Perskin & Associates to represent me in my contested divorce. Right off the bat, I could tell that Brian and his Associate Attorney, Sara Jane Bullard, were the right fit for me. They were experienced, knowledgeable and attentive to every question I had, and every challenge we faced along the way. You can tell that Brian’s been doing this for decades and knows the overall divorce process like the back of his hand, as well as the ins and outs of the complicated court system. I was impressed with the way Brian was able to advocate for me. He wasn’t scared to speak up and really fight for me, while at the same time making sure not to overdo it; as not to anger the judge or the opposition. Sara Jane aka Janie, is a rising star. She is so easy to communicate with and is extremely detail oriented. I never had to worry that something I asked her would go unanswered or something she said she would do wouldn’t get done. As my ex would consistently complain about how her attorney, Deana Balahtsis, would forget to provide pertinent information to her, and hardly respond to her emails, I felt so lucky I didn’t have to deal with that at all. One of my biggest fears when hiring an attorney was the cost. I was worried that I was going to get hit with ridiculous fees. With Brian D. Perskin & Associates, this was not the case at all. I was kept in the loop and made aware of how much things would cost along the way. There weren’t any frivolous fees and unlike my ex, I was never held hostage, with work grinding to a stop unless I made a payment the minute I was sent an invoice. Brian and Janie are terrific attorneys. You can tell they love what they do and truly want to help. I would 100% recommend both of them to anyone looking for a competent and experienced divorce attorney. read less

I needed a last minute pre-nuptial agreement - despite being engaged for over a year my now husband thought it would easy as pie to do a week before we left for our wedding. Fury wouldn't begin to describe how I felt that week. The only thing that made it remotely tolerable was Megan Clancy at Perskin & Associates. She was recommended to me by the brother of one of my best friends, so I admit I went into this with some baseline trust. She understood my anger, frustration and anxiety as well as the time crunch I was in. She was honest and upfront with me about what I can and should expect from her - what her experience was, any limitations, that her role was to make sure I got out of the agreement what I wanted, that she would review the agreement as soon as she received it, give me advice and do the negotiations with the other lawyer on my behalf. She explained the whole process so that I knew exactly what to expect the whole way. She kept to her word at every step, I was impressed most by her empathy, responsiveness (I received emails and phone calls almost immediately after sending or if not an explanation as to why), quality work (she fought for my side 100%, I was extremely satisfied) and her patience. I wanted to understand exactly what the legalese meant, and she spent more than 2.5 hours one morning going over line by line with me and all my questions so that I fully understood what I was agreeing to, and it didn't seem to bother her one bit. In short, I couldn't have been more satisfied by her work, her demeanor and professionalism, her empathy and understanding. read less

It’s vitally important to have the best legal representation possible and I’m grateful that Evan Sekular was there to protect my interests and negotiate a fair agreement. My primary concern was 50/50 custody of my two boys and Evan never wavered or considered accepting anything less. Evan took the time to explain every issue and I was able to understand my legal position throughout the whole process. Due to his vast experience Evan was able to remain resolute during negotiations and often pointed out when certain demands were just “posturing” by my wife’s attorney and that there was no need for concern. As I said divorce is difficult and Evan not only provided fantastic legal advice but his personable and affable demeanor were so welcome and reassuring each time we met at court or in the office.I can not recommend Evan Sekular more highly and I am grateful for his service and his friendship.Sincerely,Don Kenna read less

I remember when I started reading through Yelp reviews for divorce attorneys....It's a rocky road that you will get through. If you are going through this difficult process, I cannot recommend Brian and his team more highly. My case was worked on mostly by Brian and Jennifer. In thinking back I remember all of the fears of starting the process of becoming a client in a divorce case. I was worried about the typical and obvious concerns- that the attorney could drag the process and fees unnecessarily. I was worried that the attorney would be too bulldog like and make the process seem like a war. I was worried that because I was not a wealthy client, that I would not be listened to, nor my case given a high priority or attention....and many other concerns. But this firm handled my case in the way that I could only describe as what I was hoping for going in... I could give all the details and examples that would make this review become pages long, and personal, which I do not wish to do. I will just say that in every way that a divorce firm and it's attorneys can make the difficult process happen in a respectful, professional way, they did. read less

I was seeking visitation of my 9 year old granddaughter who lived with me since birth along with my daughter and had moved out with her boyfriend. During our consultation, after explaining all the facts to him, he told more than 5 times he has been doing this a long time and that my daughter would be back. He also informed me that visitation is not as easy as it seems but he would get it for me. I truly believe he would have. It wound up I did not need his services in the end because he was so RIGHT. My daughter's boyfriend kicked her out that same day and moved back in with me the following day. read less

