Highly recommended
I first hired Pete to handle my personal injury case after a car accident over 15 years ago. I didn't have to worry about a thing. Pete took care of it all and negotiated a settlement that was even more than I expected. Since then I have used Pete to handle real estate, marital and contract issues and have the utmost trust in his ability. Pete is a "stand-up" guy who really has your best interests at heart.

Corporate Attorney
Peter from the very 1st day we contacted him in 2007 to our current corporate relationship with him has been the most responsive counsel we have used over the years. He always returns a call within a business day. Our service business relies heavily on contracts and contract language to protect us and our customers and Peters' legal advice has served us well over the years. We have used his services in and out of the courtroom for both business and personal matters.

I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Marty and Pete for over 35 years. From handling the closing of my first home to making sure my family and I were taken care of after a life changing car accident. Pete and his father have always been honest and reputable. They always answered any question that I may have had truthfully. I highly recommend Pete to everyone that I know!!
