I was very pleased with all my dealings with Peter. He explained things well and advised me in a practical, down-to-earth manner. Although I wasn't in on the details of his negotiations with my opponent's attorney, these negotiations came out better than I expected. He knows how things work in the court system.
During lengthy and emotional conflict over an estate, I found his guidance reassuring.
I'm thrifty and I was very pleased with how Peter used his time on my case.

I would absolutely recommend Peter. My daughter had shoplifted for the first time. I found Peter by website and decided to email him a note. I had no idea what to do, what mine and my daughters rights were and how much trouble she would face. I emailed Peter on a weekend not even thinking he would get back to me. Within hours I got a response from Peter. I could believe it! He sounded very genuine, caring and explained in general terms what my daughter would be facing. He really put me at ease. With his guidance we were able to face the court system with confidence . She has learned her lesson without facing criminal charges on her record. I found Peter to be extremely caring, quick to respond, and knew the court system. I would highly recommend him.
