Mark Perenich is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and Multi-Million dollar advocates Forum: a distinction given to attorneys that have won over a million dollars for their clients multiple times. The multimillion Dollar advocates forum was established in 1993 is one of the most exclusive and prestigious memberships amongst trial attorneys or personal injury lawyers. There are about 4000 members throughout the United States, fewer than 1% of practicing lawyers are part of the multimillion dollar or million Dollar advocates forum. Most of the top personal injury lawyers are members of the million and multimillion Dollar advocates forum.
The hallmark of a million-dollar advocate is that the personal injury lawyer is able to take a complex case, or catastrophic injury, and argue on the behalf of the client to ensure that they are receiving just compensation for their injuries. Cases that settle for over $1 million or are rare, this is not the normal case for all clients.
Typically million-dollar settlements or verdicts come from cases where clients have been severely injured, have experienced serious loss, maybe they had been paralyzed, lost a close family member (wrongful death), or the case is so egregious that juries find what the defendant did morally reprehensible as well as legally reprehensible and may impose punitive damages on the defendant. This is why if you or family member has been seriously injured, whether it be from a car accident, or medical malpractice you should contact an experienced personal injury lawyer today. You should be sure to look for an attorney that has been board certified, orders a member of the multimillion dollar advocates form, or has years of experience and has a good reputation in the community. I have felt numerous clients in the Tampa Bay, St. Petersburg area receive settlements that they deserve and that clients are happy with.[/
• B.C.S./Expert/Board Certified- Only those lawyers who are members of Florida Bar association and have been certified by the Florida law board to have specialization in various field of law can use terms like – “Expert”, “Specialist”, “B.C.S.” or “Board certified” to identify themselves and use it in their Business cards, Letter Heads, Legal Directories or in Advertising. Not all lawyers practicing in the state of Florida are certified but only those who have taken the initiative of getting their competence and experience evaluated are given Board certification.
• Awarded to– The Board certification is only awarded to and recognizes attorneys having skills, special knowledge and proficiency in various areas of law and those who demonstrate ethics and professionalism in Law practice.
• Evaluation & Testing – Board certified lawyers are tested for their expertise in the field of law and are evaluated for the professionalism they demonstrate in their work.
• Certification to Identify- The board certification was established by the Florida Supreme Court in the year 1982 as a measure for clients to identify specialist / experts in the various areas of Law.
• Competence & Experience – Board certification is the highest recognized form of evaluation for an attorney’s experience and competency in the 24 different areas of Law that have been approved by the supreme court of Florida.

Mark is no longer board certified, the reason this happens is that many cases will settle prior to trial. Ultimately an attorney will need to keep the clients best interests in mind, and if that means not going to trial and losing your board certification, then so be it. Man lawyers that handle common car accidents have never been board certified, and if you don’t plan on hiring Mark then you should consider hiring an attorney that is reputable in the legal community, or one that is/was board certified.
