  • This is the man you want in your corner.
    A year and a half ago, my life almost ended...I was arrested by a police officer for a crime I did not commit. I was later told by a judge that there was sufficient evidence to warrant this arrest but it took many months to hear this information. In the meantime, since the arrest, I lost many things; my job, my license, friends, partners, faith in the overall kindness of human beings. Kindness is an important part of how I was raised and who I am. It was a kindness that put me on the road that night. It was a kindness that led me to create a career where I helped people, the very career that became threatened that fateful night. The very next person who showed me kindness after that traumatic event was Joseph Bernard. There was no way for him to show me that absolutely everything will be ok. He couldn't give me a satisfactory answer no matter how many questions I had (and I ALWAYS had many!!). For facts, he told me straight up it would be unethical if he told me that he could guarantee that everything will be ok. But he did tell me if he lost me the case, he would most likely retire. That's the kind of backing you get with Mr. Bernard. That's the kind of restoration of faith and life you get with him. That's the kind of reintroduction to the kindness of humans you get when you hire this man. I went through a lot... and although my case is over I know I have unfinished business that I know Mr. Bernard will undoubtedly help me sort out. But I'm here to tell you as someone who went through it and knows how scary it is when you are facing that black hole and approaching the event horizon and realize that you are about to lose everything you ever knew and fought for-- this is the man you want in your corner. Hands down.

  • He truly is a top of the line attorney.
    Joe came highly recommended by you could say important figures. If I could say anything it’s being patient when going to trial. DO NOT let your emotions get involved. Listen to Atty Bernard when he gives the advice. He truly is a top of the line attorney. His staff was great especially Stephen he was kind and courteous from the get-go. I appreciated that kindness it went a long way with us. Thank you Joe and keep up the good work.

  • Joe is well known and respected in the courtroom.
    I retained Attorney Bernard after my daughter who is an attorney reached out to her colleagues for a good DUI attorney. Joe came highly recommended. Joe is very knowledgeable and experienced with MA DUI laws. We worked well together to come up with the best solution for my case. The outcome was what I was hoping for and could not be more pleased. Joe is well known and respected in the courtroom. I would highly recommend Attorney Bernard.

  • He never let me down.
    Lawyer Bernard was very precise in every step of my case. He never let me down at any moment, he was always there making sure there was the best outcome moving forward against my charge. I’m glad I made the right decision to hire him as my lawyer. When he told me he was not a magician but is the best at what he does and would fight for me until the end of my case, I knew he was the right guy to represent me in court. He doesn’t promise you anything because he is a lawyer of actions not words. I’m very thankful that he helped me to move forward with my life. I also want to give a special thanks to Attorney Erika Bruno, she was truly an essential part of Joe’s team in my case. She was kind, warm, and a great listener that made this process very smooth. I’ll always be grateful, thank you!

  • I always felt respected and part of the team.
    I was very pleased with the expertise and professionalism with which Attorney Joe Bernard managed my case. It quickly became clear to me that he has the experience and respect of his peers necessary for effective litigation. From the start, Joe admitted that my case would be difficult, a longshot. His perseverance paid off in the end and we reached our desired outcome. Thanks, Joe! I’d also like to give Attorney Erica Bruno, appointed by Joe, special thanks. Erica was able to fight for me successfully in two different states! I always felt respected and part of the team. I’ll always be grateful for what Joe and Erica did for me. They certainly earned every penny of their fee!

  • They kept me informed step by step.
    I had a DMV issue that had involved two different states and DNR. Each state blamed the other state and I was caught in the middle. My license was suspended. Attorney Benard and staff handle my case quickly. Although I lived out of state. They kept me informed step by step along the way assuring me and always letting me know what to expect and what they were doing. The day I had my appeal, I was extremely confident with the representation of the firm. Within only 15 minutes of their representation, I had my license returned and won my appeal. I would highly recommend this law firm for any issue that one could have. Their rates are reasonable, their professional and they not only handled one state but two. They clearly knew the law and I would gladly use them again if the need arisen.

  • Attorney Bernard saved my life
    I am so grateful that I found Attorney Joseph Bernard and he agreed to represent me in my OUI case. I believe that without his guidance and his ability to understand my situation and treat me with dignity and respect made all the difference in my case. I was able to take his suggestions and act on them in a positive way by doing the next right thing as my case proceeded. In my humble opinion I would most likely have been sentenced to prison as a felon for violating the public trust if not for Attorney Bernard and his dedicated team. There are really no words that I can say which would be enough to express my thanks and gratitude. Attorney Bernard is not only the best lawyer who has total understanding of the OUI laws but he is probably one of the greatest humans I personally have ever met. The bottom line is that one phone call to Attorney Bernard saved my life. He not only represented me with every tool at his disposal but he was the catalyst I needed to change myself. If you need help and sincerely want to change you will never go wrong by contacting Attorney Joseph Bernard.

  • He makes time for you
    Joe is a life saver. He is personable, straight forward, quick witted, and fights for the best outcome. He may not always tell you what you want to hear, but trust in Joe's methods and intuition. He is not like some other in-your-face/ ask where you "heard about me so that I can know where to best advertise", kind of lawyers. He makes time for you when you need it, and if he's not available then he will make sure someone from his office IS, in order to help support you and answer your questions. I'd recommend him because of these qualities, along with his immense knowledge, experience, and involvement with litigation on the breathalyzer units. Thanks so much for your representation and compassion Joe! Truly.
