Peter's your man
Peter answered my question on Avvo right away. I immediately knew he was the right man to fit my needs. Soon after our online conversation, I met with Peter in his office and within days of that meeting my whole life changed for the best and Peter was able to solve my legal matter. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone having a legal issue.

Dewhirst review
I have personally and professional known Pete for over 10 years. I utilize his legal skills for my own investment real estate , and refer him to clients , that request a timely & responsive Attorney. If you need an attorney who "cuts to the chase" and assists in getting the deal done, Pete's your man !

I always can count on Pete
I've worked with Peter Dewhirst for the past 8 years with personal needs (real estate transactions, will preparation, legal advice) as well as business needs (business formation, contract creation, contract review, legal advice). He is quick to respond to my questions, thorough in the feedback he provides and, most-importantly, relays the information to me in a way that I comprehend it.
