Introductory meeting
I approached Frank with questions related to the executive retention package. There were complicated questions about SERP, change of control and other. Frank invited me to the introductory meeting and answered all my questions right away. HE and his associate studied my paperwork and were very proficient in their responses. I really enjoyed working with Frank and his team and would come back when needed.

Frank has a great personality, after talking to him for 5 minutes you feel like you have known him all your life. He helped me through a very stressful time in my life, with a great result. I could not ask for more from any lawyer. No one wants to need the services of an attorney, but if you do, I would call Frank Perretta in a heartbeat. I feel like I found a great attorney, and a new friend. Terry

Great first experience seeking legal council
Frank was a pleasure to work with. I had some questions regarding resolving a clawback provision in my employment contract and he was able to meet with me on short notice and answer my questions clearly and quickly. When a complication arose several days later, he again met with me to help me understand my options and obligations. Direct, efficient and to-the-point, I felt that he valued my time and was very knowledgeable about the issues raised.

Car insurance Bad Faith
Mr.Perretta was quick and concise with his advice. He was also fair in showing interests of all parties and made me feel at ease with my situation. His professional manner, his get it done approach and his prompt and caring follow ups are what make him and his practice shine.

World class attorney
Frank Perretta is one of the best attorney's I have worked with in 20 years of managing legal issues for corporations. Frank brings a strong combination of expertise, advocacy and strategy to bear on the issues and transactions that we have worked through together. He comes with my highest level of professional recommendation and he continues to be our "go-to" attorney for all Real Estate and Litigation Matters.

Cannot say enough positive things!
Frank helped us resolve a contentious family lawsuit in a reasonable time frame. He is knowledgeable and explained issues/options clearly. He helped us balance the legal and emotional issues that were involved with a light touch. We received updates regularly and our questions/requests were responded to in a timely manner. If we are ever in a similar situation, Frank will be my first phone call. And kudos to his staff - a seamless extension of Frank and a pleasure to work with.

Excellent Skills and Results
Frank handled a difficult family situation with finesse and efficiency. Both Frank and his team were very timely in their communications to us. His handling of a difficult opposing counsel made the process much easier than we were all expecting. Frank is very affable and put us at ease immediately while proceeding with knowledge and confidence in our matter. If he didn't know the answer, he found it for us. My only regret is that I didn't find him earlier as we would have concluded this matter much sooner. We're very pleased with Frank's performance and will call on him again if ever needed.

Frank clarified the case for me
Frank Perretta and Carrie MacIntosh gave me a free one hour consultation, as promised in www.avvo.com, answered all my questions and clarified all the doubts I had. I offered to pay but they refused to accept anything and stood by their promise of one hour free consultation. Frank was very knowledgeable, informative, broke down his explanation of my questions very well and described the situation very clearly. As for Carrie, she was very attentive during the consultation, studied the material I had brought, paid full attention to my questions, and gave valuable input when time came. For my case, I won't need to pursue the matter legally. However, I would've felt confident that they would've done a good job if I wanted to use their help. Their office validated my parking as well. Thank you Frank. Thank you Carrie.
