It's a challenge to describe in mere words what a phenomenal attorney Pete is. Throughout the entire time he handled my criminal case, which was a very serious, lengthy, and incredibly challenging one to achieve a positive outcome for, the fact that Pete unwaveringly demonstrated exceptional legal competency and skill, exuded a genuine, well-founded confidence, and gave me a significant amount of face-to-face time with him provided me comfort during the darkest time of my life and every reason to trust in him and have faith that everything humanly possible was being done to help me. Yet, more to the point, he never failed to pour less than the absolute full weight of his talent, energies, heart, and naturally persuasive personality into making genuine headway in turning the tide in my favor. Pete is of the extremely rare breed of attorney that will truly bend over backwards for each and every one of his clients, never giving less than a 110% effort in every case. Even more impressive is how crystal clear it is that he is literally personally invested in his clients, not just professionally so. Despite my initially severe post-war psychological disorders, the fact that he showed an authentic compassion for me as a human being and my plight, got me the help I needed, and never, ever wavered in his faith in me was a very significant source of strength for me from which I drew to help pull myself out of my severe depression, anxiety, and despair that got me into trouble in the first place. He is incredibly well networked: he has strong professional connections with the best professional experts, has very influential relationships with countless others throughout the criminal justice system, on both sides of the courtroom, so to speak, and has the diplomatic talent to maximize the benefits he can obtain from those professional relationships. If you are looking for a defense attorney that can work what seems like miracles, who sincerely sees and treats you as a redeemable human being who deserves a real shot at a second chance at life, and will do absolutely everything within his power to get the best possible outcome for you, Pete is your man. As others have described him, he is indeed a ferocious pitbull in defending his clients, but is also, at heart, a wonderfully compassionate human being--his work is not just a job to him. (He has kept in contact with me, after I was successfully released, to keep up on how well I'm doing.) He is the embodiment of the antithesis against the public's stereotypical perception of attorneys, and the epitome of exactly what every defendant across the country deserves to have when finding themselves up against the heartless beast the criminal justice system is in reality.
I met Pete in 2002. At first I thought I was making the wrong choice.. I was definatly not dissapointed with the services of Mr. Mazzone and his legal team. They are the best in the buisness. I was looking at spending the rest of my life locked away for circumnstances that were out of my control. He did everything and more that was told to me. At the same time he was representing another young man and got him completly exhonerated. He is a tazmanian devil in the courtroom. Thanks Pete!! T. Williams
I was facing a robbery and much more. Got caught up in a huge mess that was very sureal. Almost like it came straight out of a movie. Extremely complicated and very stressful. Pete kept telling me to relax and let him handle it. When you are facing jail time, it is not very easy to relax. Not only did he handle my case, but I never even stepped foot in a court room. Pete is more than amazing. Words cannot decribe how good I feel. If you are in a bad position in life, call Pete, it will be the best call you have ever made!
I was arrested for murder back in October of 2007, Pete was recommended by a friend of the family, and I am really happy that we took their advice. Pete and his team handled the roller coaster ride amazingly. They always had some one available to answer my questions in and out of jail. He was able to pick through my entire case witch was extensive near 3 thousand pages of discovery and memorize every bit that was necessary for him to get the point across. He will give you a straight answer with out beating around the bush, and when your in the kind of situation where you need him that's exactly what you want. Pete and his team were professional, prompt, and as long as you give him truth of the situation he will give it his all. Through my year long investigation and 2 week trial Pete used all of his extensive resources to show to the court the truth of what happened in my case. In the end I was acquitted of all charges and am now back in school as apposed to doing 25 to life. If you ever find your self in need of a lawyer I would start here.
Peter is the go to person if you need an excellent lawyer. He is articulate, unassuming and ferocious!!!
On more than one occasion he has proven that he is worth every cent.
As I sit here and try to think of what to say about Pete words come like smart, caring, brilliant, genius, over the top, napoleon, but all I can come up with is FIGHTER!!!!!
I met Pete on 10/29/07 at 9:45am in his office with my wife. I remember like it was yesterday, not a year ago. Pete behind his desk and I in the left seat and my wife in the right, he looked me in the eyes and said I will do everything I can for your son and I will NEVER GIVE UP ON HIM!!! Pete kept his word. This man all you could think of in a defense attorney, and yes just like TV he is a court room gem. I told my family attorney that if we loose this case its not because of Pete! Well we won!!! Or shall I say my son won. I know people say attorneys are expensive,YES THEY ARE but Pete is not any more then the rest of the bunch, but he is worth twice the amount (don’t tell him he might send me another bill). If you have the need (and yes the money) for a defense attorney you can do no better than Pete Mazzone. I was lucky to have some personal attorneys recommend Pete to me, but you my not, so take my advice HIRE HIM!!!!!
Pete Mazzone can be intense and abrasive and he wont think twice about telling you what he thinks. You may not like it! But if you're looking for an attorney who is going to defend you without judging you and give you 200 percent effort with the experience, education and devotion to ensure your case has the best outcome possible then I would definately recommend Mr. Mazzone. When he represented me in my case, he was a public defender and overloaded with cases. Most of them probably more serious then mine. But he always made me feel that my case was of utmost importance to him and he ended up working what seemed like miracles for me. I have heard that he is expensive now, but many of them are. With Pete, you will definately get a SOLID defense. He has worked with the people in Snohomish County for many years and knows the personalities of all of the Judges and most of the prosecutors. He is respected by his peers and even when he was a public defender, he didn't kiss up to the prosecutor (like you see with sooo many of these guys). He's there for you! Good luck with your case.
