My husband and I was in the last year of our Chapter 13 bankruptcy with a different firm and our lawyer passed away. We were connected to Peter through a list of recommendations. Our first visit with Peter we knew he would be the best choice for our situation. Peter was down to earth, understanding, he explained our situation and process in detail where we were able to understand each step of the process moving forward. We ended up doing a second Chapter 13 & a Chapter 7 with Peter leading the way. We appreciate Peter and the staff for being professional throughout our process.

A lawyer who explains everything so I understand
I was having a tough time making the decision to declare bankruptcy. I had a successful business but was forced out of my location due to eminent domain laws. I was introduced to Peter by a family member who had heard that he really cares. One consultation and I felt like the weight was coming off my shoulders. Peter and his staff are always there. A warning in advance... Pete is a Marine and boxing coach. He is not your typical lawyer, he talks straight and does not beat around the bush but he is really good and has fought for our family.
