David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm P.L.L.C, was listed as one of the top personal injury litigators in New York by New York magazine. He was featured in the June 19, 2014 edition of the magazine in the section, New York Law Journal Presents: Personal Injury Litigators 2014. The lawyers profiled were described as “talented individuals…who are raising the bar for success in their field.” Each lawyer had achieved one of the top verdicts in New York in 2013.
The section focused on attorneys who handle any number of personal injury cases, including slips and falls, auto accidents, building collapses, brain injuries, asbestos poisoning, and more.
This year, Attorney Perecman and The Perecman Firm made the list of New York’s Top Verdicts and Settlements with a $7.98 million verdict on behalf of a dock builder who suffered a foot injury that ended his career.
The verdict was just one of Attorney Perecman’s many multimillion-dollar results in his nearly 40 year career. Since founding his firm in 1983, Perecman has won more than $200 million for his clients, who include victims of all types of personal injury, from construction and auto accidents to medical malpractice.
“I’ve been handling cases for nearly four decades and I am not satisfied with settling a case for less than its top value based on the reputation I’ve been lucky enough to have achieved,” Perecman said in New York magazine. “A $6 million case is a $6 million case, and settling it for $4 million just doesn’t work for me.”
In addition to this honor, New York magazine mentioned that Attorney Perecman has received a number of other significant recognitions from his peers. He has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America since 2008 and Super Lawyers since 2007. The Perecman Firm is also ranked among the top law firms in New York City for plaintiffs’ personal injury litigation, tier 3, by U.S. News – Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms.”
