Client Testimonials


Heather McPhee, Associate General Counsel for the NFL Players Association

Barbara Berens and her staff at Berens & Miller have provided the members of the NFL Players Association (the labor union for all NFL players) with truly outstanding legal service for several years. When the members of the NFLPA faced a lockout in 2011, Barbara played a crucial role as the lead local counsel in a vital federal lawsuit; her combination of legal talent and knowledge of the federal court bench in Minneapolis yielded immense benefits for our strategy. In subsequent years, we have engaged Barbara to work on high profile individual player matters. In every case, her extraordinary intelligence and warm, insightful personality resulted in both outstanding work product, as well as experiences for both in-house counsel and player-clients that engendered confidence and rendered stressful situations far less so! Barbara is an extraordinary lawyer and person; the NFLPA is proud to have her as a member of our team.

Barrett Burns, VantageScore Solutions, LLC President and CEO

Berens & Miller began in 2006 as our litigation counsel due to a federal lawsuit filed in Minnesota by our competitor, FICO, in an effort to shut down our company. Barbara Berens and Justi Rae Miller were terrific counsel in handling the difficult nature of our business along with successfully winning at every stage of the litigation. They are extraordinarily responsive to our requests and thorough in their legal work, which impressed me so much that once the litigation was complete, we hired the firm as our corporate counsel and have been thrilled with their representation.
