"Becoming A Client"

The value of retaining the lawyers at Bergstrom & Associates is that our lawyers bring with them years of “real life” experience with real client cases. Our seasoned lawyers have encountered a multitude of unique and complex cases which enables us to provide customized legal services to all of our clients. This individual customization begins with the free consultations available to every client.

At the beginning of every consultation, our process remains the same. We approach each client case as follows:

♦  With an open mind and a fresh perspective
♦  We erase all preconceived notions related to prior cases
♦  We carefully listen to extract as many details as possible.

We are then able to answer any questions and provide the client with specific details regarding how our legal services can be of assistance to them and their legal needs.
