Best Personal Injury Firm in Manhattan!
I emphatically give the Perecman Firm my highest recommendation! I suffered a personal injury as a result of negligence and contacted the Perecman Firm for help. I was given a free no strings attached consultation to determine if I had a case, which was a factor in why I chose the Perecman Firm to represent me. From the beginning of my case, I was kept informed regularly as things progressed. My attorneys were well prepared and as my case advanced, I felt increasingly confident in my choosing the Perecman Firm. I felt that Zach really cared about me and wanted to make sure that I got the best representation possible. I was accompanied by a Perecman attorney during my depositions and examinations and never felt lost or unsure about what was happening with my case. I developed a good rapport with Zach Perecman who handled the majority of my case while it was in the discovery phase, and also with David Perecman once a court date was secured. David and Zach were extremely well prepared for our court date, educating me on the judicial process as it pertained to my case, and thoughtfully explaining to me what would happen once we were in court and afterwards. As a result, I felt prepared for my court case and secure in the Perecman Firms ability to win my case. In the end, both Zach and David Perecman helped me win a settlement that was to my satisfaction and I would highly recommend the Perecman Firm to anyone looking for a professional personal injury Law Firm. The Perecman teams warmth and support made a potentially difficult experience for me a lot less painful.

The Perecman Firm
This firm is amazing, i work for UPS and was injured on the job. They took my case and took me step by step through the process of a workers comp claim and answered all my questions. When i reached out to them with a concern or question, they got back to me very fast, sometimes within minutes, especially Silvana, she is outstanding. If you get hurt on the job, especially at a big company like UPS, it can be intimidating to try and get what your intitled to, the Perecman firm takes the weight off your shoulders.

Wonderful Experience and Excellent Staff
I was referred by another attorney to David Perecman who told me he was very good at what he does. I met him and immediately thought he was a good guy and someone I could put my trust in. Throughout my case I saw how the whole office worked and saw that not just one person but the whole office assisted in my case, I saw a family effort. I never once questioned any of the work they did because thats how much I trusted everyone in the office, and in the end I was extremely happy with how my case turned out. I would absolutely send anyone who needed legal assistance to The Perecman Firm.
