5-star Google Review: Exceedingly impressed
I am exceedingly impressed with Dan and his team. They moved quickly and intelligently to assess if I had a case worth pursuing. Due to the time lapse since the original incident, we did not move forward, however based on my interactions I have every confidence Dan would have represented me very well. – D. Bevan

5-star Google Review: Genuinely concerned
I would like to thank Dov Sacks and his team for their legal assistance for my mom. Dov and his team were so great in caring for my mom and answering her questions about the process. I use the term caring as one who has been a caregiver for over 30 years. I was amazed how genuinely Dov and his team were concerned about my mom’s needs. I honestly didn’t expect this from lawyers. It wasn’t about the money it was truly about my mom first. Thanks Dov and team. God bless you greatly. – D. Smith

5-star Google Review: They truly cared for us
Five is, truly, not enough stars! My father and I needed some legal assistance and Berman & Simmons came very highly recommended from a friend; a retired judge. Susan Faunce and Chris Boots were there for us every step of the way. They were always prepared, professional, quick to respond to our needs, and above all it was evident that they truly cared for us, and for our situation. They patiently guided and supported us through the mediation process, and were able to help us settle our case in a successful way that provided not only relief, but closure. We will forever be grateful for the hard work, persistence, and care that they provided. – K. Keene

5-star Google Review: Their professionalism and intelligence were exactly what we needed
When my son died suddenly and mysteriously, a good friend told me I needed a really good lawyer. I had heard that expression used many times, “a really good lawyer,” but I didn’t fully understand what that expression meant, until I met Susan Faunce and Chris Boots, at Berman & Simmons. Susan and Chris not only took on my case, but they took it on with deep passion and compassion. Over many months, I witnessed their indefatigable effort on my behalf. Their professionalism and intelligence were exactly what we needed. I will be forever grateful for the great job they did for my daughter, Kate, and me. – T. Leighton 

5-star Google Review: Never left out of the loop
These guys are the best!
The wonderful Dov Sacks was assigned as my lawyer, and when they said I had a case he went out of his way to make things go as easy for me as he could. Never was I left out of the loop, and never was I made to feel like this was pointless. Thanks to the hard work of his team, I won my case and my family and I have the closure we need for what was a really horrible experience. Can’t thank them enough. – S. Crockett

5-star Google Review: Above and beyond
I was hit by a drunk driver last year and Berman and Simmons went above and beyond. Steve Silin is so good at his job! I highly recommend them! – M. Potter

5-star Google Review: Amazing to work with
Daniel Kagan and his staff were amazing to work with. I was involved in a no fault motorcycle accident that has changed me for life.

5-star Google Review: The go-to PI firm in Maine. Professional and competent! – M. Tuminaro

5-star Google Review: I will never be able to thank him enough
I suffered a concussion from an auto accident. Dov went out of his way to reach out to a specialist. This doctor took the time to listen and knew what to do to fix me. I would highly recommend Dov to anyone that needs help. Like me, he cared more about my health than my settlement. He kept in touch to make sure treatment was going well and to make sure I was not stressed about mounting bills. I will never be able to thank him enough. – C. Larrabee

Attorney Sacks and his team did a great job with the case for my son. They were very accessible when needed even on a weekend. I could text him if needed and he got back quickly. – J. Gurney

5-star Google Review: They had our best interest in mind
The thought of seeking a legal service, while you have experienced medical issues is nerve racking, but the lawyers at Berman & Simmons fully understand the complexity. When you start this journey it is important to have the best team of lawyers, with experience on their backs, and knowledge to pursue your case.
 Me and my family are thankful for the team that worked with us at Berman & Simmons. Everybody at the office was professional and they had our best interest in mind. – S. Mvita

5-star Google Review: Prompt, professional, kind, and caring
From the start, Susan Faunce was extremely compassionate and caring, all while being very upfront and professional. She readily made herself available if we had questions or concerns and was always there to reassure us in the process. Her paralegal was always right on top of everything. Prompt, professional, kind, and caring is the best way to describe both of them. Later in the case Susan brought on another Berman Simmons attorney, Elizabeth Kayatta, to assist her. She was sharp as a tack. Together, they put together a very successful case on our behalf. We are forever grateful for them and would not think twice to recommend them to anyone. – R. Madore

5-star Google Review: I always felt heard
Dov Sacks and his associates at Berman & Simmons where wonderful to work with. I felt that Dov went above and beyond for us during our case, and I always felt heard!  Dov was easy to work with and effective in getting things done. Our family really appreciated all of the hard work that was put into our case by Dov.  I would highly recommend them to anyone who needs someone who will listen to you and work hard for you. – M. Barker

5-star Google Review: Professional as well as understanding
I was Dov Sacks’ client for three years. He kept me well informed during the entire process. Mr. Sacks and his team are very caring individuals. They are very professional as well as understanding. Mr. Sacks went above and beyond the nine-to-five call. I would recommend Dov Sacks and his law firm. They are the best in Maine. N. Hasenfus 

