  • Alexander Ali Forrest

    Although I am endorsing Peter for his substantive knowledge of probate law, he is first and foremost a trial lawyer, and I think he could try just about any case. He has a natural and remarkable way of connecting with juries during voir dire, and his preparation for trial leaves no detail to chance. Anyone would be more than privileged to have a lawyer like Peter on their side.
