There are many criminal attorneys out there you can choose from, but Peter is one of the best attorneys that you should consider to work with and rely on. Since English is not my native language, I worried my communication with Peter would be a problem for my case. But Peter was very patient and putting extra effort to get things together. With his hard work, my case was not only dismissed but also he helped me to put a RO on the aggressor successfully. I am extremely satisfied with the result. Thanks Peter!

I have known Mr. Fitzpatrick for many years. Before there was a Domestic Partnership registry, Mr. Fitzpatrick assisted me and my spouse in sifting through the legal requirements to be sure we were protected as best we could be, since at that time there were no government protections. His sensitivity to our needs and his excellent research made us both feel assured that if something should happen to either of us, we would have the protections we would need to maintain our household and to care for each other, in sickness and in health!

Peter walked me through the maze of court bureaucracy and uncooperative police response to successfully obtain a 3 year restraining order against a violent homeless person whom the police refused to arrest "until there is blood or broken bones." At the hearing Peter successfully argued against a legal technicality that would have required a repeat of the entire intricate process of serving proper notice on a homeless peson. Thank you Peter.
