Durst & Bersin’s precursor Firm was formed in 1990, when Andrew Bersin left this job as prosecutor in the Homicide Bureau of the Kings County District Attorney’s Office, and became a trial attorney. He met John Durst, and they formed a partnership, handling all kinds of trials, but specializing in personal injury, product liability, and medical malpractice cases. Claire Durst joined them, after having served as a law clerk for the Chief Judge of the Southern District of New York, and practicing in the area of family and commercial law.

Claire Durst and Andrew Bersin have continued the practice upon John Durst’s retirement. Andrew Bersin has over 40 years of experience in criminal and civil trials, and Claire Durst has over 40 years of experience in family law trials. Together, they are one of the most experienced partnerships in the state in their specialties.

Their combined trial experience enables them to provide expertise in a wide range of cases, including personal injury, product liability, medical malpractice, criminal defense, civil rights, family, matrimonial, custody, and commercial areas.

They only accept cases they truly believe in, so they can give full attention to every case they take.

They do not seek cases through the Internet, but rather get their cases through word-of-mouth and referrals from other attorneys and judges, so this page is maintained primarily as a means to contact the firm.
