On behalf of the Nagelberg Bernard Law Group, thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I am aware that there are many alternatives when seeking legal counsel, and choosing a law firm for your personal injury case can be overwhelming. I hope my personal biography will help you decide that our firm is the right one for you.
As far back as grade school, I can recall helping the little kid fight back against the class bully. That is why I chose to pursue a career in personal injury law. When I represent an accident victim against the “Goliath” insurance industry, it gives me a sense of pride and fulfillment.
It has been my personal mission as an attorney to seek justice by ensuring that my clients, who are hard-working individuals, are treated fairly and are justly compensated.
