Testimonials

I feel incredibly lucky to have found Katie Bertram! Lawsuits are complicated, intimidating, and drawn out – especially during this COVID era. Throughout my case, Katie and her team were unfailingly communicative, honest, patient, and compassionate. Katie’s vast expertise, gathered from having worked on both sides of malpractice, really shines through. She expertly led me through every step in the process and helped me understand what the other side was likely thinking as well as all of my reasonable options and their likely outcomes. With Katie as my advocate, I was equipped to make the best possible decision. No outcome would ever feel like enough, but thanks to Katie I believe my case saw the best possible conclusion.

It’s not easy to lose a loved one. More so, it weighs very heavy when they fall victim to medical malpractice. It’s unfathomable. Unable to speak full sentences, I called Catherine and her team. They listened, practiced patience, stood up for me, reached out to me during those challenging holidays, and they dedicated their mission in helping me to move towards closure and peace. No amount of money will ever replace your loved one but the consistent support, servility, empathy, and sedulous gestures are priceless. Catherine, thank you and your team for helping me to find that closure and that peace that I thought I’d never be able to find. God bless you all.
I highly recommend Catherine and her amazing team, should you experience medical malpractice!

As the victim in a medical malpractice case, I strongly recommend Bertram Law Group’s Katie Bertram and Heather Kelly. They worked hard on my case and consistently updated my wife and I during the process. They took the time to answer our questions.

Lawsuits are complicated and intimidating for the inexperienced, but with a mix of compassion and humor, they quickly put us at ease. They were dedicated, friendly, professional, experienced, and driven. Their extraordinary efforts led to a settlement that was more than we expected.

We are extremely grateful to Katie and her team! If you want the best medical malpractice representation, call Katie and her team at Bertram Law Group.

We enjoyed working with Bertram Law Group, they were really nice and kind and they got us a settlement and that’s what we needed for marcus’s future so we were pretty happy with them and I would definitely recommend them.

If someone came to me and asked would I recommend Katie to represent them or their family, I would wholeheartedly endorse her, and I use the word heart intentionally because she’s got a big heart, I don’t think she took on her case just because it was a paycheck, again, I believe that she genuinely believed in the cause thought my wife had been wronged and wanted to help you know right that wrong.

- Client

Not only did you and Heather listen and was attentive to our questions and issues, both of you were skillful, and diligent in bringing about the conditions that were resolved much to our satisfaction.  We will always remember you and Heather including Melissa Rhea as our attorneys who exhibited sincere concern, justification, welfare, and kindness, and most importantly, the representation of myself, and my wife.

Your presentation, advice, and our questions that were discussed in our introduction meeting, conference calls, and emails were answered with a concise response including the mediation meeting that set the tone for the successful settlement that ensued.  We are very happy to have known you, Heather, Melissa, and the team of professionals in your firm.

“From the first time I spoke to Catherine, she was extreamly passionate about her job and it radiates of her. This was a huge factor for me as I wanted a real human being not just a heartless firm looking for a quick payout. It was a very smooth process. I was able to send over my medical records for an in-depth evaluation by her medical experts. I believe that it was a pretty quick turn around time for this. Once she was able to verify the medical malpractice via the medical records, this is when she got down to business. Catherine had a very fast response time to file the claim with the military and demand answers for my sheer lack of medical care over the course of 37 months. She also found the right medical experts to help me go against the clinic that made me suffer. We went through countless attempts of the military trying to dismiss my issues. She always was one step ahead of the trickery that they were trying to pull. I believe that while I am unable to get the days I lost due to the malpractice at the hands of the military, Catherine and her team of experts were able to get a more than generous settlement for what my family and I had to endure. If you have any doubt whether she is the right fit for your legal issues, I am here to say do not hesitate to go with her. I am so very grateful that I found her. I think that she truly cares about the person in her cases and this is something nowadays that is so hard to find. Thank you Katie from the bottom of my heart for representing me through this horrible time in my life and turning so many negatives in to a positive. With the settlement, I was able to get I can rebuild what was taken from us. Thank you a thousand times! I hope you will never ever have to represent me again in a situation like this but if ever do I find myself in a situation like this I would never hesitate to go with you.”

“Excellent, she explained all the process and and she did all she said she would do. I recommend her because she is a GOOD lawyer.”

- Client

“I normally don’t write reviews but felt compelled to. Ms. Bertram took my highly complicated case. She was caring; the most caring attorney I’ve ever met. I’m not only a past client but a paralegal and when Ms. Bertram takes on a case she gives it her all!!!”

- Client

“We were involved in an unfortunate and rather unique accident. We initially worked with another lawyer and became unsatisfied. We were extremely fortunate to have been referred to Ms. Bertram by a close friend. Discouraged with our situation, we approached her about our case. Ms. Bertram was incredible. She was knowledgeable and sharp as well as kind and compassionate. We were consistently impressed by her abilities and comfortable working with her throughout the case. She was always responsive to any questions or concerns we voiced. Ms. Bertram was instrumental in refocusing our efforts and bringing us to a more than acceptable resolution. We can honestly say it is hard to imagine having gotten through the ordeal of our case without her guidance and expertise.”

- Client

“Ms. Bertram is an “attorney’s attorney”. I have been an attorney and a law professor for over 20 years. She handled a matter for me with remarkable professionalism and achieved remarkable results. I have had a number of attorneys over the years. I have also taught thousands of law students. She is by far the best attorney I have ever worked with.”

Catherine together with her magical team would always keep me up to date with the case’s progress and answer all my questions in a timely manner. They were never too busy to answer my calls. Catherine is dedicated to winning the cases for her clients. She is OUTSTANDING.”

- Client

“I was in a car accident. EMS did not follow protocols. She worked well with my established doctors. Really looked out for me. A great lawyer who cares. They really exist.”

- Client

“As an attorney with over 30 years of experience myself, I truly appreciate working with counsel with genuine subject matter expertise, common sense logic, hands-on court room experience and responsive communications! Katie, her partner and team were exceptional in every way. Having a very limited understanding of medical malpractice, I knew I needed a learned med/mal practitioner to guide me through a recent series of disputes related to medical care I had received. From the start I was impressed with the depth and commitment by Betram & Amell as my advocates. I felt fully informed at all times. My views were solicited and considered. And the entire legal matter was handled with an impressive degree of cost effectiveness! The outcome was everything I had hoped for and could reasonably expect and far better than if I had foolishly tried to handle the matter myself. Katie was exceptional and I highly recommend her based upon my experience working with her over the past year!”
