Professional, thorough and personable
I had Vincent put together an estate plan for me and he took the time to make sure that my plan addressed everything that I wanted to have addressed. He gave me solid advice, was easy to work with, thorough and explained everything to my satisfaction. I would absolutely work with him again.

I refer everyone to him
I’ve used Mr. Perryman’s expertise for more than 10 years. He has assisted with a divorce and an order of protection. He has also been available for consultations about estate planning, name changes, settling an estate, and just general legal advice. I recommend him to any friend in need of the services he provides.

Smooth and easy divorce
Mr Perryman was hired for a divorce. He was easily contacted, prompt return of phone calls, and was easy to book an initial consultation appointment with. He was knowledgeable and thorough with the entire process. There was an adoption and pre-nuptial agreement involved which he handled without difficulty. My case was set in a timely matter and there were no difficulties at the final hearing. Overall, I am extremely pleased with Mr Perryman's performance and would highly recommend him.

Generous, Personable and Caring Attorney
During a very difficult time, Mr. Perryman stepped in and represented me making certain that my father's best interests were served when he had become incapacitated. During times where I was extremely emotional he handled my concerns with a generous grace and helped me understand the legal process of appointing someone to make decisions for my father's health.

Excellent service, value and very satisfied
This was the first time I have needed an attorney and I was referred by family friends to Mr. Perryman. He was honest from the start letting me know which of my expectations were realistic. His office was always responsive to my requests and kept me informed as my case proceeded. I was very pleased with the result and would recommend him highly to anyone in need of an honest attorney.

Best Attorney in Memphis
I have worked with Mr Perryman on a number of legal matters over the past including the execution of my grandfather's estate, reconciliation of past debts, as well as all of the questions and concerns I have had regarding all legal matters for the past 4 years. He is knowledgeable, determined, dedicated, and above all, honest. There is no attorney I would trust as well with any legal matter I may ever encounter in Tennessee.

Quality Tax Lawyer
I grew up with Vince here in Memphis, and have also worked with him professionally for 6 years. During this time he has handled numerous problems for my tax clients resulting in quick and successful resolution. He has also assisted me in other areas such as LLC formation, Corporate dissolutions and legal advice for my business. I would recommend Vince for any legal needs you may need.

Excellent Service,
I was very pleased with the service I received when Mr. Perryman reviewed the docments pertaining to the sale of my business. He made sure I was protected form the pitfalls of a non-compete agreement going forward. I also recommened him to one of my clients and his words are "He is a bulldog in court"

This is the lawyer you have been looking for.
I founded a company five years ago and asked Mr. Perryman to ensure proper not-for-profit letters of incorporation with both state and federal governments and to provide professional counsel on all tax and legal documentation. Our charter and paperwork were handled and accepted immediately, and Mr. Perryman provided detailed, full service any time of day, seven days a week, and with great generosity, humor, experience, and professional knowledge. Simply, the company would not have begun were it not for Mr. Perryman. He is always the first lawyer I recommend to friends and associates, and I recommended him for a monthly television show host on legal matters two years ago, at which he has excelled. He is personable, approachable, reachable, and kind. Mr. Perryman has my full recommendation for his services.

J. Vincent Perryman review
Mr. Perryman helped me and my family at a very difficult time. His knowledge of the law was crucial in saving us time and money during the probate of an estate. He has helped us since with wills and setting up trusts. He is very knowledgeable of tax law. I recommend him highly.

Handled my Estate Planning
My wife and I were concerned about what might happen to our son in the event that we passed. Vince helped us set a plan aside in case something did happen. He had some good insite into what we should do for a lot of specific matters we hadn't even thought about. I would recommend him to anyone looking for estate planning.

I was disappointed that he did not give a deposition within three months after the judge asked if he needed more time. As a result, I lost my case. He did not keep me informed nor did he mail me the decision. Evidence was clear that I should have won my case.

Simple request for a Will
I guess there was not enough money involved with writing a Will. I came across V. Perryman through a legal aid type benefit from my employer. All I wanted was an update on a current Will. How hard is that? Apparently hard for V. Perryman. He never responded. I called recently and HE answered the phone. Guess covid affected him too. He again stated he would call back but never did. I have to question your abilities for major things when you can't do Simple..

Nothing positive to say
Our experience with Vincent was complete frustration and disappointment. All we needed were wills, trusts, and advanced directives. He took forever to respond to emails/calls/texts and had no desire to actually be helpful. We had several questions he couldn't answer about some of the terminology within the trust. After asking around we now know this is his reputation and no one had anything positive to say regarding his legal professionalism.

Very young. Very green. Does not represent your wishes in court.
Do not use this man for your family law problems. He seems ill equipped to deal with the stress of running a practice as he has an office that is under staffed. He does not communicate well or answer emails. I was left on hold for an attorney for 15 minutes at one point. He does not assume responsibility when things do not go favorably. He took a deposition and did not even swear in the witness properly.
