So your someone with no money and no means to fight in court because you do not have a legal degree a one price lawyer is not what you should do.
In my case which was a complete atrocity because I first tried to do it myself turned out to be far worse after hiring this Lawyer.
Anyone would expect a legal professional to look after your best interest and do the right thing which is to explain the options you have and to appeal when something is utterly wrong.
This legal professional is not one you would want in the trenches with you nor would you want him to guide you through a cluttered legal system that is obvious to anyone that has been there has seen the absurdities that happen in a daily basis.
Perhaps it's just the system that rubs off in them but I beg to differ on that point.
This one price lawyer tosses the legal jargon in a mezmorizing fashiin which draws you in to believe you have just found that diamond in the rough.
As you walk away after initial consultation you feel as though this one cares and will be there for you......
This feeling quickly flees after the first time you Enter the courtroom and he raise little if any objection to the tightening of the noose around your neck as he tells you everything is ok we can file a motion or appeal which never happens.
A client expects aggression not a pacifist who allows things to go in such as the preclusion of evidence in your case.
You begin to feel trapped because you cannot afford one of those high priced lawyers but you have no choice and pray that this man is Columbo.
He lures you into believing that by saying nothing and holding your tongue is the way to go which feels good because it lowers your stress and anxiety because you just want this over with.
On through the trial this attitude is again and again used to soothe the anger and animosity one has going through the trial and tribulations the legal system has to offer.
Finally you wait for the end which seems to never come and one day he sends you a document from the other side with the wish list as he put it which he tells you means nothing because the judge is the one who decides The Who what why's and where's.
You ask to appeal this but he tells you that you must wait for the judge to decide. You call month after month he tells you these things take time..... again you raise the question about when will you put something in to get records in case where is equitable distribution In this what about this that and the other things which were never brought up or mentioned bu the opposition.
He will continually tell you just need wait and then we can file appeal when judge decides.
Call after call with the cordial hi this .... how you doing haven't heard anything yet will let you know as soon as I know.
And then one day the septic tank erupts and you find out a final decision was made months earlier. You are now beside yourself and call to confront him and he just says I told you months ago I thought you understood all of this.... countless words ensue with more diatribe or just BS to make it seem as though he has done everything right.
You now spend hours going through so many emotions and anger. You read code of ethics and how a legal professional should always give you options of what needs to be done and file appeal if a decision comes from Judge which is void of anything acceptable to you.
Do not expect anything from this lawyer as he will only do the minimum amount of work and will not look out for your best interest nor will he ever be confrontational to opposing counsel or exhaust all means to get your records into the court documents.
So much more I could tell you about his lack of raising a motion so you could see your kids.
By no means would I recommend this lawyer to anyone until perhaps he has an epiphany and realizes how he has impacted the life of another and the hardship he has cause by not doing the right thing for his clients.

We spoke briefly and his attitude is harsh and draining. He jumps to conclusions and makes under handed comments. I think he assumed all Americans must fight after they separate like animals when all some want is an easy review of paper work. He's a jerk and likes to pump his chest. Glad I understand some lawyers are just not as good as others before making a payment.

Peter is a brilliant thinker, he's kind, compassionate and is 100% on your side! He is the first lawyer that I have ever met that couldn't be bought or influenced by the opposing side. When I first retained Peter, opposing counsel called him to suggest that he team up with her to damage me. Not only was Peter shocked by this unprofessional behavior but he bitterly complained about it to appropriate authorities and used this behavior against the lawyer in my proceeding. Peter is available to his clients at all times of the day and night, you literally become a family member. His ability to think outside the box and anticipate the exact legal strategy the opponent will employ has resulted in the complete demolition of the oppositions case. After Peter was done at my trial, opposing counsel, the AFC and most importantly the judge were stunned into speechlessness. Peter is my attorney for life!!

Peter Lomtevas is smart, highly capable and was able to navigate the complexity of my situation. I'd spoken to a few others lawyers who said there was nothing I could do in regards to a divorce stipulation. I spoke with Peter a few times on the phone, he looked at my paperwork, and offered not only his advice but a solution, which worked in court. And another plus: he charges a flat rate so you don't feel like the clock is ticking when you speak to him on the phone, which is the case with most lawyers. I can't say enough positive things about Peter. He knows and understands the law and will tell you clearly what you are dealing with—and how to navigate the issues at hand.

I needed a question answered online and I had gotten 4 responses one of which Peter Lomtevas and he was the only one who understood the question and answered it precisely and to the point.
it was a refreshing experience for me. Thank you so, so much.

What a first impression! Peter spent 35 minutes on the phone with me at no charge, answering my questions and helping me realize I did not need to spend the thousands of dollars I was about to spend on an attorney for a prenup. What a stand-up guy! I can't thank him enough for his time and wisdom, and there's no question that I will use him in the future for a potential custody case that will need to be handled.
Thanks, again Peter! You saved me a ton of money and really put my mind at ease.

I retained Peter Lomtevas almost two years ago to represent me in an action case brought against me in a family matter. Even though I was extremely dissatisfied with the way he handled my case, I must at least state that Peter is usually very responsive when you need to speak to him.
However, other than his responsiveness, what I did find was that Peter is at times condescending when I did speak to him on the phone. I often felt he had a difficult time speaking to me in a civil manner. Sometimes it seemed he was fighting against me rather than for me.
In the end, the case was lost. Peter appeared to place the result on everything and everybody but himself. He even blamed me for losing the case?
I do not recommend Peter.

Mr Lomtevas has an encyclopedic knowledge of Civil procedure, and it's most appropriate application. Listen carefully to his advice and take heed. It is invaluable to have someone like Peter Lomtevas in your corner; someone who is a greater authority on rule of law than most judges.
I cannot thank him enough.

I think Peter is a great lawyer,he closed a chapter of my life, that was very, extremely stressful to me and my family. Mr lomtevas is very punctual, straight forward and persistent, throughout my whole case I felt very confident that the matter would of been resolved the right way, meaning without Him, I would of been another statistic of the system. Peter is very understanding, and very intelligent in his field, he took the time to explain each and every matter that occurred, and last but not least, even is team is very helpful to other situations, such as being helpful to ways of employment, due to stressful situations of being in court and still having to survive in life. Thank you Peter and ms Vera for being in my corner, I'm sure that any case that Peter in counter or takes, that he will do the best he can for a good outcome for his clients.