A divorce was the last thing I expected; on top of that, the last thing I expected was that I’d need a divorce lawyer. But my wife had one, and unfortunately her lawyer mirrored her anger. After meeting with five other lawyers, I walked into Brian’s office for a consultation. He listened to me, saw my distress, understood my concerns – being a man, notably a man of color, who loved his children dearly and cared about nothing else except shared custody, a chance to be the father I wasn’t able to be while married. Fearing tender-year court rulings, Brian comforted me, gave me the facts, promised me that eventually my wife, who wanted sole custody, would come over to my side. That was all I needed to hear.The firm worked behind the scenes, while I tried my best to work through my trauma of divorce, attempt to piece together an idea of what my future was going to look like. I was forewarned by Brian that a contested divorce would be expensive, especially since we had property and young kids. She had lawyer and were building a case against me. I worked in education and didn’t make much money. Brian was pragmatic, but excited about the opportunity to help, recognizing that all I wanted was to have equal time with my kids.Brian defended me to the point that he and my wife’s lawyer became like oil and water. After our first court appearance, Evan, a partner at Perskin and Associates, was added. Evan was calm, personable, with a knack for persuasion. While Brian brought the fight and energy and experience, Evan brought negotiation to the table. He was able to temper the tension between his firm and my wife’s lawyer in order to move past the anger and accusations and focus on the matter at hand: custody.Evan’s attention to detail was greatly appreciated. He ability to talk me down when I felt the need to react and defend myself was important. He was honest with me, told me things I didn’t want to hear and didn’t believe but ultimately was what was best. Like Brian he defended me tirelessly also, while reminding my wife’s attorney that neither he or she as our counsel were never present in our marriage and for that the truth was hearsay, and that all I wanted was equal time with my kids.Brian and Evan together did the work needed. Their knowledge and experience was unquestionable. Weeks would go by and I wouldn’t hear anything from them but there was always progress. I appreciated having a firm I trusted enough that I didn’t care to be involved in the minutia of my case or engage in the mudslinging coming from my ex's corner. Stay the course, was how we approached my divorce, and I am more than happy with the outcome. The settlement they got for me was worth every single penny.Highly recommended. read less

He was the second attorney I consulted, and the first who seemed both competent and trustworthy. Ours was a seemingly simple case, but Brian took the time to walk me through the range of possible outcomes and patiently answered all of my many questions. He encouraged me to try to reach an agreement with my wife without retaining attorneys, even though ran contrary to his own financial interests. When it became clear that my wife had no intention of using mediation, I retained Brian’s firm and my case was assigned to Dina Botwinick, his senior associate. What we expected to be a straightforward case and a quick settlement turned into a three-year endurance event, as my wife’s attorney did everything possible to delay any movement. By the end, the case had been assigned to three different judges and one referee, and formally adjourned five times, with hearings cancelled or delayed on several other occasions. I had suffered a serious health crisis that, for a time, left me unemployed and insolvent, and Dina had prepared time and again for court appearances that were sabotaged by opposing council on a few hours’ notice. My wife’s attorney consistently refused to even discuss a settlement until every possible delay had been exhausted and we appeared for trial. Only then, and only by his clear willingness to aggressively represent my case at trial, was Brian able to negotiate a favorable settlement before the special referee.Throughout this entire, multi-year process, Dina’s professionalism and zealous advocacy never wavered, nor did Brian’s support and counsel. My emails were returned within a couple of hours, if not minutes, and every telephone or in-person conversation I requested took place within a day of, and often the same day as, my request. The legal representation I received was beyond reproach, but Brian and Dina surpassed even that standard: Dina was an invaluable source of ongoing support while my health hung in the balance, and, even when my ability to pay for their services was in serious question, the quality of their work and their commitment to see the case through were unwavering. I cannot recommend Brian Perskin and Dina Botwinick highly enough for anyone who requires representation for divorce proceedings. read less

Mine was a challenging divorce, and I was always provided solid and timely advice and opinion...even if it wasn't what I wanted to hear. Not everything in the law makes sense or is fair, but Evan always patiently walked me through my options and offered his advice on next steps along with likely outcomes. If you find yourself in need of a divorce attorney, I can't recommend this firm, and Evan, enough. read less

Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant. When I first met Brian and his associates, I met with Dina first, I felt at ease, she explained everything to me and didn't care about the million and half questions I asked her over and over again.Brian is very personable, approachable and has a good relationship with the court as well as a strong professional network with other attorneys. He has many years of experience and has seen all sorts of tactics that nothing really surprises him anymore. He is sensible but also a passionate advocate when you are dealing with a case like mine, one that ended up being a bit more difficult then I realized. Brian is a straight to the point kind of man, yet tough when confronting non-reasonable people, and will provide protection not only for his associates but also his clients, when needed.Brian and his Associate, Dina are also no push over's. There were periods where I couldn't believe what was happening with my case, when in my head it should of been super easy, but my ex did not make it so. Brian pushed for me powerfully, passionately, vigorously to come to a fair settlement. Brian later told me that he protected and confronted who he had to because he felt that it was the right thing to do. His associate Dina, also did the same for me.Brian and his associate Dina have been more than dedicated attorney's to me during this past year. I am very appreciate for their support, service and dedication to give the best counsel without wasting anyone's time or money. They like to get this process done as smooth as it possibly can be done, it is not always like that, but they definitely help ease that pain. Thank you, Brian! and Thank you, Dina! read less

I was served with papers the day before Thanksgiving and very freaked, but Brian promptly responded to me during Thanksgiving week and provided the assurance I needed during that difficult time. My case was settled out of court and quickly--no doubt to Brian and his team's prompt responses and negotiation skills with the opposing counsel. I have no doubt Brian excels in trial, which prompted me to hire him in the first place, in the event things went to trial. Although my only experience was with a divorce and no child custody issues, I am confident Brian and his team are skilled in other family/matrimonial law matters. If I were to ever get married again, I would definitely consult him for a pre-nup! I highly recommend Brian Perskin & Associates! read less

He is a man of integrity who truly believes in the legal system and defies the common stereotypes often attributed to the legal profession. Once I began working with him, he was always well prepared and performed extremely well in the courtroom. His attention to detail, integrity and inherent kindness set him apart and have helped to renew my faith in lawyers.Not only was the outcome better than I expected, I was impressed by Brian's work. I have worked with many lawyers in the past, and most of them have left me feeling frustrated. Not only did he keep me well informed with letters and copies of all correspondence, Brian returned every call I made to him within hours. I would recommend Brian to anyone I know!

Somebody once gave me this advice: If you’re going to get married, don’t get divorced. But if you’re going to get divorced, don’t get divorced... read moreSomebody once gave me this advice: If you’re going to get married, don’t get divorced. But if you’re going to get divorced, don’t get divorced in New York.It wouldn’t be long before I found out how true that advice was. My ex-wife filed for divorce in September of 2011, and the horrible experience began. Divorce in New York is a nightmare of exasperating laws, clogged courts, and overworked judges. Finding an excellent lawyer is imperative. Unfortunately, I started with a divorce attorney who left a great deal to be desired, and led me down many wrong paths. We were offering too much in settlement discussions, and she wasn’t getting much of the necessary paperwork done. In exasperation, I fired her and tried vainly to represent myself for about a week.And then I came to my senses and hired Brian Perskin. Definitely the best decision I made during the whole process. Before hiring his firm, I was overwhelmed with the work the case required and the anxiety it was producing. But after talking to Brian, getting his take on the case and being reassured by his complete understanding of New York State Divorce Law, I knew I was going to be taken care of. Brian and his associate Evan Seckular immediately took control of my case, filed all the paperwork that needed to be filed, cleaned up the terrible legal mess my previous attorney and I had created, and put me on track for what would be a settlement that was very strongly in my favor; most important, he mounted a vigorous case that resulted in my winning primary custody of my two children. Not only that, but he was able to convince our judge to order my ex-wife to pay some of the court proceedings, which was unexpected since I was considered the “moneyed” spouse, and under New York State law, the “moneyed” spouse virtually always pays. Brian and Evan persuasively argued for the exception.Their ability to do so wasn’t a surprise. When you sit through divorce proceedings, you soon find out that some attorneys are respected by the judge, and some are not. It was very clear that both Brian and Evan were well liked and highly respected by the judge assigned to our case, a testimony to the reputation they have crafted in the New York Supreme Court. But perhaps the best testimony to Brian Perskin and Evan Seckular’s reputation and skills comes neither from me nor from the admiration of the judge: on the day I arrived for my first court date represented by Brian, my children’s attorney and, believe it or not, my ex-wife’s attorney both came up to me and told me I had made a very wise decision.They were absolutely right. Brian Perskin and Evan Seckular were brilliant, and have my unwavering gratitude. I can now put a miserable chapter in my life behind me, and I was able to do so much more to my advantage and much more quickly than I would have been able to do without their representation.
