    Couldn't be happier

    Peter Schmerl was a godsend to me. He was very pleasant to work with, extremely knowledgeable and professional. He took time to explain everything so that it was easily understood, took care of the paperwork and just handled everything for me, which was a huge relief. He is clearly a very caring and compassionate person and very good at what he does. I couldn't have asked for a better attorney and experience and will wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone I know who might be in need of his services.

    This attorney charged me for telling me how much his services would cost

    This attorney listened to my complaint, and said the first thing we would have to do is settle on his cost's, he emailed me a long list of what all costs would be incurred and a request for $5000 up front. Then 3 weeks later sent me a bill for sending me that letter about how much it would cost.

    Peter G Schmerl’s response: “I don't recognize this person and the facts as described don't sound like my practice. Only in rare cases such as complex estate litigation matters do I request an advance and I would not intentionally send a bill to someone who has not first signed the fee agreement. Perhaps he has me confused with another attorney.”

    A smiling "snowbird"

    I needed reliable information about how Arizona law might deal with Ontario power-of-attorney arrangements and US real estate transfers in/outside of a will for a Canadian "snow birding" in Arizona. I cold-emailed Peter after coming across his profile on the web. His assistant responded right away and set up a phone meeting. In that brief call Peter listened attentively, confirmed and added to my understanding, and offered creative solutions to challenges. With that start, I will confidently retain him to do the work needed.

    Not helpful

    Peter is useless. He never answer phone calls. He never answer at e-mails. He lier. He promised things which he will never able do. It is not possible to communicate with him. He does not have any knowledge in CPS. He did my case worse. Stay away from him.

    Need help? Peter Schmerl exemplifies excellence!

    This was my first and only positive experience with a lawyer. Mr. Schmerl made what was an emotionally-charged and potentially frightening experience into something that could be dealt with in a dignified way. Taking someone to court over a parent's will was the last thing that I ever expected to do in my life, but Mr. Schmerl made this a simple, step-by-step procedure. From our first meeting, he was respectful not only of me as a client but also of my financial situation as a person. The fact that his efforts had a positive financial result is icing on the cake! I would recommend Mr. Schmerl to anyone without reservation for anything to do with wills and estates.
