Thanks for all your help!
We were dealing with a difficult tenant and needed to evict. Peter helped us through the whole process. He was patient and knowledgeable, and very professional. Thanks Peter!

Great job by Mr. Balogh
I struggled with a partnership problem concerning real property in a foreign country. Mr. Balogh within one week prepared and filed a partition action to sell the property, filed it with the court and served it on my partners and settled the case! A truly remarkable effort and amazing result.

Nuisance neighbor claim
Peter was exceptional from beginning to end. Always kept us informed of developemts throughout the duration of the case in a timely manner, and made himself avaialble at times that were flexible with our hectic schedule; usually nights and occasional weekends. He was open to our input and involvement and very easy to work with. I would highly recommend his services.

Brilliant, dedicated, straight shooter, client-friendly who I trust!
I've hired Peter on many occasions... from trust, and estate planning, lease agreements, conflict resolution and Incorporation. I find him to have a common sense approach. You can always count on him to be a straight shooter and trust that he will seek the best possible resolution for the situation at hand. Peter is very community oriented and is sensitive to client's budget. I have to say he has a brilliant mind and has yet ceased to amaze me. There is also a trust factor that Peter has with me. I know I can trust the hours that I'm billed, without hesitation. Over the years of working with Peter, I have witnessed his dedication and genuine concern for whatever situation I present to him. He has great realistic feedback and I appreciate him dearly. My successful business is due in part to Peter's excellent advice and guidance. I highly recommend his services.

Review for Peter Balogh, Attorney
I am a small business owner in my 14th year. Through the years, Peter has been my trusted advisor to think through various issues that have enabled me to thrive in my business. He has also been influential in helping establish trusts on a personal level. I highly recommend Peter for his responsiveness, knowledge, and practical nature. He's also a great guy!

My satisfaction
To many, it is an oxymoron to link lawyers with integrity. And while TV comedians have inpaled lawyers for years, Peter Balogh is an exception to the rule. He has worked on several issues for me over the years and has shown everybody involved his knowledge, his honesty, his concern, his fairness----his integrity. Glad to know if I ever need his advice or assistance, that he will be there for me.

Sharp, Highly Experienced, Client-Friendly Attorney with Good Support Staff
Mr. Balogh handles our family estate planning, real estate matters, elder care issues, and a broad range of business matters, including LLC & corporation formations, employee agreements, and independent contractor agreements. He is a straight-talking, down-to-earth attorney with a lot of experience. He provides advise and counseling freely and is easy to contact, arrange meetings with, and work with. He is a well-known successful litigator which gives us a sense of security although we have not needed his in-court services to date. We have worked with Mr. Balogh for 3+ years exclusively. He does a good job of keeping us well-informed, in compliance, and out of court. He maintains all of our corporate records and is our service of process point. His office is conveniently located with free street parking in front.

Toxic Mold Case
Peter was very professional, worked on a risky case on a contigency basis and was able to get me a fair settlement wihile others lawyes wanted to work only on class action suits or get paid by the hour for my case; he took the risk and was always very confident in his work.

Mr. Peter Leslie Balogh
Have been working with Mr. Peter for many, many years. Great guy! Great person and a great attorney. Coming from a family in Brazil of 10 attorney's, including both of my parents and sister, I do know 100% how to differentiate an ok attorney and a great attorney. Would recommend Mr. Peter to anyone.
