Ratings and Reviews

Mr. Berens

Mike was incredibly helpful, patient and thorough in helping me navigate the military legal system. I truly appreciated his passionate and committed defense of me and helping to facilitate a fair judgment. I have no hesitancy in recommending this experienced and professional attorney to any military personnel or families.
