I contacted the law office of William Pelger due to a very distressing DUI. Attorney Pelger was immediately available to help with my case. Bill treated me with great respect, explained all the steps to me in simple terms and put me at ease while demonstrating he is an extremely competent and experienced lawyer. Throughout the entire criminal court experience, Bill Pelger was always highly professional, reliable and sympathetic. I am very grateful for his expert knowledge and compassionate approach.
I have never used Avvo before, nor have I ever heard of the site, but I was disappointed in the responses i received for my question from other lawyers... They all said basically the same thing, which was to get an attorney; well obviously if I am asking my question on this site my attorney either could not answer my question, or I don't want to pay for one and just want a simple yes or no answer. Although Mr. Pelgers' answer did not necessarily answer with a 'yes' or 'no' answer, he gave me an honest answer that basically proved he did what other lawyers did not do, which was read the question that I wanted answered then answered it to the best of his ability while speaking in simple (non-lawyer) terms so that I was able to understand. He stood out to be a 'down to earth' lawyer that does not recite from his textbooks. I am very impressed, and wish that more lawyers would treat people like me as if I were a paying client.
Attorney Pelger has been helping me with the administration and closing of my father's estate. It is noteworthy to mention that this estate had many hiccups and was not a cut and dry case. His knowledge and guidance, as well as his caring manner, has been invaluable to me during an extremely stressful period in my life. From start to finish, Bill has been attentive, responsive and highly informative; there is no way I would have made it through this process without him. If you are looking for a lawyer in the Pittsburgh area with impeccable knowledge in the area of estate planning and probate, you could do no better than to go with the Law Office of William Pelger.
