STEPHEN J. BERK is, first and foremost, a skilled litigator and presence in the courtroom. By analyzing every case as if it will need to go to trial, most cases are resolved without the need for one. If trial is necessary, he simply out-prepares his opponent and gets his clients the outcome they demand. After 25 years “in the trenches” from municipal court through juvenile, state and superior court and up to the Georgia Supreme Court, his wins are consistent. His clients are everyone: the stay at-home mom, the blue collar worker, the entrepreneur, the doctor, other lawyer colleagues as well as their children and parents. 

For most people calling Stephen, they are having a bad moment and a difficult time. A free phone consultation may be all the situation demands. When more is required, an office conference is available and after-hours and weekend appointments are possible. The best civil litigators have Stephen’s criminal litigation background. From criminal defense to high-conflict divorce and custody litigation, Stephen gets results. When he knows the trial court has made an error, he successfully reverses cases in the appellate courts. In our litigious world, sometimes opponents do not play fair. Stephen has sought and obtained frivolous litigation attorney’s fees awards for his clients. 

Even when not in the courtroom for his clients, his legal skills and opinions can be seen throughout metro Atlanta and beyond. He gives frequent commentary on Court TV and can be seen teaching and assisting the next generation through Moot Court competitions, the Boy Scouts of America and coaching youth sports. He is a member of the Georgia Trial Lawyers Association, the Georgia Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers and other voluntary bar associations and is admitted to practice in Georgia and New York. Sometimes winning is the only option. Stephen’s tireless advocacy and working with a network of professionals gets that done.
