For close to four decades, as one of the leading personal injury trial and appellate lawyers in New York City, David Perecman has successfully handled all types of personal injury and accident cases, including those involving construction sites, trip and falls, automobiles, and medical malpractice. Mr. Perecman has to his credit an expansive list, spanning decades, of numerous multimillion dollar verdicts. He, along with his firm, has recovered hundreds of millions for his clients over the course of his career. He puts a unique combination of knowledge of the law, medicine, construction, engineering, economics, and a host of other topics together with his engaging humor, talent, experience, and passion, all to great persuasive effect. He wins cases others shy away from and his results often surprise even other trial and appellate lawyers of his stature.

We Fight For You.
We Fight For Change.

The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C., has been ranked Tier 3 in New York City personal injury litigation – plaintiffs by Best Law Firms® for four years in a row, among a very elite group, the top 20 personal injury firms in New York City. Mr. Perecman has personally been selected to the Best Lawyers list each consecutive year since 2008. His credentials and victories have earned him national recognition on NBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, and in The New York Times, NY Post, and Daily News. Not only does he continue to be actively involved in the political scene and work tirelessly to preserve consumer, civilian, and workers’ rights, but Mr. Perecman is actively making case law through the cases he litigates. Civil rights lawyers are heaping praise for the groundbreaking decision resulting from a case Mr. Perecman recently argued in front of New York’s highest court where he vindicated the rights of a woman incarcerated for four years because of a coerced confession.
