Michael Berger, Treasurer

Michael Berger has spent 29 years as a trial lawyer and 17 years as an ALJ. He brings integrity, a keen sense of fairness, and an acutely rich sense of humor to his role as one of Resolution Remedies’ finest mediators. Complex and highly publicized cases have been his specialty, having successfully represented 52 People’s Temple survivors; Chinatown’s Hop Sing Tong Benevolent Association’s involvement in the notorious Golden Dragon massacre; as well as having Sausalito’s flamboyant and irrepressible madam-turned-Mayor, Sally Stanford for a client. Since his appointment to the bench, Judge Berger has developed a particular expertise in employment law and wrongful termination, complementing his broad personal injury experience. In addition to legal and medical malpractice matters, Judge Berger's expertise includes partnership dissolution, premises liability, wrongful death, products liability, and commercial litigation. Judge Berger brings a relaxed and knowledgeable mediation style to the matter at hand. His integrity and fairness in the handling of disputes has produced numerous settlements.
