These Clients Trusted BK. You Can, Too

“I highly recommend attorney Jesse Bernheim and his team for any readers' future needs. Mr. Bernheim handled my insurance claim in a timely manner, and both he and his team kept me informed throughout the entire process. Without his representation, my claim would have been denied and I would have had several out of pocket expenses. Not only was the claim settled, but it was settled for the amount needed for repairs. Thank you, Jesse. Hopefully I won’t need you in the future, but if I do, you're the first phone call made. You are a true professional.”


“I have known Lou Battista for years and have always respected his tenacity and nonstop drive in everything he did. When it came to a point where I needed representation, I immediately thought of Lou and asked him to represent me, as I was getting very little response for my claim. In short order, meaning 1 to 2 weeks, I had an immediate increased response for my claim on the order of 3 to 4 times what they had originally offered, after Lou had submitted a claim on my behalf. Without his immediate response and aggressive position, I most certainly would have walked away with much less or even nothing.”


“Attorney Eric Sachs and his team are very professional and amazing. I highly recommend Bernheim Kelley Batista, LLC as the best law firm you can think of. Their communication is awesome. They handled my case and kept me updated every step of the way. I'm super happy with my end results. Thank you all for the time and effort put into my case. If you need an Attorney, Eric Sachs is the best to handle your situations. Don’t wait or think twice, you are in good hands!”
