My name is Martin Perez. I became a lawyer to help individuals and families fight against a legal system that is often stacked against them. My entire legal career has evidenced a passion for seeking justice for my clients, giving a voice to those who have been silenced. I value and serve them, regardless of background. I grew up on the south side of Chicago, as the son of immigrant parents. Through their hard work and sacrifice, I learned a host lessons that have shaped the person I am today. Hard work, fighting with integrity and taking advantage of valuable opportunities have all been the building blocks for my work.
In over 17 years as an attorney, I have successfully represented thousands of individuals. I have successfully fought to reunite families and keep individuals in the United States to care for their children, spouses or parents. I help victims of Domestic Violence and other serious crimes remain in the United States with their families and to obtain lawful permanent residency and citizenship. I have traveled throughout the United States to fight for my clients. I consider it an honor to represent people from all corners of the world in pursuit of their American Dream.
I’m not just a lawyer. I’m a father, a husband and an active member of my community. I’m a trustee for my local church, a coach, and a mentor. I volunteer my time and service to numerous worthy causes. In keeping with my passion for service, I am not afraid to work with my hands and do a bit of heavy lifting. “A leader is one who know the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” John Maxwell
