Peter Mesich took a very personal interest in my DUI case. When I first met with him he was very diligent in gathering the facts about my case. He was a hard-working man who skillfully dealt with the DA and judge. Mr. Mesich persuaded the court to reduce my DUI charge to a minor driving infraction (using a cell phone while stopped at an intersection). He used an Ambien defense (I was sleep driving after taking an Ambien sleeping pill that had not worn off completely). He gathered medical information to assist with my case. He also provided the court with information about my good character (volunteer charity work, etc.). I highly recommend Mr. Mesich for your legal defense.

Peter Mesich was a pleasure to work with. I hired peter through a friend referral and at first was advised not to get a lawyer. I am very glad I did, he was very knowledgable, respectful, understanding and most important easy to contact. When I need question answered he was always available and if he had to call back it was within the hour. Peter took the time to invest in me and my case and assured me he would do whatever he could. My DUI case was a tough one and due to the circumstances and facts that were present it was a hard case to fight! Even with that, Peter made sure no stone went unturned and even got my sentencing lowered due to the things he recommended me to do and his hard work. Throughout the process Peter was informative and realistic and always gave me options of how I wanted to handle the case but did advise what was in my best interest. God forbid I get into this situation again or have someone I know go through it but IF it occurs Peter Meisch will be my go to guy!
Ooo almost forgot ... Peter Mesich was very affordable for the services he provides!

His attention to my case, and his relentless research got me the help I needed. I have nothing but respect for Peter, and I appreciate his help. I would highly recommend him as an Attorney.

When I found myself in some serious possible trouble, Peter was referred to me by a friend. Peter was relief beyond words. A large reason you want a guy like Peter on your side is that you honestly know he is going for every angle of your defense. Another reason is that Peter is intelligent, attentive, present, and most of all, gives you the sense that he is on top of things. I could sleep easier with the knowledge that, whatever the outcome, I had a pitbull of a lawyer on my side! He came through for me, and he will come through for you. He will aggressively pursue your defense and he greatly helped me in more ways than I thought possible. When looking at the possible worst case scenarios, just having Peter's council can take the burden off of your shoulders, something priceless that I doubt the average DUI lawyer will provide. I give him my highest recommendation.

We feel very fortunate to have had Peter Mesich as our attorney. He got the best possible outcome we had hoped for. He also took care of post plea details and guided us thoughtfully through the process. His communication was outstanding. He returned calls and emails promptly. The DUI is an emotional and physical stress. As our attorney he was supportive and understanding. He took time to truly listen to the fears and frustrations, always combining his legal expertise and caring manner to reassure us.

Peter Mesich was very helpful to my case. Although there were times where the odds were seeming against me, Mr. Mesich remained focus and fought hard to expose the truth of the matter. I am definitely thankful to have had Mr. Mesich as my Defense attorney.

I was referred to Peter through a friend when I was arrested for suspicion of DUI. I'm 40 years old and, aside from speeding tickets, have never had a problem with the law, so the event was understandably upsetting. Peter was a safe harbor in that storm. He was compassionate and professional, easing my fears while not promising things that he could not deliver. He was thorough with regards to the details of my case, and was available when I needed to talk with him about it even if I just needed to be talked down from nightmarish imaginings. I was very pleased with the entire process, including the conclusion. In my case, the DUI was dropped to a Wet/Reckless due to the circumstances of my arrest and my low BAC. From the beginning he believed that that was the outcome he could achieve, and while offering that there were possibilities for some better resolutions, he was very clear that that was probably what was going to happen due to the fact that I was pulled over for an issue with my car, not because of my driving, and when they tested my BAC it was very close, but still over, the legal limit. He also was forthright in preparing me for the possibility, however slim, that a full DUI might still be a possibility, and provided me with all the information I might need should that come to pass.
Further, when there were some unforeseen complications after the original case due to my schedule and not being able to make it to some of the court prescribed "activities" by the dates set down, he once again took up my cause with the same zeal, and was, again, calming and informative. This is no "fast food" client/lawyer relationship. When I got arrested, I spoke with many of my friends who had been through the process to determine what I should do, many had not obtained legal assistance, and the ones that had had been underwhelmed by their representation to the point that they regretted not having simply gone before the court with the Public Defender, and certainly didn't consider their lawyers to be people they could call on no matter what might occur in the future. That was not my experience. Peter has been there for me with a consistently high level of professionalism, availability, and knowledge even beyond the conclusion of the original case.
In terms of payment, his rate was very reasonable and he took into account my particular financial situation and was flexible with regards to a payment plan that would be satisfactory for both of us.
Of the experience I would say that not only was working with Peter "painless", but in fact he relieved much of the mental and emotional pain that came during this entire process. I would absolutely recommend Peter Mesich to anyone finding themselves with a possible DUI hanging over them, and, in fact, already have referred friends to him with almost the exact wording of this review as my recommendation!

Peter was amazing. Last summer I made a horrible decision to drive after drinking too much and was facing DUI charges that could have ended my career. A friend recommended Peter. He was kind, compassionate, non judgemental, very easy to talk to, and easy to get a hold of. He’s also driven and knows the system; He did a lot of research, was knowledgeable about the how the system works and was able to negotiate my case down to a reckless driving charge and an infraction. He worked a miracle, saved my career, and was awesome to work with! A potentially devistating life altering decision has become a lesson learned and I'm so thankful.

I am SOOOO thankful I found Peter to represent me (and basically my family) in my case. I STRONGLY RECCOMMEND Peter Mesich to anyone needing a Defense Attorney and I recommend him every chance I get!! I actually spoke to Peter the first time I called, and every time after that. He was honest, straightforward, took time to listen and understand my case initially, and gave me an honest assessment. I trusted him right away. I'm sure that without Peter, my case would have turned out drastically different, and for the worst. He has a complete knowledge of the law and how it applies in each unique case, he knows the theory and practice of the law from both the Prosecution and the Defense side, and was totally committed to me and my family!! Before you hire anyone else, I strongly urge you to call Peter and just talk to him first!!! You wont regret it... and you have a lot to lose!!!

Mr. Mesich through his knowledge and expertise, handle my case driven by his humanitarian characteristics as well as optimum professionalism, guiding me through every step of the process, lowering a DUI with a prior into a wet reckless DUI.
During this time I have found Mr. Mesich to be a kind and trustworthy person. I have trusted him with all the details of my case, Mr. Mesich is an excellent lawyer and will deliver a performance exceeding expectations. I feel that you would be lucky to have him take your case in your legal situations.
