Mr. Kratsa provided excellent representation in my 2015 case. Very knowledgeable of the law. More importantly, he knows the nuances of the judicial process and the folks that oversee it in Chester County PA--judges, magistrates, clerks etc. Very personable; great at listening and providing advice and recommendations. Overall, an excellent and successful experience.

My case was a fairly simple one.
Public intoxication, and Disorderly conduct, both were fines, but I did not feel that I was at fault.
Peter was very close to the police officer in this case, and the judge as well. The charges were completely dropped, and I felt as if I had been represented very well.
I would highly recommend.
