    • I recommend Daniel Perlman.
    • I hired Daniel more than 3 years ago.
    • Daniel handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I hired Dan Perlman during my recent civil court case.

    My wife had obtained an Order of Protection, and was trying to have me excluded from our marital home—and worst of all, our 3 young children—for 2 years (the maximum allowable period).

    His representation was great: we took it to trial and prevailed—my wife’s petition was ultimately dismissed. Today, I have shared physical custody of our children, and I couldn’t be happier.

    Dan's service was first-rate. He continually apprised me of all my options—and was always aggressive, and capable.

    Most importantly, he was very understanding, and made me feel like my case was always manageable—which was exactly what I needed during one of the most stressful times of my life.

    I’d recommend Daniel Perlman's services to anyone in a similar situation.

    • I recommend Daniel Perlman.
    • I hired Daniel more than 3 years ago.
    • Daniel handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    When I run into domestic problems with my girlfriend and was locked out by her out of my own apartment. It was pretty desperate times.
    I turned to Craig list to find a lawyer in Midtown Manhattan, Dan was the only one who responded right away. He was incredibly helpful since, he negotiated very favorable settlement with the DA and I was back in my apartment within 3 months. I will highly recommend Dan and will certainly use him again when faced with legal problems

  3. When you need a lawyer to really help you.

    "As a separated (sole custodial) parent of four children, dealing with an ex-husband/parent not supporting the best interests of our kids, I needed a lawyer to represent me in a divorce proceeding."

    I met Mr. Perlman in 2005, since then he has been my attorney and friend through a very difficult two year divorce, through several Order of Protection matters, and again, in 2009 when I went back into court for Visitation and Child Support matters.

    Mr. Perlman was not just experienced, knowledgeable and familiar with situations similar to my own, but also was willing to listen to my concerns and wants, and was always willing to take the time out to educate me through the proces

    I was seeking child support from my ex-husband in a highly contested divorce. Daniel was fluent in the law and helped me win a substantial settlement.
    I was grateful that Daniel was calm, understanding and knowledgeable.

    During my divorce, I needed to relocate with my young daughter to NH but I was concerned that the court would not allow me to move. Mr. Perlman always returned my phone calls promptly and provided me with excellent counsel. I got the results I wanted.

    Dan has been representing me on numerous family court issues specifically custody, child support and dealing with ACS. 4 years ago I had no where to turn after dealing with 3 different attorneys facing a dire situation. Dan met with me immediately and took the time to listen, analyze and hit the ground running to protect my rights. Dan has represented me over 15+ times in court most of which have positive results. I've refered him to family and friends and now consider him a good friend. Most attorney experiences are extremely painful but dealing with Dan is smooth and effortless! He is also is great at criminal law as well....
