The Perecman Firm is an outstanding law firm, that I would highly recommend. From the first day the team accommodated the needs of my husband and I at a very difficult time. Throughout the process they paid close attention to every detail of my husband’s care and aftercare needs for the case. They used resources available to guide us through as if it were their relative, they were fighting for. The staff at Perecman Firm treated us as if we were family, rather than just a client. The office staff is an amazing group of people, always willing to answer any questions. I am grateful to David Perecman, Steven Dorfman, Adam Hurwitz, Ed Guldi, and Nelson Hernandaz; for they are an outstanding team of extremely professional lawyers.

Although the process of a lawsuit is quite long and stressful, the firm has kept me informed at all times and is willing and able to answer any questions you have immediately. Knowledgeable and efficient lawyers are hard to come by these days and I'm confident with Marius Sniarowski managing my case.
I had the pleasure to work with Mr. Mariusz Sniarowski at The Perecman Firm. He showed full professionalism, understanding and patience. I received a comprehensive answer to my every trivial question.
The whole process of a lawsuit is something that is new to me. As a person who likes to know and understand what is going on I appreciate the time that the team working on my case has spent explaining things to me in length. Adam, Steve and Sagar always got back to me when I reached out with questions or concerns and kept me updated even when nothing new had come about. I believe whole heartedly that they care about me, my family, my well being and the outcome of my trial. I've never worked with another law firm before so I have nothing to compare them against, but I can say that The Perecman Firm have met my expectations of what a professional and compassionate law firm should be.
The Perecman Firm has has not only stood by me as a client. They stand up for what's right.
The Perecman Firm will do all that's possible to help you in your time of need very professional understanding and they do care of your well being they are all great attorneys with experience and be sure they have your best interests in mind I recommend them to anyone in court in depositions they are great they take care of social security workers compensation even the paralegals are great there on it!
The Perecman Firm is the best firm hands down, as I have had experience with another firm prior to me having The Perecman Firm represent me, and they are absolutely phenomenal in every aspect. I am happy I chose The Perecman Firm to represent me in my cases and would recommend them to anyone who has a personal injury case.
My experience with the The Perecman Firm began at a low point in my life I had been seriously injured when I called The Perecman Firm they were very professional an courteous they even sent a car to pick me up and to me that was totally unexpected. I was met by a group attorneys including Mr. Perecman to discuss my case they even handled my worker’s compensation and got the best possible result, I don’t know what will be the outcome of my 3rd party case but what I do know is this firm works hard for their clients and I know that I’m in good hands
David and Adam at The Perecman Firm are very professional I am very please with how much attention they gave my case. Very personable and caring, they did everything they could and were very honest with me.
