    I was under the impression my case would prove to be long and exhaustive. Perry and his knowledgeable team far exceeded me and my children's needs, and wrapped up the case in under six months. Perry is not your typical family law lawyer. He took the time to understand the details of my case showing compassion and understanding. He handled all details and proved why his name is well known in his field. I am grateful for his years of experience and kindness. Read less

    Perry would not take a case he did not believe he could win. The comfort zone with him was beyond belief. He found information we thought was unattainable.

    Perry represented me in my divorce in 2009. There are multiple reasons I would recommend Perry, but foremost he kept my best interest and my kids best interest in mind when he drew up our divorce papers. It is a difficult process to go through no matter what the circumstances, however he kept our future in mind. I am still reaping the benefits of his knowledge and expertise in all areas. He was very easy to contact- when I needed him I could actually talk to him and it didn't cost me the farm. Read less

    Perry was extremely caring from the minute I walked in his office the first time. Divorce is an extremely painful process, but he made it as painless as he possibly could. I highly recommend him.
