5.0 out of 5 stars

I've been a client of Law Offices of William Pernik for a few years now. I've been seeking legal counsel on many situations, some of which had to do with selling possibly prohibited various goods nationwide, some related to cannabis, and others with best course of action to be taken to avoid legal trouble. His law firm gave me excellent advice every time. While I hope it will never come to this, I rest easy knowing I have access to a knowledgeable attorney in case I get into serious legal trouble.
