I met Peter while I was a student at Patino School of Law. Peter was my professor in a practice class that focused on assisting low-income clients in need of legal assistance. I was impressed at how Peter made clients feel instantly comfortable by displaying genuine concern while at the same time honing in on their legal issues. I am lucky to have had such a good role model. I will forever be grateful to Peter for his guidance and support. He is genuine, accessible and extremely knowledgeable. I endorse this lawyer.
