Mr. Pernik took the time to know me as a person and to also know my family. Not only did he fight for the best outcome for me, but he also was available to answer my questions 24-7. I felt very protected and calm when Mr. Pernick would enter the court room with him. I can't thank him enough for his hard work and dedication on my case. He saved my livelihood.
