Attorney Peter Jabaly is an exceptional lawyer. I had a critical issue that needed some legal overview - with a short time frame. Mr. Jabaly was able to provided in-depth overview of the matter in a timely manner. Not only was he informative but he clearly put my interest first in mind while doing his due diligence regarding the matter. I highly suggest if you need an attorney that will look out for your best interest while being informative and timely - Peter Jabaly is your attorney. I look forward to Peter Jabaly representing my interest and future business endeavors.

Peter did a great job walking me through the necessary steps to get my business ready for the next step. After explaining each step and quoting me a very fair price, he determined that we could short cut the process and reduce his fee. How many professional service people have you ever encountered willing to lower a quoted price in favor of their client?
This honesty, combined with a great work ethic, and a willingness to put the client first made my experience with Jabaly law outstanding, and ensured that my first call for legal council will always be to Peter.

Peter was truly outstanding in all aspects of his service. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He was very persistent yet understanding and respectful of my time constraints. I felt very confident with his representation. He knows how to approach individuals according to the situation. I believe I could not have had a better Attorney representing me in a very difficult and sensitive situation. His communications skills were excellent and very clear in what he was asking for. Really enjoyed working with Peter and would gladly go to him for any future needs.

I have worked with Mr. Jabaly on multiple occasions. As a founding partner of a consultancy, and CEO of an international export corporation, I have been highly impressed with the range of issues Mr. Jabaly has been able to successfully navigate for me. Our attorney-client relationship began when I had a need to establish a multi-state corporation involved in international commerce. Mr. Jabaly has proven to be very trustworthy, disclosing when he lacked expertise regarding a particular legal issue, but always finding the answer in a time-efficient manner. I typically receive responses to questions within 1-2 hours. When awaiting contracts or important documents, Mr. Jabaly has always met his deadline, and more often than not, provided documents to me ahead of deadlines. My business partners have been equally impressed with his work. It's hard to find a criticism with the way Mr. Jabaly handles us as clients as he never disappoints.

Prior to speaking with Peter I had spent over 6 months attempting to settle and recuperate a significant debt. The concessions I made trying to resolve this dispute on my own had brought me to a point where it was hardly worth continuing to pursue. From a psychological perspective the debt had become less important - I would say I was at a point of trying to recuperate what were sunk costs of time and energy.
After our first consultation Peter offered to approach the other party with a settlement offer. This was an economical approach I hadn’t considered. I still love this idea from a tactical perspective as it quickly shows how persistent the other party intends to be. While I was surprised they still rejected the settlement, I at least knew that if they wouldn’t respond to Peter they weren’t going to respond to me. Peter outlined my options going forward with accurate expectations and we ended up taking the case to court.
From prior experience I had the misperception that in most circumstances hiring an attorney often doesn’t end up being the most economical approach. However, even after expenses I ended up with three times what I was originally offering to settle for. This sum was also actually more than I was originally owed. In short, the other party didn’t fulfill responsibilities they were accountable for by law. As those responsibilities weren’t detailed contractually, I wasn’t even aware they existed.
If this case hadn't turned out as favorable as it did I would still recommend Peter. The time, energy, and psychological costs of not having expert legal counsel will often escalate faster than we anticipate. My recommendation is to pay attention and know when you need additional leverage (if you're reading this you're probably already there)... Your time and energy is to valuable throw away. Setup a consultation, understand your disagreement, and start working toward a real resolution as soon as possible.

Mr. Jabaly was my attorney for a personal injury case. I was involved in a car accident in February 2011. I sustained severe injury to my back and foot, which required surgery. The insurance company tried to settle with me for an amount that wouldn't even cover my medical bills. Mr. Jabaly advised me throughout the long ordeal (almost 2 years) and he ended up settling with the insurance company, on my behalf, for a substantial sum. Mr. Jabaly was diligent in negotiating with the defendant and informing me of what they had said. If I had settled on my own, I would still have medical bills that needed to be paid. Mr. Jabaly was knowledgeable about the area of law, which made it easy to put this in his hands. I would recommend him to anyone.
