Cliff Perkins exceeded my expectaions is handling my case. The outcome of the case was very good.
I was never frustrared , calls and e-mail were returned within an hour at most. The staff at The Perkins
Law Firm are professional, kind and on top of the status of your case.

I have defended many a claim that Cliff has brought on behalf of his clients. While our clients often have strong disagreements, Cliff has always been very professional with me. We can agree to disagree and still be civil. Characterizing him as a 'Velvet Hammer' on behalf of his clients is the best short hand way I have of summarizing his style and effectiveness. I expect a hard fight when I see his name, but I also know that it will be a fair fight. His word can be trusted.
