An Advocate You Can Trust
Thanks for taking the time to view our website. By way of introduction let me tell you about myself; I am the son of a Navy Submariner and was born in Keywest, Florida. Moving from Florida I attended school from Groton, Connecticut to Monterey, California.
Kempsville High and VMI
Graduating from Kempsville High School in 1976 and the Virginia Military Institute in 1980; Upon graduation from VMI, I spent 4 years on active duty in the U.S. Navy. Following active duty I spent 16 years as an active reservist and retired at the rank of Commander.
After leaving active duty I utilized my Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering and became a practicing licensed Professional Engineer for several years. Following a successful career as an engineer, Regent University awarded me a Law degree in 2005. I initially practiced as a Patent Attorney in the Washington, DC area before returning to Tidewater and opening Berkhimer Law, PC.
Opening my practice in 2008 with the tagline of “All Things Family!” I have had the pleasure of combining my love of helping folks with making a living! Since 2008 we have worked with hundreds of families in the areas of custody and visitation, bankruptcy, divorce, child support, juvenile criminal law and serving as a Guardian ad Litem. In those various capacities our firm takes pride in what has been accomplished over the last several years in our practice of Family Law.
While serving others the single most defining point in my life was in 2004 when my wife, Lynn, and I suffered the loss of her son Brent who was a rising senior at Kempsville High School. Brent’s loss brought home to us the existence of tragedy in everyday life – tragedy that literally takes your breath away. As you may already know, be it in your own lives or that of others, tragedy comes in many forms.
