Thanks to Philip my DUI charge was amended to reckless driving. I had prior drinking and driving charges as a minor so I am very thankful Philip was able to get this done for me. He was always there when I had questions, he responds immediately when you need help and never leaves you hanging. He reminded me of my upcoming court dates as well which was very helpful. He came highly recommended by a family friend and I'm highly recommending him if you need help with a DUI charge! You can rely 100% on Philip to help you get you out of a bind! He is also very reasonably priced compared to other lawyers in the area based on how great he is! Thank you Philip!

Phil Petersen accomplished quite the feat with my first and last DUI case. I started with the most important fact for those readers with a short attention span. He's a very skilled attorney and he's honest. I had consultations with other attorneys prior to retaining him. He had better prices and seemed more understanding and knowledgeable than the others. He didn't promise me the pie in the sky, but he also didn't try to scare me with the worst case scenario or false information.
I appreciated his complete attention each time we met. He treated me with respect and listened to all of my concerns. He spoke with the voice of experience, despite his young age. He KNOWS the laws, even the most recent ones. Mr. Petersen is also willing to answer your questions without making you feel ignorant. My favorite quality is that he entertains your ideas. I had tried to research as many loop holes and alternatives, as possible. Each one he would acknowledge and explain how this might be helpful or why it wasn't an option. He has prompt responses to emails, phones calls, and even texts. He doesn't clock in and out; this is his own practice and he handles everything himself. You are paying for your own attorney to do it all; not a paralegal or secretary. He works hard for himself, by himself. He makes sure to submit everything on time and request the needed records. Each court appearance, he was dressed professionally and arrived on time.
He had a very big challenge with my case since the prosecuting attorneys were not willing to negotiate the DUI down to a neg or reckless. We tried to reach a plea agreement for six months and they wouldn't budge. Finally, it was time for the trial to begin. He kept me informed every step of the way. He also let me decide when choices were presented. He made every effort to avoid going to trial and ultimately succeeded. His unwavering belief in the law and providing evidence to the court resulted in the case being dismissed. Even when things looked hopeless, he continued to defend my case and make motions on my behalf. I'm certain that no other lawyer would have put forth this much time and effort on a case like mine. Sometimes the quarterback throws a Hail Mary and it scores a touchdown. That's exactly what ended up happening and I'm still cheering from the sidelines. I will continue to cheerlead for Mr. Petersen by telling all of my friends, family, and colleagues about his game-saving (life-saving) performance in and out of the courtroom. He has earned my respect and the admiration of those in his professional community by being trustworthy and having follow through. Hopefully I will never require legal assistance again, but I know he'll be there if I need him. He's truly the best choice to have by your side. Thank you, Mr. Petersen, for being competent, courageous, courteous, and committed!

Thank you for saving my future and protecting my rights during my case.
To sum up my case.
I do not normally drink and I did have a prior DUI. While out to celebrate an old friends promotion, I went out had a 2 1/2 beers and went home. I was arrested and ended up in jail where I met someone who had had great faith in his Attorney. He referred me to Mr. Petersen.
I met with Mr. Petersen and after the free consultation, I felt something inside say, he's a winner and will do so with honor. I am not a criminal, just a man who made a mistake. His service is not cheap but far from expensive, and you will understand how reasonable his rates are when you go through the process and meet other individuals that have paid far more and received far less.
Mr. Petersen's contacts through others services like evaluations etc., his name on your paperwork, everything about him brought people and the court to respect my case and not force me into a corner.
He is confident, tactical and patient. The Prosecutor against my case openly admitted to pursue my case as she thought it was a "homerun", and was not going to give up reckless or Neg.
Being my second, I know this is as good as it will get, and she was not going to budge. She was willing to lose the case than let me off. Simply put.
Where Philip outshines others, he took a 2nd DUI and made it cost effective, treatment wise and everything else, the cost equal to that of a first one.
I am done with all services and let me tell you, if I went with another Attorney other than Philip, I would have been ground up.
He is also an attractive Attorney which is the way of the world. He is patient and calm under pressure. Having this is also extremely key, as when we walk into the courtroom, even the Judges eyes would smile.
A DUI is expensive, but I prayed to my Lord and Savior and it guided me to, Mr. Petersen.
Philip, what you have done for me is forever love inside my heart, and my family also Thanks you. God bless you and I have prayed for your success and happiness.
I have met people that have spent more and when I tell them about my case, all they say is their Attorney was the best for them, but I'm the one smiling and walking out the door. If you are a good person and you did made a mistake, Philip is the one you want.
Mr. Petersen, Thank you! Godspeed.

The greatest thing that I could of done was to have Phillip Petersen as my attorney!
You will not be sorry to have him!. He walks you step by step through any questions you may have, he has compassion for his clients. I would of missed a trail date if it was not for him calling and advising me of the date!.
He is there for you!

I knew of Mr. Petersen thru a family member, so when I needed help with my misdemeanor charge I called him. After several court dates and negotiation he was able to get my charged reduced. I am relieved and grateful. He was always available and helpful if I had questions. He has really reasonable rates too. He worked hard for me and I would recommend him to anyone that finds themselves in this situation and needs some help.

Philip Peterson was an excellent DUI lawyer. Always was keeping me informed and always reminded me of court dates the day before. I never had too worry about anything. Very professional. In the end Mr. Peterson was able to get a bogus Hit and Run completely dropped and the charges on the DUI reduced down to Recluse Driving. I was very happy with the outcome and would highly recommend Mr. Peterson to anyone.

I consulted Mr. Pederson after a DUI arrest in August of 2012 and can’t imagine what I would have done or how severe the consequences would have been without his assistance. Phil walked me through the process and informed me as to precisely what I could expect. I was scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan before the incident and, thanks to Phil, was able to do so without complications as he coordinated court dates to coincide with my leave time. He was willing and able to work with my difficult schedule and helped make a difficult process considerably less painful. I highly recommend Phil to anyone who finds themselves in similar circumstances.

I got my first ticket a couple months ago, and after I was done crying I called my best friend. She referred me to Philip. I called him and he reassured me that he could help me out, all I had to do was get him a copy of the ticket. A month later, Philip went to court on my behalf, and the ticket was completely dismissed! I drive for a living, so I can't even begin to describe how stressed I was. I recommend Philip to everyone I know!

I don't know where to start. I think Philip Petersen is a very good lawyer. I found him on the Internet. I was so shook up that I had a recent DUI and its my first. I emailed him for assistance and he responded right away. Philip was generous and comforting. I am deaf but can lip read and talk well. Philip was patient and took the time to communicate with me via email. Philip also made sure I would get an interpreter for hearings. I am very happy with the outcome and this would not have happened without Philips support. I would probably end up in jail, high fees and so on. Philip rocks!!!
