  • Peter John Marek

    19 years of practicing law is what we refer to as experienced. As a defense attorney he has a huge advantage over others having been a Deputy District attorney for several years. "They know that he knows what they know". His client review is stellar. Knowledge of both the law and procedure is excellent and evident in his pro bono contributions here. Endorsements from his peers are also outstanding. Do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation with him.
