When I first met with him he was impressive and led me to believe that he would be focused on my case. However, after several months I realized that his statements to me during our initial meeting were just a sales pitch and that his actual services were very poor. When I spoke to him during the case it was clear that he did not know the facts of my case and that he was trying to "fake" as though he did, his work product was poor and he misled me about what actually occurred in Court. I ended up having to retain new counsel. Whatever you do, don't hire this guy!!!!!

I was not a particularly easy client as I live out of state and am skeptical of attorney's in general let alone ones I did not get to meet personally. Steven Peskind and Edward Milas are smart, were engaging and they were thorough but most importantly they won my case through winning a subject matter jurisdiction judgment in my favor.

I had the pleasure or working with both Steve and Mollie Peskind and I would highly recommend this family based law firm. They are superior to any other firm. I, unfortunately, had negative experiences with previous law firms and wish I had known about Peskind Law Firm sooner. You will not be let down. My husband and I are both professionals and were extremely impressed by, not only Steve and Mollie Peskind, but their entire team.
Other law firms- I encourage you to learn from this exceptional team and model them. Step back, watch and learn. In my field of work, I have a moral, ethical and legal obligation to my patients. I believe the same should apply in your field. Peskind Law Firm does it right. A very well oiled machine. Beyond professional.
Clients- You will not be let down. You are not a number here. Your calls and emails will not be ignored. Your questions will not go unanswered. You will not be told that your attorney "is in a trial and very busy," each and every time you call. No games here. You never get the run around. Steve and Mollie Peskind personally responded to my emails and calls very promptly. Never did a day go by where I was ignored. They take a collaborative approach w the client and work with you to have a positive outcome. Professionalism, respect, honest work, building rapport w the client is the goal with this firm. This firm takes a team approach and everthing is very streamlined. The communication between the secretarial staff, attorneys and clients is clear and effective. These attorneys are thorough and come prepared to court. It is evident in their work.
I previously paid thousands and thousands of dollars for poor quality work and poor communication. Peskind Law Firm restored my faith in the legal system. I am beyond impressed. The level of expertise, work ethic and passion for what they do is extraordinary here. No other firm compares. It will be evident in your first meeting and they will continue to impress you until your case is complete. I will continue to recommend them and refer potential clients.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
I worked for Steve Peskind for 2 years as a law clerk while in law school. He has been the single most influential person in my development as a lawyer. Much of my own law practice is patterned after the many things he taught me. Steve is a very smart and accomplished lawyer who treats his clients with the utmost respect and compassion. Prospective clients would be very wise in retaining Steve Peskind as their lawyer.
