For more than 30 years, David Perecman has been one of the leading personal injury lawyers in New York City. Perecman has championed all types of personal injury cases, including construction accidents, premises accidents, automobile accidents, medical malpractice, and all other types of serious injury cases. Mr. Perecman has won millions of dollars for his clients over the course of his career. Together with his firm, Perecman has recovered more than $350 million in verdicts and settlements for clients.

From the beginning of his legal practice, Mr. Perecman has proven himself as a skilled and tenacious advocate for the injured throughout New York. He founded The Perecman Firm in 1983 after winning a $600,000 verdict against the now-defunct department store Gimbels for falsely detaining an elderly woman when an antitheft device set off the alarm. Since then, he has taken dozens of personal injury cases to verdict and settled many more mid-trial. Mr. Perecman has become one of the top personal injury lawyers in New York City by combining extensive and relentless preparation with first-class litigation skills to achieve winning results. He starts planning his strategy as soon as a case comes in the door. Whether before a judge or a jury, he spares no expense in employing first-rate experts and cutting-edge technology to great persuasive effect.

"Every case has its weaknesses," Mr. Perecman says. "It is the job of a good personal injury lawyer to ensure that they do not diminish the ultimate value of your claim." Mr. Perecman, a 1975 graduate of the State University of New York at Albany and a 1978 graduate of Brooklyn Law School, serves on the executive committee and the board of directors of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association (NYSTLA), a prestigious lawyers' association. In 2005, Mr. Perecman was chosen by NYSTLA to be its head New York construction accident lawyer overseeing the committee related to commercial and residential construction accidents.

Additionally, Mr. Perecman lectures to other New York City personal injury lawyers and court personnel on construction accident law. He is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court, New York State and the U.S. District courts of the Southern and Eastern districts of New York. His credentials also include the role of a commentator on Court TV. He is listed in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the National Register's Who's Who in Executives and Professionals. *ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do no guarantee a similar outcome.
