About Us

Perera Barnhart is a Firm focused on offering the highest level of legal service without comprising personal service and attention. The Firm was founded by J. Freddy Perera, Esq. and Valerie Barnhart, Esq.  Freddy and Valerie first struck a friendship as friendly rivals at the top of their law school class.  Through healthy competition, they pushed each other.  They challenged one another to maximize their respective potentials.  After law school, both Freddy and Valerie worked a number of years for separate large, highly-regarded law firms.  Ultimately, however, Freddy and Valerie decided to join forces.  Their shared passion for excellence and attention to detail make them the perfect law partners.  Now, as in law school, Freddy and Valerie continue to push each other.  Push each other to get the best possible outcomes.  Push each other to maintain the highest levels of integrity in the practice of law. This time around, however, they are on the same team.  And, our clients are the ultimate beneficiaries.