The Perecman Firm has been tremendous since day one with me. My lawyer Peter Rigelhaupt, paralegal Litzy Acevedo, the worker's comp department and the rest of the firm have been very helpful and supportive during these trying times. I definitely think they are the best law firm in New York.
The Perecman Firm is reliable. Each team member working directly on my behalf, from my personal attorney, to the most senior levels of leadership, everyone performed the way any wronged party would demand and deserve. They were informative and accessible throughout a protracted years-long challenge, demonstrating what Personal Injury Litigation should mean for the Client. It is no easy matter to be seriously injured by a large entity with experience and a history of support in avoiding accountability. To accurately handle a behemoth, or even smaller entities, you need a skilled, proactive, amicable, responsive and expert partnership on your side. The Perecmam Firm is that partner.
The Perecman Firm has high experience are professional and a pleasure to deal with.
The Perecman Firm is very responsive and professional. Erica Colon was my assigned attorney and did a wonderful job with a high-level of service. David Perecman spent time getting to know me and my situation and did a wonderful job managing my expectations.
The Perecman Firm are great lawyers, very responsive and understanding.
Initially, I sought a law firm because I needed help with a personal injury case; but I chose the Perecman Firm because in doing my research they kept coming up as one of, if not the best personal injury firm in NYC. I specifically want to thank my lawyers and extended team of Zach and David Perecman, Linda Hirschfeld, Mariusz Sniarowski, Maria DaVila and Nelson Hernandez; to name just a few of the talented individuals who worked tirelessly on my case and gently reassured me along the way, making me feel like I was in good hands because they knew exactly what they were doing. I now know why (smile). I am confident that without the skill, talent and experience of Zach and David Perecman in and out of the courtroom, I could not have won my case, and for this I am truly grateful!
I would not refer anyone anywhere else for legal advice related to personal injury matters. The Perecman Firm is extremely compassionate and professional and has a clear record of success in advocating for their clients.
Zachary Perecman is a zealous and talented lawyer who truly cares about his clients and achieving the best results.
David and his team are spectacular lawyers. Zach Perecman is, particularly, a gentleman and a scholar. If someone was looking for a personal injury lawyer, and I couldn't represent them for whatever reason, I would certainly refer them to The Perecman Firm.
The Perecman Firm are absolute professionals. I would trust them with my own case.
I am fortunate to have chosen The Perecman Firm to handle my case. Through the course they have represented a professional and more than adequate service!
After my first telephone conversation with attorney Carissa Peebles, and subsequent meeting with her and fellow attorney Adam Hurwitz, I knew we made the right choice in hiring The Perecman Firm. David Perecman is a caring person and is always a text or phone call away. I would highly recommend them.
I do of counsel for The Perecman Firm sometimes, and they handle files very well. I highly recommend.

