Amazing outcome
From the beginning, he was honest & caring. Took the time to listen to what we wanted and gave us an honest answer with multiple outcomes. Always returned calls for questions and kept us up to date as far as what's going on. From getting charges dropped to AMAZING results! If you didn't know Brian Perry is the MAN! We have so much respect & love for him- He saved a father from being away from his sons and future wife! Thank you Brian, for an off the charts job well done! You NEVER disappoint. We'll always be thinking of you! Stay safe and keep up the GREAT work you do!

Brian Perry is a great attorney!
Brian Perry is a fair, friendly, and talented attorney. He performed well beyond my expectations. He did exactly what he said he would do. He didn’t drag my case on to collect extra fees from me. He was reasonably priced for my situation and well worth every dollar paid. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

The Best!
Attorney Brian Perry is an exceptional attorney and consumate professional. From start to finish, Mr. Perry was thorough and responsive, keeping us informed throughout a highly complex legal matter involving a mandatory state prison sentence. Mr. Perry's depth of legal knowledge and expertise were critical to the resolution of the case, which saw the charges downgraded and jail/prison avoided. Thanks to Mr. Perry, I'm home with my family. I highly recommend Attorney Perry to anyone seeking the most qualified legal representation.

Fantastic attorney!!
Brian was extremely active with the District Attorney's office and was relentless in insisting that I be entered into the ARD program. His good working relationship with the DA was crucial in getting me to that outcome. Brian, was attentive to my needs, calmed my fears and kept the lines of communication open. I really can not say enough good things about him. I pray that I never need him again but if I do, it's him I want in my corner.

Attentive, professional and effective.
Brian is the consumate professional. He thoroughly know his areas of the law. His communications skills are excellent. I always knew where my matter stood. He under promises and over delivers. As an attorney myself, I know how rare this is. Highly recommend.

Personable and reasonable, but - above all - produces positive results!
Facing a tough situation, I asked for a referral to a criminal defense lawyer and was sent to Brian Perry. That was undoubtedly the most important step I took along the long path to having my charge withdrawn and the case dismissed. Brian is a personable guy and his costs were reasonable, but the results he produced were brought about by his knowledge of criminal law and his very close contacts - and great reputation - within "the system" of police, prosecutors and judges. I will still have to live with the trauma of this encounter with the criminal justice system and the court of public opinion still has an effect, but Brian secured the best possible outcome for me, allowing me to put the legal implications of this case behind me. I'm pleased to have met Brian because he seems like a genuinely nice guy, but I'm really grateful for the outstanding work he did on my behalf. He has more than earned my highest recommendation for any criminal defense work.

A Master of His Craft, and a Pleasure of a Personality
In a situation with a near impossible outcome that I was looking to get, I decided to reach out to 3 Extremely Capable Attorneys - Brian being one of them. Out of the 3, Brian not only was the only one who brought a different perspective and plan of attack to the situation, but delivered above and beyond my hopes in the outcome where the others couldn’t even promise what I hoped for. His effectiveness at combining his knowledge and wisdom of law with his relationships in the field results in a TRULY unparalleled individual. I would trust nobody else after what I have seen. If this was a game of chess, he’s above the level of a singular piece on the board; he’s a nuclear warhead. I cannot speak his praise enough, and will be recommending him to ANY AND ALL of my family and friends in any situations that may ever arise for need of wise, true, and effective representation.

Phenomenal Lawyer
I have worked with Mr. Perry on a couple different cases and he by far is the best attorney I've ever dealt with. He goes above and beyond for his clients. He's truthful and straight forward and doesn't hold any punches. I appreciate all the hard work and dedication he gave to my husband's case. I couldn't have picked a better lawyer to handle his cases. If ever I or anyone I know should need an attorney...trust the 1st person I will always recommend is Brian Perry.

Legal assistance criminal defense
Brian was very response for consulting with my wife and I when my son required legal assistance. Brian was readily referred to us by other members of the legal community. My son's case was handled very professionally and had a result that more than met our expectations in a positive manner. Brian is down to earth and able to explain the legal landscape to non legal parties like my wife and I. I would not hesitate to seek Brian for legal assistance in the future or refer others to him.

Amazing lawyer, amazing human !!
We hired Brian Perry to help our teenage son with a false accusation and then a sports eligibility matter in our area. Brian prevailed dominantly on both fronts for us and our son and cleared his name and put him back on the field where he belonged. Brian isn’t just a lawyer looking to make money, he’s a caring and compassionate Attorney who puts his heart and soul into his work and into your life. He believes in the cases he works and is a powerful force to have on your side. I have interacted with hundreds of attorneys in my career and Brian is something different, something special the exact person you want representing you or your loved ones. He is very easy to talk to and is a realistic guy who doesn’t hide the reality from his clients. He feels like a trusted friend when you work with him, but when he’s in court on your behalf he’s all business and commands the attention of every person in the room with his knowledge, preparation and delivery of the facts ! There is no other person we would ever have represent our family in any matter !! A total success !

The choice of lawyer matters
In fact, it might be the most important decision that is actually in your hands; that’s the sad reality. Brian is very intelligent, thorough, fair, and was an aggressive advocate on my son’s behalf. His reputation within and knowledge of the system led to a far better outcome than we could have ever hoped for. The gears of the legal system are a very scary place; you should get the best representation possible. I apologize for sounding like a commercial, but Brian really IS the guy you want in your corner.
