Awards Given to Our Attorneys

Signs of Integrity, Passion, & Skill

At The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., the awards that are most important to us are the ones we win in court on behalf of our clients. However, we also recognize the value of awards from our peers, such as the one given to us by The National Law Journal for the last seven years.

Accolades such as these are not important for their own sake. Rather, they serve as symbols of our firm’s relentless devotion to our clients and to victims of negligence everywhere. This is why we value these awards — because they reveal the truth of what we do.

The most prestigious awards in the legal community are not the result of popularity contests or political maneuvering. Instead, they are the result of excellent litigation, proven results, and genuine contribution to the field of law. These are the accomplishments and recognitions in which our attorneys take pride.