The people at The Perecman Firm from top to bottom are amazing. Just when you think that we live in a world where no one cares, they really do!
I have been through a lot in the last 4 years. They have laughed and cried with me every step of the way. David Perecman and Carissa Peebles treat you like the human beings we all are. I can see why the firm has made The Best Lawyers list in the past. When I got hurt my wife Kim was on her laptop when I was in surgery. She typed in Best Lawyers and The Perecman Firm popped up. She called them first and I thank god every day that she did. Carissa and Adam, another great lawyer at the Firm were at my bedside in the hospital the next day and have been taking care of us never since. You are never left in the dark; they call or text just to see how you’re doing and if you need anything. On holidays they want to know how you and your family are. Not just you, your whole family. They really care about you. David has surrounded himself with some of NYC best lawyers and it shows.
Great job by The Perecman Firm.

Usman Ahmed Ahmed Law Firm
Excellent experience with attorney Sagar Chadha at The Perecman Firm.
I hired Attorney Zachary Perecman, with the Perecman Firm, after an initial consultation. After not seeing progress with prior attorneys, Zachary was able to win my case. He was always professional and kept me informed about my case. He made sure that I was cared for as a client, and always went above and beyond to answer my questions; and ensure I understood everything that was happening with my case. I am very grateful to Attorney Zachary Perecman, who worked tirelessly on my behalf. I would recommend Attorney Zachary Perecman and the Perecman Firm to anyone seeking to be valued as a client and looking for a successful outcome.
The Perecman Firm is one of the best, if not the best, personal injury firm that I have ever dealt with. They do good work.
The Perecman Firm work diligently on my case and are my warriors they are a blessing to have on on my side I highly recommend them to anyone to be represented by them in a personal injury litigation case.
The Perecman Firm is made up of a group of outstanding people that are experienced, knowledgeable and professional. The level of kindness, compassion and support that everyone in the office had was particularly important in my situation.
I will never be able to thank them enough for the outcome, and that every part of the process was handled with the level of personal support and humanity that made the most difficult days tolerable. I would like to mention that Peter Rigelhaupt went above and beyond any and all of my expectations of what to expect from a lawyer. I thank them for all of the hard work and time that they dedicated to settling my case.
I have referred a number of cases to Steven Dorfman, Esq of The Perecman Firm based on his knowledge, reputation and responsiveness.
When life sends you a curveball and the unexpected happens, I recommend that you look no further than The Perecman Firm. I would recommend the Perecman Firm as a first choice to anyone in need of a law firm with a professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and caring staff.
The Perecman Firm has been a blessing to my whole family. They have helped my mother in every single step along her Disability Case. As a Cancer patient, stress and frustrations are part of her daily routine, but having them on our side has taken the stress away of not knowing what to expect. The Perecman team and especially Silvana Leone is what my mom calls "A Gift from God" and for that we will always be grateful.
Where do I start? I gave the firm 5 stars, and if I could do 10 I would’ve. I thank God every day for giving me a second chance in life and for my family and for Carissa and David at The Perecman Firm. You always hear that lawyers only care about themselves, but not David Perecman and Carissa Peebles. They really do care about you. From day one, all they ever thought of was how they could help me and make my life easier. They always call me to see how I am. When I was at work, I had an accident and my left dominant hand was cut off and couldn’t be saved. I’ve had five major surgeries and as I was going into the second one, my beautiful wife Kim asked me, “What would you like me to do while you’re in surgery?” I said just get me a great lawyer. She typed in her laptop “Best Law Firms,” and The Perecman Firm popped up. She called them and the next day Carissa and Adam were at my bedside in the hospital. Adam is another great lawyer at The Perecman Firm. David is very smart to surround himself with all these great people, and that’s why the firm is so successful. Of all the law firms in New York City, I’m very happy that my wife found them. They are truly professionals and human. The caring part of it all really is amazing. I’ve been through a lot in the last three years, and they have been with me every step of the way. Going from being left handed for 52 years to learning all over again and trying to do things right handed does a lot to your head. Just to do the small things in everyday life that we as humans take for granted is harder than you think. I try every day to stay as strong as I can. Carissa always calls or texts me to ask that simple question. How are you today? I know that may not seem like much to you, but when you’re hurt and you think no one cares, they do. It’s really nice to know that some people in this world do care, “even in NYC.” If I ever have a problem with Workman comp or a surgery, they are right on top of it every time and take care of the problem. If you ever find yourself in need of a lawyer, this firm goes above and beyond the five stars. To the people that work at The Perecman Firm, I say thank you very much. To David and Carissa, you guys are my angels. God bless.

David Perecman and his team at The Perecman Firm are top-flight attorneys who are very experienced, professional, and a pleasure to work with.
Kimberly Schirippa Lester Schwab Katz & Dwyer LLP
I am extremely satisfied with my experience at The Perecman Firm. The entire staff, from attorneys to paralegals to support staff, treats you like family from the moment you walk in the door. Everyone is responsive and always makes themselves available to answer and address any questions and concerns. I feel confident with their representation and know I am in good hands. I would recommend them to my family, friends, and anyone in need of personal injury representation.

