I have worked with Charles both as a colleague and as a client for over twelve years. Charles is a very professional, dedicated, and zealous advocate for his clients. He is among the top litigators I have worked with and provides excellent client service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing the services of a top-notch litigator.

It is my great pleasure to recommend Charles Pernicka. I first hired Charles and his firm a couple of years ago to handle trademark registrations for my business. Although this was not Charles' specific area of expertise he quickly put me in touch with a colleague whom walked me through the in's and out's of the process. Charles was incredibly helpful in guiding me through the pro's and con's of a number of key business decisions I had to make. His business and contract knowledge proved to help my business mitigate a number of risks. Throughout the lengthy process of securing the trademarks, Charles kept me informed and was very responsive when I had questions along the way. I would highly recommend Charles and his firm to friends and family.

My Company and myself were named as Defendants in a Federal Lawsuit. Though the insurance company supplied me with an attorney, Charles was instrumental in walking me through this legal mess. He was able to talk to me in a language and explain in a way that I understood what was going to happen or what had happened, as we were dealing with two plaintiff attorneys, insurance company attorney and magistrate. Charles was very knowledgeable in Federal Court and its rules as they are different than the state. He had a calming influence, never got excited, yet could lead or takeover if he thought it was in my best interest. It was interesting to watch the dynamics as he would sit back and let the insurance company attorney that was defending me, do his job first and only stepped in when he thought it was necessary. Impressed me as it takes a very calm personality to be able to do that. We had a good outcome which I credit very much to the hard work and influence of Mr. Pernicka.
