We retained Peter's services for our mentally ill son who was facing three very serious felony charges this summer. Due to our son's incompetence when arrested, the court process was lengthy. Peter's compassion, patience and ability to communicate with our son, even in his gravely ill state of mind, is amazing. Our son trusted Peter from the beginning, and that just does not happen. Our son was looking at serving several years in prison. Peter was able to have two of the charges dropped and one reduced. Our son was released with probation. A restraining order had been placed at the arraignment to keep our son and his father apart. This was not wanted by either party and was creating a great emotional and financial strain on our family. My husband was so heartbroken not being able to be a support for his son. At sentencing Peter was able to have order modified to allow phone contact. My son and husband were so happy to finally be able to talk to each other after seven months. Two months later Peter was able to have the order changed to a Peaceful Contact Order. Thanks to Peter, my family is back together. Peter the lawyer is dedicated, hard working, conscientious, informative, aggressive and passionate for the law. Even though he has many clients, he always makes you feel like you are the only one. He is always focused and attentive, returns calls and texts right away. Peter is honest and compassionate, a genuine good man. There is great stigma that comes with mental illness. We have had many ugly experiences of being treated badly because of it over the years. Peter has a big heart and since the first moment we spoke has had only kindness toward us. This has been a long journey and we are so thankful to Peter for all he has done and continues to do for our family.
Attorney Peter Blair was an outstanding lawyer. He relieved the stress my case put on me as a defendant by taking full responsibility and ownership. He is very knowledgeable when it comes to law and made everything extremely easy to understand. Moreover, he kept me informed on everything that was happening inside the court room. Words can’t express the work he did for me and I avoided an enormous amount of fees the city would have placed on me. Hence, he gets the results you are looking for.
Highly recommend attorney, Peter Blair (criminal case). I hired Mr. Blair to be my father's representative by the amount of satisfaction and positive reviews from previous and current clients. After meeting up with him and interviewed Blair I was convinced he was the one defend and represent my father who was being charged with 20 lbs of cocaine and heroine. Facing up to 4 years and $700,000 bail. In addition to that, my father not being a US citizen only a permanent resident. Peter was always blunt regarding the possible charges and consequences , but always let me know he will try to get the best deal for him. Never mention the worst case scenario because he only concentrate in the best outcome for my father. Mr Blair always respond to my texts and was so flexible when it came to the monthly payments. I will definitely be grateful and appreciate Blair! My father's outcome was out with no bail, only 3 years of probation and did not get deported. I'm one satisfied Daughter! Thanks again Peter!!
I was very pleased with Peter Blair and everything he did to help out my case. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring. I would definitely recommend Peter Blair to anyone in need of a fantastic lawyer!! Thank you so much!!!!
Peter was very upfront and helpful with all aspects of my case. I was under a suspected DUI. Peter helped get me my license quicker. He also talked me through every scenario. He then guided me to keeping court costs down and minimizing the damage to my career. He was there for me every time i called. I hope this never happens again but I would definitely recommend him.
I don't have words to express the deep level of respect and admiration I have for Atty. Blair. .From the bottom of my heart, I really thank you for your service. .Atty. Blair is very professional, kind, respectful, compassionate and excellent of giving detailed information about your case..I really admired his honesty and very knowledgeable. ..I can't thank him enough for getting me out of my trouble..and on top of that, he is very understanding of your financial situation. He is very understanding all the way with my situation and I didn't even show up in the court. .I highly highly recommend Atty Peter Blair. .
I walked into Peter's office 6 hours after I posted bail from jail for a HORRENDOUS DUI and after googling, "best DUI Lawyers in San Diego." I blew a .31, hit quite a few parked cars, and did not have insurance. I was being charged with DUI and Hit and Run.
I was not well off financially, but Mr. Blair worked out a reasonable contract for me.
Peter was able to lower the charges to a standard DUI. The Hit and Run charges were dropped. I have 9 months of DUI classes because of the BAC, but I don't have any community service and $0 restitution to pay, despite having damaged multiple cars while driving without insurance.
He was also a voice of reason for me through the whole experience. This is the first time I've ever been in trouble with the law and Mr. Blair talked me through it and kept telling me not to worry. If I had any questions, he had the answers. Also, during the first meeting in his office, he told me to help myself any way possible. I proceeded to go to an Intensive Outpatient Program and kept him updated through my progress. I completed the program before my hearing and Peter used it to our full advantage.
Although he is a Seahawk fan and I am a 49er fan, I trusted him and he truly got it done. Hiring Peter was the best decision I've ever made.
On June 27th I was arrested and the charges were severe. I was facing three felony charges for one arrest. My bail was $400,000, so I was stuck in jail for a long time. My public attorney went against what I wanted and disregarded his duties all together. When Peter was hired he was able to get one charge dropped immediately. The other charge got dropped in a plea bargain with the DA, a man he knew and trusted. By the time of my sentence I was only facing one charge and probation to rid of the last one. I highly recommend Mr. Blair, he is honest, thorough and dedicated towards justice for both his client and the community.
Words cannot express our gratitude. Peter's compassion came shining through the first time we spoke. My son is mentally ill and was facing some very serious felony charges as a result of being off his medication. The public defender was not visiting him even after he was attacked by his cell mate. We needed a lawyer. After interviewing several lawyers I thought I would never find one right for my son who was extremely ill and paranoid at the time. All they wanted to talk about was their achievements and cut throat methods to win. All Peter wanted to talk about was my son. It was well over an hour into our conversation before he said anything about himself. We hired him and in less than an hour Peter was at the jail getting to know our son. Our son trusted Peter right away, which just does not happen. Our son had never been in trouble before. Peter helps all of us understand everything and he goes out of his way to be of comfort. Due to our son's incompetence originally, this has been a long six month process, which is nearing an end. The whole time Peter has always been available and quick to answer calls and texts. Peter has not just put his energy into the legal matters, but even more so into our son's well being. He has always understood our son's special needs and has a compassionate natural instinct that has enabled him to communicate effectively with him. Peter is a hard working, confident, dedicated man with a passion for his profession. During one of the hearings, I watched Peter stand firm repeatedly to have more time to help my son understand what was going on. He did so to the point of almost getting into trouble himself. It made me cry to see someone advocate for my son with such passion. We are almost to the end of this process, with sentencing remaining. Our son is doing well on his medication and the charges have been greatly reduced. Thanks to Peter this tragic incident has the potential to be a life saving experience for our son to learn from, instead of a life destroying one. We consider Peter to be one of our greatest blessings..
I was on my third DUI and was looking at a minimum of 120 days in jail. Peter Blair turned it into 8 days of picking up trash. I called numerous lawyers seeking the right representative, many wanted me to come in or just took my and info and said they would call me back. Peter Blair took the time to explain the process and options I had. He kept me well informed and returned my text and calls immediately. i had a lawyer for my second DUI and Mr Blair did ten times more then the other guy. The Second DUI lawyer basically got me the same as Peter Blair did for my third. Mr Peter Blair is professional and I would recommend him to anyone who needs a legal representative.
