Alan and his team were phenomenal! They returned all of my phone calls and answered all of my questions. He was super patient with me and walked me through every step of the legal process. I felt so comfortable with him. He really knew how to alleviate my concerns. The best part of all is that he won every one of my cases. He's my attorney for life! Over the past 5 years I referred over a dozen people to him.
Alan saved me from a terrible immigration mistake I was about to make. I had met a girl from another country and after a few months we began talking about marriage. We had come up with a cockamamie plan to try to bring her here on a tourist visa. The first thing Alan said was, 'I can't work on something like that because it's not honest. You are thinking about marrying her and that's not what a tourist visa is for.' I hadn't really thought about it that way, but he was right. But I thought it was the only way to get her here. (She's form a country where it's not easy to get to America).
Then he explained to me how doing it on the up and up was not only the honest and legal way to do it but it was the only way that would actually work. He showed me how if we had gone for my (idiotic) tourist visa plan and it didn't work, that not only would she not be able to get here on a tourist visa, she would never be able to get here on a fiance visa either.
As he told me all this while I was sitting in his office I wasn't convinced he was giving me the best advice because I was so sold on the dumb plan we had come up with. But when I left his office and began to think about what he had said, I realized he was absolutely right. There was no reason to jeopardize her chances of eventually getting here by trying to shortcut the system.
So two lessons here. Forget about all the so-called free "legal advice" you can find online. We non-lawyers can be too easily fooled into thinking these people actually know what they're talking about. They don't! Hire a real attorney! And two, find an honest attorney like Alan who's not going to cut corners. It'll save you a ton of headaches down the line.
I really appreciate Alan for the excellent advice and for saving us from my own bad plan.
Having never been in the position of being accused of such serious crimes, naturally, I was filled with many different feelings regarding the charges I faced. Uncertainty on how to prove my innocence, and confusion on where to begin were among them.
Upon first meeting Alan Peyrouton I was immediately impressed with the genuineness and earnestness of his character. After discussing the facts of my case, Alan explained in detail what the process going forward would entail and I knew I could trust his legal expertise to prove my innocence. Throughout the entire process Alan provided me with routine updates on interviews he conducted and motions he filed on my behalf. When we went to trial, he effectively cross examined witnesses and was able to expose their lies and inconsistencies in open court.
Thanks to the legal expertise of Mr. Peyrouton I was able to prove my innocence on all charges, and we won full dismissals of all charges against me. My family and I are very thankful to Alan for all the hard work and dedication he provided in our time of need. If anyone were to find themselves in a difficult position and in need of a great attorney, I would only hope they were as lucky as I was to find a lawyer like Alan Peyrouton.
October of 2011, lawyer Alan Peyrouton, worked my case that lasted until about June 2012. Before I even went into the office he took his personal time to have a detailed telephone conversation with me about the charges I faced. The first day that I actually went into his office, he made me feel comfortable and confident that he was the best choice to defend me in court. I faced five charges of serious magnitude. He not only eased my nerves but armed me with knowledge that could protect me in the future. He made me feel like he had my best interest at heart and he seemed passionate to do his best to try and help me. Through out the long drawn out case he continued to defend me in court vigorously. He always kept me abreast and was always on top of the court when they tried to take advantage of my rights. He seemed to always be one step ahead of the prosecutor. He always informed me of my choices and that helped me feel more in control. That’s essential especially when the court system will do everything to make you feel like you don’t have any. He went over and beyond to be efficient with my case. For example, Peyrouton took his personal time to watch multiple hours of surveillance video of me and typed up everything that was said in the tape. He didn’t have to but he did. By the end of case, four of my charges got dismissed and I got conditional discharge for the remaining charge. I would strongly recommend Lawyer Alan Peyrouton to defend anyone in court. At this point I wouldn’t hesitate to ever use his services in the future. He is not only my lawyer but I feel like he is my friend. If I could ever give anyone advice when it comes to having a lawyer, remember they are there to defend, but they do not make the decisions for you. And that is exactly what Alan Peyrouton does with compassion, professionalism, and vigor.
