Highly Recommend
Mr. Jameson takes the time to thoroughly understand the situation, presents a comprehensive strategy, adjusts it as you decide after advisement, and pursues it effectively. Peter is responsive and pro-active, personable and professional. I highly recommend him.

Amazing dedicated and compassionate
When I first met Pete I came to him completely scared and concerned about the future well-being of myself and my children. From the moment I met him I knew I had made the right decision in retaining him. He kept me calm during an incredibly stressful situation and made me feel comfortable through the entire process. I trusted him completely. He worked tirelessly to protect me and my kids and I will forever be grateful. He is fair and is willing to work with the other side to try to come to a reasonable resolution. He is incredibly prompt in responding often responding to me even on weekends when I would be in a panic. Watching him in court I knew that I made the right decision when I hired him he is fantastic and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone with a custody dispute or divorce etc. I truly appreciate the work Pete did for me and how quickly he was able to get it done. One of the things that struck me most about Pete was that it was not about how much he could bill me it was about doing a good job and protecting me and my kids. He always made sure he looked for the most economical and reasonable solution for me and I truly appreciate everything he did.

Attentive Lawyer
Both Peter and his assistant were great. I was all worked up when we met. I had a lot of questions and concerns, but they both listened to me and put my mind at ease from the start. I feel like I told them both my life story and they actually listened. Means a lot. After my consultation, he always got back right away, which no other lawyer did without a retainer. He even took my custody agreement and told me exactly what needed to change for no additional change. Thank you so much to the Law Office of Peter L. Jameson! Tim Ucker

Excellent
I also heard horror stories about divorce lawyers. When I decided to file for divorce I went to Mr. Jameson for a consultation. I had carefully written out all of my questions. Mr. Jameson answered all of my questions and even asked me some questions about my situation. He is extremely knowledgeable, kind, and honest. Mr. Jameson made sure that the outcome of my divorce was in my best interest.

Honest, Kind, and a True Gentleman
My friend had recently been divorced, and I’d heard nothing but nightmare stories about her lawyer and how—despite her financial situation—he burned through her retainer...and then some. So when I finally made the big decision to divorce as well, I wasn't just nervous, I was terrified. But Peter Jameson changed all that. Not only did he listen to me—he really heard me and laid out a plan that worked for me and not just him. Although we did eventually use up my retainer, it was necessary, it happened gradually and fairly, and it was fully documented. He made sure I understood the process and expected costs, and at several points he even recommended we not take certain steps he deemed too costly and not worth the time. In the end, the divorce didn’t just go smoothly—it was more successful than I could have ever hoped. Although I don’t plan on marrying again anytime soon (let alone going through another divorce), if I did, I’d choose Peter all over again.

A lawyer that actually cares
When I came to Peter I was already emotionally and financially drained. I took my ex to court for support in May of 2015. I hired a well known firm to represent me. However, despite having an extremely expensive well-known lawyer, I was jerked around more than ever. My ex and his attorney were constantly showing up without court ordered documents, requesting adjournments, or just blatantly not showing up, and nothing was done about it. I was very clear about my financial situation with my attorney, but the bills just kept coming in and I was getting nowhere. 14 months later and 17k in legal fees it finally ended. However, ten days later my ex filed for full custody. I stayed with my heartless lawyer for a few more months, but the same exact crap of adjournments and "forgotten" court dates was happening. I was now 25k into legal fees and I couldn't afford to play the game anymore. I fired my attorney and tried to do the case on my own, until it appeared we were going to trial and the judge strongly advised me to get an attorney. Broke and desperate, I did a google search and decided to have a consultation with Peter, honestly because he was across the street from the court house and there would be no traveling fees. As soon as I met him I knew my prayers were answered and he was going to help me. I came to Peter in November of 2016 and everything was done and finalized by the beginning of February. My only regret is that I didn't reach out to Peter sooner. He's attentive, he's knowledgeable and he's kind. This is an attorney who is not just looking to take your money, he actually wants to help you.

