“Jon’s knowledge of the law and expertise literally saved my life, family and career”
For Jon, the decision to become a lawyer was always about helping people when they need it most – facing the aftermath of an auto accident, work injury, or criminal charges.
Those are the times people are most vulnerable and need accurate information to make good decisions and legal representation to protect their rights and future.
Accessibility, Communication, Knowledge, and Results
“Jon took time to comfort and help us over a holiday weekend. He put our minds at ease and was there for us when we needed him”
– Lesia L.
Jon has represented thousands of clients in Connecticut courts. His experience and personality combine to put clients at ease:
- he listens – it’s important for him to hear the whole story
- he is direct – he explains the complicated legal process without complicated language
- he stays in touch – he calls frequently with case updates and reassurance
- he is always available by text or phone – nights, weekends, even on vacation (understood, but not always appreciated by his family)
Regular communication helps Jon prepare the case, and you, for anything. He anticipates a variety of situations and prepares strategic responses – no surprises.
Jon did not become a lawyer in order to do something else, like run for office or build a big firm. He’s a lawyer because he likes to do the work and especially likes the people he does it for.
“Jon is a real down to earth person who actually cares about his clients”
– Michael D.
For over 30 years, South Windsor and Manchester have provided Jon and his wife, Myra, an ideal community for his law firm and family. Jon’s wife was a special education teacher in the Manchester Public School system for over 30 years, and his daughter attended South Windsor Public schools and graduated in 1999.
The Law Firm of Berman & Russo is located in a South Windsor historic landmark, the Grant Homestead built in 1810. The restoration of this historic home reflects Jon’s appreciation of local history and its importance to his community.
“I feel like I made a friend for life. He is the BEST!”
