Amazing Attorney
Peter Banfe has been great from start to finish. He was very understanding of what I needed as well as extremely professional. He was very much on top of getting my legal issue resolved as quickly as possible. Peter was very honest and did exactly what he said he would. He is highly recommended.

Deserves more than 5 stars
Mr. Banfe has represented me three times and each time has provided excellent services. He demonstrates excellent reasoning and sees the bigger picture of the situation. He is always readily available and answers emails and phone calls in a timely manner. He genuinely cares about the outcomes, and he respects my opinions and views about my situation. I would refer his services to anyone who needs an attorney. I believe with all my experiences with him that he is a top-rates attorney and deserves more than five stars.

Complex Custody Case
We are grandparents. Our son died in 2018. Our daughter-in-law was arrested for DUI and endangerment. We had to seek emergency custody. We needed to fight for joint custody to ensure our grandson was safe, well educated, and properly cared for. Pete was responsive, fought hard, and guided us through a very messy court case. We were successful and now have a joint custoday agreement with residential custody. We are very grateful we found Pete. He was always assessable and responded incredibly quickly. He even returned emails on weekends and at night. His office staff in very supportive, kind, and responsive. We have no doubt our journey with our daughter-in-law is not over. We will be using Pete in the future to help us protect our grandson and ourselves.

You won't be disappointed at all if you hire Pete Banfe. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose him 1,000 times over.

Outstanding Attorney!!!!!
Peter is an outstanding and extremely knowledgeable attorney. I needed an attorney to represent me as a situation arose after my divorce years ago and he was recommended to me. Since my original attorney retired, the thought of having to relate the ins and outs to someone new seemed overwhelming. Peter put me at ease immediately with his listening skills, compassion and his knowledge. Not only did he navigate a complex situation with his attention to detail, he met the challenge and succeeded. He was on point and left no stone unturned. My advice to anyone reading this is hire Peter to represent as you will not be disappointed.

Very thorough consultation
Went through various different strategies/defenses as opposed to only one quick response. I did not feel rushed at all - felt like he gave me his undivided attention.

Hard working and dedicated attorney
Mr. Banfe handled my divorce and I recently retained him to file a property amendment for me. He is extremely professional and kept me updated throughout the entire process. Mr. Banfe is extremely knowledgeable about his area of law expertise. I would highly recommend him to assist anyone with matters of divorce, separation, or family law.

Knowledgeable and Caring Divorce Attorney
Pete was beyond a pleasure to work with during my divorce. He was beyond professional and always responsive to any questions I had. He was empathetic and inspirational while helping me stay focused on the most important aspect. His attention to detail and expertise was truly an asset to me. Getting a divorce was by far the hardest thing to go through, and I simply could not have done it without Pete. If faced with this tough decision again, I would always choose Pete to represent me.

Awesome through and through
I would not only like to thank Peter Banfe from the bottom of my heart and also recommend anyone that is making a life decision to consider. Peter and I started this journey about 15 years ago. A life changing decision, a lifestyle change to bring me to my future happiness. Divorce is not an easy decision but once decided I knew that day when Peter walked into the room that he was my person to see me through. Peter is not only compassionate, a great listener and patient he is as thorough as can be, leaving no stones unturned. My divorce was final on August 2,2007. As time went on situations arose and Peter was ready and willing to continue those challenges with me as well. I must say today I would not have done anything differently the guidance and support I received was beyond what any words can say. Peter Banfe is an ‘Awesome Attorney’ and I am glad I was able to share my thoughts and opinion. Mary F.

5 STARS!!!
In dealing with my ugly divorce case, Pete was more than just an attorney representing me. Very understanding, patient, and always a relaxed atmosphere in his presence. I gained great respect for his knowledge and wisdom in helping me get a fair settlement. Pete walked me through each step of the process with great diligence and communication. I not only consider Pete a great attorney, but also a friend and would recommend him to anyone going through a horrible divorce. Thanks again Pete! 5 STARS!

Excellent attorney!
Peter Banfe is a leader in his field. He is honest, fair and has superb communication skills. His responsiveness was beyond expectation. When we initially consulted him, he suggested we attempt to settle "out of court and save a great deal of time and money" and even provided us great advice on how to accomplish this. We were a bit surprised at how open and honest he was. The attempts failed and we subsequently needed to retain him. We found him to be exceptionally bright, professional, diligent and efficient. In addition, I would be remiss not to mention his affable personality and wit. We felt a myriad of emotions during our process and Peter was understanding and compassionate. We knew early on in our relationship with Pete that no matter the outcome, we had the absolute best representation. We would not hesitate to use him in the future or recommend him to others.

Great man, even better attorney.
I was already being represented by a different attorney before I retained Pete, and I couldn't have been more satisfied. Mr. Banfe displayed intelligence, wit and that he was on top of his game during my divorce. He pointed out how much my previous attorney was just in a rush to settle instead of looking out for my best interest. He is patient, understanding and funny guy also. Aside from the attorney/client relationship he's also the kind of guy you could have a drink with. I would rehire for my future divorces.

Got me to the finish line!
Mr. Banfe represented me post Divorce to finalize paperwork that was left incomplete by another attorney. Mr. Banfe and his staff were professional and courteous every step of the way. He takes the time to listen and is always available and responsive. At a time when I was beyond frustrated Pete stepped up and worked on the problems and got the process moving along. My only regret is that I didn't hire Pete from the beginning of my divorce to represent me. If you want great representation and someone to stand up for you Pete is definitely the guy!
