I had an initial consultation with Mr. Herbst, and although we determined that he would not be the best person to help me, he was happy to refer me to other resources. I found him to be helpful, easy to talk to and understand, thoughtful and thorough. I would not hesitate to contact him again if another opportunity arose to utilize his services.
Peter Herbst was a pleasure to work with. My husband and I went to him to put together a Will and Power of Attorney - and while I knew this was an important venture, I really had no idea what goes into creating these documents. Peter walked us through the entire process so that by the end, I was completely comfortable with all the information and even more comfortable with the future of our family.
We are so grateful to his services - he was always prompt, responsive, and explained things in a comprehensive manner. We have already recommended him to our family and friends.
I would absolutely work with Peter Herbst again. He took the time to carefully review the facts of my situation, did his homework, and came back with a recommendation for me to avoid litigation and instead to proceed with a settlement, since litigation was unlikely to actually achieve my goals and would have been highly divisive in my family. This impressed me since he'd have made a great deal more money if I had proceeded with litigation - Peter clearly had my best interests at heart. He was extremely tactful and helpful in some tricky family estate settlement negotiations and two years later, I'm happy to say that everyone in the family is talking to one another and relations are amicable all around (pun intended). Turns out it can be super handy to have a lawyer on your side of the table!
