He took the impossible and made it happen.
For years I was told by city & state clerks, officials and lawyers "it can't be done", "it'll never happen", "Massachusetts doesn't do that". No lawyer would take my case because they each said "it can't be done."
Peter took my case. Peter got the job done. With compassion, creativity and commitment.
I am eternally grateful!

I've engaged Peter to assist with a number of issues over the years and each time his dedication, organization, smarts, and logical approach have been invaluable. From real estate to small business services, Peter is our go-to guy. Could not recommend more highly.

Peter Irvine has worked with our performing group for 15 years. I would recommend him to anyone, and especially to artists (particularly musicians) looking for an extremely intelligent lawyer who understands what it takes to make a life and a living as a creative professional. Peter is consistently prompt and expert with legal advice, and he is also a passionate and persistent advocate for his clients. He is a pleasure to talk with, and someone we trust completely and have relied on for many years.

Peter Irvine patiently explained the value and process of trademarking a product. In English, so I understood what he said. He kept me updated on the process and provided service at a reasonable rate. I recommend Peter Irvine without reservation.

I am a freelance musician, traditional dance educator, choral arranger/composer, and publisher of traditional dance materials for children and publisher of choral arrangements for adults and children. Peter Irvine has helped me in many aspects of our work. When I published two collections of my choral arrangements of songs, he helped find the copyright owners and negotiate agreements for fifteen of the songs. More recently he has helped search for copyright owners and get mechanical licenses for many of the songs for the companion recording. He has always been very responsive with any legal questions I ask about permission issues. He has a gift for helping me to understand some of the complicated legal issues involved in copyright and publishing. He has helped me often with legal advice that has helped shape my publishing career. He is an outstanding lawyer for independent free lance musicians, songwriters, composer/arrangers, artists and publishers.

As an artist, it's been very valuable to me that Peter is an active artist. His multifaceted engagement in entertainment (lawyer/artist) makes me feel a camaraderie with him that is hard to find as well as secure in his advice.

Peter Irvine has been a great resource for our family for business (we run a two-person S-corp) as well as personal matters (drawing up a will; questions about my ailing mother).
I have referred many people to him over the last few years that he's been our lawyer.
Easy-going, to the point, very knowledgeable.

I've worked with Peter on and off for several years. As my business has grown, I've had to lean on him more and more for advice and support. He has been excellent at helping me understand and interpret documents, draft agreements, follow up with clients, and offer general advice.

With very few exceptions Peter has been my only lawyer since 2002. With equal thoroughness, professionalism and respect he has helped me navigate music and film contracts with everyone from big players like Sony and Disney to the most DIY outfits imaginable. He's also helped me buy a house and figure out a number of number of confusing non-arts-related legal issues. Trust is an important consideration in looking for legal help. I trust Peter, and with good reason over many years.

Peter was our real-estate lawyer for the purchase of a home that fell through at closing and for the home we ultimately purchased. From our first call until our closing we found Peter to be thoughtful, patient and very willing to do whatever it took to help us understand and make well-informed decisions even under difficult circumstances. We especially appreciated how communicative and available Peter was - he responded very quickly when we had questions or concerns. I hope it's a long time until we need another real estate lawyer but when we do we'd be very happy to work with Peter again.
