Carrie Jannazo

Director of Operations and Business Development

When Carrie Jannazo joined Perenich Law Injury Attorneys in 2018 she brought deep experience in marketing, including 10 years working with law firms. Because the founding attorneys – three brothers from a large family – focus on family first, Carrie knew that Perenich was the right fit for her.

As the Director of Operations and Business Development, Carrie’s role is to help the firm strengthen relationships that the Perenich family has built over two generations through active involvement in a wide variety of community activities. She also leads a seven-member team supporting the attorneys at five area locations.

Carrie has coordinated the firm’s participation in many events, including a turkey giveaway for 250 families in need, the Wheelchairs 4 Kids Celebrity Golf Tournament, the Mitchell Swayze Page Memorial Tennis Tournament, and feeding the homeless at Pinellas Hope.

One of her favorite programs is the annual bike safety event which was attended by 350 people in 2021 and featured officers from the Clearwater Police Department Bike Team. Carrie also coordinated with local vendors to give away six bikes and 18 helmets for children, as well as a gift certificate for an adult bike.

The oldest of seven siblings, Carrie earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Toledo before moving to Florida. She and her husband have two children who are active in sports, and when she is not busy cheering on soccer or gymnastics, she enjoys reading, cooking, and live music.

Carrie believes that attitude is everything, and the lens one uses – either positive or negative – impacts how people interact with each other. For her, a positive mindset that is based on compassion, while not ignoring the difficult situations that clients face, empowers the Perenich team to overcome challenges, work for justice, and provide clients with hope.
