Firm Overview

Professional Personal Injury Representation Since 1949

After suffering a serious injury or losing a loved one in an accident, you will find no shortage of personal injury law firms willing to take your case. In fact, some may call you within hours after the accident. You will find yourself pressed into making decisions you never thought you would have to make.

Free Consultation ▪ No Attorney Fees Unless We Help You Recover Money

At Shamberg, Johnson & Bergman, we believe that hiring a litigation attorney is a very personal decision. Not every law firm is the right fit for you and, frankly, your case may not be the right fit for every law firm.

Premises Liability ▪ Product Liability ▪ Car Accidents ▪ Construction Accidents

We know that you may be talking to several lawyers about helping you get a maximum financial recovery for your injuries or loss. We'll never tell you not to. In fact, we encourage it. But we will recommend that you ask these important questions about the relationship you will be forming:

  • Does your attorney have experience?
  • Does the attorney explain things in plain English?
  • Will you have access to your lawyer throughout your case?
  • Does your attorney believe in your case?

And most important:

  • Do you personally like your attorney and your legal team?

These questions don't have very much to do with legal skill, experience or the law. The fact is, most people don't lose confidence in their lawyer because of legal incompetence. Trust goes away when they lose their personal connection, which is so important in every case. That won't happen at our firm.

"Yes, trial experience and skill is important, but equally important is the personal relationships we build with our clients, as we work toward a successful outcome for every case." — Senior partner Lynn Johnson
