This gentleman was efficient, he knew what he was doing, and as a result of his hard work and smarts, was able to get a DV 2 charge, dropped to a DV1 charge, with only probation in the end.
I truly feel if I had no representation the max sentence could have quite possibly been served. I would recommend this attorney to my closest friend, and I will.

The highest praises you can give an attorney is that they know your case thoroughly, were well prepared, and fought vigorously. Peter excelled in all 3 aspects. While every case is unique, we won my case because he embodied these principals. So much so that at conclusion I asked him how I could leave a review.
I would highly recommend Peter. He did an outstanding job!

Peter did an excellent job handling my case. He made sure I had a fair resolution and never settled for anything less. Peter was able to successfully negotiate a plea bargain for me that kept a OWVI of my record. He was very responsive and willing to communicate in person, over the phone and through email. I would highly recommend Peter, he is a very knowledgeable individual who cares about his clients.
