I can't say enough good things about Mr. Peter Tilem and the rest of his firm. I arrived at my appointment shaken and upset - which is how it feels when a law abiding citizen suddenly finds himself on the wrong side of the law. I instantly felt like a patient in the hands of a good Doctor. Peter listened carefully to every word I said, answered every question and thoroughly examined the facts. I was extremely impressed by his knowledge and timely responses to the various obstacles that surfaced throughout my case. In the midst of a difficult process - it is so comforting to know that there is a defense attorney like Mr. Tilem ready to give all of his boundless energy and commitment to a case. He is a skilled professional who is also extremely personable. I highly recommend him and am extremely grateful to him for everything he has done for me.
Peter was not only a wonderful, knowledgeable attorney, he was compassionate and caring as well. He truly gave my case full attention and kept in touch with me all along the way.
Years ago Mr. Tilem represented me when I purchased my apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn. He was professional, knowledgeable and most accessable. Wherever I picked up the phone to ask "a first time home buyer" question, he personally answered my question in a simple straight foward manner.
Two years later when I received a speeding ticket in White Plains, NY his current office successfully fought the ticket and obtained a satisfactory disposition of the matter.
I would highly reccommend Mr. Tilem as an attorney
I came to Tilem & Campbell with a pressing, thorny legal issue. Not only did Peter Tilem make room in his busy schedule for me that very day, he consulted with his partner on my issue.
Without resorting to trickery or arcane loopholes, they used their obviously vast knowledge of the law to expose a critical flaw in the proceedings against me that not only aided me, but resulted in my being able to walk away from the entire proceedings without further thought.
There were several factors beyond this that made Peter Tilem and his firm stand out, in my opinion, in the legal community:
â€¢ They were speedy and informative communicators: not only were they quick to respond to my calls, they were able to explain "legalese" in layman's terms in a way that was respectful and clear.
â€¢ Despite the size and stature of their firm (they have been called frequently as media experts), they are willing to take on small, less lucrative clients in the name of justice, e.g., their noted work with battered women and children.)
â€¢ Peter Tilem follows UP with clients - even when the situation is resolved, Mr. Tilem takes great care to keep in contact with clients to reassure them and to let them know he will be there should any repercussions arise.
I have had to deal with several attorneys in my life; I consider Peter Tilem to be among the finest.
Mister Tilem performed excellent,
