We take A Business Approach to Legal Service

At Bernstein-Burkley, we have cultivated a reputation for excellence over four decades in the Pittsburgh business community. Our core purpose is to create partnerships that provide clients with peace of mind through expert advice and zealous representation.

Our law firm concentrates in Bankruptcy & Restructuring, Creditors’ Rights, Business & Corporate Transactions, Real Estate, and Oil & Gas. In all of our transactions, one variable remains the same: a commitment to respecting and understanding our clients’ best interests and bottom line. We approach each client with the same care and diligence in which we handle our own business needs.  We found out long ago that what our clients liked best about us is that we care about their business and business practices.  We approach every case by first analyzing the cost and benefits to the client as it relates to every action we might take.  We don’t ever want a client to get a bill for legal services in excess of the value of the ultimate result.  That is viewing legal service with a business-oriented mindset.

A Tradition of Excellence

An important component to our business approach is our attorneys, who are not only nationally recognized leaders in their practice areas but carry on the tradition of experience and innovation. With three dual-certified partners, we have more board-certified creditors’ rights specialists than any other Pennsylvania law firm. Quite simply, we are among the area’s best, most respected, and most trustworthy law firms. Our clients can feel confident about working with us and knowing that we understand their business.
