I was referred to Mr. Schulte by a friend of mine and I couldn’t be happier that I was. Having never had to hire an attorney to face a criminal matter before, I was beyond terrified and nervous. However, after my initial meeting with Mr. Schulte, I realized I’d be in good hands and felt relieved. He is very considerate, knowledgeable and an Aggie and so I felt much more at ease knowing he would be handling my case. He kept me very informed on the status of my case every step of the way. He personally showed up for every court setting, no matter what it was for. He followed up with an email or phone call the same day as well, making sure I didn’t have any questions, and that I knew when my next court setting was. Mr. Schulte is very well respected in the Dallas area. He knows just about everyone in the courthouse. His background sets him apart from other attorneys, he definitely knows his stuff! I was very happy with the outcome of my case and I owe it to him. I highly recommend Mr. Schulte, you won’t be disappointed! Thanks again Pete!

I have never written a review for anything, but I am so thankful for Mr. Schulte that I felt it was important to share. Also, when searching for an attorney, I often read reviews on this site and I wanted to share a few words of hope for similar individuals facing these same heartaches & challenges right now. I was somewhat skeptical of review sites because I didn't know if someone in the law office was actually writing them. I can tell you 100%, God as my witness, I am a client and these are my true feelings. I had lost hope and because I finally found someone like him, I just want to tell my experience for those needing a teammate.
First and foremost, above all else, Peter is just so compassionate, kind and understanding. You can have a beast on the football field who wins games, but those athletes whom impact others through their integrity and character resonates even deeper. That is Peter.
When we met with Peter for a complex family custody battle, we had been to countless other attorneys across Texas. I knew of him from watching the trial of a murder case his client was acccused of and found not guilty. I was intrigued how even in a serious trial, he was showed grace and kindness through his delivery. He explained hard details in a way everyone could understand. Not only that, you could tell that the judge & attorneys on the other side really liked him. However, you never know if it's just a public show with lawyers, so we weren't sure what to expect when meeting him for our case.
When we met with him, I can tell you -- not only was he JUST like that man in the courtroom - but he was even GREATER and kinder in person! We have felt hurt so many times by the system and egos, that we were skeptics, but he forever changed our view!!! He sat us down and immediately knew of a strategy no other attorney had presented. He also pulled out the law book on the spot and pointed to the exact reason we had been given the wrong advice before. Not only that, but he seemed genuinely engaged in our lives and our case and we finally felt as though we had a teammate in the matter, one who was not going to leave our side. He is also a former law enforcement officer, so he understands the law from both sides and sees the picture as a whole from every angle. Our case involved different counties, so many people gave us advice to stick with attorneys in that specific area. After frustration and some feelings of helpliness with these other consultations, we went to him as a last resort and it changed our entire outlook on everything. Even though he's located in a different area than the specific county we reside, he traveled to our county and it was not a problem. He also responds VERY quickly and it doesn't take days to get ahold of him. He also does exactly what he says and showed up to the courthouse the VERY next day, just as he promised.
I guess the final indication of his character was when it came to fees. I was certain someone like him would charge ridiculously high fees that we would spend our lives paying for, but that was not the case. His fees were less than other attorneys who not only gave us wrong advice, but made us feel as though we were working for them.
I feel that all of us are called to a bigger purpose than our careers. Peter is an attorney by trade, but his greatest purpose is to advocate and fight for people. If you are reading this and have lost all hope, just hang in there and trust that there ARE people out there who will believe in you and your situation. This man is very, very special and my family just adores him. We don't have a decision just yet as the case is in the system, however, I am confident that no matter what happens, we had the best person to represent us. Thanks for letting me share and I pray for your journey, too!

Mr. Schulte is result driven, prepared & knowledgeable. I wouldn’t want to be his opponent! I am thrilled I had Mr. Schulte on my team and would highly recommend him.

