Attorney Dov Sacks is a highly skilled, versatile lawyer who represents clients in medical malpractice, civil rights, personal injury, products liability, nursing home injuries, and other civil matters. He is known for his tenacity and determination to achieve top results, no matter the odds or the opponent.

Prior to joining Berman & Simmons in 2014, Dov worked in Philadelphia where he represented victims of mortgage fraud and unfair business practices, homeowners facing foreclosure, and parents fighting to preserve their parental rights.

At Berman & Simmons, Dov continues to stand up for people who have been wronged or injured through no fault of their own. Dov settles for nothing less than the maximum recovery for his clients. At the same time, he understands that a lawsuit is about much more than dollars and cents.

“I love tackling the most complex challenges, delving into complicated medical and personal injury cases, and achieving the best results for my clients,” Dov says. “Working closely with clients is one of the most enjoyable parts of my work and an essential part of truly understanding a case. The stronger our relationship, the better the results.”

In 2000, Dov was named a United States Presidential Scholar, the nation’s top academic distinction for high school graduates. Dov went on to become a top scholar at Harvard College before earning an academic scholarship to The George Washington University Law School.

Upon graduating from law school, Dov was awarded the prestigious Richard C. Lewis, Jr. Memorial Award, presented to only one student in a class of more than 500 “for extraordinary dedication to clinics, and unusual compassion and humanity toward clients and colleagues.”
