We have been working with Peter over the last 7 months as he was assigned our son's case. While our son is an adult, he is very immature. Peter treated him with respect, continually kept us updated, speaking with us at every court hearing. He was professional, thorough and truly caring. I am forever grateful. It is now up to our son to change, I am forever appreciative that our son has an opportunity to have a "second chance"

I'm from California and back in April of this year I was pulled over while in Washington and arrested for DUI. Through a several month process Peter Peaquin was able to get my case reduced to Reckless Driving along with Alcohol classes, etc. Peter went beyond what I expected during this very difficult time in my life, making himself available for my many phone calls and relentless questions. The two of us had countless conversations going through my case, and how we would proceed, and as I mentioned answering all of my questions and concerns that I would write down for our follow up calls. Peter and I built a strong relationship during my case and numerous trips from California for court appearences. One example would be how he'd take time, sometimes hours after court to sit with me over coffee and talk about my case, our obtions and the direction we were going in. Peter was able to get my case reduced and I am more than happy with the outcome. I cannot say enough about how at ease Peter made me feel through the process (as if he had known me for years) and I fully trusted him from our first phone calls, never even having met the man at that point in time. I would recommend Peter to anyone who needed an honest, straight shooting attorney that they could trust would do the very best job possible. ..I know he did for me and I am grateful to have found him.

Peter J Peaquin is an amazing lawyer, he is very knowledgeable and genuine. He cares about his clients, and he gets to know you on a personal level. He realizes that people make mistakes, and he isn't one to judge. He's there to defend you and make your life easier. From the first day that I called his office in search for a lawyer, I was immediately calmed by his assistant, Madeline as well as from him. I set up a consultation and that same day I was signing papers for him to take my case.
You know when you have a gut feeling that someone is just Right, well thats the feeling I got within 3 minutes of speaking to Mr. Peaquin. He kept me in the loop of everything regarding the case and made me feel at ease with my decisions, answered all my questions and was very informative as to what will be happening and going on through this long case.
I feel very fortunate to have found such a great lawyer to represent me. I would recommend him in a heartbeat.

I watch Peter take tough cases to trial. Cases that other lawyers would be scared to take. I am convinced he gets superb results for Clients in situations where others would simply be too intimidated.Put another way. he gets great results for his Clients because of his reputation to take tough matters to trial when necessary. However, the Client always comes first; I have never seen Peter's pride or ego get in the way. He is always looking out for the Client's best interest, while continuing to listen to the Client's concerns and desires. I have consulted with him, and found him to straightforward, practical and very aware of what works in the courtroom. He knows the judges, prosecutors, and court personnel better than anyone. Clients will find him a source of encouragement, compassion and strength.
