professional, knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. I would highly recommend Bernardo Injury Law.

Jeff and Shaun: I just wanted to thank you for helping us with all of this. I appreciate your patience with me and talking to Jeff, to help me understand. I really did not know insurance companies were heartless. Thank you again for everything.

Mike: In early September of 2006, I was injured in a roof collapse at my job. I was in the hospital for some time. Joe told me it would be a hard fight, costly and filled with stalling from other law firms. He helped me by giving me all the information needed to assist me in making decisions. In the end it was a very complicated case but the results were extraordinary. Large law firms are forced by the nature of their business to run case mills. Their style is in and out as soon as possible. My case involved engineers, video interviews, private detectives, depositions and written statements from doctors who were involved in my recovery. Joe covered all the bases.

Lynda: This note is to convey our sincere thanks and gratitude for all the time and hard work of our recent litigation. We would be more than pleased to allow our names to be used (as more than satisfied) customers of your legal work. Your professionalism, eye on details, and legal expertise brought a successful resolution to our action. Your friendly and calming demeanor gave us peace of mind and reduced the anxiety. Your team of office staff was so helpful in the office and by phone (gratefully appreciated). Our hardy recommendation to all who could benefit from your services.

Kelly: I was involved in a multi vehicle accident on Interstate 75 with my three month old daughter in the back seat. Joseph Bernardo and his staff helped me to understand the full meaning of how the claims are handled. They provided prompt responses to e-mails and phone calls. The settlement process was much shorter than expected and also turned out a higher payout than expected. I am very grateful that I had Joseph Bernardo and his well educated, highly responsive, professional and determined staff to assist me during this stressful and life changing event. I would highly recommend Joseph Bernardo and his staff to anyone who has received injuries from an accident.

Joe, Sandra, and Ashley: On December 1, 2008, my wife, daughter and I were in an auto accident. I live with my family in Cape Coral, Florida. The accident was in Virginia. My wife’s injuries were quite extensive. My car was totaled and we lost all of our belongings after coming back home from Virginia. I lined up all my wife’s doctors then next thing was to choose a lawyer after seeing all the ads on television and hearing them on the radio. I had to decide what to do. Do I become just another case filed with a large law firm or do I want someone like Joseph Bernardo (Bernardo Injury Law)? Someone who will listen to the problems I am having and help me handle them. After our first meeting, I knew I made the right choice. He explained every step of mine and my family’s case and it was complicated. Bernardo Injury Law works closely with an attorney in the State of Virginia which was hired to assist in the handling of our case. Joseph and his staff stayed with us the whole way. Anytime I needed anything to be done between Florida and Virginia was taken care of promptly and professionally by Joseph or any of his staff that were available at that moment. I was very impressed. I would highly recommend them to anyone. My case settled out of Court but a few trips had to be made to Virginia. Joseph and his staff stayed with us the whole way. It is time to say thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

Ray and Ann: Just a few words to tell you how grateful my wife and I are for your recommendation of the Bernardo Injury Law firm to represent us in our lawsuit as a result of the injuries we received when struck by an automobile from behind. Not only did Joe do a superb job but his staff of three girls were pleasant, fair, and very competent. We certainly will recommend Joe Bernardo’s firm for injury law to our friends and relatives.

Jessica: Joe worked with my difficult case involving 3 separate accidents. The time and care he took to review my case and put my mind at ease, speaks volumes to his character and work ethic as my personal representative.

Megan: The staff at Bernardo Injury Law make a process that can be nerve wracking seem easy and seamless. They were always available to answer any questions. Even when the things I were asking might have been simple and/or ridiculous they never made me feel like I was a burden. They did a great job and I would recommend this office to all my friends and family.

Jasimine: I highly recommend Joe Bernardo! He is great to work with and will handle your case in a professional hands on manner. He will do what it takes to get the case settled with great results. You get one on one attention that you wouldn’t get with the larger law firms.

Anthony: 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.

Steve: I’ve known Joe for 27 years and he’s simply the best! He is extremely conscientious and thorough. As a SWAT officer for 16 years I wouldn”t hesitate to go into battle with him, both in the courtroom and out.
