client testimonials

Mr. Berkshire has advised me and counseled me on multiple issues over the past 20+ years. He is a trusted, tested, and admired attorney. I have recommended many friends and family to him and everyone has been pleased. I am happy to endorse Mr. Berkshire. I can assure you, you will not be dissatisfied working with his firm.


We have a lot of opportunities to work with attorneys and Angi is above and beyond them all! She is very thorough and always follows through with all the detail in every situation. I consistently refer my clients and our friends to Angi. From all of our referrals, we never had anyone come back to us with less than a five star plus! Angi works with all of her heart and exhibits a genuine care for others. She is more than intelligent and competent. She can work with all types of people, situations and resources. Again, it shows her ability to be individualized and caring.


Sometimes life’s transitions catch us off guard and require us to make decisions that are often emotional but necessary. Recently, we experienced this in our family, not only with the death of a family member, but also decisions with property, finances, future matters, etc. So now what? Our answer was attorney Tom Houston. Tom was gracious with his time, listened attentively to understand, and explained everything in a way that we understood with ease. It didn’t take long to realize that we were working with a man of integrity and strong values. Our family is so grateful for him.


The service Dave provided in completing my divorce was exceptional. I felt he had my best interests throughout the entire process and is very knowledgeable of his field. He walked me through each step thoroughly and with compassion. Despite the complexity of my divorce, he remained dedicated and patient throughout. I would definitely recommend his services.

Why Do I Need an Attorney?

If you or a loved one encounter a legal dispute or situation, an experienced lawyer is highly recommended to help you through the proceedings. An attorney can help with:

Estate planning. Planning for you and your family’s financial well-being during your lifetime and after you pass away can be an incredibly complicated matter, with many circumstances to consider and long-term strategies to conceptualize. Our attorneys can help you create a comprehensive estate plan with all of you and your family’s needs in mind, answering any sensitive or personal questions you may have along the way.

Personal injury. If you are seriously injured due to the negligent actions of another party, you may pursue significant compensation for your damages. However, even simple accidents may require the representation of an attorney to review your case and ensure you receive the compensation you are due. Our attorneys have a vast amount of successful experience dealing with insurance companies and litigating personal injury cases.

Probate law. After someone passes away, getting control of their assets and debts can be a stressful experience – and often the last item on a family member’s mind immediately following the death of a loved one. Our attorneys can assist in all of these matters, including working through Probate Court, enforcing the terms of a Will, designating a Personal Representative of an estate, and other potentially sensitive, contentious needs of a family.

Corporate and business law. Many businesses require attorneys to not only help with big-picture events such as mergers and acquisitions, but other day-to-day tasks, such as reviewing contracts and complying with regulations. Additionally, our seasoned lawyers have specific experience in a variety of industries including manufacturing, transportation, and retail that allows us to tailor our services to the needs of our corporate clients.

Family law. An experienced attorney can be invaluable in all family law matters. Even a straightforward divorce can quickly turn contentious, and complex matters such as custody and division of assets can be difficult to manage during these periods of stress and frustration. Our lawyers can give you the support and counsel necessary to ensure you achieve the best result possible.
