Excellent professional, caring representation
Many thanks to Scott, Rebekah, and the team for helping me through a very difficult time. Their professional and caring representation eventually resulted in dismissal and enabled me to get on with my life. I'm very grateful and highly recommend them.

Best lawyer in Dallas
I was represented by Rebekah through Scott Palmer P.C. Rebekah is hands down the best lawyer I know and worked my case ASAP. Rebekah gets the job done and she did the work herself! I was wrongfully arrested and was about to be convicted of a felony. I got into a car accident and next thing you know I was arrested for having a warrant. I was so shocked and scared when I was arrested and was put into jail. The charges were absurd, not accurate and the person lied to make sure I was put in jail. As soon as I got out of jail me and my dad looked for the best attorney in Dallas and preferred a board certified attorney. Then we found Scott Palmer. My dad wanted me to do more research for someone to represent me but I already knew Scott Palmer would be the best for me. Everything was nerve wrecking to me trying to recall the incident back in December but with the help from Rebekah reviewing my evidence, writing my packet, affidavit and case was no billed thanks to Rebekah. Rebekah saved my life and future. I cannot express how thankful I am for Rebekah representing me and putting the work in. Literally 2 days after I signed the affidavit, the charges were dropped and I was no billed. I was only with Scott Palmer P.C and Rebekah under 2 months and my case was resolved quickly. Thank you so much Rebekah for everything. Rebekah does an amazing job on her own and would love to see her have her own practice. Definitely recommend Rebekah to anyone!

Best of the Best
I have nothing but high praise for Rebekah, as I do for everyone me and my family have been represented by in the Palmer Law firm. This may sound terrible but we have had to have representation from minor to major issues involving criminal defense, child custody, and other issues. I have placed me and my families hands with these consumate professionals and they have always delivered, each time, every time. You want this firm in your corner to fight for your rights!

Amazing
I had come to Rebekah with hopes of the best possible outcome and she did exactly that. She was super kind, always responded to my emails, never seemed inconvenienced by my persistence in updates and most of all, she got the best outcome available. Rebekah was so professional, and was always so easy to contact and helped me get assistance with my ticket as well. Id recommend her to anyone needing legal help. This whole experience changed my life for the better and I’m glad i chose Rebekah to help me get a second chance.

True Professionalism and Integrity
Although asked to be specific as to detail, I will defer in reference to the legal matter. I will say that from motion granted (took her 2 hrs to execute successfully) to the dropping of charges on a second count, and the repair of a nightmare horror show of a prior lawyer I fired for dishonesty, fraud, and all too common dishonest dealing and not preparing a defense, She rescued me from the worst consequences of a dishonest and incompetent lawyer (far too many of these) and cleaned everything up to the highest quality possible in my view. My advice. Hire this lady if you are in need of a Lawyer

Absolutely AMAZING!
She is the best of the best! Always available for questions and advice and did everything in her power to help! She helped me through some very tough decisions and I was pleasantly surprised by how great she was in the courtroom. She’s a bull dog! If you need someone to fight for you in a trial, she’s the best!

Great Lawyer!
It was a pleasure having Rebekah take on my case. She made sure I was taken care of and made the entire process extremely easy for me, her client. I literally relied on her for any and all questions I had regarding my case, and she was able to answer all of them with a due diligent manner. I highly recommend Rebekah Perlstein as a lawyer, you will not regret it.

Privilege to have met her
I’ve been using Mrs. Perlstein for four years now and she has been right by my side through various charges of varying degrees. She does everything with an infectious passion to give you the best possible outcome for your case. I just signed a deal today and the judge on the record said “Mrs. Perlstein worked out one heck of a deal for you” and if that doesn’t show you the manic she works I’m not sure what will.

Rebekah helped me get my life back
I hired Scott / Rebekah when a single stupid mistake could of easily changed my life forever. Having a very heavy charge hanging over my head and not a clue where to begin, Scott/Rebekah helped guide me through exactly what to expect and how to proceed from day one. Scott and Rebekah are not ones to beat around the bush, they tell it how it is which provided me a clear picture of what was to occur in the coming months. Rebekah (who is a former prosecutor) helped me understand how a prosecutor would act in my case and what the state expected of me to ensure no further mistakes would be committed. Over several months Scott and Rebekah were very attentive to my questions and general anxiety regarding my case. Without them, I don't know where I would be and am very thankful for how things turned out. I was able to get the best possible outcome in a very bad situation which is why I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking help.

Top Notch Defense Attorney
Scott Palmer and Rebekah Perlstein are top notch felony defense attorneys. I know from firsthand experience. The worst day of my life was when I was charged with a second degree felony carrying 2 to 10 years in prison. I had hired and fired two law firms before by chance I came to their website. From the very first contact to the day they told me they were able to get my case dismissed they were professional and awesome in every way. Thats right, I said dismissed. The other attorneys were prepping me for a long hard legal road ahead of me, but with the Palmer Law Firm it was different. They were in my corner and on my side from square one, believing in my innocence and standing up to defend me the way only good defense attorneys with seasoned experience can. My life is still not back to the way it was prior to the arrest, but thank God I hired Scott Palmer to defend me because he and his team including Rebekah Perlstein performed nothing short of a miracle in my case. If Scott (and his team) can’t do it, nobody can in my opinion. But, if other attorneys can’t do it, there is a good chance Scott can, and that’s coming from my experience. If you are ever facing a felony charge give Scott Palmer and Rebekah Perlstein a call. It’s the best thing you can do.

Rebekah is a great lawyer. Don't miss her if you have a big trouble!
Rebekah is a great lawyer. Believe or not. I got a big problem with two felony charges. First of all, she tried to negotiate with the prosecutor to drop my charges to Class A. Later, additionally, I don't know what kind of magic she made, she had both of my charges dismissed. If you have a big trouble with a prosecutor, don't miss this amazing lawyer.

Loved Her Strategy and Delivery
Handled my case with passion. I literally didn’t have to do anything. It was a speedy process and positive outcome. Would do business with her again and again but I’m trying to keep my track record down ;-)

if i could give more than 5 stars i would!
this was my first time having any offenses against me and as I'm sure you can imagine it was very nerve racking not knowing what would happen to my future, I was referred to Scott Palmer Law through another attorney and Rebekah was with me every step of the way. Very professional, always setting correct expectations and helping me to keep calm when I would freak out, very responsive whenever I had questions and explained the process very thoroughly. She always kept me in the loop as soon as any new information came out that I needed to be aware of and she ended up getting me into a program to expunge all of the charges against me which is a savior as my career depended on it. I definitely made a big mistake and it taught me a lesson but I couldn't have picked a better attorney to be by my side through this situation. VERY thankful to have found Rebekah in my time of need! 100% would recommend.
