A founding partner of Pfarr & Rethore, Bernie has been practicing law for over 20 years, and focuses his efforts on trying to help people navigate their way through the intricacies of a personal injury claim. “I strive to make the experience as easy as I can, and to talk to clients in plain English so that they can understand the challenges of a claim, and make decisions based on the pros and cons of particular circumstance.” Bernie prides himself on being accessible, and developing long term friends he also calls clients.

Bernie has handled several thousand personal injury matters.

When not working, Bernie enjoys watching his three children grow up, playing golf, skiing, and being an amateur vinophile and collector.
