Overview of the history, vision, expertises, and culture of the firm
Pearlman & Miranda was founded in February 2014 by Stephen B. Pearlman, Isabel Miranda, Deborah S. Verderame, and Patricia J. Ryou. Although only recently established, the firm retains the sophisticated, cutting edge practice developed by its lawyers at their previous partner positions at some of the most prestigious law firms in the State. Central to the vision of the Firm’s founding partners, legal and related expertise is not just applied to the assignment at hand, but wherever possible and applicable, to promote societal good. See, e.g., the Renewable Energy Law and Social Investment Law practice areas. On September 28, 2015, the Firm was certified as a Minority Business Enterprise and a Women Business Enterprise (MBE/WBE) in New Jersey; in New York on May 26, 2016; in New York City on June 16, 2016, and in Philadelphia on March 21, 2016.
Based on their expertise and reputations among clients, industry colleagues and peers, firm partners have maintained enduring client relationships, some spanning decades. In addition to the innovation, dedication to task and accessibility of these lawyers, clients continue to look to the Pearlman & Miranda team because of their understanding, respect and empathy towards their clients’ needs and circumstances.
The level of firm attorney experience is also well regarded by law journal editors and state legislators, among others. The former have frequently commissioned articles from them to publish in their law journals. See the Publications section. The latter have asked firm attorneys to draft or comment on original legislation, many forms of which have been enacted into law.
Innovation is another hallmark of the firm’s vision. National government agencies, The New York Times, and academicians in the United Kingdom, have all written on the many new concepts originated by the firm’s attorneys that have since been adopted as industry wide standards. See the News section.
Pearlman & Miranda lawyers are committed to demonstrating that the highest quality client service can be achieved without sacrificing the elusive, but fervently desired law firm culture that nurtures, respects and promotes its most important asset, its people. One of the firm’s partners captured this driving spirit in a phrase that reverberates for all: “We are a Firmaly.”
