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.

I couldn't of been happier with the service and legal counsel I received by Peter L. Jameson during my divorce. He was responsive to all my needs and helped me to navigate through the entire divorce process, to ultimately achieve the best outcome. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for exceptional guidance during a divorce.

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.

I endorse this lawyer. I have known Peter since his high school days. He taught my son to play base guitar. As much as I thank him for giving my son a passion he still loves and works it, I evenly more heartily endorse him as a consummate, caring, professional and skilled attorney, He is always there for his clients, treats his fellow lawyers with respect and is a vigorous litigator.

I have worked with Pete on a number of cases in the family law area. As a fellow attorney, I can say that Pete really is one of the good guys. He is knowledgeable and represents his clients zealously but he is also reasonable in his demands and a nice guy.
