Attorney Jose Perez

About a decade ago Jose Perez was delivering pizzas. But these days,  the Ithaca-born, Venezuela-raised attorney is getting his clients sweet deals f0r personal injury, immigration and business contracts. He talked about his personal journey during an entrepreneur forum sponsored by The Upstate Minority Economic Alliance (UMEA) on Friday. The event was held at the Southside Innovation Center.

Perez also shared some business advice. Here are some of his tips for getting the most from your next negotiation:

  • Present a concrete case
  • Prepare for disputes
  • Consider unconventional deal structuring
  • Don’t be afraid to leave the table
  • Bring the big guns (use leverage when necessary)
  • Avoid quick fixes

What if Mayor Miner reached out to President Obama and expressed interest in housing unaccompanied immigrant children awaiting deportation in our city. What do you think people would  say? How would they react?

Here is a visual interpretation of the debate that occurred on the corner of Court Street and Grant Avenue on Friday afternoon.

We anticipate a lively discussion of this issue when George Kilpatrick hosts the drive time slot on 570 WSYR next week.
