Summary

Michael Perenich is a third generation personal injury attorney. His grandfather, Guy Perenich began the firm now known as Perenich, Caulfield, Avril, and Noyes in 1955. Following in his father's footsteps, Michael's father Mark Perenich began working for the Firm in 1984. Michael spent a lot of time in the office growing up; becoming an attorney and working with his father and grandfather was a natural evolution for him. Michael was born in Clearwater, raised in Tarpon Springs, and now lives in St. Petersburg. He graduated from East Lake High School then studied Philosophy, like his grandfather, and graduated from the University of South Florida. While at the University of South Florida Michael was selected to be a member of the Ethics Bowl team. Michael helped the team place third in the southeast region. He was also elected to be the Vice President of the campus Philosophy Organization. After USF, Michael went to Loyola University, New Orleans College of Law. While in law school, Michael interned for Honorable Judge Robert Morris of the Second District Court of Appeals. He also participated in a study abroad program in Budapest Hungary, and Istanbul Turkey (International Transactions, and Central European Legal Systems). During his third year of law school he was accepted to study at the University Of Florida Levin College Of Law where he received the Honorable R. Grable Stoutamire Book Award (highest grade) in American Legal Thought, as well as a distinction in Trial Practice. Before personal injury, Guy Perenich was an adjustor for an insurance company. Guy witnessed the unjust and unfair power insurance companies had over the average person. Michael's grandfather built his firm on the premise of "fighting for the little guy." This is a torch that has been passed down to Michael, and he carries it with pride. Michael enjoys traveling, wakeboarding, hiking, mountain biking, soccer, reading philosophy, cooking, Volkswagens, and performance car tuning.
