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.
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.
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.
