    When I was a prosecutor I tried cases against Pete. He is awesome and his reputation allowes him to get deals other lawyers didn't. One of the best lawyers I have ever seen in action.

    I endorse this lawyer. Pete is a pillar in the our local legal community. When I began practicing over 12 years ago, a wonderful judge told me that Pete Cahoon is one of the top lawyers in our community, he is always very professional and a gentle man. I completely agree!
