Union Pride

Thousands of Workers Served. Hundreds of Millions in Compensation Recovered.

The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., has proudly helped thousands of workers from a range of building and construction trade unions following workplace accidents, and has recovered more than 50 verdicts & settlements of a million dollars or more for our clients in the last five years alone. We’ve also secured legal victories in cases that have helped shaped New York Labor Law and essential protections for construction workers.

Union Pride Since 1983

Having proudly served union workers and their families since 1983, we know how very important labor unions are to keeping New York City moving, and how union laborers and tradesmen have helped create one of the largest and most prosperous metropolitan areas in the world.

Over the years, our firm has built real relationships with the hard-working men and women who comprise our union communities, and has supported many initiatives, events, and legislative efforts that benefit union workers.

Our blog, In the Media, construction accidents and workers’ compensation pages are great places to learn more about our union pride and the work we’ve done with union workers. They’re also great resources for news, helpful information, and feature articles written by our firm’s attorneys about workplace safety and workers’ rights. If you have a potential claim, you can read about some of our results in cases that may involve the same issues you face, and how our firm helped clients prevail.

Led by Attorney David H. Perecman, one of the most experienced and successful construction accident lawyers in New York, our team is comprised of a former union Business Agent and union member, construction site safety experts and engineers, and former police officers working as investigators.

We’re thankful for the trust union workers continually place in our team during times of need, and are proud to represent them in their fight for fair compensation.
