Perez Sports Associates was founded by brothers John and Bryan Perez and represents a dream turned into reality. The roots for Perez Sports started when the Perez Brothers were very young. Football was their life. It was their passion.
Unfortunately, neither of the Perez Brothers was blessed with enough talent to one day play professionally. At a very early age, John and Bryan starting formulating their business plan with the ultimate goal of one day representing the best athletes in the world: professional football players. In accordance with their plan, both brothers attended William Paterson University of New Jersey. John enjoyed a productive college football career as a starting fullback and team captain. Bryan spent his time studying film and continuing his education as it pertained to the NFL Draft and player scouting. The Perez Brothers each acquired the skills necessary to accurately evaluate tape from two perspectives: As a player and as an evaluator.
They knew, however, that more than just a college degree was needed to offer the best representation to their future clients. Both brothers attended law school, successfully receiving their Juris Doctor Degree from Quinnipiac University School of Law in Connecticut. Today, both John and Bryan are licensed and respected attorneys in the State of New Jersey.
