If you are looking for a knowledgeable attorney with the know how and tanasity to go to work for you...he's your guy. From my first meeting with Peter I feel comfortable and like I had a partner guiding me through the scary world of divorce. I had a child to consider and looking out for his best interest was my ultimate desire. Peter never backed down, was responsive, educated and I felt like I was his only client. Never once did I feel like I was being pushed aside, that my case didn't matter or he wasn't fighting for me. It's a scary process and never once did I doubt Peter, the process or the outcome. He's an amazing attorney and I would recommend him time and time again.

Peter was absolutely amazing! He is involved from the beginning to the end, ensuring that I understood the entire process through every step of the CPS nightmare. I could not have asked for anyone better to walk me through this process with the compassion and forthright honesty about everything that was going to happen and what I needed to accomplish. In my opinion, there is not a better attorney out there when dealing with the system. Peter has perspective not only from the side of defending the parent(s), but from the side of defending children as well, which makes him uniquely suited for successful representation. I couldn't have made it without him and would send anyone/everyone his way!!

Peter is one amazing attorney and individual. He was honest from the very beginning. He is prompt and caring. I would send an email at 9:30pm and he would respond right away. He isn't in it for the money. He would rather save his client money than prolong things. I love that he reads his own emails and also is the one to respond. I asked him to make a call in an email and that call was made within 10 min. I feel the end result of our custody was fair for us and the other party. He made sure to let us know if what we were asking for was reasonable or not. He is not misleading in his behavior. I would highly recommend Peter!!!! Absolutely loved having him as our attorney.

I hired Peter due to the ratings on avvo based on what most of his client reviews said. I don't think I could ever have found someone so well suited for my divorce case as Peter. What I believed it would be, was a simple, straight forward, agreed upon divorce. I couldn't have been more stunned as what it turned out to be, I still can't, but I'm divorced as of last Friday.
My ex husband, who is a retired lawyer himself, who filed against me, decided to make his divorce from me a literal bloodbath. And he did, unfortunately. From the day Peter became my lawyer for our divorce, which was in May/2015, and ended in 1/2016. The path my husband and his attorney took was an unexpected living
My now ex husband accused me of lying to the court as his first course. Then proceeded to escalate it to the point of 3 lawsuits, one filed against him by the DA with 2 felony charges and 2 misdemeanor charges of domestic abuse against me, one lawsuit filed by me in Court for an order of protection (OOP) against him which was given, a restraining order against his mistress by me, which was granted, and all being in another state. Including our divorce case.
Peter had me as a client with 4 cases in 2 different states. Needless to say I was in another state calling Peter who is in Michigan, and he dealt with me and the entire outrageous situation. Me, who at that point was in a hysterical state because I had been assaulted by my now ex husband, (who at that time was still my husband) and his mistress who I didn't even know existed until that night, in my second home, in another state.
This divorce nightmare kept on. My now ex husbands divorce lawyer withdrew from the case (can't imagine why) and then he hired someone exactly as nasty and unethical as my now ex husband is. They still came after me and Peter with a vengeance. And Peter, Never. Batted. An eye. Not once, he remained professional, courteous, determined, focused, and knowledgeable throughout.
We had one mediation session which was required by the court. Because of my OOP, and Peter enforcing this order, even though it was from another state. I never had to see or speak to either my husband or his lawyer, the mediator (wonderful man) went back and forth between rooms.
Because MIchigan is a no fault state everything is usually split 50/50. But if you can show cause, meaning one party is more responsible for the divorce then the other party that can change the split. Peter did, because during the divorce we learned my now ex husband was committing adultery, that cost my husband almost 10 percent of the 50/50. I agreed to a 58/42 split, which was a significant amount of money for me to gain, and my ex husband to lose.
Any other lawyer would have probably withdrawn from this case, and I wouldn't blame them either.
Just to not have to deal with my ex husband or his lawyer because they took this divorce to absurdity, or probably would have charged me triple, and be glad to finally be rid of me.
But, not Peter. I know I will have a lifelong connection to him, and am so thankful and grateful to him. I had barely smiled since May, I have been to hell and back during this divorce.
But, I haven't stopped smiling since Friday. I have started my new life, and won't look back with any sadness or regrets, and thank Peter both professionally and personally for helping me to get to this point in my life. I am forever grateful.

I have worked with Peter on 3 separate occasions in the last 4 years regarding custody of my child. He has been nothing short of amazing in aiding me through the process. He is professional, compassionate, and very knowledgeable. I appreciated that he was always available for any questions or meetings at a moments notice. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone, truly a great man.

Peter is amazing. We got hit with a motion that would have us doing most of the transportation and have us miss out on holidays. Instead, we got a fair amount of travel, holidays and school breaks. He was honest about being fair, always polite even with the other counsel was rude (Anne E. Lewis, don't hire her!) and didn't try to drive up the bill with unnecessary communication. He also kept us out of court and was able to negotiate through email. We will hire him again if need be.

After doing some extensive research of attorneys in my area, I hired Peter to handle my divorce. To sum it up....Amazing. He worked very hard for me and the outcome was to my liking. He knows the laws and the way he handles himself is very professional. I would highly recommend Peter in any divorce case. His fees are very reasonable and fair. He will keep you informed, return your emails and phone calls in a timely matter, and not leave you hanging out there wondering what's happening. Divorce is an ugly and emotional time in someones life I don't care who you are, and Peter not only helped me through it but represented me in a very professional manner. Top Notch!

I am not sure how Peter had this good of ratings. I discussed my case with Peter and he promised me the world. On my first hearing date he didn't show up and sent a substitute attorney. Due to some technical issues, the date got moved to next week. He had not read the opposing party's pleadings and was completely unprepared to where judgement went totally against me.
Then I saw that taking phone calls and answering emails became less and less. At that point, I decided to hire another attorney that delivered. Peter refunded the retainer but took a good chunk out with unreasonable charges. At that point I was done with him so I just moved forward.
