Ira M. Perlman is the founding member of the Law Offices of Ira M. Perlman, P.C. & Robert D. Rosen, P.C., which has offices located in Manhattan and Great Neck, Long Island.

A top-rated personal injury and medical malpractice trial attorney with more than 35 years of total legal experience, Mr. Perlman provides unmatched representation and support to clients throughout the New York City metropolitan area, who have suffered significant and serious injuries as a result of someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence.

As an attorney, Mr. Perlman believes that his clients’ voices and circumstances need to be heard and understood in the wake of a preventable accident or tragedy. He has gained a reputation for relentlessly fighting hard to protect the rights and entitlements of those he serves in order to help them obtain whatever monies and other damages are necessary to make his clients and their families whole again under our laws and judicial system. This means recovering the maximum amount of compensation for any injuries, lost income, pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment in pursuing activities of daily living suffered by a client or any pecuniary losses for families who have suffered a tragic loss of a loved one.

Mr. Perlman was born into the real world of law as he is a third generation trial attorney in his family preceded by his father and grandfather who were both successful and renowned trial attorneys in the metropolitan area. Mr. Perlman stepped foot into a courtroom very shortly after being admitted to the Bar to try his first case over 35 years ago and he has never looked back since. He has worked tirelessly many a night and weekend to deliver full and fair justice on behalf of his clients by maximizing their recoveries and doing so with the utmost compassion and respect. If that means going to trial because his adversary or an insurance company doesn’t want to reasonably or fairly evaluate his client’s case, then so be it. He is personally involved in every case taken on by the office and he doesn’t believe in delegating important tasks such as depositions, hearings and trials to other lawyers who are unfamiliar with the case In this regard, he and his partner are constantly strategizing over every detail of a client’s case so that at the end of the day he knows he did what was needed to be done and what was right. Mr. Perlman’s persistent approach and the personal attention he provides have gained him a reputation throughout the years for delivering superior results to those he serves.

From his efforts, Mr. Perlman has secured numerous substantial settlements and verdicts for his plaintiff clients who have all been unfortunate victims of negligence or malpractice. Whether it was the recent $2.5 million settlement after years of hard fought litigation to get to the truth involving the wrongful death of a motorcyclist caused by an improperly designed intersection, the $ 2.1 million recovered for a construction worker injured due to unsafe labor/jobsite practices or the $1.3 million settlement for the wrongful death of a patient who didn’t receive proper medical care post-surgery, Mr Perlman continues to fight the fight. He has many other substantial settlement and verdict awards including those in excess of a million dollars for clients that have been injured in car accidents, construction accidents, mass transit accidents, building premises accidents, sidewalk accidents, school accidents and/or victims of medical malpractice.

Recognized as one of New York’s top attorneys, Mr. Perlman has been selected to the Super Lawyers list in 2020, 2021 and 2022. Mr. Perlman has been selected to the 2022 list as a member of the Nation’s top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel.

The recipients of this prestigious award have demonstrated the highest ideals of the legal profession. He has earned consistent top rankings and endorsements from his peers, including recognition as a Top 100 Trial Lawyers from the National Trial Lawyers. He is also a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He has also been recognized multiple times by Top New York Verdict publications for his verdicts and settlements. He is also an active member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice and the Nassau County Bar Association.

Mr. Perlman graduated from Syracuse University, cum laude, in 1981. Thereafter, he attended Brooklyn Law School graduating in 1984.
