When I was arrested for domestic violence in Van Nuys, my heart sunk in my throat. I was the one with scratch marks and a bloody lip. I didn't even touch her, but the cops listened to her and I made the mistake of saying that to get out of the apartment after she attacked me for stopping being affectionate to her I had to kind of push past her. When my Dad found Criminal Defense Attorney Daniel Perlman in his Hollywood office, we felt so much better. Mr. Perlman worked things out with the DA and they dismissed the charges. I dumped that B* and I am so fortunate to have found a great Defense Lawyer who knows his way around the Van Nuys Superior Court.

Daniel is the best criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles. I refer all of my friends and family to him. He has helped me with tons of legal advice and has helped 4 of my friends with their DUI cases. He takes the time to handle your case himself and you are not passed off to another attorney. Los Angeles is full of DUI attorneys and criminal lawyers, choosing Daniel to handle your case will be the best decision for your cases outcome.

We would like to express our respect and sincere gratitude to Daniel Perlman and his assistant Mathew Cohen at the Perlman Law Firm. Daniel have helped making our tough case possible to a good outcome. Before Perlman Law Firm, we met other firms but none of them was able to help us through our unique situation. He took care from the beginning to the end of the process in such a professional way. During one of the most anguished and distressed times in our life Daniel devoted his time and efforts to our cases by skillfully and prudently guided us through the maze to solution-oriented strategies and gave us all the help around the community he could give. With his tireless commitment and passion, Daniel turned challenges into opportunities. It is certainly rewarding to work with Daniel this exellent lawyer that never let us down. Thank you Daniel! “We will never forget you and what you did for us. We wish you and your staff success in your future endeavors! We most definitely will recommend Daniel and his partner if someone needs help in the future. Anyone who needs your help we are sure you will do your best to represent them. You are one of a kind.

Our experience with Daniel has been the best anyone could have. We feel lucky to have worked with him, by far the best attorney we have ever met. Daniel reviewed the case and told us exactly what might happen and what to expect. He is very intelligent and knowledgeable, organized, hard working, nice personality, very helpful, caring and the list could go on and on. He keeps you posted and is very easy to get a hold of. Daniel gives you the best advice and has some really helpful referrals to outside counseling as well. He has very high ethics at work, and he is very fair with his fees. Daniel took care of everything from beginning to end. Words are not enough to thank you Daniel for all you did for us. Thank you for going the extra mile!

When I found myself in a sticky situation related to a domestic violence charge I turned to the attorneys at Perlman Law. I was especially concerned since I too am an attorney and could have lost my law license with a charge relating to moral turpitude. My hand was held at every stage as my knowledge of criminal law is related to that which I learned in school. Matthew went to bat for me at every hearing, even personally going to the DAs office to talk to a supervisor after my original deal seemingly disappeared. I am happy to report that in the end my relationship is stronger than ever and my record is clean. Thanks for saving my career Law Office of Daniel Perlman.

Daniel and his team demonstrated outstanding professionalism when dealing with my case. As this was my first DUI and as I did not understanding the process, the 1st attorney I spoke with regarding representation did not make me comfortable regarding the matter. Daniel was the 2nd attorney I spoke with (referred by a former client) and he immediately made me confident regarding my situation.
During the entire process, Daniel and his team performed at a high level and kept me informed throughout. Daniel's negotiations with the prosecution proved extremely fruitful and the charges were reduced to a reckless driving.
I have and will continue to recommend friends to Daniel based on my experience.

I deal with Matthew at this firm regarding a history inquiry and he was incredibly helpful and efficient in finding out the information that was available.

I'm not exaggerating when I say Daniel changed our lives. My husband got a DUI, which triggered some INS issues. Not only was Daniel superb in dealing with the DUI, but he extended himself personally to help us in anyway he could with the INS issues. He is easily tops in his field, but more than that, he's the kind of lawyer that cares personally for his clients. He, and his entire staff, were responsive, even to the point of answering texts on Sunday nights!! Everything is settled now, but I shudder to think how things could have gone if we'd retained someone else.

Mr. Perlman's knowledge and expertise prevented me from losing my job, my house and even from going to prison. He took my case (a potentially 4th DUI), and got it dismissed from court. My family and I cannot thank Mr. Perlman enough for his defence with this matter and as I see it, basically giving me my life back. He is an excellent and honest defence attorney. Strongly recommended.

Daniel stepped into my issue before it reached the steps of the courthouse. He kept me informed, gave me concrete and valid information on the best way to handle my issue. My issue would have landed me in prison had I not taken heed to Daniel's advice. I strongly recommend him.

Mr. Perlman has been representing me now since Jan of 2010, and has yet to loose a battle for me. He has assisted me in more than one matter, always getting me the best results possible. Daniel has respectfully gotten one felony case completely dismissed as well as two misdemeanor cases reduced to simple infractions for me. He is definitely worth the financial jab in ones pocket! God forbid I get into any more trouble in the state of California he will with out a doubt be the person I run to.
If your in need of top quality representation and can afford it, I HIGHLY recommend Mr. Perlman. He is swift, charming, very knowledgeable, and accommodating. He listens to my concerns and will always go that extra mile to ensure that I get the very best outcome for my situation; I truly believe that this was no special treatment for me as I am most certain that he does this for all his clients.

I haven't personally needed Daniel's help, but I do know his expertise in his field is outstanding. Daniel is the kind of attorney you want on your side. I know that if I ever needed is legal guidance, I would be getting the best counsel I could ask for.

Mr Perlman has demonstrated a high regard for professionalisim and knowledge and shows true compassion for his clients well-being. In addition, Mr. Perlman relays the upmost respect for his clients thoughts and feelings. Counselor Perlman's in depth knowledge on case law along with his drive proved beneficial to me as I was facing a state prison sentence and Counselor Perlman was able to get that reduced significantly to a 9 month county jail term. I would highly recommend Daniel Perlman due to the reasons I stated above and due to my experience with him.

My experience with Daniel Perlman has been by far the best I have ever had with a lawyer. He reviewed my case and told me exactly what was going to happen. He took care of all the detail (court dates, paperwork). All I did was show up and go home!
Thank you for going beyond the call of duty.

With what I thought was going to be an absolute nightmare turned out to be a walk in the park. Daniel was very thorough in listening to the details of my case and asking questions. He kept me calm throughout the entire process. When in court, Daniel shined exploiting his experience and confidence. We won the case in 10 minutes.
