  • Jeffrey Michael Schreiber

    I am a Family Law practitioner in Summerville, South Carolina, just outside of Charleston. One of my clients had a custodial interference emergency happening in New York City. I plucked Peter's name off of Avvo and called him out of the blue on a Friday afternoon. He picked up right away, and he was tremendously helpful. If this gentleman treats his clients as well as he treats an attorney from 800 miles away that he's never met before, the people of New York need to look no further for phenomenal counsel.
