About me

Who I Am:

I am a personal injury and construction accident attorney based in New York City. As a trial lawyer, I love to battle it out in the courtroom for my clients, and I’m honored to have been recognized for that. I have received distinctions from organizations such as The Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, National Law Journal's Hall of Fame, The Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and Law Dragon.


As a lawyer who represents the injured and the wronged, my greatest source of pride isn’t in my awards or recognitions – although I am honored to have received those. My greatest source of pride lies in being able to change the lives of accident victims at a time when they need help the most. There is nothing quite like seeing a smile restored to an accident victim’s face. When everything is said and done, changing my clients’ lives for the better is what it’s all about.  


The New York State Trial Lawyers Association frequently asks me to lecture on construction accident law due to my experience in this field, and I am the Chair of their Labor Law Committee. In this capacity, I spread awareness about construction workers’ rights and fight to keep the laws that protect them strong.


Who I Help:

I help the injured, the wronged, and the families of those who lost loved ones due to negligence. I take on cases because I believe in that individual and their cause, so I fight for justice on their behalf. My areas of practice include construction accidents, medical malpractice, auto accidents, trucking accidents, slip and falls, police brutality, civil rights violations, workers’ compensation, and other types of serious injuries.


How I Help:

More than 30 years of trials and appellate arguments have resulted in dozens of multi-million dollar results for my clients, many of which The New York Law Journal lists in their Top Verdicts in New York.

The understanding of one important truth sets my firm and me apart: the client comes first. When a client comes to me, I know that they have just been through a terrible experience, so I treat them the way I would want to be treated during such a difficult time.



Time and again, The Perecman Firm proves to achieve great results in cases where that seems difficult or even unlikely. We never take the easy way out, and I believe our clients benefit from that. If you have any questions or would like to speak with me about your case, give me a call at (212) 577-9325.
