I am not writing this review as a bankruptcy client of Mr. Berggren…..it is quite the opposite. This review, which I hope to post everywhere, is about Mr. B’s character, his courtesy and understanding, his extreme knowledge of contractual and bankruptcy laws, and his professionalism (not to mention his terrific sense of humor). On 3/3/23, I signed a contract with Covenant Roofing in Durham, as well as the financing documents for the job through GoodLeap, which Covenant refers their clients to for financing options. About 5 weeks after I signed the contracts, no work had yet been started, Covenant Roofing filed for bankruptcy. Also, GoodLeap increased the amount of the contract I signed and they would not give me an addendum or a voided contract of the first one I signed, even though that amount was included AGAIN in the second set of loan documents. Of course, I would not sign the second set. A friend of mine is a bankruptcy client of Mr. B, and she suggested I contact him for an unusual sort of consultation. First of all, somebody actually answered the phone when I called his office, and second of all, he called me right back. He said he would be happy to talk about my situation right over the phone, and third of all, with NO CONSULTATION FEE after 40 minutes on the phone. Amazing. The bottom line is that, even though he is not my lawyer or representing me in any way, I took his advice on what to do which resulted in me getting out of my GoodLeap financing loan. And because I have it documented and memorialized that Covenant never started the work, nor did they return my calls and inquiries, that matter is also considered as null and void. Thank you Mr. Berggren for being a decent human being who is ruled and driven by just doing something nice!

I’m not much on writing reviews but I feel like I’d be doing a disservice by not sucking it up for the gain of others after having done business with Mr. Berggren. Being 50 I come from the age of filing being something taboo and I couldn’t say with any more certainty it was by far one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I immediately had a weight lifted off my shoulders after going to court with Bill and being approved to file with the damages I had caused myself financially. Not only was I able to keep my car and home but I was able to walk away from bad decisions in my opinion such as a time share, high interest loan, etc. I spent a lot of time checking others reviews and one of the many great things about filing with Bill is the fact you deal with the person you hire. It’s not like the offices of big name lawyers where you deal with all their up and comers. Not that they don’t deserve their right to make a name for themselves but when you’re talking about salvaging everything I’ve ever worked for having him by my side in court and every step of the way was lets say a blessing. Should you need to make this decision to better your financial and mental well being you can’t go wrong with working with Bill in my opinion. Best Wishes in your endeavors and I pray you’re blessed as I have been in your future years both mentally and financially.

Had a consultation a month or so ago in regards to an elderly relatives' financial problems. We were 100% sure were were going to have to file bankruptcy for this relative, but when we met with William Berggren he advised us to wait for now and revisit the situation in a year. He could of very easily told us to file this bankruptcy, and collected our money, but he was very patient explaining the process and advising us to wait for now. If in a year we need to pursue this filing we will definitely us his law office.

Attorney Berggren was professional, courteous and patient. He went above and beyond the scope of his needed involvement to listen thoroughly, understand our situation, and provide wise counsel. He was not interested in bilking us for payment, and in fact, recommended we NOT pay him for something that was unnecessary (when he easily could have acted like it was, and gotten us to pay.) I highly recommend him when going through the emotional and stressful bankruptcy process.

Mr. Berggren is one of the most upstanding, caring people I have encountered. My/your best interest is what he looks after and the experience I have had with him is second to none other. I particularly like the fact that his office is NOT the type of law firm in a high-rise building downtown with many employees. I could not give a stronger recommendation for having him for legal counsel.

"Consummate Professional" is an understatement. I met Mr. Berggren in 2015. I thought it would be a simple process of seeking a lawyer and paying his fee....

AAL general personal injury Frequently Asked Questions

What is personal injury law?

Personal injury law encompasses legal remedies and defenses involved in civil lawsuits brought as a result of wrongful conduct. It covers situations where someone's negligence or intentional actions cause harm to another person. Personal injury law allows injured individuals to seek compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This area of law often involves cases such as car accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and defective product injuries.

What is compensation for a personal injury claim?

Compensation for a personal injury claim typically includes monetary damages intended to compensate the injured party for their losses. This compensation can cover various aspects such as medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages or income, property damage, and pain and suffering. The goal is to provide financial relief to the injured person and help them recover from the physical, emotional, and financial impact of their injuries.

Is emotional distress a personal injury?

Emotional distress can be considered a personal injury under certain circumstances. In legal terms, emotional distress refers to the psychological impact of an injury or traumatic event, such as anxiety, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). While it may not always involve physical harm, emotional distress can still be compensable in a personal injury claim if it can be linked to the defendant's actions or negligence.

What percentage do most personal injury lawyers take?

Most personal injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, which means they only get paid if they successfully recover compensation for their clients. Typically, personal injury lawyers take a percentage of the final settlement or court award as their fee. The percentage varies but commonly ranges from 33% to 40% of the total recovery. This arrangement allows injured individuals to pursue legal action without upfront costs and ensures that attorneys are motivated to achieve favorable outcomes for their clients.

How long does a personal injury lawsuit take?

The duration of a personal injury lawsuit can vary significantly depending on various factors, including the complexity of the case, the extent of the injuries, and the court's schedule. Some cases may be resolved through settlement negotiations relatively quickly, while others may take months or even years to reach a resolution, especially if they go to trial. Additionally, factors such as gathering evidence, conducting discovery, and waiting for medical treatment to conclude can influence the timeline of a personal injury lawsuit.

What is an example of a serious injury claim?

An example of a serious injury claim could involve catastrophic injuries that result in long-term or permanent disabilities, such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis, severe burns, or limb amputations. These types of injuries often have significant and lasting effects on the victim's physical, emotional, and financial well-being, requiring extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. Serious injury claims typically seek substantial compensation to cover these extensive damages and provide for the victim's future needs.

What is compensation for a loss or injury?

Compensation for a loss or injury refers to the financial recovery awarded to an injured party in a legal proceeding. This compensation aims to restore the injured person to the position they were in before the injury occurred to the extent possible. It can include economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, as well as non-economic damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. The goal of compensation is to help the injured individual recover physically, emotionally, and financially from the consequences of their injury.

What is the highest personal injury settlement?

The highest personal injury settlement or verdict can vary greatly depending on the specific circumstances of the case, including the severity of the injuries, the extent of the damages, and the jurisdiction where the case is tried. Settlements and verdicts in personal injury cases have reached into the tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars in some instances, particularly in cases involving catastrophic injuries, medical malpractice, or wrongful death. However, there is no fixed limit on the amount of compensation that can be awarded in a personal injury case, as each case is evaluated based on its unique factors and the applicable laws and precedents.
