Peter is an excellent attorney of the highest integrity. He was very helpful in assisting me with a few items concerning my residential property. Additionally, he has handled my estate planning and wills. He is honest, fair, and I know he has my best interests at heart. I appreciate having access to such a great professional to help me navigate my legal needs.

I used Peter primarily for my divorce as well as several other minor legal issues (RE transactions and an issue with my housing association). Peter and his team was always professional and responsive. With respect to the divorce, I felt he had every aspect covered throughout the entire process. He laid out a solid strategy from day one and he worked very efficiently. As such, I never felt he was "running up my bill" at any time. While my case was relatively straightforward, there were some valuation issues that occurred with our jointly owned home at the time of the divorce. Peter effectively argued in my favor that the drop in valuation of the home should have been considered in the ultimate settlement with my ex (I bought my wife out). This resulted in me saving meaningful dollars. I have and will continue to recommend Peter. In fact, the outcome of my divorce proceedings were so favorable that my ex-wife, who used another attorney, shared with me that she actually recommends Peter Bort as well!

Peter represented me in my divorce. The process was over a three year period. Stuck by me through it all and came through for me in the end!

Peter was able to provide clarity and expert advice as my divorce lawyer. He was able to help me to separate the emotion to make sound decisions. In particular he guided me through the custody negotiations to ensure the best outcome for my children. I felt very confident having him in my corner in the courtroom. He always made himself available for a quick call or email. I would recommend him to a friend- and I did!

Peter Bort was my attorney for my collaborative divorce. His professionalism, compassion and advocacy for my rights was just what I needed during this stressful life event. Having my interest first while balancing the collaborative approach with opposing counsel made this process seamless. I would recommend him in the future to anyone looking for an attorney! In fact, my ex husband recommended Peter to represent his good friend through his divorce procedure.

Peter handled a Tennant problem for me. He was quick and thorough and got the matter settled in one well written letter. I highly recommend Peter and would call on him again if the need arose.

I hired Peter to handle my divorce. An internet search and review of lawyer’s website yielded three potential candidates.
Peter was the first one I called. During our initial interview, it was clear Peter was concise and to the point.
He clearly described the process and set expectations. He listened and took the time to answer all the questions I had based on my own internet research.
Peter continues to assist in matters of child support.
I have recommended Peter to someone, who has had an initial consultation and plans to retain his services in their divorce matter.

We hired Mr. Bort to represent us when we sold our home without a seller's real estate agent. He was knowledgeable about the law as well as the business decisions that needed to be made. We appreciated his candor and ability to keep the deal simple and on track. We moved before closing and Mr. Bort handled all aspects of the close so we did not have to be present. Thank you!

I was referred to Bort Law by my employer and from the very beginning Peter Bort did a fantastic job represented me in a complicated divorce case. He is a very smart and compassionate family attorney who knows his stuff. He was thorough and did a great job of dealing with my wife’s attorney. He was always available on the phone/email and respond to my queries promptly. Peter always made it clear that during my divorce we were obligated to put my children's needs first, I really appreciated that. A divorce is by no means an easy process but if you need help negotiating your divorce agreement Peter is the ideal attorney. He is a problem solver, works well with people, is adept at compromise, and is comfortable in court. I would not hesitate to give him my complete recommendation.

Peter Bort has been our business lawyer and advisor for over Twenty years.
He has always been wise, a great advisor and always looked for a compromise rather than an adversarial confrontation.
I would greatly recommend Peter as one of the best attorneys I have encountered. Since I was employed at Morgan , Lewis& Bockius that is saying something!!!!
