I contacted Peter today to inquire about a WA Lemon Law potential case. I should have known something was up when the number on his website was answered with a confused "hello?" and I then had to inquire if I was even talking to Mr. Peter Maier's law offices. I was hoping he could review my car issues and help me determine if I have a case, I was happy to pay any review fee, I tried to explain that I have all my car repair work organized and documented, ready to send to him for review, and that there were 2 issues that I thought could be considered Serious Safety Defects but I wasn't 100% sure if they qualify, hence why I was hoping he could review my car issues and give me his opinion.
I couldn't explain any of this to him because he interrupted me every single time I tried to explain what I was calling for. He refused to listen to anything I said and then he proceeded to inform me that I don't know anything about the Lemon Laws, which if he had taken the time to listen to me he would have realized I have already done a lot of research on the topic. He the went on to explain what I already learned on my own about Lemon Law rules.
Ultimately, I got the impression that I was bothering and wasting his time since he wouldn't let me finish a single sentence. I would never recommend this person.

I am an attorney, and had an issue with a car engine exploding 6000 miles after I bought it; fix was estimated at 23k.
I hired Peter based on the recommendation of my assistant (her family had used him as well), and ultimately the case settled quite favorably.
I'm sure i was a challenging client as I did quite a bit of research on my own and had a lot of questions, but Peter was patient and listened. I have since referred several people to him for help.

Peter was able to help us resolve ongoing trouble we had with a new vehicle. The car had been in the shop several times and the issue could not be resolved. The manufacture's customer relations team just kept sending us back to the dealer who couldn't solve the issue. Peter was able to navigate past the manufactures customer relations department and achieved a great outcome.
Peter did a great job reviewing our case to make sure he was confident he could help. Peter asks direct questions and does not waste time on anything which isn't relevant. This is what you want in an attorney!
Peter and his staff are always professional and respond quickly.
I highly recommend speaking with Peter if you're new car is in the shop more than four times for the same issue.

Attorney Maier exemplifies the very best attributes of an active attorney and a level of professionalism, confidence and skill we should all aspire to. Honesty, dedication and a love of the law, which means. giving back to others who lack our understanding of the law and benefit from our inherent desire to provide the right answer. The thousands years of combined legal experience of professionals activity participating in this forum represent some of the very best of our profession, which is after all, at its base is desire to help those in need. This Attorneyâ€™s experience and knowledge, I believe, demonstrates that there is a desire to provide to provide accurate advice and obtain appropriate results for clients. Most importantly, this Attorney is willing to help complete strangers (as is the case in this forum) with legal problems for which we collectively provide useful information, thereby demystifying the legal process as much as possible. I would recommend this Attorney w
