Attorney Profile

What separates David Bernstein from most other trial lawyers is that David Bernstein also runs Focus Group Oklahoma, which has state-of-the-art focus group facilities with professional quality video and audio equipment at the Bernstein Law Building.  Focus Group Oklahoma does focus groups usually once or twice a week.  If a focus group determines a potential case is without merit, the case is declined.  If a focus group identifies issues that need to be overcome, this information is utilized when presenting the case for trial. This focus-group-first mentality allows David Bernstein to have the confidence to spend whatever is necessary, even over $100,000 in expenses if required, to advocate on his client’s behalf. 

If you have a case that needs assistance, consider contacting David Bernstein.  Besides moderating over 250 focus groups at Focus Group Oklahoma, Bernstein also provides litigation assistance to other lawyers across Oklahoma.  In addition, Bernstein teaches legal seminars every year to other lawyers on topics including personal injury, bad faith insurance, focus groups and trial practice.  Bernstein has practiced law for over 35 years; has tried over 100 jury trials; has secured numerous six- and seven-figure jury verdicts and settlements; has been recognized as a Super Lawyer (which is restricted to the top 5% of all attorneys) in Oklahoma every year since this prestigious program began in 2006; and is the Dean of the Advanced Focus Group College at the Keenan Trial Institute.  The initial consultation is always confidential and free.

If you want to help the underprivileged that go hungry in Oklahoma, please consider making a tax deductible donation to Lawyers Fighting Hunger, a nonprofit charity started in 2011 by Noble McIntyre, Hugh Robert and David Bernstein, by visiting www.lawyersfightinghunger.org.                           

Please call 405.329.1484 or 800.235.0529 to set up a free initial, confidential consultation.  In the alternative, you can send an e-mail to [email protected] and describe your legal issue.  The main office has plenty of free parking and is located in downtown Norman at 104 W.
