Kent T. Perry & Co., L.C. (the "Firm") is a law firm small in size but large in experience and breadth.
Our past has provided experience in areas of law that historically have been the exclusive province of either large firms on one hand or smaller boutique firms on the other. That work history has caused us to bifurcate the content of this website into two categorically different areas for the convenience of those using it. That division, between Corporate and Commercial Clients and Small Business and Individuals Clients, hopefully permits an early determination of our suitability based upon the nature of your legal issue.
