handled car accident case with skill
Peter helped me for a car accident in which I was hurt. He was honest and straight forward in the way he handled my case. Even though, the insurance company put up road blocks because of my previous injury, Peter helped me in obtaining a nice settlement.

Excellent Personal Injury Attorney
Mr. Scherr handled a wrongful death case resulting from my mother's untimely death caused by the negligence of multiple corporate defendants. His handleing of the case was professional as he regulartly communicated with me and my family, and he resolved the case with sensitivity. I would highly recommend Mr. Scherr to anyone with a personal injury or wrongful death case.
