Excellent Attorney
Mr. Sartes is an extremely skilled and I highly recommend him. He and his staff kept my husband and I informed and explained all of our options every step of the way. He went way above and beyond to help us and we are so grateful. I have no doubt he was the best possible attorney we could have hired and will continue to use him in the future if needed.

In my experience, the use of an attorney has always carried a negative situation. Mr Sartes was able to get me the most favorable outcome that I could have ever expected. He was always available to discuss the case and was very well versed on the explanations.

Highly Respected Attorney.
Mr. Sartes was very knowledgeable in his field, and took the time to make sure I both understood what was going on, and then to keep me informed on the progress of the issue. I will both recommend and continue to use his services when needed.

"I have known Peter Sartes both personally and professionally for many years. He is among the most competent, diligent, and effective trial attorneys I know. I had occasion to assist Peter in connection with an interstate patent infringement litigation matter, and received invaluable assistance from him in a pro bono federal criminal law matter I was handling. I heartily endorse his services without reservation."

"I highly endorse this lawyer. Moreover, I feel very comfortable in saying that Peter's 10 Rating on Avvo and AV (Preeminent) Highest Rating on Martindale.com, do not even scratch the surface of being indicative of Peter’s true talents, legal and litigation smarts, and his overall effectiveness as a lawyer. Peter loves the law and he has a deep rooted drive and need to win. God forbid, if any close family member of mine were in significant criminal related trouble; my first recommendation would be for them to call Peter, and to do so as quickly as possible!"
