Wonderful Advocate
Peter is a highly accomplished attorney with a lot of experience and knowledge in Construction Law. He has the grace to thoroughly understand the needs of the client and provide effective legal counsel. Peter was able to remove a very old lien from our house.

Great lawyer for a contractor matter
Peter is very professional and knowledgeable. We hired him to solve a matter with a contractor, that was demanding a payment for an unfinished job. ABC Flooring company owners were really nasty and disrespectful, but Peter was able to solve it without sue. He is always available and willing to solve any question or issue. I have been living in the US for 4 years and he is the first lawyer I known I would recommend to someone.

Valuable Advice
We hired Mr. Rowell for help with an addition to our residence. Thanks to the well drafted agreement, value-added protective mechanisms, and good advice, we were able to overcome the obstacles presented when the contractor disappeared and tried to steal our money. Ultimately thanks to Mr. Rowell's great advice and guidance we were able to conplete our project and be made whole, despite the unfortunate experience with the contractor. Would totally recommend Mr. Rowell.

Peter is an absolute rockstar of a construction attorney!
Peter is an outstanding board certified construction attorney that can manage the most complex and difficult claims. Additionally, Peter deeply cares about his clients and always goes the extra mile. I love referring clients to Peter because they always call me back and thank me for sending them his way. You would be hard pressed to find a better construction attorney in South Florida.

Highly Competent Lawyer
Peter is an outstanding lawyer and has saved my life several times over the past six years. He is quick to respond to our needs in operating our Electrical Contracting business. When we weren't able to get paid for a large electrical project, he was able to file the necessary lien documents and then a lawsuit to obtain our final payment. He was able to garnish our final payment while the general contractor continued to collect monies from other projects and ignoring our demands for payment. I now prefer to use Peter in all my lien processes rather than using a NTO company as he knows all the ins and outs which makes a daunting process for me turn into a seamless process. I don't know what I would do without him representing us. He is always quick to respond ; even when I call last minute to file a lien. Thanks Peter.
