Peter handled my case of DV. My wife called the police in heat of moment and we regretted that decision soon after the police came.
As per the law, Police filed a DV case against me. We approached Peter and explained him the whole situation.
Peter worked diligently with DA, explained her the situation and ultimately got my case dismissed even before going to the court.
During the process, he was very responsive to us. He calmed our nerves in midst of all the tension.
Many thanks to Peter and his team. Excellent lawyer to work with.
I am forever grateful to have Attorney Peter Liss represent me on my case. I was very close to having a permanent record against me that could have negatively impacted and very likely ended my professional career. From the moment that I met Peter, I felt very confident that my case was in good hands. He worked diligently and expertly from day one and the case against me was rejected by the D.A. within a few days! I never had to go to court. He went above and beyond to help me and my case as this was a very emotional time in my life. I will be forever grateful for all that he's done. Peter and his secretary Erika were there for me from beginning until the end. Patiently addressing all my questions and concerns. They are an awesome team and I would highly recommend Peter to anyone who needs an expert attorney who is very skilled, intelligent, supportive, caring, and thoroughly knows the justice system to handle your case. I could not have expected a better outcome!
Mr. Liss helped us when our daughter was going through a difficult time. He answered calls promptly and navigated the course so that NO CHARGES were filed. He does not over charge for services and he doesn't make promises. He just proceeds methodically, proactively and swiftly to get the best possible result. He assisted us when we were very lost and didn't know the next steps to take. We are eternally grateful and consider him the best lawyer California!!!
Words cannot express our gratitude towards Attorney Peter Liss. We came to him in turmoil and fear. However with his expert knowledge in Criminal Law, we knew he would not lead us astray. He really went beyond what he needed to do to protect our rights and voice our opinions. However besides all the technicalities of law and court, he is just a very kind hearted person. He did not promise us things that were impossible. He was very straight forwards with us and wanted the best for us. On top of that, he is VERY familiar with everyone at the Vista court. He replied back calls instantly and always kept us informed, even if it was news that was hard to take at first. He prepared us for the worst and let us know that we would be taken care of. What was different about Peter was that I felt he was not the stereotype "lawyer". He was not the lawyer who would lie to you about your case and lead you astray. He is also not a lawyer who would take advantage of you. HIs prices were very reasonable, maybe a little too reasonable given his experience, expertise, and degree from Berkeley. Throughout the process, he acted like a very caring friend, letting us know what was to come. What you don't see anymore these days is a genuine lawyer who actually cares about his clients. At the end of the day, if you don't go to Attorney Peter, be ready to lose. We are all once again very appreciative of what he has done for the family and would recommend him 100%. THANK YOU ATTORNEY PETER AND YOUR TEAM!!!!
I was arrested and charged with a Felony DUI with injury and needed a top notch lawyer to help defend me. After I did my research and read many reviews on several attorney's, I chose Mr. Peter Michael Liss and I am ever so glad I did!
Without going into details, I was faced with a Felony DUI with injury and Great Bodily Harm which could have been strike 1 and up to 3 years in jail just on that one charge alone.
I was open and honest with Mr. Liss right from the start and you need to be, so he knew exactly what he needed to do to defend me in court.
Mr. Liss told me right from the very first time we talked, that I was facing very serious charges and what I was looking at as far as punishments and penalties. He did not sugar coat anything and it was pretty scary for me to say the least.
I have already been sentenced and because Mr. Liss did his research on my case and fought very hard for me, he was able to articulate to the court that I was a decent person who made a mistake and being labeled as a felon did not fit me and the person who I really am. I am truly remorseful and Mr. Liss has seen that in me.
My Felony charge with injury was reduced to a Misdemeanor with injury and adding the Great Bodily Harm charge was NOT added either.
Do yourself justice and let Mr. Liss defend you and like me, you probably will be writing one of these good reviews and thanking him for being in your corner and giving you the best defense that you deserve!
I would like to say Thank you Peter once again and thank you for not only believing in me, but for the great defense and protecting me and my name. I will always be so very grateful to you!
I have known and worked with Peter for over 20 years. He is smart, hard working and dedicated to getting the best results for his clients. He is a top attorney and I highly recommend him.
PETER WAS SO HELPFUL AND WON OUR CASE! my family absolutely loved him no matter what happened he will fight for you and do whatever he can. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone! I think he is the best and was very easy to talk to and is extremely knowledgable. I was so impressed how well he handled my case along with his relationships with the DA,judge, and everyone else. HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING.
Mr.Peter Liss has done excellent job to dismiss my case which I was absolutely innocent. I really appreciate his time and expertise in my case. He has kept excellent communication with me through e-mail and update me through the process .
Thank you so much for all your effort .
If you need an attorney, you owe it to yourself to research and interview available attorneys within the jurisdiction of the court. I did just that and was fortunate enough to find Peter Liss.
I reached out to Mr. Liss over a weekend and was surprised to receive a call back rather quickly. I explained our situation and he answered a number of questions for me. I scheduled a meeting him for the following week and sat down for a free consultation. Mr. Liss reviewed my notes on the case then discussed the options and possible outcomes. He did not make any promises, which I very much appreciated. His thorough description of the court process and knowledge of the DA and Judges within Vista Court system helped to make the biggest decision of our daughters life a very easy and comfortable one. It was clear that Mr. Liss was the right choice.
To be clear, Mr. Liss was not the first or only attorney that I met with. I did my research and met with a few local attorneys to help decide who would handle my daughters case. Her future career was at stake and I wanted to look each attorney in the eye and make sure they wouldn't handle this as 'just another case'. Peter Liss stood head and shoulders above the rest.
The outcome of the case turned out much better than expected. My daughter can now put this mistake behind her and move on with her life and career. I would, without a doubt, recommend Peter Liss to friends, family and community members if they find themselves needing a qualified attorney. Many thanks to Mr. Liss and his wonderful team!
We retained Peter to deal with a family member's serious DUI charges. From our first meeting through the entire pre-trial process, Peter was professional, completely candid and totally engaged in working for our best interests. He personally represented us at each court date/hearing and worked diligently to place our interests and concerns before the District Attorney and the Court. The final result was the dismissal of two serious felony charges and the reduction of all charges to a single misdemeanor DUI. I highly recommend Peter.
