Effective, easy to work with Probate Attorney
My father died in 2009 with challenging legal circumstances that Mr. Perlick assisted me to navigate. He continues to help me manage the Estate and its varied details, avoiding pitfalls common layperson is not likely to be aware, and seeks the best benefit and ease of transitions. I am grateful for his expertise, ease of working with and thorough communication.

David incorporated my company and has been there up through our growth from start-up to 23,000 subscribers!
If you want a lawyer you can find one anywhere. If you want an intelligent partner who truly cares about your business and helps you make strategic decisions (that are also protect you from a legal standpoint) then contact David. I met with David when I had not even formed my company yet and I literally will have him as part of my team for the rest of my career. An example of his brilliance was his insistence on our filing of our patents and trademarks. We were able to sell one of our trademarks (that we were no longer using) to Weight Watchers for $250,000 and that never would have happened without David. Some people view legal fees as a necessary expenditure that hurts their bottom line. I view David's time as an investment in my company and to be honest he is a bargain. In summary, if I was asked to take 5 of my best contacts to battle for the most important business challenge of my life David would flat out be one of them. Please contact me directly anytime if you would like a reference about why working with David may be one of your best moves yet. Take care
