"Life Saver" - 5 Star Client Review on

“Mr. Pernik took the time to know me as a person and to also know my family. Not only did he fight for the best outcome for me, but he also was available to answer my questions 24-7. I felt very protected and calm when Mr. Pernik would enter the court room with him. I can't thank him enough for his hard work and dedication on my case. He saved my livelihood.” (Posted by a client on on October 4, 2015)

If you are looking for an attorney that is sharp and can think outside the box then this is the man you want on your side.  He was amazing when handling my friend's case and I can't express enough gratitude and appreciation for his exceptional skills as an attorney.  I agree attorney's can be expensive and he seems fair in his prices.  If you don't have the funds, he works with an individual's financial situation.    

When first looking for an Attorney, the reason I chose Mr. Pernik was because he has many qualities that I felt were important.  Not only did he graduate cum laude because of his excellent grades, in many of his cases he has successfully obtained a number of acquittals and dismissals.  He also is a recipient of the Cali awards which is earned only by law students with excellent achievements in their studies as determined by their professors.  He has a lot of experience handling difficult and complex cases which he was successful in.   I can go on and on but I truly feel that if you need an excellent attorney you should definitely contact Mr. Pernik.   I know that from my experience that if I ever know someone with a problem that requires an attorney, I will refer them to this man.  Thank you William for all your help!

Won't find a better attorney, my name is Justin. I had a domestic charge, guy had my back the whole way he knows his sh#t, doesn't matter what kinda charge u got - he will back u up. Been four years, he still remembers me. Good friend and attorney - if you are in trouble, take my word: he's good.

I called William after being arrested for a DUI. William was very friendly and checked on the status of my file for free. He let me know what was going on and asked me to call back closer to my court date and he would check again. Turns out the county is not pursuing DUI charges. I called 3 other attorneys regarding my arrest and William stood out as the most honest, hard working and compassionate.​

"Great Work" - 5 Star Client Review on 
"I was fighting a DUI prison case. Those cases are usually very black and white for judges. Mr. Pernik guided me in the right direction so my case turned out very beneficial for me. His statements are very well put together. He is a to the point guy and genuinely cares about the outcome of his clients. He is by far the best attorney I've had."

From A.C. 
You often hear a lot of horrible comments and experiences from people about Attorneys that promise outcomes or take money away and do nothing.  I must say Mr. William Pernik is an exemplary exception to this rule.  I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mr. Pernik and his professionalism as an attorney and his compassion for his client's rights.  He is an example of what an attorney should be.  Mr. Pernik has very high standards when looking into a case.  He tries to find all the options available with the best outcome.  He also is very honest and empathetic towards his client's situation.  He will do whatever it takes to make sure a client has the fairest and most just outcome when being represented.  I referred him to a family friend and what could have possibly been a felony and misdemeanor turned out dismissed.

5 Star Yelp User Review

"Mr. Pernik will work tirelessly for you. He will not take no for an answer from the District Attorney, he will look after you, like a family member. He definitely knows the law, and will do further

investigations, research; which helped my case a lot.  You will not regret hiring him as your legal counsel. I honestly, cannot thank him enough for his dedication, hard work, and patience with my case that lasted over 18 months. If, it was not for him, I would not have received the outcome that I did. I will ALWAYS be grateful to Mr. Pernik." (Yelp review posted on January 14, 2016 by Rob. M.)
