Robert Perry is a seasoned and talented trial attorney who served as a Burlington County and Camden County Assistant Prosecutor for over a decade before joining the Firm in May 2015. As Partner and Head of Criminal Litigation at Rosenberg | Perry & Associates, Mr. Perry focuses his practice on defending those who have been charged with criminal conduct.

He represents individuals and entities charged with serious Felonies in Superior Court as well as Misdemeanors and motor vehicle offenses in Municipal Court. Additionally, Mr. Perry practices Education Law, representing students and families who are denied resources and due process rights from School Districts. Mr. Perry is also a zealous advocate for public employees who are facing administrative charges or require representation at administrative hearings.

Mr. Perry believes any citizen accused by the Government of committing a crime is entitled to a vigorous and aggressive defense by a lawyer who understands the client's individual needs and circumstances.

Mr. Perry is also Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Criminal Trial Attorney. There are over 40,000 Attorneys in the State of New Jersey. Less than three hundred (300) have been approved by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Certified Criminal Trial Attorney. This designation is more than just a specialization. The Supreme Court employs a rigorous vetting process wherein an attorney must possess substantial criminal trial experience, receive exemplary assessments from both Judges and Opposing Counsel alike, and pass a comprehensive written evaluation of Criminal Trial Law.

Mr. Perry brings a unique background to the defense of his clients. For over a decade prior to joining Rosenberg | Perry & Associates (formerly known as Daniel M. Rosenberg & Associates), Mr. Perry was employed as an Assistant Prosecutor in both Burlington County and Camden County. During that time, he managed thousands of cases through all stages of the criminal justice system, from Juvenile Criminal Court Matters to Murder Cases in Adult Criminal Court. Mr. Perry personally oversaw litigation of dozens of matters from investigation to jury verdict. Mr. Perry's unique and notable experience as a former Assistant County Prosecutor sets him apart from the vast majority of Criminal Defense Attorneys.

As an Assistant Prosecutor, Mr. Perry received training exclusive to law enforcement on broad ranging investigatory and legal topics. Mr. Perry attended the "Finding Words" course wherein law enforcement officers are trained on questioning techniques and methods for investigations into child sexual assault matters. Mr. Perry also attended the National District Attorneys Association course on Forensic Evidence in San Antonio, Texas.

Aside from his vast training and background, Mr. Perry has also litigated and tried a broad spectrum of criminal matters, including Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, Drug Distribution, Robbery, Sexual Assault and Murder. In particular, Mr. Perry is one of the few criminal attorneys who has litigated numerous matters wherein the Prosecution utilized DNA evidence and digital forensic evidence. Mr. Perry is also experienced in Mental Health issues in the Criminal Justice System. As an Assistant Prosecutor, Mr. Perry was one of only two (2) Prosecutors charged with litigating Krol matters wherein the defendant was deemed Insane or Incompetent to stand trial.

Outside of the practice of law, Mr. Perry is a sought after lecturer in higher education. In addition to having lectured for Law Enforcement Academies for Police and Correctional Officers, Mr. Perry is a Senior Adjunct Professor at Rowan University - Burlington County College, having taught classes on Criminal Law and Procedure for over five (5) years. Mr. Perry also serves as an Adjunct Professor for the Trial Advocacy Program at Rutgers School of Law.
