Mr. Perskin is admitted to practice in New York State and before the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts.
For 26 years, Brian D. Perskin served as a powerful advocate for his clients, guiding both men and women through difficult divorces and complex family issues. His tough, sharp approach to litigation coupled with his dedication to his clients has enabled him to best achieve his clients’ goals and safeguard their interests, whether he is dealing with complex matrimonial issues, custody cases, or other family law matters. Attorney Perskin’s deep commitment to his clients enables him to serve them in a more powerful way, fighting to protect their interests as if each of their cases were about his own family.
It is this devotion and passion that has led to him achieving one of the highest ratings on Avvo, an unbiased rating system based on an attorney’s background and reputation. While these ratings are based on information from public sources, state bar associations, court records, regulatory agencies, and published sources, this high rating reflects the sincere personal commitment Attorney Perskin makes to each of his clients. It depicts the tireless effort and rigorous work he constantly devotes to protecting the interests of his clients and their families.
Attorney Perskin does not only dedicate his time to his own clients, but to advancing legal knowledge more generally, too. He frequently speaks on topics related to family law, such as on the use of depositions in marriage proceedings, custody elevations, and judges’ opinions on equitable distribution. He has also written on subjects related to divorce strategy, fathers’ rights, custody rights of non-parents, pension fund assets and attorneys’ fees. Most recently, he published a book titled Winning Divorce Strategies, in which he maps out the most effective way to achieve one’s goals in a divorce. Attorney Perskin’s hope is to make divorce and family law issues easier for those undergoing them, and to devote his legal career to serving individuals in need of legal guidance through such challenging times.
In addition, Attorney Perskin is married and has three children. While in college at Brandeis University, he also studied at the London School of Economics. He is a major hockey fan, including being a lifelong New York Islanders fan, and welcomes the team to Brooklyn.
