Renee Perillo and Richie Perillo

Summary: A lawyer was targeted for murder in divorce battle.

Lawyers as agents of justice inspire ire and rage in those who feel unfairly treated. One divorce lawyer, involved for seven years in representing somebody against a Florida doctor in a difficult divorce battle, came to realize how personal things can get when a girlfriend of that man, and her son, ended up in the back of her car at her own home, equipped with a syringe and surgical drug that would have paralyzed her. It is suspected the two had intended to kill her.

Things didn’t go down that way. The lawyer’s husband entered the car, and soon figured out the situation.

“I noticed this pair of shoes in the back of her Suburban … It registered in my head that, you know, there’s socks in these shoes, there’s feet in these shoes,” he later explained.

He detained the pair until cops arrived, but after their arrest, they bonded out of jail and disappeared. Only days later did the son, Richie Perillo, fall into the hands of authorities in California, with Renee Perillo caught in Montana on Monday.

“I know the only reason I’m here today is because my husband got in that car and not me,” said the lawyer, who has chosen to keep her name confidential.

“I’m hoping that anybody and everybody who has had any involvement in assisting the Perillo’s or anybody else who had any part in this is charged,” she further said. “Knowing that the reason these people were here was my fault because of my involvement in a case and that I had put my family at risk … is probably the most difficult thing I’ve ever gone through in my entire life.”



Feeling such guilt is natural, but winding up in difficult situations is inevitable in life, even for those who don’t lawyer in difficult divorce cases.
