  • Kenneth Roy Linthicum

    Peter has been practicing law for several years and has practiced in virtually every area of law. He uses his diverse background to find creative solutions to legal problems and has a unique understanding of practical legal procedure. He goes out of his way to minimize his clients fees by using his experience to decide what tasks are necessary and what tasks are not necessary. Even though his hourly rates are in line with what other attorneys of his experience charge, the total fees often amount to less. He has solid oral advocacy skills and can most of the time provide an answer to his client's questions on the spot.
