Professional, detailed, and caring
There is always that saying, you get what you pay for, and the staff and Mr. Fear was worth every penny. Kayla was a pleasure to work with and kept me up to date on every step they took as well as being keen to detail on all the documents needed for my case. Mr. Fear sat with me and detailed everything on the schedules and brought to my attention anything that may draw questions or concerns and we dealt with them at his office before hand. When I arrived for my meeting of creditors, Mr. Fear was already there waiting for me. Sitting and watching about 5 others go before me, 4 out of the 5 were missing documents and were rescheduled; their lawyers seemed lost and never intervened. One lawyer and her client were rescheduled almost immediately for missing documents. My case was sent to confirmation almost immediately after I sat down, the trustee had no real questions for me and although she had a question about one particular document, Mr. Fear had it readily available on his tablet. This is the second time I had to use Mr. Fear for hardships in my life and I am glad that I was able to hire him again to help me get a fresh start. I hope to say that I would never need his services again, but if I did, I wouldn't look anywhere else.

I am extremely happy that I found Peter Fear
Let’s all be honest, bankruptcy is never anything anyone plans to have to go through. In my case, it was a personal and emotional low point in my life, and the last thing I wanted to do was ask anyone I knew personally for their advice. Bankruptcy is a very private matter that I am not proud I had to do, nothing I wished to share with my inner circle. I am extremely happy that I found Peter Fear and the Fear Law Group. Peter was a consummate professional, advising me on the process and guiding me through the steps. He answered every question quickly and clearly, which gave me the utmost confidence that my decisions were the correct ones to make. Furthermore, his staff was always very efficient and effective. A big thanks to them all for helping me get my financial life back on track!

Law Offices of Peter L. Fear Review
Peter Fear, Gabriel Waddell and the entire staff were very kind, courteous and professional. They listened to my situation and provided the best approach to take. They were very thorough with the paper work and comforting during court. Consequently, everything went very smooth.

Stop the stress and let the Fear Law team take over.
Thank you so much Mr. Fear and staff for all of your assistance with our case. Everything was explained to us and the lines of communication never failed. We were kept informed of what was going on and if we encountered issues we didn't understand, they were so patient and explained. They allowed us to make payments which were affordable. I'm so grateful that we found you and highly recommend the Fear Law team!

Professional, comfortable environment run by top shelf people
The bankruptcy process is daunting, overwhelming, and has the propensity to make you feel like life couldn't get much worse. Let's face it, no one goes into it because everything's going perfectly. From the moment we started this, though, Peter Fear and the staff there made us feel comfortable and removed the worry and confusion that we were expecting would overwhelm us. He explained all our options to us clearly in terms we could understand, not in some incomprehensible legalese. At every step, the professionalism they exuded made us absolutely certain that they were on our side and we couldn't be in better hands. If they had more stars to give, I would.

Professional, Experienced, Compassionate
Peter Fear recently represented my wife and I in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and we couldn't be happier with his knowledgeable and professional service. He took the time to explain everything to us. His staff was courteous and competent. He was compassionate and understanding of our situation -- unlike some attorneys and other professionals, he approached the practice of law from the perspective of wanting to help and care for his clients, not just a business that can be used to make money. We would highly recommend Peter Fear to anyone needing representation in bankruptcy matters.

"Peter has established a great reputation in the legal community. That reputation has been built from a great knowledge of the law in conjunction with wisdom and patience in walking people through how best to resolve their financial situation. You will not find a better attorney to help you through tough financial times."
Bankruptcy and debt Attorney | Dec 08
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I met Peter Fear as opposing counsel in a trial and he left a lasting impression: diligent, congenial, yet zealous in advocating for his client and their rights. Since that time I have sent dozens of clients to his office as he is very talented in bankruptcy matters. His specialization has become more and more focused, and for larger bankruptcy matters I note that my clients consistently return with enthusiastic reports about Peter's straight-forward, intelligent and careful look at not only the obvious options, but some of the nuances that many other practitioners would likely miss. I know of (and in some matters have worked with) the top 5 bankruptcy attorneys in Fresno, and Peter is undoubtedly my favorite of these 5."

"Peter is quite simply the foremost authority on bankruptcy I know. In addition to that, Peter is a great resource for fellow attorneys not only for his knowledge of the law, but for his savvy marketing tactics. I highly respect and admire Peter, and suggest him for anyone looking into bankruptcy relief."
