Respectful and Tenacious Attorney
Hiring Terence Perenich as my attorney after my auto accident was the biggest relief and lifesaver. I was so confused with all the phone calls, and paperwork I was receiving from the auto insurance companies and he truly helped me navigate through this rough time in my life. He worked diligently to provide me with the best doctors and settlement possible. He was always available to answer any questions whether it was via phone, email or just stopping by his office, he always will willing to meet with me and explain where we were in my case. Terence worked hard and passionately against the at-fault parties insurance company to get my medical bills paid, and compensation for my suffering due to the negligence of this driver. I would recommend Terence to all. If you want a passionate, smart, aggressive and caring attorney who genuinely cares for you, and your case then look no further.

Changed My Life!
Terence helped me after I was rear ended. I had thousands of dollars in medical bills. He supported me by helping to guide me through the entire process. Once or more a month I would hear from him personally to discuss where we were on my case. His assistant Dana would call me almost weekly to update me, ask questions, and help me with whatever I needed. If I ever had a question for Terence, I could just call the office and he would get right on the phone with me, or would call me back as soon as he was available. I couldn't remember how I paid on one of my medical bills and his assistant Dana told me she would take care of it. She called and figured the whole thing out for me. Terence worked with the doctors to reduce my bills so I could have more money for further therapy and treatment. I felt like they went above and beyond expectations. The amount of assistance I received from Terence at this painful, exhausting and overwhelming time was outstanding. Not only was I beyond pleased and stunned with the settlement I received, I was beyond pleased with Terence, his staff, and the experience I had with Perenich the Law Firm.
