Mark Perenich, Esquire
Mr. Perenich has been the only Attorney I have ever recommended to anyone and I have been a Legal Assistant for 17 years. He is honest, trustworthy and one of the best Lawyers' I've ever met. I've worked for both Plaintiff and Defense, I've faced him on opposite sides and quite frankly, he kicked our butts! He is not just a great Attorney, he is a great man. I respect him above all others and will continue to advise anybody to call him first. Truly a great man!!!

Great choice for a lawyer
Mark handled my while I was in college at the University of Central Florida. I had been envolved in an auto accident where I rear ended a car in front of me that had slammed on their breaks. The car that I hit did not press charges but 3 years after the accident, the car in front of them acquired a lawyer with an intent to sue me for the cost of their medical bills. I could not beleive that the injured party would try to sue me 3 years later and furthermore was shocked that they would have any grounds to sue me considering they were not even in the car that recieved the brunt of the impact. I had a lot of questions for Mark when I recieved the letter from the sueing parties attorney and Mark was quick to answer all of my questions. He never made me feel foolish for not knowing what probably seemed like simple answers and always was quick to provide options and answers. His reliability was also a plus. When he promised to do something it got done and then he would make sure he called or emailed me with any updates regarding the case. When it was all said and done, he was able to help me negotiate a more than fair deal with the insurance company. His professionalism, ability to explain, willingness to help, and personal skills make him a great person to work with.
