    I truly could not be more satisfied with my experience with Bernstein Polsky. I contacted Mr. Polsky when I was still in the hospital after a horrible accident. He met me and my wife over the weekend, didn't delay a moment and resolved my claim in record time - for record and maximum value well in excess of six figures. My wife and I are so grateful for his services and would recommend Mr. Polsky and his partner, Mr. Bernstein, without reservation. Thank you making our legal experience with your firm an absolute pleasure.
