There are few things in life more frightening than being arrested. And yet, on one cold Sunday morning that is exactly what happened to me! I was awoken by a loud rapping at my door. There stood three plainclothes policemen who greeted me with their badges and “suggested” that I accompany them to their precinct for questioning. The next thing I knew I was in handcuffs being hauled downtown to a holding cell where I would stay, awaiting my arraignment before a judge. I was being accused of a crime – a felony, no less – that I did not commit. In less than twenty-four hours, my life had been turned completely upside down. I was confused, frantic, and at my wits’ end.
Enter: Adam Perlmutter. Adam immediately saw my distress and calmed me down. He carefully listened to me, clearly explained the legal process, and then methodically laid out the strategy he would use to defeat the prosecution’s case. His reassuring manner and keen legal mind restored my confidence and gave me hope. Within a matter of months, my entire case was dismissed before it had ever really begun, and my dreadful ordeal was ended. For anyone faced with similar circumstances, I not only recommend Adam and his brilliant associate, Dan McGuinness, but regard these two lawyers as indispensible. I will forever be grateful to these gentlemen and the entire team at the Law Offices of Adam Perlmutter.
New York, NY
In October of 2012 I was pulled over by the NYPD and charged with an Aggravated DWI in New York City. I refused the breath test and took the case to trial. I needed to find an attorney and hired the law office of Mr. Adam Perlmutter to handle my case. Both he and Daniel McGuinness were great in helping me get through this, they always answered my calls, answered any questions I had, walked me trough, and held my hand every step of the way. In the end after several days of deliberations the jury found me not guilty and I was acquitted of the felony charges. I would recommend Adam and Daniel to anyone who needs a good team of lawyers. I am very grateful and would like to thank the both of them and their paralegals for doing a great job and helping me get through this hard time.
From the moment I entered the offices of Adam Perlmutter, I knew I was in good hands. His associate explained to me my options and put me at ease. During the long legal process, Adam and his staff kept me informed, and patiently listened to my rants about the slow pace of the legal system. When we went to trial, that was when Mr. Perlmutter was at his best, totally prepared and unearthing the smallests of details. He welcomed my input and put me at ease in my most troubled of times. His courtroom demeanor and acumen, quite frankly, made the prosecution look amatuerish. After watching the legal system at work, I can only say "thank God for Adam Perlmutter!"
Mr. Perlmutter was my legal counsel in a NYC DUI case I was involved in. Even though the case was dragged out by the courts for almost 2 years, Mr. Perlmutter remained vigilant and steadfast with the way he handled my case. He was very attentive to my needs and he was quick to respond to any questions that I had. This was especially important because I was a NJ resident fighting a NYC DUI. So there were many details we had to factor into my case. Mr. Perlmutter never gave me a reason to doubt myself and I upheld my plea of innocent. In the end, the case was dismissed but I always believed I would have won the case no matter what due to the representation provided by Mr. Perlmutter. Thank you again for the quality services you provided.
