    • I do not recommend Peter Larkin.
    • I hired Peter more than 3 years ago.
    • Peter handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Peter demanded an enormous retainer, went through it quickly, and then demanded more money before the case even went to the preliminary hearing. Peter counseled us to seek costly experts, all of which ended up hurting our case. Once plea bargain came around, Peter misrepresented the terms and pressured us into signing a deal simply because he thought he could not get more money out of us. This man is the reason there are so many slimy lawyer jokes. If the statute hadn't run, I would sue him.

  2. Avoid at all costs

    Demanded a huge retainer for the amount work done and quickly burned through it once he determined that I was well off (then demanded more). Never kept me informed and had a nebulous accounting of the amount of work he had done. Claimed he had experience in the area of work, when he was clearly out of his element. He will do the bare minimum and run up his bill until he finds out that you can no longer pay. Overall, he is the type of man who gives lawyers a bad name.
