  • Brian Charles Perlin

    I have worked with Bart on three separate cases. My office is in Florida, however, whenever, I have a case in New York City I have referred the matter to Bart. He is very professional and his work has been perfect. I would not hesitate to recommend him for an estate planning, guardianship or probate issue.
