Knowleagable/Personable Attorney
Pete Clancy is an Outstanding Attorney. I was involved in a motor vehicle accident with soft tissue injuries to my back and as we all know those are the hardest cases for the victim to come out on top. I did come out on top and that was because Pete Clancy believed in me, stood by me, fought for me and was honest with me when I needed him to be. His law firm was very prompt with paperwork and very helpful with any questions. I recommend Pete Clancy and his law firm to anyone who wants a very knowledgeable but yet very personable and honest attorney

Great Personal Injury Attorney
Pete worked on my case which involved a serious pedestrian-vehicle accident where I was the injured pedestrian. Pete is very knowledgeable and always promptly addressed my questions, concerns, and upset complaints with very clear explanations and with empathy. He was upfront with his fees from the beginning, which were reasonable and proved to be well spent, as I am very satisfied with the resolution of my case. Pete also resolved my case within a very reasonable time frame. As an added bonus, Pete is a very personable and likeable attorney to work with. I would definitely recommend him.

very dependable lawyer
Before we had Pete as our family lawyer, things between my husband and his ex-wife had been full of tension which also caused a lot of stress in our marriage. After talking to Pete on the phone, for the first time, my husband and I decided to fire our lawyer at that time and hire Pete which we could have done a long time ago. Pete takes his job very seriously and with integrity. Since we had him as our lawyer, things have been tension free between my husband and his ex-wife and we can't thank Pete enough for that. We recommended Pete to my cousin but sadly, Pete doesn't handle cases in Stockton. Pete would have been the right lawyer for my cousin who after 6 years learned that his divorced wasn't finalized yet. Pete is also very transparent about where your money goes, and in our case, he kept reminding us about our remaining retainer's fee. With Pete, we felt like we're his extended family.

Excellent DV attorney!
Little did I know when I talked to Pete the first time to get advice on how to slowly extricate myself from a relationship with an alcoholic, that I would be running out of the house with my daughter in my arms the following week. Pete helped me get through the initial crisis by guiding me through the necessary paperwork for my restraining order to protect both myself and my daughter. I was impressed by the way he was able to quickly digest and boil down a tremendous amount of potential evidence into a cohesive and concise case for the court. Pete was calm and reassuring through a difficult nearly year long court battle, which to my great relief, resulted in a successful outcome. Pete was honest and professional throughout and really cared about what happened to me and my daughter. I can't recommend him more highly.

Trustworthy Attorney
After my husband's car accident, we were getting the run around from the insurance company, I contacted Mr. Clancy out of sheer fustration with the insurance company. My Clancy, was professional and very knowledgeable about cases involving Insurance Companies, he really worked with us to get the documents needed for them, he was patient and took the time to explain why we needed to submit these documents, he really stood up to the insurance company when they tried to push us around. In the end I was so thankful to Mr Clancy for everything he did for us. If you are ever in any situation where you are in need of an attorney call Pete Clancy, if he is unable to assist you he will let you know that and recommend the best person to assist you. For a trustworthy, knowledgeable attorney call Pete Clancy.

Would recommend Clancy/Diaz to family and friends.
Clancy Diaz did a great job on my auto accident claim. I was very concerned about being treated fairly by my insurance company on a bodily injury claim after the struggle I had with them over the auto repair. I had to fight every step of the way to get the car fixed and could not imagine what it would take to come to agreement about proper compensation for my physical injuries. Peter Clancy took the time to explain the process to me. We set a realistic target for compensation and he handled the negotiation beautifully. If the need for an attorney should ever arise in the future I will definitely give Peter Clancy a call and would not hesitate to recommend Clancy Diaz to my family and friends.

Definitely our Family Lawyer from now on.
Pete was immediately personable and empathetic to our needs. We felt comfortable trusting him with our case. He was forthright, and communicated to us what we needed to do. He let us know our strengths and weaknesses as it pertained to our case. And was prepared to fight the good fight. Our case ended in a dismissal, due to the other parties negligence. But from the beginning, we were confident that Pete Clancy had everything taken care of and would not give up without exhausting every possibility.
