Christian was very motivated to help me and always looked at the issue with different angles. He is a very smart and out-going man and very polite and friendly. He made me feel comfortable in knowing I was in good hands. He stayed opptimistic but realistic at the same time and it was great working with him.

First, if you are in court for any reason you need to hire a lawyer. Like it or not, they know the system and are your only chance for your best outcome. The previous two sentences are easily the best advice you will get today. The court system, for any infraction at all, is a maze that does not reward the unprepared.
I am here to recommend Christian R. Peterson specifically. I interviewed five lawyers before I hired him. He is smart, honest, professional, hardworking, personable, and has experience prosecuting and defending. He knows the law and the court system and will explain it to you along with your options and then work to achieve the best outcome for you.
In my entire life, I have had the need for just one lawyer and I am happy I hired Christian for guidance. I will now use him for future work in business, real estate, and estate planning as well.
Hope this helps someone.

In a family crises that involves criminal justice, it's important to have a trusted legal guide through the unfamiliar territory. Christian became that for my family. He was knowledgable & experienced; kind & compassionate. We recommend Christian even though he wears crazy socks.

If you're looking for a tough criminal defense lawyer who knows exactly what to do when you need it most - call Christian. Reasonable rates, easy to get a hold of, and experienced. I can offer no better praise than I refer my own clients to him when they need a criminal defense lawyer.
