Attorney Berg approaches law and legal practice as he approaches the world. He measures and observes each situation and uses a minimalist approach so that a client’s case will not require more and more litigation.
Being a good lawyer requires being a good person first. Attorney Berg believes he has more to offer clients by being a good listener, traveling all over the world, and reading outside his field. Almost no one wants a legal technician or robot who knows “law” but who has little sense, personality or perspective in life.
Attorney Berg understands how faulty communication and sloppy thinking cause many of life’s problems. A way for a lawyer to help solve this is to put people’s perceptions and communications “in sync.” It can also be helpful sometimes to notice fallout and blowback, and have some good idea as to when to “re-boot” whether by scratching a project or putting the crying infant down for a nap.
Attorney Berg is not moved by sad tales of disability. Problems can be opportunities to learn and hard work and attentiveness can be enough to generate good luck. He has a desire to discern patterns where others only notice noise or find annoyance.
Flamboyant lawyers who want to “tear up the world” to win their cases are less inclined to notice jewels and valuables among the recycled bits of old marriages and sundered relationships or to find redeeming value in misfortune and “bad luck.” The steadier and less showy lawyers will have a broader perspective and use such things as chaos theory, art history, geography, economics, biology and music as part of their everyday practice. This more gentle approach is what you will find with Attorney Berg.
