professional and personal
Attorney Peter Rodgers is very responsible. He reviewed my situation and explained why it was not so beneficial for me to file a lawsuit. He then gave suggestions on other options. He and his office is very professional.

Wrongful death with Pain and Suffering
Peter was hired to navigate and negotiate a complex, medical wrongful death claim. Peter is very thorough, personable, knowledgeable and the consummate professional. After deposing the surgeon responsible for the tragic medical outcomes, the hospital offered to settle our case. Peter's negotiating skills resulted in a very favorable seven figure settlement.

Professional and Knowledgeable
Peter Rodgers did a great job in advising and helping me through a difficult time after my car accident. He was always accessible and he gave me a tremendous sense of security and hope. Peter is very professional, knowledgeable, thorough, and dedicated to his clients. If I ever needed representation in the future, I would turn to him first, as well as, recommend him to any family or friends in need of legal services.

Attorney Review
Attorney Peter Rodgers and his entire staff provided our family excellent service! We were very pleased to have him represent us.
Posted by Mark | November 6, 2014
Superb Performance
Peter was beyond what we had expected when we were referred to him. My family was unsure if we even needed assistance and Peter along with his team took the time to understand our situation and more importantly what was important to us. He expertly navigated through the process and obtained realistic results. He clearly is an expert in his field but showed genuine interest in what was important to us.
