I was faced with a felony conviction followed by two violations and a very high likelihood of a jail term. The facts of the case, the appropriate punishment, lets face it meant nothing. My fate was based upon the mood of a prosecutor and my lawyer utilizing everything he knows about the law and leveraging relationships. I told Peter I wanted a nolli. He got me a misdemeanor without violations, jail time or extended probation. Peter managed the process, leveraged his relationships and unlike most of the attorneys I've watched, chose to make it work without a dozen continuance's at 500 a shot.
The icing on the cake was hearing another lawyer sitting on the bench behind us whisper "Nice, Nice job Peter congrats". Thanks Peter. I'm okay with you spending that nolli you keep in your back pocket on the next guy...I couldn't be more pleased!

Needless to say, I did not envision myself encountering a divorce so early in my relationship but Attorney Billings provided the much needed stability to guide me through the complex legal process. While it seemed like everything around me was in disarray, Attorney Billings proved to be extremely trustworthy, knowledgeable and communicative while he navigated the situation and kept my best interests as his priority. Together with his affordable rate, his top notch service is something that I will forever be grateful.

Hiring Peter Billings for my criminal case was one of the best and most important decisions we have made in our lives. Without the investment of time and knowledge that Peter contributed to my case I definitely would be yet another innocent person serving a prison sentence for a crime I did not commit. Before we met Peter my fiance and I cried daily because we was led to believe there was no hope for an acquittal and I was encouraged to take a plea deal that involved jail time by two other attorneys. I was reserved to my fate and was about to give up when we met Mr. Billings. Since his introduction to my case my fiance, our three children and I became filled with great hope because we finally found an attorney who believed in us and had a plan to fight the case brought against me. We now had my freedom to look forward to. Our sleepless nights became sleeping nights, because my attorney explained the case clearly and honestly and he always made sure that we understood the good and the bad. Peter came to our home for many of our meetings to discuss the case and he never had any time constraints as well as field questions from our family. During these discussions Peter talked to us as if we were family or good friends; the level of compassion he exudes was very important to us, because it renewed our faith in humanity.
Although this was a job for Peter, by my estimation we did not pay him enough. We make that determination base on the time he invested and the success he brought to my case. If the outcome of my case was unfavorable, even with the disappointment of knowing truth did not prevail, my fiance and I know in our hearts we received the best representation possible. Thanks to Peter we are able to close our eyes at nights and rest peacefully without any fear of a prison term hanging over our heads. Peter Billings is more than a top notch attorney; he is a good friend, a humanitarian, and a man of honor, who we would highly recommend for any criminal defense case. To quote Peter, "I am a criminal lawyer and I work hard at my job" and he never faltered in proving this through his tireless effort in his handling of my case. We will forever be grateful to Peter and now I feel I owe him my life.

I cannot possibly find the words to describe the service that Peter Billings afforded my daughter-in-law, my son and for that matter my entire family. I am truly appreciative of all he has done including the extra effort he extended during this case. Peter took on the child negligent/ abuse case against my daughter-in-law after two other lawyers practically provided zero help while encouraging her to accept a plea deal involving prison time even though she was innocent. Peter took the case and hit the ground running and never stopped until the case was dropped. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field; he is timely, shows passion and great responsibility to his clients and the work he does and continues to do. He has gone above and beyond his scope of duty to assist us in every way possible and he is even open to suggestions. We never felt rushed in any meetings, while discussing the case, and whenever he provided information about the case he omitted nothing and his explanations were always crystal clear. Peter Billings was worth far more than he charged, and he never made us feel as if it was about the money. He exemplifies the title of a great lawyer and a wonderful person. We will forever be grateful to him. If you want the best possible chance of good representation, I highly recommend Peter Billings for any case you might have, because I know with certainty even if the case is not in his area of expertise he will make a great recommendation for you.

We hired Peter Billings to represent my sister in law against a child endangerment and neglect case. At the time we hired Peter he was the third criminal defense attorney we had employed during the course of two and a half years. Peter was highly recommended by another attorney since he would have been less costly. I must say my family and I were extremely impressed from the moment we met him, because he was very knowledgeable of the case and was well organized during our first meeting and a trait he maintained the entire time he worked on the case. Peter picked up the case while an unwanted deal was being offered which would result in her serving a period of 3 years in prison and 5 years probation. Peter was very dedicated to the case he worked the case from all ends to ensure that all areas of concerns we taken into consideration, such as immigration status and etc. he kept us fully informed. Ultimately, after 1 year of court hearings we were completely prepared for trial, but by the grace of God Peter was able to get all charges dropped and my sister in law can rest assured that she will be there to raise her 3 young children... Thanks to Peter! I HIGHLY recommend him, because he is very devoted, honest and he will work your case as if it's the only one he has.... I assure you will NEVER regret hiring him.

I sought Mr Peter Billing's legal services in pursuant to my motor vehicle case. Since this was my first ever experience and being a non-resident I was extremely nervous and terrified with the whole situation. I was referred to Peter by Mr. Kevin Ferry on contacting his law firm. Not only he charged me a nominal fee, he was very upfront in his communication and helped me getting required continuances. Apart from managing to get my case dismissed he also helped me with official letters after 1 year when I required them.
I found him to be a very trustworthy and honest attorney whom you depend on. I most definitely recommend Peter for those in need of legal services.
