OWED PAY? DISCRIMINATED AT WORK? SUFFERED AN INJURY? PEREZ LAW, P.A.

Daniel Arturo Pérez, Esq. has been practicing labor and employment, employment discrimination, wrongful termination, and Family & Medical Leave law since November 2000.  Attorney Pérez also practices catastrophic accident and personal injury law. 

Attorney Pérez is a Central Florida local having graduated from Oak Ridge High School in 1992 and the University of Central Florida in 1996.  Attorney Pérez graduated from the George Washington University School of Law in Washington, D.C. in May 2000 and he was admitted to the Florida Bar Association in November 2000.  

During law school (and immediately thereafter), Attorney Pérez worked for a labor and employment boutique law firm in Washington, D.C. representing federal employees working across the United States, Europe, and Asia.  In 2003, Attorney Pérez returned to his home state of Florida where he continues to practice labor and employment law and also accident law.

Attorney Pérez has the unique experience of representing federal civil service employees working for various federal administrative agencies (e.g., the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. Department of Veteran's Affairs, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the National Aeronautics & Space Administration  ("NASA"), and the Internal Revenue Service).  

Attorney Pérez has extensive experience representing public and private sector clients before state and federal trial and appellate courts and before various agencies such as the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's Office of Federal Operations, the Florida Commission on Human Relations, the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, and the U.S. Office of Special Counsel.  Furthermore, Attorney Pérez has extensive experience litigating cases involving employment contracts, non-compete agreements, independent contractor agreements, unpaid wages, unpaid minimum wages, unpaid overtime wages, and unpaid commissions.  

On a personal note, if the universe were to issue Attorney Pérez a performance evaluation, it would state that he is a gifted surfer, skillful boater, good poker player, satisfactory fisherman, mediocre wakeboarder, and unsatisfactory (frankly, dangerous) golfer who enjoys traveling to warm, tropical destinations with his beautiful wife and two amazing children when he finds the time in between his busy and active litigation schedule.

Attorney Pérez is eager to speak with you about your labor and employment or personal injury case.  Below, please see a list of Attorney Pérez's results on behalf of his labor and employment clients and his personal injury clients.

He works for you
I was referred to Mr. Perez by another Co-worker from Airlines. I was and still am numb of what happened to me. I needed an Attorney that is confident and knows exactly what Companies do to there employees he's the Man. I Never write a review about any of my business but I felt everyone who needs a good labor lawyer and one that works for you, Not afraid to take on the Airlines ,This is your guy. Just one thing. Don't talk to him while he's looking over all your paperwork and Documents you have. He will tell you outright quiet let me see what I'm dealing with here. I never been more at ease knowing that Someone like Mr. Perez is there for me and he will seek Justice for what was taken from me wrongfully. I don't feel hopeless knowing he's handling my case.

Highly Recommended
Mr.Perez represented me in an EOT case against the government. His knowledge and experience is second to none; We won the case! I have recommended Mr. Perez to other individuals and advise you to contact him to seek justice. It is hard to find someone who specializes in unfair employment issues, such as: Discrimination, Retataliation or Illegal Termination. Do yourself a favor, know your rights, your employer will not advise you, seek the justice you deserve, contact someone who knows, Mr. Perez.

He was clearing his guidelines and made the necessary calculations with confidence. Results of which were very beneficial to my circumstance. I would recommend him highly to anyone who has difficulties with government employment, and I plan to use him again if the need arises.

Highly Recommend Daniel A. Perez
Daniel Perez was the legal representative for my EEO claim (i.e., Sex Discrimination, Sexual Harassment, and Retaliation) against a government agency. His conduct was professional and respectful throughout the entire EEO process. His extensive experience and knowledge of federal employment and federal agencies was invaluable to the case. He has a natural ability to think quickly on his feet but stay analytical and to the point. He exuberates confidence and his passion to help those in need shows through his character, speech, writing, and results. He successfully got me what I needed to move forward. I was very fortunate to have Daniel represent me during the entire EEO process (e.g., EEO complaint, Mediation, and Settlement Agreement).

Un profesional con un corazón diamante!!
Mi caso ,se basó en un accidente en cual yo maneja una mountain bike y un supervisor de la compañia de transporte público,Linx,el me impacta por por detras y tuve un sin número de lesiones .Al principio del proceso, yo contacté a un buffet de abogados bien conocido para q atendieran mi caso. Ellos por falta supuestamente de evidencia,abandonaron mi caso.. Daniel entonces toma mi caso y en su profesionalismo ,presentó inteligentemente pruebas y refutaciones como todo un general, logrando el caso a mi favor. Super agradecido pues el rindió la milla extra para q el descenlace del caso ,justamente fuera a mi favor..Dios lo bendiga siempre!!

Daniel Perez. Excellent Experience
Dan Perez is an excellent employment law attorney. I met Dan in August 2019 regarding an employment law matter and he worked extremely hard to quickly bring the matter to closure. Dan was always very responsive whenever I had to reach him by phone or email. He is extremely knowledgeable and a great communicator. He always kept me informed on exactly where we were during the process. It was a pleasure to work with Dan and his excellent staff. Very professional experience. I highly recommend Dan Perez for employment law cases.

Claro, Preciso y al Grano
Nuestra familia desde que lo conocemos su integridad y su experiencia nos hizo sentir seguros en todo momento, siempre demuestra sus conocimientos de manera efectiva, Daniel Perez fue una luz de esperanza para mi familia en un momento en que nuestras opciones parecían limitadas y la probabilidad de una resolución satisfactoria parecía casi imposible. No solo fue capaz de defendernos de una decisión injusta de parte de nuestro seguro, sino que su actitud calmada y empática nos trasmitio mucha paz en el transcurso del proceso, Mi esposo y yo estamos eternamente agradecidos por su servicio y por la presente recomiendo a la Sr. Perez sin reservas en todo momento que alguien necesite un abogado con experiencia y sincero .

Excellence in service and results
One Tuesday afternoon in January 2017 I came to Attny Perez for a consultation to discuss a bind that could leave me out of a job by the end of that week. While this required I hired him, he had contacted all the parties by the next day and had me back on track by Friday afternoon. Mr Perez was very intentional on his approach and charged a reasonable fee for his services. I am so glad I picked him. I would recommend him any day.
