Attorney Peter Billings is truly amazing. I used his services for a time-consuming and delicately negotiated criminal matter. From the onset of the criminal matter, Atty Billings was candid and honest about how the case would proceed and typical outcomes for the charges involved. He was available to me via phone calls, texting and email on a consistent 24/7 basis. Additionally, he was a part of all interviews with law-enforcement, State agencies, and other legal entities, if needed. Recommendations made by him related to all criminal matters were explained carefully and thoroughly. With the consistent legal support from Atty Billings, I never felt I was out of the loop with any negotiations between the State and him. His cost was extremely fair compared to all other criminal defense attorneys in the area that I consulted with prior to his selection. While I hope to not need his services in the future, there is no other phone call I would make for an attorney if a criminal matter arose. You can rest for assured he will maintain strict confidentiality in regard to the criminal matter and is well respected in the State of Connecticut judicial system. The outcome of the criminal matter was better than expected, however it was in line with expectations, as explained by Atty Billings at my first consultation, for the case. If you need a criminal defense attorney you would be doing yourself a horrible disservice if you do not reach out to Atty Billings for a consultation.

You can just tell that this isn't just a job for him. I have a case with him right now and he has been organized, present and patient. There has never been a moment where I felt judged. The charges against me are going to be dismissed. Peter Billings exceeded what I expected from a lawyer and he's a great person. He has returned every phone call, text, etc in a very timely manner. I never felt worried about his ability or his commitment to my case. It's great when you feel like you are the only client your lawyer has.

Attorney Peter Billings represented me for a complex legal matter in Ct. I am from out of state. Attorney Billings is organized, efficient, intelligent and understands the law. His reputation in the court system is highly regarded and positively viewed. He resolved my case in a timely manner with the best possible outcome, exceeding my expectations. I'm deeply grateful.
If I ever need legal services I would not hesitate to retain Attorney Billings for representation. If the matter was not his field, I would look to him for a referral.

I was faced with a felony conviction followed by two violations and a very high likelihood of a jail term. The facts of the case, the appropriate punishment, lets face it meant nothing. My fate was based upon the mood of a prosecutor and my lawyer utilizing everything he knows about the law and leveraging relationships. I told Peter I wanted a nolli. He got me a misdemeanor without violations, jail time or extended probation. Peter managed the process, leveraged his relationships and unlike most of the attorneys I've watched, chose to make it work without a dozen continuance's at 500 a shot.
The icing on the cake was hearing another lawyer sitting on the bench behind us whisper "Nice, Nice job Peter congrats". Thanks Peter. I'm okay with you spending that nolli you keep in your back pocket on the next guy...I couldn't be more pleased!

Needless to say, I did not envision myself encountering a divorce so early in my relationship but Attorney Billings provided the much needed stability to guide me through the complex legal process. While it seemed like everything around me was in disarray, Attorney Billings proved to be extremely trustworthy, knowledgeable and communicative while he navigated the situation and kept my best interests as his priority. Together with his affordable rate, his top notch service is something that I will forever be grateful.

Hiring Peter Billings for my criminal case was one of the best and most important decisions we have made in our lives. Without the investment of time and knowledge that Peter contributed to my case I definitely would be yet another innocent person serving a prison sentence for a crime I did not commit. Before we met Peter my fiance and I cried daily because we was led to believe there was no hope for an acquittal and I was encouraged to take a plea deal that involved jail time by two other attorneys. I was reserved to my fate and was about to give up when we met Mr. Billings. Since his introduction to my case my fiance, our three children and I became filled with great hope because we finally found an attorney who believed in us and had a plan to fight the case brought against me. We now had my freedom to look forward to. Our sleepless nights became sleeping nights, because my attorney explained the case clearly and honestly and he always made sure that we understood the good and the bad. Peter came to our home for many of our meetings to discuss the case and he never had any time constraints as well as field questions from our family. During these discussions Peter talked to us as if we were family or good friends; the level of compassion he exudes was very important to us, because it renewed our faith in humanity.
Although this was a job for Peter, by my estimation we did not pay him enough. We make that determination base on the time he invested and the success he brought to my case. If the outcome of my case was unfavorable, even with the disappointment of knowing truth did not prevail, my fiance and I know in our hearts we received the best representation possible. Thanks to Peter we are able to close our eyes at nights and rest peacefully without any fear of a prison term hanging over our heads. Peter Billings is more than a top notch attorney; he is a good friend, a humanitarian, and a man of honor, who we would highly recommend for any criminal defense case. To quote Peter, "I am a criminal lawyer and I work hard at my job" and he never faltered in proving this through his tireless effort in his handling of my case. We will forever be grateful to Peter and now I feel I owe him my life.

I cannot possibly find the words to describe the service that Peter Billings afforded my daughter-in-law, my son and for that matter my entire family. I am truly appreciative of all he has done including the extra effort he extended during this case. Peter took on the child negligent/ abuse case against my daughter-in-law after two other lawyers practically provided zero help while encouraging her to accept a plea deal involving prison time even though she was innocent. Peter took the case and hit the ground running and never stopped until the case was dropped. He is extremely knowledgeable in his field; he is timely, shows passion and great responsibility to his clients and the work he does and continues to do. He has gone above and beyond his scope of duty to assist us in every way possible and he is even open to suggestions. We never felt rushed in any meetings, while discussing the case, and whenever he provided information about the case he omitted nothing and his explanations were always crystal clear. Peter Billings was worth far more than he charged, and he never made us feel as if it was about the money. He exemplifies the title of a great lawyer and a wonderful person. We will forever be grateful to him. If you want the best possible chance of good representation, I highly recommend Peter Billings for any case you might have, because I know with certainty even if the case is not in his area of expertise he will make a great recommendation for you.

We hired Peter Billings to represent my sister in law against a child endangerment and neglect case. At the time we hired Peter he was the third criminal defense attorney we had employed during the course of two and a half years. Peter was highly recommended by another attorney since he would have been less costly. I must say my family and I were extremely impressed from the moment we met him, because he was very knowledgeable of the case and was well organized during our first meeting and a trait he maintained the entire time he worked on the case. Peter picked up the case while an unwanted deal was being offered which would result in her serving a period of 3 years in prison and 5 years probation. Peter was very dedicated to the case he worked the case from all ends to ensure that all areas of concerns we taken into consideration, such as immigration status and etc. he kept us fully informed. Ultimately, after 1 year of court hearings we were completely prepared for trial, but by the grace of God Peter was able to get all charges dropped and my sister in law can rest assured that she will be there to raise her 3 young children... Thanks to Peter! I HIGHLY recommend him, because he is very devoted, honest and he will work your case as if it's the only one he has.... I assure you will NEVER regret hiring him.
