Helpful advice for new landlords
As a new landlord, Pete helped me understand and navigate local tenant/landlord laws. After consulting with him, I felt comfortable with the plan we had established. I appreciated his expertise.

Best Tenant/Landlord Attorney in Town
Pete handled my eviction case with the highest level of professionalism and knowledge of Oregon and city of Portland tenant/landlord law. The previous attorney I hired to evict this same tenant was totally incompetent and unqualified which proved very costly. Once I found Pete, he got right down to business the tenant was out in a matter of a few months. I would highly recommend Pete to anyone needing an attorney knowledgeable and experienced in tenant/landlord matters.

The best landlord lawyer in town
We had hired Mr. Pete Meyers to help us with an extremely difficult tenant case of ours recently. He had listened and was our guidance to effectively get back control of our property. Our now-former tenants had now moved on after creating such havoc in our lives and the lives of the neighbors next to the rental when they were living there. Thank you very much, Mr. Meyers! We are very grateful for your service, time, expertise, and compassion!

The Best
Pete is our go-to lawyer for anything involving evictions of tenants. He not only provides our property management firm with education, but is always there for us when we need him. He has successfully resolved several cases for us and has provided the utmost care and diligence with each one. The tenants in question are never happy, but I can tell you our firm and owners are ecstatic with the results. He takes the time to help us understand best practices as well. This has enabled our firm to 'see the writing on the wall' and implement the best standards to counter tricky tenancies that may be harming the home or non-complying with lease terms. This has leveled up our service to our owners which is paramount for a successful property management company. Thanks for all of your hard work Pete!

My 2nd Experience!
I used Mr. Pete Meyers in 2020 for an eviction with great success. It was not an easy case - as Covid had hit and things went south with the moratorium. Pete stayed with it - in a very professional manner and in the end we succeeded. I could not have been happier with his style, costs and his knowledge. I am now a personal representative in an estate in which I need his services to get a "squatter" out of the decedents home. I did not hesitate a second when I realized I needed help. He jumped right on getting the process started. Again, full disclosure of costs and the process, upfront. This is quite different than the prior case but I am 100% confident that we will get this accomplished with the same satisfaction as the other case. I have no stress or doubt that we will be successful. His style has not changed. Costs - right upfront. Plan - straight forward. I might add that this is in another county within the state of Oregon. I am thankful that he was able to take this on for me. Once you find a solid team player - you stick with them. So here I am. Let's do it Pete!!! Your the best.

Worked A Miracle
Mr. Meyers was able to convince my tenants that, when they gave notice to leave, it meant just that! I would definitely recommend him, and will use him in the future if necessary.

Pete was able to navigate a very difficult situation that had been festering for over 2 decades. He was able to quickly articulate a complicated matter and bolstered our courage to move forward. Pete is definitely on my referral list and certainly won’t hesitate to call him again if our situation changes.

Highly recommended
Mr. Meyers has helped me with several separate issues over the last year. He came highly recommended by other attorneys and did not disappoint! I specifically sought an attorney who was familiar with both sides of landlord/tenant law so that I could approach my cases with a better understanding of my own responsibilities when trying to resolve disputes with my tenants. Pete is very knowledgeable and current on the laws and precedents. He is prompt in his responses and very clear and direct in his instructions which saves valuable time. He was able to help me resolve three very different and complex cases as quickly and painlessly as possible. I have already referred several others to him and will definitely continue to do so.

Extremely helpful
Pete Meyers came highly recommend, and did not disappoint. He was thorough, knowledgeable, and answered my questions clearly. He helped me get set up for an upcoming likely sale of a rental house. As a bonus, I enjoyed my interactions with Pete, as he is personable and friendly.

Professional and experienced
I'm very grateful for the fact that I was able to work with Pete Meyers to resolve my tenant landlord issue. Pete was most importantly, experienced. He helped me have confidence with what to expect and how we should engage. Additionally, he was courteous, intelligent, direct, up front and a clear communicator. He helped set expectations and allowed for me to engage with him at the degree that I chose. Important to me, I'd be able to suggest courses of action that was listened to and advised upon without feeling judged for the suggestion. In a weird way, I felt like a team through the process. On top of this, he was very well prepared leading up to and handling our arbitration. I strongly suggest hiring Pete Meyers.

Excellent Attorney
We are truly blessed that Pete Meyers took our case. We got ourselves into a sensitive situation with family and Pete handled our case with such finesse and kindness. He explained the whole process to us, returned our calls in a timely manner, and was upfront and honest with his billing practice.  We will use Pete again in the future, and we do highly recommend him to our friends.

Excellent Representation.
From day 1, Pete Meyers listened to our accounting of what led up to us being threatened with eviction from our home. Due to Pete Meyers' knowledge of Oregon's Landlord/Tenant Laws, a trial was avoided by participating in a mediation with the plaintiffs. The result: we were not evicted!!!!
