Attorney Peter Mavrick has represented me and my business in several business litigation cases. His work and results were always excellent. He successfully defended two different lawsuits against my business. In a third case, he successfully collected the full amount of a judgment in my favor. Despite the difficulty of some of the cases, Mr. Mavrick was tenacious in representing my interests and in getting a superb result. Mr. Mavrick is an excellent business litigation lawyer. I strongly recommend the Mavrick Law Firm

Reliable, honest, dedicated - highly recommended!
Peter is an EXCEPTIONAL attorney. Peter represented my company in a litigation battle and final settlement agreement, successfully prevailing over a manipulative defense team. I cannot say enough about Peter and his team, in particular Peter's dedication, attention to detail, accessibility, and all-around thoroughness in his commitment and work. With Peter, rest assured you are receiving the best Florida has to offer!

Got the job done right
Peter Mavrick represented me regarding a threatened lawsuit over a non-compete agreement. He has been a strong advocate for me and is clearly in touch with employment law. An unnecessary lawsuit was avoided. I recommend Mr. Mavrick as a no-nonsense non-compete attorney who will get the job done right.

Great experience
Peter Mavrick is a top ranked restrictive covenant lawyer. I researched several Florida lawyers before deciding on Peter. He is the best of the best. Very detail oriented and extremely knowledgeable. I am so grateful we decided to hire him before signing a contract. He is easy to work with and I trust him. I would advise any medical professional to have him look at your contract before signing. For a lawyer of his caliber his prices are very fair.

Unpaid overtime
I was being sue for unpaid overtime by an employee of a tenant that rented my bakery when I was't using it. The lawyer was going after deeper pockets. Mr Mavrick won the case with a 25 minute deliberation. He clearly "out-lawyered" the plantiff's attorney. Mr Mavrick was extremely thorough is his preparation for the case., which had many details. Of course that does result in higher than expected fees. However, the important thing was wining the case which he did.

A lawyer you can count on
Attorney Peyer T. Maverick was referred to me by a trusted colleague. I must say that I don't just take anyone's word as gospel. I hired Attorney Maverick and I was thoroughly impressed (admittedly not an easy feat) with his work ethic, drive and competivenes to be a winner. He made me feel that he was committed to my case prevailing while also being honest and straightforward with any concerns. Without hesitation, I would hire him again.

GREAT ATTORNEY
Mr. Mavrick did an excellent job by defending our business from litigation threats made by a competitor. Because we threatened a valid counterclaim, the competitor left us alone to run our business without interference. We highly recommend Mr. Mavrick.

EXCELLENT LAWYER
Mr. Mavrick reviewed my severance package and found key statements that would have been detrimental to my career. He helped me make adjustments to it to protect me, which my ex-employer agreed to.

EXCELLENT LAWYER
Mr. Mavrick did an excellent job in handling a business negotiation because unnecessary litigation was avoided, he achieved the result needed, and the business relationship remained amicable for the future. I highly recommend him.

GREAT LAWYER FOR BUSINESS ADVICE AND DEFENSE
Our corporation hired Mr. Mavrick to defend us against litigation initiated by a former employee. He did an excellent job and we prevailed. The case was stressful to the corporate officers. Mr. Mavrick prepared and executed a good case strategy.

Good lawyer for difficult case
Attorney Peter Mavrick represented me in a difficult case, and he did a good job. Other lawyers refused to take the case because of the difficulty in case facts. He helped me even when it was difficult and other lawyers had quit.
