Peter Lawrence Cianchetta

About me

I want to be your attorney.  My philosophy is that people have problems and my office is here to help them.  We all have been there, in need of some kind of help and it really does not matter how you ended with a need the main thing is helping with your problem.  I graduated with Honors from Golden Gate University with a BS in Accounting and Graduated 10th in my class at Lincoln Law School.  Prior to going to Law School, I started working for a landscaping company in high school, and a roofing company after graduation.  I joined the US Air Force in 1981 and served for almost 10 years.  I also worked for the US Postal Service, the State of California mainly at the Teacher’s Retirement System where I prepared the financial statements for the $100 Billion Retirement System.


I provid a free initial consultation where I will evaluate your case and help you determine what is your best option.  If I am not able to help you I can refer you to an attorney that can.  Call today for your appointment.
