Review Peter Liss

  • Peter Liss: Well-regarded, tenacious and very effective!

    I was arrested for DUI. Peter won my DMV hearing, successfully getting DMV to set aside the suspension. I've been told it's very rare to win DMV hearings and I believe it. This was also huge as I depend on driving for work. Pursuant to the DMV decision he was able to argue for a plea deal down to a "wet reckless." This was another major win since my fine was reduced by about $1,000, my probation period was reduced from 5 years to 3 years, and my license was left in good standing. He communicated very clearly and knowledgeably with me, all the time letting me know where my case stood. He's had my back through the entire process. If you need a good lawyer who can actually make a difference for you instead of just taking your money, Peter Liss is the man. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat, but I intend to stay out of trouble!

    I first contacted Peter Liss after reading many of his great reviews. Being stuck in a difficult situation, I felt that along with his impressive credentials, he was best suited in helping me with my case. And I wasn't wrong! From the start, Peter was very realistic about what the outcome of my case may be with the cards being stacked against me. But, with Peter I received the best possible outcome and could not be more thrilled! Not only that, but with Peter he resolved my situation quickly, efficiently, and confidently while walking me through and coaching me through the entire process. I am convinced that if I had chosen anyone else to handle my case I would still be stuck in a difficult situation. For that reason, I am extremely thankful that I found Peter Liss!

    Peter Liss is an amazing lawyer! My original lawyer passed away and I wanted representation for my final hearing and dismissal after taking PC1000. While my situation was very unusual, Peter did not hesitate to take my case and appear at my dissmal hearing. In addition to making sure my case was dismissed, he requested that my initial charge be reduced to a misdemeanor as well as having the arrest record sealed and destroyed. All of which the judge did not want to grant because it was "getting dismissed anyways". I wanted these extra steps taken so it could not hinder my future job applications (as some background tests will show arrests). Peter reasoned with the judge and ensured that we got what we wanted. He listened to what I wanted as well as making further suggestions to benefit my future. I would reccommend Peter to any prospectee, as he is respectful, diligent, and cares about each case.

    I was facing a DUI felony car accident with bodily injury in the Vista Court System and was scared beyond belief. I had no record. First time I had ever been in trouble. Peter was very resourceful and practical and truly did his best to ease me through the process.

    The outcome was great. My case got reduced to a DUI misdemeanor. Bodily injury was dropped from the charge. I had to serve no additional jail time. 3 months of DUI classes and a one month license suspension with 5 months of license restriction pales in comparison to the week long ankle bracelet and 1 year license suspension and who knows whatever doom I thought I was facing.

    Peter does this everyday. It's natural to him. He will give you the honest facts. I never doubted he would handle my case with professionalism and empathy and I am very grateful that he was able to get my charges reduced.
    Go with Peter. He'll handle it!

  • My family and I owe my freedom to Peter Liss.

    I'm a father and husband supporting our special needs son and wife with breast cancer. I also have a prior robbery. So when I was arrested I needed someone who believed in me; was compassionate about my family; and could advocate zealously.

    Peter Liss fit the bill. He knew my case inside and out. He had judges yelling at the DA that the case was crap. Peter had command of the facts and the law. He and his clerk, Erika, always took my calls, responded to my emails, and genuinely cared for me.

    When probation recommended 6 years in prison I was devastated. However, I am home tonight because of Peter. I am holding my son in my arms because of Peter. I am supporting my wife because of Peter. If it were not for Peter; my family would be displaced.

    If you love your family and value your freedom- the choice is simple.- don't settle for less, hire Peter Liss!!

    We hired Peter to represent us in court and with the DMV. Peter was recommended to us by a very close friend. Peter took over our case and acted 100% as our advocate, keeping us closely informed along the way. Thanks to Peter, our case was settled with the best possible results considering the circumstances. We strongly recommend Peter and are very happy we found him.

    It was a blessing to meet Peter and have him work on my case. I was arrested for DUI but through his great work, he was able to lower it to a Wet Reckless. This was my first offense so I relied on him greatly to walk me through the process. He was kind and patient and made sure that I was informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend Peter for your legal matters.

  • Does Not Keep Their Word, Find A Different Lawyer

    Posted by Kevin

    I was visiting california in the fall of 2013. Was arrested and charged with a dwi. Was wrongly accused and after hiring peter as my lawyer to get this fixed everything seemed okay at first. Was never contacted before he pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless driving. Then he never contacted me after the fact. I actually had to call him when DMV mail started showing up at my home in virginia. We had agreed in person at his office that this WOULD NOT affect my driving record or the dmv record. Now 2 and a half years later im getting screwed on the opposite end of the country for something that was supposed to be taken care of like peter had said. He doesnt keep his word or do what he said he would do. Seek other law firms and lawyers if you are needing a attorney. Spend a little extra money to be represented by someone who actually cares about the outcome of your case or charges. Dont make the mistake I did and hire Peter Michael Liss.

    Peter Michael Liss’s response: “Kevin- In 2013, I got you a dry reckless with all DUI charges dismissed which is in the top 1% of all DUI case results. I am sorry you are disappointed. I cannot control what Virginia DMV does but I can help understand their actions and do whatever I can to assist you. I communicate everything I do with clients and continue do so well after a case is closed. I am still willing to help you. Please contact me for further assistance.”

    I was arrested based on an alleged comment during an argument with my girlfriend where she called 911 out of anger, not fear. The problem is that I was arrested with felony probably cause (PC422). I have never been arrested in my life and ended up spending the night in jail with $50K in bail. This whole thing was crazy and thanks to Peter I finally got some peace of mind. He wrote a letter to the DA and got the case rejected before any charges were filed. Seeing the justice system from the inside was something I thought I would never do, but thank God for people like Peter Liss. He is on par or cheaper than most attorney's but probably in the top 1 or 2% in my opinion. Thank you Peter!
