I have been a client of Gary Perlmuter for 10 years. We just closed on a business deal. Gary Perlmuter is very diligent, very responsive, thinks outside the box and is creative in finding solutions. I have worked with other lawyers in the past but never trusted any of them as completely as I trust Gary Perlmuter.

Highly Skilled
I've been with Gary for 20 years now. He is effective, efficient, great with communicating the things he needs from me and following up to make sure I've done my part. He really thinks ahead, considers the overall cost of all of his actions and keeps our business protected BEFORE we have problems. Great for everything from local actions to international actions. I have no higher recommendation.
