Spirited, intelligent, articulate and frank. After interviewing no fewer than ten attorneys to take my felony case I happened upon this outstanding gentleman who made me feel 100% confident that he was the right person for my case. This was proven right after an arduous 9 months of court when our case was dismissed at the PRELIM!
The thing that immediately jumped out at me was his honesty. There was no fake bravado or false promises from this person. After getting to know each other for a couple of weeks he was able to embody my desires and my passion into the case to a degree where I was truly represented. Everything about him and his team is professional and forthright. His team is extremely accommodating and will help you with whatever you need, whenever you need it! (thank you, by the way!)
It boils down to: If you want an attorney that just says the right things and coddles to your feelings then go with the other person. If you want someone who genuinely believes in his craft and your moral values then go with Peter Liss.

After never needing the services of an attorney before, I suddenly required those services following an automobile accident and arrest. I hired Peter Liss after reading his reviews and cannot begin to express how happy I was with the service he provided, from our initial meeting to the very happy conclusion of my case Peter was Friendly, compassionate, funny, and thorough and above all a “Bull Dog” in the court room. I would highly recommend Peter Liss to anyone in need of a Defense attorney

Attorney Liss and his assistant were very helpful and made going to court to get a restraining order easy. Communication was limited but I found that it wasn't really needed because he handled everything so well. It was a very difficult situation and Attorney Liss walked me through every step - just easing my stress level made a big difference!

Peter Liss is an excellent criminal defense attorney and I would recommend him highly to anyone needing help in the Vista court system. I was charged with a domestic violence charge in Vista by a former girlfriend after I called the police asking for their help to remove her from my home. Although there was no evidence of violence, she claimed that I had threatened her so the police charged me. In such cases it becomes a "he said/she said" situation and the police are obligated to charge someone when called. In most cases they side with the woman for safety and caution if the facts are unclear. They did so in this case even though I had called them for help.
My arrest and pending prosecution was an extremely traumatic event for me. I was worried about my employment, reputation, financial losses, and physical safety. When I met Peter and he heard my story he immediately made me feel better by carefully explaining the legal process and possible outcomes and costs. He also never promised an outcome, but told me the probability that my case would be dismissed due to the circumstances and why things happened the way they did. He took the time to tell me who would be involved in the decisions, what would happen next, and what he would do on my behalf. He went out of his way to return every phone call himself, make every appearance himself, and charge me the lowest possible fees. I shopped around and some firms were charging more than double. Peter keeps a very lean staff, but don't let this fool you. He is one of the most professional lawyers I have ever met and I have dealt with many in my business life before. He just believes in giving personal attention and keeping costs down. He also wants to know the people handling the case in the courthouse from the DA and their staff to the Judges and clerks. He has spent his whole career in Vista and north county San Diego. If you need a kind, compassionate, competent, and professional attorney; you should call Peter Liss. I was very happy I did.
As a final note....I was so happy with Peter's service after my charges were dismissed, that I offered to pay him the higher fees charged by a competing large firm. He refused to accept the higher payment. He is an honor to his profession in my opinion.

Peter Liss is not only a talented criminal attorney but also a great human being. He represented me for a misdemeanor charge. In 25 years of my living in US, I had no idea what that means. I and my wife were so scared that we had several sleepless nights. It was Peter who not only handled our case, but also comforted us so that we could get some sleep during this 3 months ordeal. He knows the criminal justice system so well, we followed his advice (taking anger management course, writing a letter of apology to the judge, and doing community voluntary work) and at the end, we were happy to get out with just probation. Thank you Peter.
He is accessible by phone any time of the day and late in the evenings. He was always available for a 1 on 1 meetings at our convenience. Simply put it, trust him, follow his advice and sleep well, and he will take care you. As for the fees, he charges fixed rate/case and we felt it was very reasonable.

I managed to get myself in a heap of trouble with two back to back DUI's (bad ones). Peter was terrific and managed to work with the prosecutors and judge and got me a really fantastic result. He went far and above my expectations and talking to people in my DUI class made me realize he did more far more for me than other participants lawyers. While I am certain I will not need his services again I would strongly recommend anyone whose got themselves in a bad situation.

Mr. Liss was extremely diligent in handling our son's case. He kept us informed of progress and possible outcomes. His representation of our son in court resulted in a better than expected outcome. His fee is reasonable and he will return calls promptly and after normal working hours. We recommend him highly to anyone needing his area of expertise.

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!
