    • I recommend Peter Parlow.
    • I hired Peter 1-3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I am in the financial industry and sought out Peter Parlow to represent me in my divorce case. I had a complex situation which involved promissary notes and bonus agreements between myself and my employer. Peter was able to represent and convey to the concilliator and the other party the restrictions and obligations regarding the notes and bonuses accurately which allowed the assets to stay in my name. He always acted in a professional manner and always made you feel that he had your best interests at heart. His billing and how he bills is extremely fair. I would highly recommend Attorney Peter Parlow to represent anyone whom may need an attorney.

    • I recommend Peter Parlow.
    • I hired Peter 1-3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was arrested on multiple criminal charges including misdemeanors and felonies in 2 different courts. He worked great with my other court appointed attorney while I was held on revoked bail. Peter and I went to trial for my criminal charges and he was very informative to ALL MY OPTIONS. In a 6-Person Jury Trial I was found NOT GUILTY of my charges.

    Throughout the entire case from arraignment to verdict Peter fought for me. He fought very hard to reduce bail and was even congratulated by members of the the public. for his work in my matter. He was also great the way he communicated in with my family members and parties of interest.
    I would highly recommend Peter Parlow as a attorney.

    • I do not recommend Peter Parlow.
    • I hired Peter 1-3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Family matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    we hire peter to represent us in a child custody issue with the father of the child.

    peter was slow to respond to phone calls, offered bad advise by telling us not to go in for court ordered drug test on day it was ordered by court, got a negative test result which would have gotten visitation re instated, but the test result were consider inadmisable in court because it wasnt done on day ordered by court. $3,000 dollars down the drain.

    peter was only responsive the first consulation. there is no office, no support staff, not what you would expect for $300 dollar per hour attorney.

    • I recommend Peter Parlow.
    • I hired Peter 1-3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I am not the type of individual to leave feedback or reviews but in this case I felt it necessary to do so to share my positive experience with others.  Over the years I had several different attorneys represent me in family court and with each attorney I always came away with a unsettling feeling.  I always felt as if I was not provided proper guidance and as a result, I most likely did not come away with results that were fair and equitable for me.  
     
    However, that all changed recently.  During my most recent case for Child Support Modification, I felt compelled to terminate my relationship with my first choice for legal counsel halfway through my case for similar reasons mentioned previously.   I was never comfortable with changing counsel in the middle of the process but I knew I had to begin trusting my instincts, which is something I never did in the past. During the early stages of communicating and strategizing with this attorney, I began to experience the familiar uneasy feeling that I was potentially being led astray and would come away with unfavorable results.  Further, the attorney only seemed interested in settling and collecting 100% of their retainer so she can move on to another case.  
     
    Knowing I had to make this critical change in switching legal representation, I began researching attorneys that are experts in Child Support Modification cases.  During my research I came across Attorney Parlow's contact information and autobiography and I was impressed.  I gave him a call to review my case and I can easily say without any hesitation that it was one of the best decisions I made in many years. From our initial conversation, I finally felt I found an attorney that had my best interests in mind and was not predominantly focused on immediately settling and collecting the retainer. Information flow between client and counsel was second to none and I truly believe this is a critical component in having exceptional representation to ensure success. Having Attorney Parlow represent me provided me with a comfort level I never experienced before and I knew he was going to provide me with the greatest opportunity to receive a favorable response.
     
    Furthermore, life can be complicated and sometimes you don't have the time or energy to deal with the many issues that arise during these types of cases.  This is where having strong legal representation is invaluable.  If you are in need of a professional, thorough, sharp and most importantly, an experienced attorney that has your best interest in mindcounsel, then you do not need to look further. In fact, I plan on keeping Attorney Parlow on retainer for future assistance if needed.  As it pertains to cost, Attorney Parlow's billable hours was extremely reasonable and he was always mindful to ensure time was not wasted to ensure the retainer was more than enough to cover all legal costs. In conclusion, Attorney Parlow is an honest and upstanding individual and I highly recommend him only to those that demand excellence from their legal representation.
