This review is from a person who hired this attorney.
| Hired Attorney
Dr. Ping Wang
Peter is the most outstanding, compassionate and knowledgeable attorney I've ever worked with, during my 10 years battle with my employer. When no lawyer in town would take my case, Peter stood up for me, and fought for me, with immense courage, moral high ground, discipline and knowledge to fight the most powerful and aggressive institution and law firm in town. And we won within 3 months. Not only did I avoid a catastrophe of losing my job and financial ruin, but Peter helped me to return to my position with glory and dignity. I am immensely grateful and highly recommend this attorney to anyone who needs help to fight for justice.
