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.

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.