Would be happy to use again(although I hope I don't have to)
He was easy to work with, responded in a timely fashion to any questions I had and although my case was as simple as it gets, he was still there to help resolve my divorce as quickly and as simply as possible. I found him through Google and found that he was definitely the best result especially with being so local.

Here is an Divoce Attorney You want on your side!
I live out of NY state and needed a Divorce attorney who would be there for me and stand up for my rights. Peter not only squashed what my ex wife wanted thru the courts, he found other areas that I was OVERPAYING, and had it all reduces! He knows the law and the way the courts operate and work. He is the go to attorney you want on your side in the courtroom! I'm glad my ex-wife did not hire him, and I found him first. People, do your homework, and get a lawyer to fight for your rights! I glad I hired Peter!

Excellent Family Lawyer
Peter represented me various times in Family Court and I highly recommend him. He was always fair and trustworthy and always focused on the best interest of the children. Thanks to him I have more visitation rights with my kids. He stood up for my rights as a father, after years of never getting any results with other lawyers.

Expert Family Law Representation!
It gives me great satisfaction to recommend Peter Jameson. His competence for family law extends far beyond the skills for which he was originally hired. Pete not only met but exceeded my expectations for what turned out to be a very contentious custody battle with relocation. With exceptional knowledge and the ability to write compelling arguments central to my case, Pete never wavered from the most significant element of my trial, which was protecting the well being and safety of my child. For the nearly two years that he represented me, it is with great respect and gratitude that I can attest to his superior attention to detail and timely response for each and every inquiry I put forth. I am forever grateful for the skill and professionalism Pete provided, but most of all, I am indebted to his high degree of integrity. Peter Jameson is nothing short of exemplary and I would highly recommend, without hesitation, his services to any individual seeking an expert family law attorney who is both honest and ethical.

A lawyer better than I could have hoped for.
Very Happy with the excellent job of lawyering Mr. Jameson did for me. From the time of the show cause order until the judges judgment only 2 months passed (April 07,2011 —June 06, 2011). This was due to his ever so finely composed moving papers. From res judicata to the residual statute of limitations he nailed it right on the head. He painted just the right picture in filing the cross motion, and promptly provided all copies as well as the judges judgment. I am very happy I chose Mr. Jameson

"I endorse this lawyer 110%! I absolutely endorse Mr. Jameson for all your matrimonial, family, child custody/visitation and child support matters. He is a hardworking, honest and extremely knowledgeable attorney. He is well respected in the legal community. I have even had a case or two with him and I have seen his "in-court" demeanor. He is definitely someone you want on your side. I was so impressed with Mr. Jameson that I have even sent my own family and friends to him for help when they have needed a divorce or had a family court problems. And when my family & friends had their case(s) concluded - each one thanked me for sending them to Mr. Jameson! That is the best endorsement anyone can get in cases such as these, because there are usually no winners in a divorce or family court matter. But, his professionalism, expertise and commitment to his client's rights sets him apart from others practicing and in my opinion he is the "go to" guy in matrimonial and family law!"
Child support Attorney | Apr 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Pete Jameson is an outstanding lawyer as skilled in the Courtroom as he is at the negotiating table. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking the assistance of a top-notch family law attorney. His work as a Mediator and Parent Coordinator gives him a unique problem-solving perspective that serves his clients well. Similiarly, his experience as an attorney working "in the trenches" gives him unique insight in his role as a mediator and parent coordinator. I would highly recommend him as an attorney, mediator or parent coordinator."
Family Attorney | Apr 22

In the many years I have known him, I have found him to be an unyielding advocate for his clients. His knowledge of the law, especially in the areas of matrimonial and family law, is surpassed only by his devotion to his clients and their cases. The matters Peter handles often involve clients in need of help during some of the most difficult moments of their lives and I have no doubt that by selecting Peter as their attorney, they have made a wise choice. For these reasons and more, I endorse Peter Jameson, Esq."