5-star Google Review: Caring, compassionate, honest people
Working with the legal team at Berman & Simmons was very reassuring. They were very concerned about us as individuals and how working through the legal process would affect our family. They were caring, compassionate, honest people who were simply trying to make sure the right things happened for us. I would recommend that anybody who has suffered an injury due to medical malpractice work with Berman & Simmons to advocate for them. S. Hamel

5-star Google Review: Over and above the call of duty
Berman and Simmons provided me with a second chance at life. Travis Brennan went over and above the call of duty. The professionalism, dedication and work ethic these people exhibited was well beyond what I could have asked for.
 If you are in need, contact this firm. – S. Robbins  

5-star Google Review: I always knew they were in my corner
I was referred to Steven Silin after I was involved in a motorcycle accident involving the death of my husband. He was amazing to work with from the beginning. His team kept me informed through the whole process from the initial interview to the final settlement. T
hey always checked in with me, kept me up to date on the case and fought for me with the the insurance company. I always knew that they were in my corner. I recommend the
 Law of Berman & Simmons and Lawyer Steven Silin for your personal injury needs. – J. Mains

5-star Google Review: Top notch lawyer
I cannot say enough positive things about the professionals we worked with at Berman & Simmons. At the most stressful time in our lives, they were there to listen to us and guide us through the legal process with compassion and confidence. Jodi Nofsinger is not only a
top notch lawyer, she is a top notch person. Our outcome was the true definition of “under promise and over deliver”. I would refer them with certainty to anyone. – L. Hamel

5-star Google Review: A pleasure to work with
I am a person that never thought of holding a doctor accountable for their actions. I got in touch with Jodi Nofsinger and it was the greatest thing I could have done. She made the whole experience so easy. She listened to me and explained everything she was going to do. She is so passionate,
knowledgeable and caring in what she does. This team was a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend them. – R. Nason

5-star Google Review: An outstanding job
After suffering a leg injury
I suffered serious complications and many months of follow up care. I was referred to Travis Brennan. Travis put his everything into this case. His courtroom presentation was something many attorneys could learn from. I always felt that I was on the front burner of the things he was working on. All my calls and questions were answered promptly. Travis becomes your friend as well as your advocate. Jodi Nofsinger was also at my side throughout the trial offering words of wisdom, advice and concern. Thank you doesn’t seem enough for all your hard work.
 An outstanding job. I have and will continue to recommend Travis and his team.  P. Akerson

5-star Google Review: Honest and helpful
I couldn’t be more pleased with the fine work from all the staff at Berman & Simmons. At first, I was weary of asking for legal help but once I met Daniel Kagan, those fears went right away. All the staff that assisted me and worked on my case did fine work. Honest and helpful. These are GOOD lawyers. Professional and serious about YOU. – D. Walker

They work as a team and achieved really good results for me. – J. Pierce

5-star Google Review: Honesty and compassion
I was encouraged to reach out to Berman and Simmons. My first meeting with Attorney Michael Bigos showed me a demeanor of sincere honesty and compassion. Throughout the time we worked together, Michael and his team were so professional, and genuinely concerned for my
well being. They were prompt in responding to any and all of my inquiries. I would highly recommend Berman and Simmons, and especially Michael Bigos. – P. Sanders

5-star Google Review: You want this firm in your corner

5-star Google Review: Caring, honest, and trustworthy
I have worked with Dan Kagan, Tammy, and Justine. Not only are they professional in personal injury cases,
they are caring, honest, and trustworthy. They listened to my concerns and continuously checked in to see how I was progressing with my injury. If I ever need legal services again, I will go back to Berman & Simmons and feel comfortable with any attorney at that firm based on my experience. – A. Phillips

5-star Google Review: Very surprised how quickly the process went
My personal injury case was with another attorney’s office but never got anywhere so I had it transferred to the office of Berman & Simmons who took care of the case quickly and professionally. My injury happened in Maine and I live in Maryland so I wasn’t expecting it to go so smoothly but was very surprised how quickly the process went. I was very happy that I did not have to return to Maine in order for the case to be completed, everything was done through mail, email and phone calls. I would recommend to anyone in Maine who suffers an injury that requires a personal injury attorney to choose Timothy Kenlan. – D. Walter

Kind and patient
I will never forget how kind and patient you were to me during the worst time of my life. Thanks are never enough. – Client from Washington County

You always tried to make it as easy a process as possible
The last two and a half years have been a long haul for me and for my family. You have had to see me through some of the very lowest points in my life. Throughout the entire time, both of you were incredibly professional. You were respectful, supportive and encouraging. I know how complicated a case this was and the time and diligence it took to put the pieces together of a ‘shattered’ life so to speak. I saw the stacks of binders filled with medical files your paralegal carried from the Portland office doors one day. You always tried to make it as easy a process as possible. So much of what you were able to provide, outside of legal advice, was being real with me and making me feel comfortable in some very uncomfortable situations. This was worth as much as the dollars and cents awarded. – Client from Cumberland County

5-star Google Review: Thorough, clear, considerate and we had a challenging yet successful case. – C. Frair

Grateful for making this outcome the best it could be

Throughout the process, my lawyer and his two legal assistants were consistently calm, patient, friendly, and respectful; they deftly modeled the way to conduct a flawless and humane legal process for the client.
