Attorney Daniel J. Berman
Born in Moses Lake, Washington, September 24, 1959
I have been practicing law for over thirty (30) consecutive years in Hawaii, Micronesia, Guam and Florida. My clients come from Guam, mainland USA and international locations for services in and out of Courtrooms throughout Guam and Micronesia. The client’s needs always come first.

Practice Focus


I maintain a general litigation and business practice, including both transactional and litigation matters, and represent on a regular basis clients with business disputes, personal injuries, contract issues, landlord tenant, admiralty and maritime matters. In addition, my practice includes domestic and divorce, quiet title and real property cases.
