Business Owner
I have used both Charles and Jeff for several years for both real estate closings and business litigation. Very rarely will you find legal counsel that will represent you with such passion and commitment to their clients. Their expertise and integrity is impeccable and I would highly recommend them.

Highly Recommended Attorney. Knowledgeable, Reliable.
I have used Mr. Peil for a couple of legal issues regarding stupid mistakes i've made in the past, and he has not let me down once. Very knowledgeable, very punctual, and always there when I need him. I highly recommend using Mr. Peil's services, and I will absolutely be coming back to him, should I need any legal help or advice in the future.

NFA Trust work
I contacted Mr. Peil about setting up a NFA firearms trust. He was very responsive, knowledgeable and had a very fast turn around time. I just received my first approval from the BATFE and had no trouble using the trust documents he created for me. I would highly recommend anyone interested in establishing such a trust to contact Mr. Peil.

Very Knowledgeable, Energetic, Very Approachable, Proactive
Mr. Peil is very knowledgeable about the law, and really goes above and beyond by being creative and energetic, working to get the best result possible. He responds quickly to emails and returns calls quickly as well. I would highly recommend him.

NFA TRUST
In regards to forming a NFA trust, there is no other name that I would trust besides Mr. Peil. He provides an excellent service at a rate that enables anyone to gain the protection of a trust without being financially burdened. He is both knowledgeable and personable making the experience pleasant. I was able to have my trust in hand within 24 hrs of my returning required information. Mr. Peil avails himself to questions before, during and after the process, and promptly returns emails and missed calls. While there are services online offering template trusts at a cheaper rate, the small additional cost of having a competent attorney complete a personalized service is well worth the peace of mind it provides. I am very pleased with my experience from my first contact to the email I exchanged just yesterday regarding a concern that arose. Bottom line I not only would recommend Mr. Peil to a friend, but I wold insist on it! 5 Stars A + or AAA however you measure service Mr. Peil is on top.

Fantastic source for firearms knowledge
I had Jeff write my NFA Trust. The whole experience was fantastic. He gave me an amazing product that's 10x better than anything these trust mills could churn out, and was incredibly cheap. Money well spent.
