“Adam was incredibly thorough, kind, professional and supportive throughout our legal proceedings. I very much enjoyed working with him, and found his deep understanding of both New York and New Jersey law to be comforting and reassuring amidst a situation filled with so much uncertainty. I would absolutely recommend Adam and his team, without hesitation, to anyone looking for an outstanding attorney!”


“Thank you for your help and expert mediation, truly.  There were times I almost lost hope and came close to giving up.  Your diplomacy, sensitivity, experience and knowledge made this possible with the positive light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you.”


A Life Support Attorney
“Without question, Adam is one of the most intelligent professionals I’ve ever worked with. His vast knowledge, insight and common sense advice were always perfect. He did such a good job with my divorce, that my ex-wife and I continue to join together for family events. He knew this was my goal.. and helped me to realize it. I am forever in his debt.”


Amazingly Talented Mediator
“I had a great experience working with Adam. He skillfully and sensitively helped us navigate through the divorce process. Adam takes a collaborative approach and was able to keep us focused on the forest instead of getting stuck in the trees. While my ex-wife and I both had our own independent counsel, Adam’s involvement easily saved us tens of thousands of dollars in legal bills that would have been incurred in conjunction with what I am sure would have been a much lengthier and more contentious negotiation process. My only regret is that we didn’t involve Adam earlier in the process.”


“If I could add more stars to this review I would. Adam made the whole mediation process so comfortable, especially since we had a very unique situation we were dealing with. Not only was Adam courteous, compassionate , and knowledgeable, but he truly cared for what was in the best interest for both my husband and myself. An added bonus is his staff. They were always efficient and helpful in any questions we had. We feel very fortunate to have had such a positive experience through such a difficult time. Thank-you Berner Law and Mediation Group for all your help and guidance. You are one in a million!”


“Going through one of the hardest experiences in my life was made easier and less painful with Adam’s services. He guided both my ex and myself through each point that needed to be decided and when consensus wasn’t achieved he used a very nonjudgmental and non-bias technique to help us come to an agreement.”


“Adam is a professional and knowledgeable mediator. He really knows how to get people who can’t agree on anything to come together and make decisions for the sake of their family. Thank you Adam!”


“Great experience, I would very highly recommend Adam, he is very skilled at mediation, was compassionate, attentive and communicative about the whole process.”


“Adam in my opinion the best system. The best answer to mediation.”


“Without question, Adam is one of the most intelligent professionals I’ve ever worked with. His vast knowledge, insight and common sense advice were always perfect.

He did such a good job with my divorce, that my ex-wife and I continue to join together for family events. He knew this was my goal.. and helped me to realize it. I am forever in his debt.”


“Thank you for patiently getting us through this process. Your patience and professionalism I regard highly.”


“Thank you for all the work and time you put into my case.  I am fully aware that you went above and beyond the norm, and for that I will be forever grateful. Thank you for your patience…”


“You’re a great guy. I love to work with someone who is considerate, level headed and reasonable, and I feel as though you know me…”


“Hi Adam,

I just wanted to let you know that N and I were chatting on the train home last night and we were saying that we both are really impressed by your skill at mediation.  We think you are doing a wonderful job.  While this is a very difficult time for us, we both feel fortunate that we have you to help guide us through this.”


“You helped us see past our present pain and enabled us to focus on creating a future which we’re both living in now, in a much better place.”


“Although this has clearly been a difficult process, I am deeply grateful for your assistance in getting us to this point. Your professionalism and compassion were uniquely blended to keep us moving thoughtfully forward and, most importantly, with a primary focus on our son’s well-being. I have already recommended your services to a colleague and will continue to do so if the occasion arises.”


“Simply put, you are an Angel, doing God’s work.”


“Big adjustment, but finally I can breathe.  Peace of mind is a beautiful thing, and I thank you every day for helping me get to that place.”


“You made me feel very comfortable. This stuff is pretty overwhelming and you made it much easier for me.”


“Thank you so much for your aid in my divorce proceedings. You helped make a potentially hot situation go smoothly.”


“In mediation we looked at divorce as a family problem, not just as a legal problem.”


“We came into your office doubting we could even talk to each other without our anger getting the best of us. But we did it. Thank you for making this process so much easier on us and our children.”


“I credit you for the fact that my ex-husband and I have had such a loving relationship during our long separation.”


“Hi Adam,

You and I spoke on the phone once but in the end my husband M hired you. You acted as his advocate in the context of a completely collaborative process arriving at a mutually satisfactory separation agreement, which we signed last July. Thus, I was not officially your client, but together with M I benefited from your expertise. You knew stuff other lawyers we consulted didn’t know, and you thought of angles other lawyers we consulted didn’t think of.”


“On behalf of my three children, I would like to thank you for having stood by my side for these past 3 1/2 years all the way through to having my freedom thus giving me liberty and for having helped  secure my children’ s bonding with me.”


“Adam, I cannot begin to thank you for your patience and sensitivity throughout this entire period of time. I can well understand that, many a time, it must have been extremely awkward for you, yet you always maintained an objectively and professionalism which I appreciate and admire. Thank you for all your help.”


“I am writing you this letter because I want to make you aware of an extremely gifted mediator with whom I have worked on several cases.  Adam had helped the litigants in each case work through complicated financial matters as well as extremely difficult custodial and visitation issues.  I have never met an attorney or therapist who has assisted both parties more skillfully through the mine fields of parenting time and holiday schedule. He has gently but firmly guided each party to a reasonable resolution. Because I am aware how difficult, contentious, time consuming and expensive dealing with parenting time and, specifically, holiday scheduling can be (not to mention financial matters), I wanted to bring Mr. Berner to your attention as he is uniquely qualified in this area.  The intellectual honesty, and quite frankly, moral imperative he brings to the mediation table is impressive.”


From a Divorce Attorney

“I’m not sure if you remember me and my husband B. You helped us to divorce approximately four years ago.  Thanks to you, the process, albeit the pain, was done with tremendous love and care.  We have always been grateful to you for your efforts to help us through a difficult time. About a year and a half ago, B and I reunited.  After four years of separation, we grew so much individually and together, that we found a new love and respect for one another.  I am not sure this could have been possible without your guidance when we initially separated. Our son, L, now seven, is of course thrilled. I just thought you should know what gifts your work can bring.”


Former client who eventually reconciled with her spouse

“Your training was excellent. It was fun and we learned so much – just what we needed! When can you come back?”


“Thank you so much for all your help the last couple of months. We desperately needed a calming influence, and you were truly one.  You helped me get out of what, I believe, was a bad marriage in a smart and efficient way. And for that I will always be grateful.”
