Brian represented me in two important cases. To me, there's no better recommendation than the fact that he devised winning strategies in both cases, which were well executed. Furthermore, he's professional, responsive, and easy to work with. He also has an excellent team of associates. His rates are reasonable for the value. I would use Brian as my attorney again for most matters.

If you're thinking of divorce or in the midst of one, do yourself a favor and hire brian and his group of lawyers. They're empathetic, no nonsense and have your best interest at heart. You'll feel better knowing that someone has your back.

I'd recommend Mr. Perskin and his firm in a heartbeat to anyone who's dealing with these issues. They're amazing. My husband decided to sneak attack divorce on me and I thought I was doomed till I retained Brian. Right now, my divorce is on "hiatus", as my husband got the shock of his life by Brian when he saw all of the filings. I don't know if we will stay married forever but I do know what's right and what isn't. The thing is, brian didn't do anything outrageous, he just did what was right and legal. He and is team are so smart and savvy. He is a real human being and so is Susannah. They won't bs you and will tell you when to get a grip. If you don't want to get the runaround, I'd recommend them in a second.

My ex-boyfriend was doing drugs and still expecting to see our kids due to the visitation arrangement. He said I couldn’t do anything to stop that despite evidence of the drugs. I proved him wrong when I got brian’s help making sure my ex could not see the kids without supervision.

My ex-husband was useless after 3 years of marriage. He refused to get a job and he wouldn’t watch the baby when I worked. When I decided to end it, I knew I needed a good lawyer because I definitely wanted custody. That’s exactly what I got when I hired Brian Perskin and his team. And it will be even better when my ex-husband finally get a job so he can start paying child support!

I wanted a postnuptial agreement with my husband and when we went to this firm we were very confident this lawyer knew what he was doing. We did end up getting the agreement done and it was pretty easy. God forbid we ever divorce I know which firm to go to.

All I know is Brian gave me the comfort I sought regarding my child custody case. He believed in me when no one else did and because of that I was able to get my son out of a bad situation at his mom’s house. I hope I never need his help again with child custody but if I do I will take it!

I had a really complex situation involving my daughter from a previous marriage. Brian counseled me about it and gave me some peace of mind and told me the next step to take. Even his staff was welcoming the minute I walked into the firm, letting me rest assured I’m in good hands.

I own a small business and was worried what effect my divorce would have on it. Brian and his team assured me I would not lose it all to my wife, who felt like she deserved to take most of the business I worked so hard for. Now I can rest assured that divorce does not have to mean bankruptcy for business owners.

I got my divorce over with and didn’t even have to go to court like I had feared. We were about to work out a good parenting plan and I think that’s all thanks to my lawyer Brian Perskin. I would recommend him and his staff since they got done what I needed.

When my husband left me, I had no money and no way to support my son since I no longer had access to our account. I knew I needed fast help so I went to brian perskin and asked about my options. He calmed some of my fears and helped me get started with temporary child support so I could at least buy food while the divorce was complete. I would have had nothing without his help so I am grateful!

My wife left me, but I want to make sure I can still see my son regularly. I went to Brian Perskin for help and he has given me hope that I can get shared custody. He reassured me that women don’t always automatically get full custody anymore, so I’m grateful I chose a lawyer with this pro-father attitude.

I have actually hired this firm a few times for family law help. Once it was a prenuptial agreement, which went very smoothly. I then got divorced and needed a lawyer who could get the case over with quickly, especially since I had the prenup. Now I am about to get married again and am again insisting on a prenup, and I am using this firm to get everything squared away. I always feel comfortable here, and confident in the staff’s ability to help me.

I needed to make sure I would get to see my 2 sons regularly after the divorce since my wife said she wanted full custody. I didn’t know what this would mean for me, but Brian D Perskin and Associates cleared up my questions and is now representing me. It’s good to know what my rights as a dad are, and now I know my wife cannot keep my sons from me.

I married a girl who had a son before we got married. Over the years I got attached to him as his step-dad. Now she is trying to keep him from me after the divorce saying I have no rights because I’m not his real father. The team at Brian D Perskin & Associates P.C. is helping me right this wrong since from what I have seen they actually protect father’s rights.

I’m thinking of divorcing my wife. Things just haven’t felt right for years, but I didn’t even know where to begin. My buddy suggested Brian D. Perskin & Associates since this firm helped with his divorce. I have been in brief contact with him so far and if all goes well, he will be my lawyer so I can get out of a marriage that has no future. So far so good.

I have a prenuptial agreement with my wife since I always suspected she had it in her to try to take my money in a divorce. I guess I was right because she is tryin to say the agreement was signed under duress or something like that. I talked to Brian about her odds of getting it overturned and he let me know we can fight back and that I can probably hold onto my money. I am gearing up for a battle with her in court if she pursues this, and it is good to know I have a good, confident lawyer on my side.

my ex gf is not letting me see the kids suddenly so I think its time to get a court order for visitation. I don’t know how this works exactly, so I wanted to hire an attorney. Brian agreed that I need to get something in writing to make sure I get to see the kids regularly. I feel confident now that the visitation issues will be solved soon.

