Lee Pearlman

Lee Pearlman was born and raised in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, a small town just outside of Harrisburg. He went to Northern York County High School, and attended college at the University of Maryland, College Park where he received two bachelor of arts degrees and two minors. Lee also studied at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia for 6 months in 2002. While in college he enlisted in the U.S. Army Reserve and served two years in the Military Police. After college Lee moved to St. Petersburg where he attended Stetson University College of Law. While there Lee was a member of Stetson's top nationally ranked Trial Team and Alternative Dispute Resolution Board. He was the recipient of the Ralph Harris Ferrel Competition Award and The National Order of Barristers for his performance on those teams. Lee also served a judicial internship with the Honorable Donald E. Horrox in the Sixth Judicial Circuit, Pinellas County.

After graduation Lee accepted a position with the Pinellas County State Attorney's Office, where he also interned during law school. During his time as an Assistant State Attorney Lee tried over 87 jury trials, ranging from 1st degree felonies to 2nd degree misdemeanors, including all traffic related citations and crimes. He served in county, traffic, and felony courts and dealt with every aspect of criminal law, including writing multiple successful appeals and handling Executive Assignments from the Office of the Governor.

After leaving the State Attorney's Office Lee accepted an associate position with the law firm of Carlson, Meissner, Hart & Hayslett, P.A. As an associate Lee handled all aspects of criminal defense, including trials, motions, and appeals on behalf of his clients.

After his tenure at Carlson & Meissner Lee decided to start his own law firm with his friend and former Assistant State Attorney Andrew Tetreault. When Lee and Andrew started the law firm of Pearlman & Tetreault, P.A., they agreed the sole focus and attention of the firm should be their clients, believing constant access and communication should always be available to those who put their faith in Pearlman & Tetreault. With this belief and the desire to help people in their time of need, Lee and Andrew believe themselves to be situated to help their clients achieve the best outcomes with the least amount of stress, fear, and complications possible.

Jeremy Clark

Jeremy Clark is a partner who focuses mainly on personal injury and criminal defense cases. His background and personal experiences have molded him into a relentless trial attorney who gives his all on every case.

Jeremy was born and raised in Clayton, North Carolina. He went to high school in Clayton and went to college at Campbell University in Buies Creek, North Carolina. He graduated magna cum laude at Campbell University with a degree in Trust Management (B.B.A.). After college, Jeremy left North Carolina to go to Stetson University College of Law. It was law school where Jeremy began learning what it means to be a hardworking trial attorney. He was a member of Stetson's #1 nationally-ranked advocacy team. He traveled the nation representing and competing with this program. Jeremy also received many awards while at Stetson University College of Law. The law school awards the top advocate in each of its trial advocacy classes. This award is called the Victor O. Wehle award. Jeremy received this award in December 2008.

Jeremy also received the Walter Mann award in December 2008. This award is given to a single student in a graduating class who has shown the greatest potential for being an outstanding leader in the legal profession. In addition to these awards, Jeremy received the William F. Blews Pro Bono Service Award for performing outstanding pro bono service during law school. Jeremy graduated cum laude in law school, meaning, he graduated in the top 20% of his graduating class. After law school, Jeremy began working at a firm in downtown Tampa, Florida called de la Parte & Gilbert, P.A. There he was an associate who practiced commercial litigation and personal injury law. In 2009, Jeremy joined the Public Defender's Office in the Sixth Judicial Circuit to pursue his dream of becoming a trial lawyer. As an assistant public defender, Jeremy handled thousands of criminal cases and dealt with thousands of criminal defendants. There's not much he hasn't seen as a criminal defense lawyer. He tried several felony and misdemeanor cases, such as Driving Under the Influence ("DUI"), Battery, Felony Battery, Grand Theft, Petit Theft, Fleeing or Eluding, and has handled attempted murder, arson, and sex charges. He's also extremely familiar with Florida's sentencing enhancements, such as PRR, HFO, VCC, and 10-20-Life.

Beyond trying cases, Jeremy has argued many motions to suppress. In one case, Jeremy successfully argued a motion excluding all of the state's evidence on a case where the client was facing mandatory life in prison. After his position at the Public Defender's office, Jeremy decided to join Pearlman & Clark, P.A., to form Pearlman & Clark, P.A. His decision to join this firm was simple. Pearlman & Clark were never afraid to fight for justice. That was their belief before he joined. And it's now the motto of Pearlman & Clark, P.A..
