About Berman & Simmons

The story of Berman & Simmons began in 1914 when Benjamin Berman hung a shingle on Lisbon Street in Lewiston, Maine. Berman and his brother David became known as trusted advocates for the men and women who worked at the city's many textile mills and shoe factories. Their commitment to working Mainers and their willingness to take on the most complex and controversial cases remain hallmarks of the firm today. Over time, Berman & Simmons has evolved from a general practice firm to a more specialized statewide plaintiff's trial law firm with a focus on personal injury, medical malpractice, wrongful death, defective products, defective drugs and medical devices, and winning complex cases where our team's expertise and unmatched skills make all the difference. As powerful advocates for civil justice, we are dedicated to fighting tirelessly on behalf of those who have been injured through no fault of their own. With 18 lawyers, Berman & Simmons is widely recognized as the best personal injury law firm in Maine. Indeed, we work tirelessly everyday to be not just the best trial firm in Maine, but one of the very best in the country. We have won some of the largest medical malpractice and personal injury verdicts in Maine history. In fact, two of our firm's landmark cases have been recognized in The National Law Journal's Top 100 Verdicts. In many other cases, we have succeeded in advancing Maine laws that, in turn, have helped ensure access to justice for all Mainers. Our attorneys have been elected as Fellows of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers and serve on the American Board of Trial Advocates and the American Association for Justice. We have received special recognition from the leading guides to America's top attorneys and litigation firms, including America's Top 100 Attorneys, The Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, Benchmark Litigation, Chambers and Partners, Martindale-Hubbell, and the exclusive Inner Circle of Advocates.