I needed a lawyer in New York with experience handling gay divorce. There are not many, and I disliked the first lawyer I visited. Brian was the second, and I was pleased with the welcoming attitude of him and his team. I also liked that it was easy to get an appointment at the time I wanted.
Posted by Trish, a Divorce client, Flag
My ex-husband tried to get full custody of our 2 kids after we already had agreed that I would get them. That’s when I knew I needed a lawyer. Brian Perskin and his staff have been so supportive and helpful so far. They always sound happy to see me, and I can usually get an appointment to talk to my lawyer pretty quickly. I don’t feel alone in this anymore.

My wife was claiming she would automatically get full custody of our 3 kids, so I called Brian Perskin for a consultation. His advice eased my mind a bit, and now I know my wife is just using scare tactics to get her way, as usual. At least now I know my options, and I’m confident that I can still see my kids after divorce.

I was going through an amicable divorce but had some questions about my situation. Brian and his staff answered me quickly, and I was glad I met with him since now my husband has changed his mind about a few issues. It seems like this divorce will not be easy after all, so it’s time to hire a lawyer, and I know just who that will be!

This firm calmed my many fears about my impending divorce. I never thought I’d be in this situation, but after my husband cheated, its all I can do. A girlfriend used this firm for her divorce last year, so I gave it a chance. I have to say I’m glad I did since I now have a lawyer I feel I can trust, based on what I’ve heard. At least I can cross that off my list of things to do before my divorce gets started.

My ex-girlfriend wouldn’t let me see my kids, so I retained the services of brian perskin’s office. My hope was to keep this out of court so the kids wouldn’t have to witness a trial, and my wishes came true when we got it all settled outside of court. But I could tell brian was prepared to go to court if we needed to, and I appreciate that.

I own a business and was worried about if my wife would end up with everything I worked hard for. I went to Brian Perskin to find out some answers. His responses assured me that my worst fears about losing my business were unfounded, and that he could help me negotiate or even go to court if we had to. We’re still working it out, but so far I am confident in his abilities and thankful for his help.

This lawyer is AWESOME. I’m now a single parent who needs help with figuring out child custody & support issues. Fortunately, I had Brian perskin and his team on my side. I really appreciated how he held my hand during all the motions, and calmed me down through the whole process. He expertly handled all my panicked phone calls and emails, and he was able to explain the process to me in terms I could understand. I doubt I’ll need help from a family lawyer again, but if I do, I know I’d return in a heartbeat.

This lawyer and his entire staff were so kind and knowledgeable about family law. They all helped me get answers to my questions when possible, and I appreciate that. Even though a few of the staff weren’t working on my particular case, they answered what they could, and then referred me to someone who could give me the answers I needed. The quick responses really helped me not lose sleep over nagging questions during my case.

I can’t think of a bad thing to say about my experience with Brian D. Perskin. This lawyer is really committed to the legal field, and it shows. He also cares for every client. During the divorce, I felt the concern he had for me and my children as we tried to leave a bad situation. I really think he gave my case his full attention, and it was that extra effort that helped me get the results I was hoping for.

my husband has custody of the kids for now but I get visitation. when he was not cooperating with the visitation rules, I went to Brian for help. I’m not sure what he said to my husband’s lawyer, but I just know he is now cooperating with the agreement so I get to see the kids now. If I ever have problems with my soon to be ex again, I know what firm I will use.

I felt my son and I were in danger from my husband after we separated. Brian Perskin and his staff got me a restraining order. My case is complicated and it isn’t over yet, but I feel safer already, and I am pretty sure we are on the right track now. Things are looking for up for us, and I think it wouldn’t be possible with my lawyer.
Posted by Maria, a Divorce client, Flag
My ex-husband told me I would never make it without him since he was the breadwinner. Thanks to Brian D Perskin’s office, I am doing very well on my own, with all the alimony and child support I need to raise my kids. I never could have imagined I’d be able to be done with my ex’s attitude, which was bringing me down, without being homeless.

The moment he got the retainer money, he disappeared. On the court day, he arrived empty-handed. He was totally unprepared nor did he remember how much I was seeking. His lack of professionalism and ethical conducts was appalling. No one should hire this lawyer. In fact, I am suing him.
Posted by Will, a Child Custody client, Flag
Hired brian for my custody case, without getting into to many details.
On more than one occasion he was late more than 2 hours and does not give a call to say so. Then the final straw was when he did not show up to court at all. No calls from him or his office.
Might as well just burn your money instead.
Your typical douche

I've been through a lengthy process, working with Brian, and he's shown himself to be experienced, helpful and compassionate. I initially consulted with him, to get a roadmap to how the process would work. His advice the first hour turned out to be on the mark.
Going forward, dealing with a difficult and unpredictable negotiation, his experience with the court process and the particularities has been key. Mine has been a difficult negotiation, and Brian's experience with many similar and comparable cases has afforded me good perspective.
In short, he's been a prince and I'm grateful.
