We are a law firm focused on labor and employment law, all aspects of corporate law, and civil litigation.
While our founding lawyers J. Freddy Perera, Esq. and Valerie Barnhart, Esq. have a big firm background, we are not a big firm. We don’t want to be. Instead, we are dedicated to providing a personalized experience to go along with the legal solutions you expect.
Our clients need not be transferred from department to department, provide a case number when reaching us, or wonder what lawyer is actually working on their case. Our clients are not reduced to a client number or a name on a lawsuit. We take the time to know you and your objectives.
We are more than advocates—we partner with you to navigate through complex and sensitive legal issues.
A personalized legal experience is worthless without effective advocacy. At Perera Barnhart, we represent entities and individuals. We have experience representing the full scope of parties—from large companies, to public entities, to high level executives, to everyday workers fighting to recover minimum wage and overtime wages. While many firms focus on just one side of labor and employment disputes (representing only employers or representing only employees) we believe our broad experience provides a distinct advantage in litigation.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Firm Family.
