  • Kenneth Francis Matejka

    Peter Myers is an excellent estate planning attorney. Through my work at the Lawyer Referral Service of the Bar Association of San Francisco I came in regular contact with hundreds of lawyers and Peter is the attorney I would choose for my estate planning needs. I recommend him without reservation.

  • Diedre Wachbrit Braverman

    Peter has an encyclopedic knowledge of advanced estate planning techniques. That enables him to mix and match strategies to best suit each client's values, assets, needs and wants. It's no surprise that he's sought out by some of the most affluent families in California for estate planning. I highly endorse his work.
