Brittney Salvatore-Perkins

There are lawyers, and then there are lawyers who are always there for you.   One client posted review that stated, “Brittney is available 24/7 from the moment you retain her to the completion of your case.”  Now, 24/7 might be a little exaggeration because lawyers need to sleep too.  But, that is the general sentiment you hear from her clients.

Brittney gets a large percentage of her clients through recommendations from her past clients.  This is because client’s feel she is accessible, knowledgeable, and competent.  One recent client said, “I never doubted for one moment that my case and my son’s future wasn’t a main concern of hers…With Brittney on my side I knew I would win my divorce and custody trial.  She is the best and simply awesome!”

This is no surprise. Brittney is excellent at winning divorce and custody trials.   She’s also become a champion at speedy divorces.  She has excellent mediation skills and possesses an amazing instinct for negotiating.  When a new case starts, Brittney will focus on finding the leverage to settle the case amicably, quickly and in her client’s favor.

Brittney attended Santa Clara University where she graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications. She continued on to earn her J.D. from Santa Clara University’s School of Law in 2011. While in law school, she was awarded the Leon Panetta research fellowship, and served as an editor on the Journal of International Law. Brittney is licensed to practice law in both Nevada and California.

Personal Insights

What made you want to be a lawyer? My parents are kind of hippies, after the tsunami in 2004 they quit their jobs and moved to Thailand to do relief work. While there, they linked up with an organization that helped asylum seekers gain refugee status. I spent the summer in Bangkok with them writing appeals for these individuals. I worked alongside a team of international lawyers. I saw how effective their writing and knowledge was. The seed was planted, and I knew I wanted to be a lawyer after that.

Most memorable case? I represented a dad in a custody matter when the mom tried fleeing the country with child. What started as a modification of custody turned in to an international abduction case. The FBI got involved. When the mom and child landed in Israel, they were returned stateside. It was incredible to see the law and agencies working together to make this all happen.

Do you have any hobbies? I love basketball (both watching and playing). I was the president of the Law School Basketball Association. I set up scrimmages against our professors. All the students would come to watch.  It was great.

What is an unusual skill or talent you have? I love to cook, always looking at creative ways to get my kids (and husband) to eat veggies. I will hide them in anything from smoothies to sauces to brownies.

What is your favorite country to visit? We’ll that is a tough question because I’ve visited a few dozen countries.  I’ll break it down this way. The most unique country is Tibet. Most incredible people are from India and the Philippines. I would love to go back to Italy.
