Location: New York, New York, United States

Zachary Perecman, Attorney at The Perecman Firm LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in personal injury and medical malpractice legislation.

After serving as a law clerk with the Perecman Firm LLC from 2013 to 2015, Mr. Perecman has provided superior service as an attorney with the firm since the latter year, specializing in in securing compensation for my clients who often have suffered after being seriously injured in construction accidents, car crashes, premises incidents and civil rights matters, regularly regularly obtaining multi-million dollar settlements. Mr. Perecman has been ranked among the state’s top attorneys by Super Lawyers  and US News Best Lawyers.

Mr. Perecman is responsible in handling different aspects of personal injury cases, document discovery, representing his clients, appearing in court which is now done mostly virtually due to Covid-19. He is also involved in management and oversees the majority of the marketing. He oversees the Intake Department and the finance aspects in the firm.

A personal highlight of Mr. Perecman’s career includes the first case he worked on after graduating from law school when he was instrumental in convincing the New York Court of Appeals to overturn a unanimous lower court dismissal of The Perecman Firm’s malicious prosecution case against The City of New York. The matter involved a woman who was wrongfully accused of murder and imprisoned on Rikers Island for 4 years. This decision led to a $4 million dollar settlement right before trial.

Following obtaining a Bachelor of Science in business management and administration with a minor in music in 2009 from the University of Miami, Mr. Perecman continued his education with a Doctor of Jurisprudence in social justice advocacy in 2014 from New York Law School. He thereupon served as a judicial intern for the Honorable Justice Sallie Manzanet-Daniels, New York Supreme Court, Appellate Division, First Department. His professional memberships include the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, New York County Lawyers Association, Jewish Lawyers Guild and the National Trial Lawyers.

Mr. Perecman attributes his success to his willingness to learn, maintaining a sense of humility, and understanding that in his profession he will never be able to know everything or know how to do everything, and there’s always going to be people who are better than him whom he can learn from. His goal in the coming years is to obtain some more trial verdicts. He would like to take on a leadership role and gain more trial experience.
