  • Andrew Frank Garruto

    I have known Peter Chamas since the first week of law school back in 1987. He was one of the smartest in the class then, and he is one of the best trial lawyers in the state now - and has been for some time. Throughout his career he has successfully handled the most complex and significant personal injury cases, and has had so many multimillion dollar verdicts that I've lost track of how many he's accomplished. His impressive skills as a lawyer are just as remarkable as his integrity. I have the highest respect for him as a lawyer and as an individual, and I strongly endorse him as a lawyer.
