My teenage son received a ticket for Negligent Driving 2nd degree. I did not want this to go on his driving record and wanted to keep my insurance from going sky high. I felt he was already punished enough by the loss of a car that was totaled (the vehicle did not have full coverage). I contacted multiple lawyers seeking representation for him. I spoke with several assistants and left messages that were not returned promptly from other lawyers. Upon calling Jack Peterson, I was able to speak with him immediately and shared my situation. We set up a meeting the next day. Both my son and I were very impressed with how friendly and approachable Jack was. He shared that he was a former prosecutor and an insurance defense attorney. I felt he was uniquely qualified to understand both sides of our case and the arguments that would be made for and against my son. He was very honest with us and shared what we could expect in the days to come. He was able to get the case dismissed--obviously we are very pleased with the outcome!
I understand that traffic cases are only a portion of what Jack Peterson argues. He handles criminal defense and personal injury cases also. I would definitely call him again to represent myself or my family. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of an excellent attorney.

This was the first time in my life I found myself in a situation that required a criminal attorney. I called several attorneys in the area. Jack was the only one who actually took the time to really inform me of the process, as well calmed my nerves. During our first meeting he explained everything in detail. As well he kept me informed constantly and promptly answered all of my questions and concerns. I was extremely nervous and stressed over my situation and Jack was wonderful at easing all of that. He did as he said he would do and ensured the deisred results we were looking for. While I hope I am never is such a pickle again, I would most certainly use Jack.

Received a speeding ticket and, having heard of his success and professionalism from a friend of mine, hired him to represent me in the case. I was consistently apprised of the situation and what to do at each step of the process and in the end, the case was dismissed. I am very pleased with the outcome and would recommend him to anyone needing a good lawyer. I will use him again in the future if necessary.

I am a truck driver and I got a ticket for speeding 15 miles over the speed limit. Because I have a CDL, my driving record is very important for my career and I was really worried about the consequences of this ticket- which would also affect my insurance as well. The consultation was quick and Mr. Peterson handled it from there. The ticket was eventually dismissed and it literally saved my driving record. I am very pleased with how this turned out and if I run into a similar situation again, or get into a car accident, I would definately not hesitate to call Mr. Peterson and work with him again.

I recently was charged for a DUI, he was able to drop it down to Neg 1. Jack Peterson walked me through each step I needed to do. He was extremely responsive to my emails. There is not a time that I felt that I was left out of what was going on. Great attorney!

I hired Jack Peterson to help me out with a moving violation that I felt I was wrongly accused of. When I met with him he was straightforward, honest, and very informative. He’s easy to talk with and makes you feel comfortable discussing your concerns. He clearly knows what he’s doing!
It was a truly painless process; he got the violation dismissed, and I never had to attend a court hearing. I would highly recommend Jack Peterson to my family, friends, and anyone else looking for help; he’s worth every penny!
Thank you Mr. Peterson!

Jack Peterson has provided an excellent service. Not only was I worried about the ticket I received. I had to be out of town during my hearing. Jack assured me that in the event we had problems he would let me know and that my time at court was not needed for the hearing.
That said the fee he charged me was very fair considering I didn't even have to travel from Seattle to Vancouver or take a day off work to challenge my ticket in court.
Jacks e-mail to me read Quote: Good news. I got your case dismissed this morning. Congratulations.
I couldn't have been happier as I was on the road doing business..

To Mr. Jack Peterson,
I would like to thank you for taking on my case. Three other attorneys said I wouldn't have a chance. You were very honest and told me this wasn't a win-win situation. Well you took the case and won-won! Your not only a good lawyer, your a very nice person. Thank you very much.

John (Jack) Peterson is an excellent attorney and I am very pleased with his legal representation! He has a great personal attitude. He treats his clients with dignity and respect. His communication skill are excellent. He rapidly returns phone calls and emails. I couldn't be more happy with his professional legal skills, as well as his focus on my case. After a great deal of work, Jack was able to get my charges dismissed. As can be imagined, this relieved a great deal of personal and family stress. I strongly recommend this attorney! When the chips are down, you'll be glad you have this professional representing your rights, your interests and your liberty!
