Veteran disability / AMAZING
Perry Pirsch wrote my brief for my appeal for partial disability from Vietnam. He picked apart there flimsy case like a vulture.he noticed things that were out of place, that everyone else had missed. And Perry is a brilliant writer. Really has a way with words. Conveyed exactly what I feel. He put so much thought and time into my case. I feel like he genuinely cares about us old Vets. Sincerely, Harold

How Perry Pirsch Has Helped Us
Perry Pirsch is with an excellent law firm with a lot of resources. He is very mindful of your time and tries to solve problems in a quick and efficient manner. He will also be straight with you as to when you are wrong and how to best fix a situation. His knowledge of the Tax Law is vast. We have used him on several different occasions involving personal estate planning and business matters. We consider not only a great lawyer, but a great friend as well. I would highly recommend talking with him and using him for different areas of the law.

Kept retainer without billing against or returning it
Perry charged $2500 retainer, never billed against, refuses to return it (which is the law). Yet he claims in his appeal to the courts about his gun charge that he describes himself as " VERY PRO-LAW ENFORCEMENT" (journalstar.com) yet tells me to hire an attorney to contact his Insurance about getting my retainer returned. Cannot understand why he does not enforce the law here and return my retainer?

Changed my review
He filed counterclaim leading us (3) to think we had damages instead should have filed immediate dismissal which we asked him for as soon as we hired him but instead he gave plaintiff all of our personal information; ssn, bank accounts, did not block out any of that but plaintiffs attorney blocked out all of their information....if that is your strategy to sell out your clients because you are too busy fighting 2 lawsuits of your own....hope you do not do any other clients an injustice ....we asked for immediate dismissal and you not us wanted to file counterclaim and you ran up our bill. Why did you change my original review? Did not want others to see it?
