I endorse this lawyer. Peter is a consummate professional and a true officer of the court. He conducts himself with honor and is courteous to everyone, including opposing counsel. When you want a lawyer to argue your matter before the judge or jury, you want one who exhibits exemplary knowledge of the facts and law, and equally important, one who addresses the court in a conversational and deferential manner. Peter persuades fact finders because this is the only way he knows how to represent clients. Other lawyers may take your case, but if you can persuade Peter to accept your case, choose him and win.
