Peter and I have had some pretty tough cases over the years, but he has always been honest and trustworthy. He is a good advocate for his clients, while being a reasonable attorney who is going to work to settle his cases, if possible. Family law can be very difficult given the heighten emotional state of the parties, yet he always keeps his clients' best interests at the forefront. He has good trial skills, which I have seen him use on several occasions when we were unable to resolve family law issues. I endorse this lawyer.
