    Peter and I have worked together over the years on many matters. We have been adversaries in litigation matters where Peter has shown his skills as a trial lawyer. Peter and I are also trained mediators and collaborative attorneys. Peter is dedicated to helping his clients resolve cases amicably and to educating the pubic about the benefits of alternative dispute resolution. Peter is a stand-out guy and a terrific attorney.
