  • Peter John Marek

    As a former Deputy District Attorney he has a huge advantage over most criminal defense attorneys. "They know that he knows what they know". His knowledge of both criminal law and procedure is excellent and evident in his pro bono contributions. Client reviews are stellar. READ THEM! Endorsements by his peers are outstanding. If you want the right result do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation.