I, without hesitation, recommend The Perecman Firm to clients with personal injury claims.
Stuart Serota Kaufman & Serota
The Perecman Firm is well-known and well-respected to those who work in the NYC Construction Trades. They are a visible presence at Union rallies and fundraisers for causes that are important to those in the construction unions in NYC and surrounding area. They have done great work for some union brothers I know whom have had the unfortunate experience of being injured on the job. When I was injured, there was really no one else I would put my financial future in the hands of, let alone the financial future of my family. It's not just the advantage their knowledge, professionalism and expertise bring you in the courtroom that makes them stand apart; it's their activism in the protection of all construction workers and their lobbying to make sure that sites are safer and workers are protected. This is what sets David Perecman, Steven Dorfman, and all the people at The Perecman Firm above the rest. I don't know where I would be without them.
Thank you Mr. Saga of The Perecman Firm.
The team at The Perecman Firm are very nice people.
The Perecman Firm has been extremely professional and has consistently given me the impression that they care about me as a client. My attorney, Sagar Chadha always takes his time to answer my questions to the best of his ability and if there is something he doesn't know, he tells me he's not sure and he looks into it.... and then he gets back to me! I don't have to follow up with him or hunt him down. I've been represented by other firms and attorneys that rush me off of the phone and make me chase them when I need something. The Perecman Firm has always treated me like a human being and an ongoing client, even when they don't have anything to immediately gain from working with me. That seems to be there business model and I don't know why more law firms don't follow this. I'm sure it pays off in the long run.
The Perecman Firm is very professional and met my expectations.
The Perecman Firm has very honest people
The Perecman Firm is extremely quick at taking care of any problems that arise. Problems are taken care of on the spot. As everyone knows problems come up with doctors, pharmacies, and insurance companies. The Perecman Firm is very efficient with their paperwork. They call me just to see how I am doing and keep me in the loop all the time. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a lawyer who truly cares and understands that your life is in shambles when you get hurt and really want to help you. They make you feel like you are their number one priority.
Mariusz J. Sniarowski of The Perecman Firm has great knowledge.
My experience with The Perecman Firm so far has been very good.
Adam Hurwitz was my attorney at The Perecman Firm. In addition to his considerable experience and knowledge, Adam was patient and kind. My wife and I appreciated his responsiveness and how he took pains to make sure we understood what was going on and why. We wouldn't hesitate to use Adam again or recommend him to others.
Steve Dorfman was the most considerate, thorough, and communicative attorney I have ever worked with. His attention to detail and focus on getting my legal matters resolved was outstanding. In addition to his ability to execute with excellence, he is compassionate and truly cares about his clients. I would refer anyone that needed an attorney to Steve Dorfman at The Perecman Firm without a moment of hesitation.
The Perecman Firm is professional all the way, without pandering or ambulance-chasing. Their Labor Law capacity (though not my situation) was very appealing and fit with my values. The Perecman Firm has super supportive attorneys and staff.
I have been referring my personal injury clients to the The Perecman Firm for more than fifteen years. During that time period, the firm has consistently demonstrated the ability to obtain maximum recovery for my clients with personal injury claims. In some instances,
the recovery was obtained by way of a very favorable settlement and in others, the recovery was obtained by way of jury trials. The firm makes every effort to obtain the recovery a client is entitled to whether that involves a settlement, a jury trial, and if necessary, pre-trial and post-trial appeals. I recommend the The Perecman Firm without reservation for the handling of serious personal injury claims.
David Perecman and The Perecman Firm offer aggressive, diligent, highly successful representation of injured plaintiffs. The lawyers at this firm are highly skilled, dedicated and caring. Their clients are fortunate to have this firm on their side.
David Perecman of The Perecman Firm should be listed as the "Dean of Labor Law" in New York City. He consistently wins large verdicts and/or negotiates top-dollar settlements for his clients.

The Perecman Firm was an absolute pleasure to work with. Professionalism, care, consideration and a special trust was built over many months of working together on my case.

The Perecman Firm is an excellent law firm, especially Mariusz Sniarowski who is intelligent, smart, sensitive to client needs, very polite, friendly, and an extraordinary superb lawyer!
The most important thing about The Perecman Firm is that they treat people like they want to be and need to be treated in times of distress. They are good human beings, all of them, from the receptionist to the top dog himself. If I ever have a question or need help everyone is there for me at all times. If every law firm was like this one people wouldn’t hate lawyers so much.
I’ve worked with The Perecman Firm for six years, and personally I am very pleased with the professional and high level of expertise that I’ve experienced. From the first day, the attorneys clearly explained the process of my case and how long it may take. They responded to all my questions very promptly at any time. Overall, I had a very good experience with this law firm, and I would recommend it to anyone.
The Perecman Firm was with me every step of the way; every phone call was taken seriously and the expertise of the staff were second to none.
David Perecman and The Perecman Firm went above and beyond with their professionalism and caring. When everything was said and done, I left with a new friend. He really understood. He was just so sincere and caring. Going through the process was bad, but they made it that much better.
The Perecman Firm is compassionate, sympathetic and friendly. Everyone in the office is easy to talk to. It's a great firm, and I wouldn't hesitate to refer them.
