After my car accident I was unsure of what my options were and what actions I could take. Lake provided guidance and was very thorough. He was understanding and patient and I can't thank him enough for how he's helped me. I would recommend his services to anyone!

Lake was very helpful in guiding me through the steps needed to facilitate my divorce, he made it comfortable, easy and with minimal drama, I can't say how much I appreciate how he made himself available 24hrs by phone and over a weekend, I would defiantly recommend his services to friends and family.

Lake lead the way to help me get rights back to a book I'd written. When I came to him, I'd been unsuccessful on my own. He knew exactly which route to take, what to say and how to handle it. Within two weeks, he had was successful in re-securing these rights.

Mr. Perriguey has been a wonderfully attentive attorney in multiple business transactions. He is intelligent, resourceful and not afraid of breaking new ground if it serves his clients, and the law. I recommend him to friends and business cohorts and will continue to utilize his services when the needs arise. Mr. Perriguey is an essential part of my team as a small business person.

I first consulted with Mr Perriquey due to my exhusband threatened he wasn't going to transfer the deed to our property to me which was part of our divorce agreement. Another propety settlement in the divorce decree was for a monthly payment that was not being honored. Mr Perriquuey suggested that he approach my ex husband first in discussion. Even though I offered to put the amount needed in a retainer to start court proceeders. As my ex was nonresponsive we eventually took the matter to court. At this point I was also able to receive an increase in child support.

The first time I spoke to Lake he was out of town on vacation. That did not stop him from being a compassionate and inquisitive attorney who really heard me out with interest and dedication, even over the phone.
I called Lake to handle a case involving discrimination. I was a student teacher at an Elementary School in the Beaverton School District and was fired for responding honestly to a student that I am gay. When he decided to take on my case, he went an extra mile, often checking on my well-being as well as functioning as an attorney. His manner is very professional yet outspoken; unafraid to challenge giants, Lake was instrumental in helping me seek justice as well as cause active social change for greater equality. Together we were able to make the Beaverton School District rewrite their non-discrimination policy to include sexual orientation and gender expression protection. Beyond that, they drafted into the policy a statement that says that this protection extends to teachers, interns, students...anybody on a Beaverton School District campus. It also calls for anyone on one of these campuses to call out discrimination if they see it, making schools themselves agencies of equality that are for social justice.
Lake is incredibly smart. He has this uncanny ability to read people and situations strategically when necessary, but also with great tact.
I have never had a lawyer before Lake, but from my experience he is, without a doubt in my mind, one of the best in Portland.

Lake Perriguey is stickler for details, and details are important in litigation cases.
I've utilized Lake's expertise many times, and would never consider going to anyone but him, when I have a legal matter to resolve.
I highly recommend Lake Perriguey to be your attorney. You will be glad that you contacted him!

If you are looking for an excellent lawyer and you are reading this look no more. Lake has helped me over the last two years for various matters and I have found him to be the best friend you could have in any legal situation. He possesses the skill to analyze and maneuver through all the complex issues will lead you to the best possible outcome. The customer service Lake provides is unheard of and he will respond immediately with all your concerns. I cannot emphasize enough how much integrity he has. Lake is old school in this catagory and he will watch your money as if it was his own. He was able to provide me with a settlement that exceeded what I thought I would get and there were no missed steps on his part along the way. He will fight for your rights and always tries to keep the drama level low. If he cannot help you he will tell you straight up. I cannot express enough how good he is in every sense of the word

Lake has provided me with personal and professional legal advice for over ten years. He has a deep concern for the well being of his clients and prioritizes strategies that are practical, fair and successful.
His integrity is beyond reproach and he takes a real interest in his clients.
He has deep roots in the Portland community and knows where to turn when additional resources or counsel is necessary.
I'm confident that you'll have a positive experience with this lawyer.

I first sought Mr. Perriguey's counsel in the matter of a personal injury settlement. From the onset of the legal process, he was honest and professional. He kept me apprised of the situation at each step and was very clear about our lawyer / client contract. The final settlement was fair and met my original expectations. I have also relied on Mr. Perriguey's legal counsel for a variety of personal finance issues. He is dependable, extraordinarily efficient and a pleasure to work with. HIGHLY recommended.

The legal field was not an easy or friendly arena and to enter into it without knowledge of how to find a good lawyer much less a great one was beyond my capabilities in the beginning. After hiring my first mistake of a lawyer and then hearing about Mr. Perriguey, well, I just cannot say enough about Lake.
I have never meet a lawyer that stood for what he thought was right and always did what he said he would. If I ever need a lawyer again for anything my first and only choice would be Mr. Perriguey.
He was always honest with me and because of my financial situation he held within the budget allotted without weakening the structure of my case.
He is tenacious, honorable and to the best of my knowledge is someone who truly enjoys working with the law. He may not have known everything there was to know about corporate law yet that did not deter him from finding the right answers and find the right answers he did.
I was never in the dark about my case or what was going on with the opposing side. He was never lazy in sending emails, scanned letters or notices of telephone calls to my computer or calling me when it was needed.
I could go on and on about him and his work ethics and humanitarianism's, yet I will not. He is simply the best one for the money, for the fighter I needed and for the protector I required while standing in a 'field' I knew nothing about and felt so insecure.

If you are looking for an honest dedicated attorney to handle your case look no further. Lake Perriguey represented me in my family matter and did an outstanding job. Lake was lightning fast returning my phone calls and emails, even at all hours of the night. I don't think he ever sleeps. He LISTENED to what I had to say and was never dismissive about my thoughts or ideas surrounding the case. I felt like he took my case personally, and he worked HARD for me. I can't say enough about this man. His dedication and professionalism is beyond words. Lake KNOWS THE LAW! He always kept me informed through my entire case, and I knew what to expect. If there was something happening with my case I knew within minutes. I was copied on all motions and briefs. My previous attorney didn't return phone calls, dismissed what I had to say, and I never knew what was going on. When I hired Lake it was like a breath of fresh air, and he was less expensive too! It was the best move I ever made. I highly recommend attorney Lake Perriguey. With Lake you are not just another client. He will take on your case and treat it as his own. I have recommended Lake to my friends and they have all had similar experiences as mine. He is simply the BEST!
