Better than I ever would have hoped.
Perry came with the highest recommendation and delivered. From an initial consultation within an hour of contacting him and through a seven month ordeal of hearing and court dates, he and his staff were always responsive , informative and supportive. He outlined everything that would and could happen beforehand, reviewed everything that did happen after and always kept me aware of my options. It is beyond comforting to have 'The' lawyer on your side who draws the notice of everyone - other counselors and court staff included - when he enters the courtroom.

A lie travels half way around the world, while the truth is still putting on it's shoes - Mark Twain
Perry was truly a "Knight in shining armour" for my family and I. He stood by us and guided us through every step of the process and surely one of my darkest times. Sometimes in life, you meet special people that can honestly help you. That is what Perry meant to us. The man! Incredible!!

Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 02
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mr. DeMarco is one of the most experienced, skillful, conscientious, and especially zealous attorneys that I have had the pleasure of working with in my 15 years as a criminal defense attorney. I highlighted his zealousness because he does not hesitate to express his righteous indignation during trials- even toward judges when their pro-prosecution bias is exposed in court. Once when we represented co-defendants in a major felony trial, a judge began aggressively cross-examining a key defense eyewitness. Mr. DeMarco chastised that unfair judge in open court and refused to relent even when warned by the judge to do so. By the way, he won the case. And in addition to being one of Philadelphia's greatest trial lawyers, he's also a really nice guy. I'd hire him if I ever got in trouble."
