Excellent Attorney Peter Contreras
Mr. Contreras was a great choice to represent us for our class action lawsuit. He was very professional, knowledgeable & trustworthy. He also had great communication from the beginning of our case until the settlement was reached. I would definitely use Contreras Law again in the future as well as recommend him to others!

Nice lawyer and nice job!
Peter is a very good lawyer and very knowledgable. I hired him as my lawyer for dealing with my unemployment case and he got the settlement agreement done in two months. He always responded very quickly to answer my questions about my case. I highly recommend him if someone needs his services.

exceptional service
I was recently represented by Mr. Contreras. If you ever need legal representation this is the man you need. He was very easy to get in touch with and was able and very willing to explain legal terms and procedures to me so I understood exactly what was being discussed. The outcome of the case was very favorable due to his outstanding work.

Excellent experience
Peter was highly communicative and clear in his communications. Many people say their number one complaint they have when working with an attorney is feeling left in the dark and talked down to, you will not feel that way with this attorney. He set reasonable expectations, explaining the timeline and the process clearly.

Trustworthy Counsel
I have worked with Peter on several cases including family and estate issues, and multiple contract dispute cases. He has been fantastic to deal with and has been happy to spend even more time and effort than I asked, to help bring both simple and complex legal issues to satisfactory conclusion. Peter is my go-to guy, and his friendly and professional attitude are exceeded only by his appetite for efficient, quality work.
