My son got into some trouble . Attorney Peter Lawton said and did exactly what he said he would do.
It was a complicated case. Believe me you just have to trust him. Peter 's family is a third generation firm.
He graduated from Boston College and it shows. He talked over our heads, he is so smart. Just let him do his thing. He is like the best actor in court. His work is priceless.
he helped me out with a criminal matter at what he said was a reduced rate ($2500 which i thought to be a little high for a reduced rate) and made same initial promises in first meeting - likes to hear himself talk but don't all lawyers? he was on time,. professional and got me a satisfactory plea even tho he wanted to try my case - i was too scared to go thru with a trial.
Made a great 1st impression telling us the case had too many holes in it and he would be able to help, no problem, get some things removed under motions, get bail reduced, etc. No motions were ever filed and bail wasn't reduced, in fact, it was increased. We were not informed of this possibilty. It seems it was nothing more than a good sell. He will call you almost daily but not for anything but more money. Even asked us if we had a second home he could put a lien on. He seems only interested in the $.Stay with your public defender, which is where we are now, we have no $ left for a good lawyer or bail or find someone else. Don't be foolish like me, we have basically no $ so we put it on a credit card, now I'll pay twice. Thank you Peter for all your help.
