Attorney Peter Thomas was assigned my case for trial in Queens County. I asked about him before I met him and found that he is both respected and feared. Respected as a prepared and experienced litigator and feared by his adversaries as lawyer who gets big money verdicts. While I was pleased to hear such feedback I was not sure if the facts of my case needed a guy like him. Turns out the other lawyer lied to the jury and made ups facts that were not part of my case. I saw Mr. Thomas politely rip into the other attorney and tell the jury to focus on my case. He was riveting to watch during summation. The jury was consulting for 2 days and gave me a great verdict. I was very pleased to have met him and had him as my lawyer. I have a new lawyer now and will always call Mr. Thomas for any legal questions.

I was injured in a car accident and had the same lawyer for 2 years. When I got a call from my lawyer saying they hired a trial specialist to handle my case I was concerned. I met with Mr. Thomas and it was clear he knew what he was doing. He told me he has taken 100's of jury verdicts and that he would try or settle my case and that the decision would be up to me. He prepared me for my testimony on the weekend and spent 4 days on trial. Mr. Thomas destroyed the defense expert doctor on cross examination and nice settlement offer was made. Mr. Thomas told me to take the money, settle the case and I did. We spoke to the jury after the settlement and they would not have awarded me as much money as I got from the settlement. I was very happy. Mr. Thomas is an excellent litigator and very easy to talk to. He seems to knows many of the people in the Queens Courthouse and even the Judge said I had a good lawyer and did the right thing to settle my case. I would certainly call Mr. Thomas if I ever needed a lawyer again.
