About Us

Serving Vermont Workers Since 1988

Located in the heart of Shelburne Village, Talbott Berman, PLC is proud to serve the needs of injured workers throughout the State of Vermont. We direct our focus towards the needs of injured workers and providing representation in workers compensation cases. Our experience, knowledge and connections to the community, and focus on services, needs and strategy in a worker’s compensation claim, sets us apart from other general practice law firms or firms that handle only a few workers’ compensation cases.

We have a spacious, new office designed for handicap accessibility and with the needs of professional mediation in mind. Although located in the small town of Shelburne, VT, we are serious about protecting the interests of clients all over Vermont, largely from towns like St. Albans, Milton, Burlington, Shelburne, and other towns in Franklin, Chittenden, Montpelier and Addison Counties.
