Calmed my fears
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.

lots of attention for our 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.

Strong Advocate and Communicator
Brian was my attorney during my very difficult and lengthy divorce. He is very good where the law is concerned explaining all the pros and cons of each option. Mostly, he is a very good human being. Getting divorced is no picnic. Brian's knowledge, kindness and compassion got me through to the other side.
