Welcome to Maine’s top-ranked personal injury law firm
Berman & Simmons, P.A. is a fifteen-attorney personal injury law firm headquartered in historic downtown Lewiston, Maine with offices in Portland, Bangor, and Biddeford, Maine.
The story of Berman & Simmons began in 1914 when Benjamin Berman opened his doors on Lisbon Street in Lewiston. Berman and his brother David became known as trusted advocates for the men and women who worked at the city’s many textile mills and shoe factories. Their commitment to working Mainers ― no matter their wealth, background, or circumstances ― and their willingness to take on the most difficult and controversial cases remain hallmarks of our firm.
Today, Berman & Simmons is a statewide trial law firm specializing exclusively in Plaintiff lawsuits involving medical malpractice, motor vehicle accidents, wrongful death, unsafe property, defective products, dangerous drugs and medical devices, and sexual abuse. We win complex cases where our team’s depth of talent, expertise, and financial resources make all the difference. As powerful advocates for civil justice, we are dedicated to fighting tirelessly on behalf of those who have been injured through no fault of their own. With a steadfast and enduring mission, Berman & Simmons is poised for another century of success.
We’re looking for people who want to make a real difference
At Berman & Simmons, we recruit talented lawyers and legal professionals and provide them with the resources they need to learn, grow, and succeed. Our firm has developed a trial culture that focuses on developing advanced trial techniques and encourages collaboration among attorneys to achieve the best results for our clients. We strive to be a firm where a diverse mix of people want to do important work while making a meaningful difference for our clients and our community. Our lawyers and the work we do are often highlighted in the news.
We’re pioneering how personal injury law firms define success
Though we have won some of the largest medical malpractice and personal injury verdicts in Maine history and our lawyers continue to be recognized as the best in Maine, it’s not just about the money or the accolades. For us, it’s about carrying on the legacy Benjamin Berman started over 100 years ago by making sure our clients find the safety and strength to move forward after a serious injury, easing their path to recovery, and getting the compensation and justice they deserve. Since then, we have remained focused on our commitment to our clients and improving every aspect of how we represent them.
We’re proud of what we do and what we’ve accomplished. But we also recognize that our firm, the legal landscape, our society, and the needs of our clients are constantly changing. We seek talented individuals ready to help us address these challenges with positive energy, innovation, and a commitment to service excellence.
