I was very pleased with the outcome of our case. I was given very prompt and knowledgeable information throughout the entire process.

I have relied on Pierson Backes and the Backes & Backes firm for personal and business legal services for many years now.
On the personal side, he has helped me through real estate transactions and estate planning. In business, he has recently been guiding me through some thorny contract negotiations. I feel that I am well represented when working with Pierson, more confident and knowledgeable about the issues and the outcomes.
Smart, genuine and professional, Pierson listens and learns and then provides sound, unvarnished legal advice. He's compassionate, but he's tough, with a ton of integrity. You want him in your corner.

I've used Pierce for many years from real estate to personal representation and he has always done exceptional for me. Hes knowledgeable and personable and I now after years of legal help from him consider him my friend. Hes a great person to have on your side although sometimes its hard to hear the truth about the outcome of each particular case, he never withholds truth about the legal system as other attorneys would just to make some profit. For these reasons hes very successful and deserves all the credit from his hard work.This is a lawyer and a man who other attorneys should emulate to improve the justice system but I guess if you did that we wouldn't have a Court system, just easy dispute resolution with fair and reasonable outcomes, always.

Pierson has over 15 years of experience and the praise from clients and respect of other attorneys for his legal skill and knowledge. His answers to questions at Avvo.com are well thought out and to the point. If you have a question about how lawsuits work or how to resolve a dispute without a lawsuit, and his office is anywhere near you, I recommend him to you.
