I recently had the privilege of working with Mr. Adam Perlmutter on a matter involving co- defendants. Adam is clearly at the top of his field in both Federal and State criminal defense matters. He demonstrates a powerful tactical approach to his cases that I appreciate - deep analysis, thorough planning, and confident execution. I look forward to working with him again and recommend him without reservation.

Adam Perlmutter cut his teeth as a prosecutor. In doing so, he learned the "ropes" about the the System and the Law and he armed himself to go out to DEFEND cases one day. He now enters each case with experience and an unparalleled background in criminal defense. What more could you want from an attorney? I recommend his legal services.
