I believe that trial lawyers, along with the jury system, perform an integral function in our society, by leveling the playing field among parties with disparate economic resources. By focusing my practice on a select number of catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases, rather than focusing on volume, I am able to devote the individual attention that each client deserves. As a result, the vast majority of my clients are referrals from other lawyers, judges and members of the community.

Medical malpractice/product liability lawsuit
Scott represented us in a medical malpractice lawsuit. From our initial consultation to the very satisfactory conclusion of our suit, I never doubted Scott or his firm's ability to successfully represent us. He is a brilliant lawyer who always seemed to know the right thing to do at the right time . He was not only my lawyer but a friend that I could call on for guidance and consolation during the darkest hours of my wife's hospitalization and rehabilitation. When he needed to bring in experts or other legal minds, they were always of the higheest caliber in their respective area of concentration. Lawsuits are rarely resolved as quickly as we would like. Patience is important. It paid huge dividends for us. We are not at liberty to discuss the terms of our settlement but I will say this; the case that Scott Perry and Associates prepared left little doubt as to a success conclusion had it gone to trial. As a result, our case was, most satifactorily settled out of court. The award was one the highest ever in a medical malpractice/product liability case. Although, my wife will always bear the scars and psychological trauma of her experience, Sott made sure that those responsible were held accountable. We recommend the law firm of Perry/Charnoff and Associates without reservation. .

Review of Scott M. Perry, Esq.
Scott Perry was our attorney in a wrongful death suit. During this stressful and tragic time in our life, Scott was always there to answer our phone calls, our questions, reassure us and keep us updated on what was happening. Always being sensitive to our feelings, Scott handled our case with mastery as well as caring. He was a calming factor to us during many highly overcharged depositions. Scott is a brilliant lawyer, - aggressive when he needs to be and thoughtful and planning when that is needed. Now, seven years after the case has concluded, I called Scott with a follow up question. He researched and had my answer the next day. I am honored to have had him as my attorney. I consider him the absolute best!

Wrongful Death case in Prince William County
Mr. Perry took my wrongful death case and worked it for 3 years. His dedication and intimate knowledge of the law was the sole reason for the better than average settlement that we received. Mr. Perry went out of his way to keep me informed throughout the process and answered any and all of my questions without any delay. He explained the many complicated procedures, documents and court filings again and again so that we were comfortable with all that was going on with our case. I highly recommend Mr. Perry and his associates to all my friends and family!

Endorse Scott
Personal injury Attorney | Aug 30
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Scott attended a CLE on the Art of Voir Dire, for which I was a presenter. I found him to be very dedicated to the causes of his clients and extremely knowledgeable in his area of practice."
Personal injury Attorney | Feb 17
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I endorse this lawyer, without reservation of any sort. I had the experience meeting Mr. Perry because I was representing a defendant Mr. Perry was suing. It was a complicated case involving many moving parts. From the beginning it was apparent to me that Mr. Perry was not only effective and prepared, but truly committed to seeking justice for his client. He worked diligently and expressed empathy for his client's losses. When you’re knocked down, and need to pick an attorney to not just represent you, but help you get back up. You need an attorney who believes in your case. Mr. Perry has shown to me to be that counsel. In fact, since that experience I have had occasions to collaborate with Mr. Perry and his firm as co-counsel. I chose to work with Mr. Perry based on what was evident from the beginning: his dynamism, his command of the law and, again, most importantly, his unparalleled dedication to his client’s cause."
Medical malpractice Attorney | Oct 07
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse this lawyer. Whenever I have a client in need of a medical malpractice attorney, I send them to Scott. He is very hard-working and diligent and he always has his clients' best interests in mind."
Medical malpractice Attorney | Feb 25
Relationship: Co-worker
"Scott is a dynamic and insightful litigator. He has a wealth of experience representing those injured by the mistakes of others, including professional health care providers. Scott's command of the litigation process from an initial consultation through jury trial allows him to assist his clients with measured confidence."
