Getting divorced was a very scary and confusing time for me. Peter was compassionate, caring and kind. I had no idea where to start or how to get this done. Peter walked me through every step of the process and made it as easy as possible. He was always available to take my calls and answer my questions. I really dont know what I would have done without him. I would recommend Peter to anyone that is in a difficult situation and needs help.

Peter was unable to take my case because of a conflict. Even though he did not represent me, he is always willing to take my calls and answer questions about my case. He is clearly an expert in the field.