I had a Rockwall case and was under the impression that my best bet was to go with an Attorney that practiced only in the Rockwall area because they would know the court system, judges/prosecutors well. After meeting and speaking with almost all of Rockwall's attorneys and then meeting with Pete in Dallas, I decided to skip going with a "Rockwall specific" attorney and went with Pete instead, which I'm so glad I did! Pete distinguished himself from the rest of the bunch out there from the very start. My initial consultation with Pete was over the phone and he spent a good amount of time with me discussing my case. He even did a second consultation with me but this time we met in person in his office, and again, he spent a great amount of time with me. I knew very little about the legal system and had a long list of questions but Pete was very patient and he took the time to answer every single one of my questions twice. He was very courteous, attentive and fully engaged with all the details of my case. He also asked me all the right questions and even did some research on my case during our consultation just to get to the core of things in an instant.
Pete Schulte is a tremendously talented attorney with a deep knowledge in the legal system. He handled my case very professionally and was honest with me and very pleasant to work with throughout the entire process. No matter how complicated the issues, he was always reliable and always gave honest feedback. He was very responsive to me (no matter what time of the day) with regard to any of my urgent (and not so urgent) matters. He kept me informed on any developments as soon as they occurred. He always made me feel comfortable and secure about him handling my case. He made this fiasco I had to deal less stressful...I can only imagine how much of a living nightmare it would be to have your (paid) attorney add on the headache and stress - Pete was not that at all! A family member of mine was also charged in connection with my charge, so we had to get separate attorneys. His attorney did nothing for him at all and because of all the work my attorney, Pete, put into my case, it just so happened to help my family member’s case out as well. Without Pete’s help, I would have not gotten my (our) case resolved and NO-BILLED as quickly as it did. I am beyond pleased with Mr. Schulte's work and what he has done for us. We cannot thank him enough. If you are looking for a truly professional lawyer who will work and get things done on your behalf, also treating you honestly and with utmost respect, Pete Schulte is your guy. I highly recommend Pete and I am sure he will do an excellent job for you! THANK YOU Pete!!!

Pete is a well known, respected attorney in Collin County, and it's quite obvious. He handled my case very quickly and with a better outcome than I ever imagined. I can not say thak you enough to Mr. Schulte. I spoke with many attorneys and so glad I went with Mr. Schulte. One thing that really impressed me is he is the only one that showed up for every hearing/court dates. This was a big thing to me since other attorneys will send someone else for certain things. I don't know a whole lot about the legal system, however he kept me in the loop and made me feel better about the whole situation.

Mr. Schulte is a very capable, outstanding lawyer. He is FANTASTIC in the courtroom. I agree with the other clients that have posted reviews about how well regarded he is... Everyone seems to know him at the courthouse. I was very impressed with his great working relationship with the Judges and lawyers on the other side. He knows the law and understands when to be aggressive to fight for his clients. I would highly recommend him! He handled a criminal case and a related family law case at the same time. He did a GREAT job.

It is obvious Mr. Schulte is well regarded in Dallas area courtrooms. I was very impressed that almost everyone Mr. Schulte walked by in the Dallas county courthouse knew him by name.
In addition, Mr. Schulte's experience as a former police officer, prosecutor, and defense attorney truly did set him way above the competition.
I received a letter after each court setting, and a returned phone call/e-mail within one business day. It was not uncommon for Mr. Schulte to respond to my inquiries late at night and on weekends.
I was found not guilty in my case after a jury trial. I was so impressed that several jurors asked for Mr. Schulte's business card after the trial!
Bottom line... Mr. Schulte is worth every dime you will pay him. You won't be disappointed.

Mr. Schulte was referred to me from a friend. Mr. Schulte was very hands on and focused on the details of my case. He kept me very informed on the status of my case through written letters and phone calls. He was very good about returning phone calls within a business day. In the end, I was very happy with the outsome of the criminal matter he assisted me with.
I would recommend Mr. Schulte to anyone needing an agressive, competent and well respected lawyer without any hesitation.
