The Best Attorney at Law
Talk about a great attorney, Peter Ordower is the best attorney that I have met in my entire 32-year professional life. He handled my case within 48 hours and successfully resolved the issue that was presented to him. He is professional, patient, communicates well and has great knowledge. I recommend Peter Ordower without any reservation.

Phenomenal lawyer
Peter Ordowers professionalism and integrity are beyond reproach , Peter Ordower is one of the most skilled and detailed lawyers I have ever worked with, I thought it to be a very difficult case to win, but Mr Ordower did in fact Vacate a Ex-pate Judgment against me and did so by taking the time necessary to research the case in detail ,crafted brilliant motions and cited case law which won the case. I give my highest rating and my deepest respect for Peter, he is truly a client’s best advocate, genuine and a gentlemen. My sincerest thanks.

Experienced and Trustworthy Lawyer
Peter Ordower is an outstanding lawyer. He patiently listened and carefully reviewed the facts of my lawsuit to help me win the case against the other party involved. Peter consulted with me with through out the entire process and made sure that i understood and was aware of the action he was going to take in order to fight the lawsuit against me. Make a long story short Peter won the case for me and got the other party to pay for me legal bills and negotiated with the insurance party involved to get me 40% more of the payout. I have recommended many friends to Peter and they have been please working with him too.

Peter's initial review of the case was proven to be right-on when he won our case at trial--which he was very well prepared for. Thanks, Peter.
