I obtained Peter's services for my divorce. It was a very difficult time for me but Peter put me at ease. He is very professional and most of caring of his clients. The information he provided to me helped me understand the process. He helped me out a great deal through the whole ordeal. I would highly recommend Peter.

I was lucky enough to have Pete as my divorce attorney. He wasn't just my attorney. He was my advisor through the entire process. I had a fairly complex divorce with the marital assets, my business, 3 children, and a very upset ex-wife. Needless to say, the assets were distributed equitable, my business remained untouched and I get to spend 50% of my time with my amazing kids! If I could sum his work up in 3 words....Realistic, aggressive, responsive. This process is tiring and stressful and you need someone like Pete on your side. I would recommend Pete Banfe as a legal advisor any day!

It is no surprise to me that Pete was recognized as a rising star in Super Lawyers Magazine from 2009-2014 and voted "Awesome Attorney" in South Jersey Magazine in 2013. Two years ago, I hired Pete to represent me in a complicated and highly contentious divorce proceeding. It was an emotionally devastating experience for me and my son. Pete demonstrated the highest levels of expertise, integrity and compassion throughout the year-long battle.
I was deeply impressed with Pete's expertise in matrimonial law. My ex-spouse hired two separate attorneys from New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Undaunted by the barrage of legal diatribe, Pete never failed in his ability to know the law and defend my legal rights. His wise counsel, especially under duress, showcased his leadership skills and gave me complete confidence in his abilities.
At one of the most vulnerable times in my life, Pete consistently demonstrated the highest levels of integrity. Our conversations were always respectful and honest. He immediately contacted me with relevant details of my case and worked collaboratively with me in all decisions. It was not unusual for him to go the extra mile and call me on the weekend to make sure that we were fully prepared for the upcoming week.
Finally, Pete has great compassion. Over the course of a tumultuous year, he was patient, understanding and genuinely concerned about my family's well-being. At the end of every phone call, he always asked how my son was doing. On the night of the final hearing, he even called to make sure that we were okay. As a matrimonial attorney, Pete understands how strenuous divorce can be and he always had my back.
Pete Banfe is not just an amazing attorney, he is one of the most fundamentally decent human beings I have ever known. I credit Pete with saving me from decades of financial ruin and heartache. I enthusiastically recommend Pete Banfe to anyone going through the agony of divorce.

I hired Pete to assist in a couple of post judgment issues. My previous attorney went through a divorce and he hired Archer & Greiner so I too went for the best.
Before hiring Pete, things did not work out my way. My ex wife was very difficult to deal with.
I had always heard that the legal system works well when both parties agree to the rules. Early in my case, the process went out of control. Pete played by the rules, and by using the rules to our advantage, he brought the case back under control and turned several adverse decisions into very positive outcomes.
Additionally, we were the defendants in my case wherein my ex wife appealed a decision to the NJ Court of Appeals. Not only did Pete manage the case to a 100% confirmation of the lower court's decisions, he secured a reimbursement of legal fees from my ex wife.
Pete is the consummate professional who skillfully guided me and my case through the legal system. Hopefully I never have to go though a divorce again, but if I did, Pete would be the only attorney I would consider.

Peter did a great job and I would recommend him. If I had 1 complaint it it would be about billing. After the case was over he told me he would e mail me with what I needed to do but to call him when I received it. I called and he went over what was in the e mail and then billed me for the phone call. Other than that he did a great job .

To start, I've interviewed almost every attorney in South Jersey. At one point I opted to represent myself because I couldn't find someone I trusted to care as much about my case - as me.
Until I met Pete ...
Pete listened. Gave good advice. Followed up. Gave me insight into options. Gave me the perspective of the other attorney. The other party. The judge. The counselors. The admin court staff.
There wasn't an angle Pete didn't leave out. He was empathetic. But firm. He would listen but tell you - stop whining - if you went too far on an issue that wasn't relevant to your case (obviously in a nice way - but often best to cut losses on things that don't matter).
I truly wish I had Pete from the beginning. He's an incredible attorney, and extremely well versed in court proceedings and new jersey law.
Happy to give a verbal referral for anyone that needs additional information. I've sent 3 friends his way, and wish I had retained his services sooner.

I turned to Pete and Archer Law at the beginning of my divorce proceedings. Despite the unreasonable position of my ex spouse, Pete always handled my situation with class and expert knowledge and recommendations. In the end, I was more than happy and grateful with my final divorce agreement. Pete is not just an excellent attorney, he is a genuinely good guy.

I've had the privilege of working with Pete Banfe over a number of years. I turned to him at one of the most difficult times in my life - when my marriage was ending. I was extremely upset, my four sons were deeply effected and I was also very confused. Pete analyzed my situation and determined the best path to travel that would set me up to start to build a life on my own as well as enable me to provide for my sons who were splitting their time with their parents in two separate homes. The most valuable service Pete provided was that he advocated for me when I was unable to advocate for myself. That was incredibly helpful. The most affirming event that occurred during this process was when Pete was publicly praised in open court by the judge who was hearing our motion. She recognized Pete for his knowledge of the law and his knowledge of courtroom procedures. I've referred a number of people to him over the years. I'll always be grateful to Pete and would recommend him to anyone in need of Marriage and Family Law expertise.

He was very helpful. When I asked him my best course of action he gave me his professional opinion and personal opinion when asked. He made my divorce as easy as he could.
