I have known Peter for 30 years. He is by far the most honest and ethical attorney I have ever known. But beyond that, he is very knowledgeable in the area of personal injury, wills and trusts, business litigation and admiralty law. Peter takes great pride in the work he does. He is methodical and wastes very little time and money. I have personally hired Peter on three occasions to represent me in legal matters - that is how confident I am in his abilities. I hold Peter in the highest regard. I have recommended him in the past to many people and never have I heard any negative feed-back. I too can attest to his excellent work, fair pricing and knowledge of the law.

Peter saved me a lot of headache
Peter Pfund has been my family’s attorney for over 37 years. I had a case that should have never even seen the light of day. The case a was 20 year old case! Yes you read that correct 20 years! You can only imagine how complicated this made the entire situation. Peter was able to not only navigate through this complicated case but got the entire case resolved. Peter has done excellent work with both of my parents and myself. Any legal questions or issues I call Peter first. If I want a second opinion it is merely to see if they know what Peter knows. I highly suggest if have a legal matter that you contact Peter and at least find out what he has to say. His analysis and expertise is accurate and valuable.

Superb attorney
Peter Pfund has been our attorney for over 25 years. He is a very professional and thorough attorney as well as a marvelous individual. He has completed and updated our Trust and Will thoroughly, successfully settled vehicle personal injury suffered by my wife, accomplished my wife's legal name change as well as several other legal matters through the years. I wholeheartedly and sincerely recommend Peter's professional services. My wife agrees no other attorney will do.

Attorney you can trust
We had Peter do our Trust and Will last year and I could not have asked for a more honest , thorough person to handle such an important job! He explained everything to us ahead of time and was clear on what our options were.He made sure he followed our requests to the T. We felt very confident in his work and trusted him completely to guide us. I would highly recommend him and we have used him for some other legal matters , and gone to him for recommendations. If he can't do the job for you , he would definately refer you as well, which is great to know he has his clients best interest in mind and truly cares about you.

Great Attorney!
I'm so happy I hired Peter for my personal injury case. He was very knowledgeable and professional. I was confident that Peter was always looking out for my best interest. I've since used Peter for other issues that have come up since we first connected 7 years ago. Couldn't have asked for a better attorney - Thank you Peter!

Lawfirm with Integrity.
Peter Pfund is a lawyer with integrity who I've worked with for almost 40 years. This law firm handled a variety of my civil issues during this period. The last case involved my identity being stolen and credit card accounts being opened. Mr. Pfund handled my case with the desired outcome of me not being responsible for any of the debts. The firms is trust worthy and I highly recommend all confidential services offered.

We were recommended to Peter and Peter took my Dad’s case right away. He was professional and gave honest answers and advice. He is not a pushy Lawyer and tries to have the client in the best interest. He is timely in responding and will call and update regularly.
