Criminal defense Attorney | Feb 07
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Mr. Peters is an excellent, caring and dedicated trial lawyer. While he is fully competent to assist with most general matters, he is particularly adept in the area of criminal defense and trial skills. I have known "Gordon" for several years professionally and personally. He has vigorously represented some rather high profile defendants in the City of Lynchburg and surrounding environs. He is an aggressive lawyer who is not afraid of trial. However, he is also honest and trustworthy and lets his clients know if they have unreasonable expectations."
