Attorney Profile

"Test.  Don't guess."  That is David Bernstein's motto, which is why every case is tested with focus groups.  If a focus group identifies issues that need to be overcome, the case is revised and tested again with focus groups until the issues are no longer issues.  As a result of Bernstein's reputation of doing over 250 focus groups over the last five years as well as successfully trying over 100 jury trials, many cases are settled for values higher than other lawyers are able to obtain.  

If you have a case that needs assistance, consider contacting David Bernstein.  The initial consultation is always confidential and free.

Bernstein's credentials include (1) teaching legal seminars every year to other lawyers on topics including personal injury, bad faith insurance, focus groups and trial practice, (2) successfully practicing law for over 35 years, (3) obtaining  numerous six- and seven-figure jury verdicts and settlements, (4) being 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 (5) being named the Dean of the Advanced Focus Group College at the prestigious Keenan Trial Institute.
