We will forever be thankful for your never ending tenacity and blessed that we came to know you. You were our attorney, at times our therapist, but by the end you felt like a friend. Thank you Pete, for all you do.

Elizabeth & Aaron

Pete is very good at what he does. He’s great at writing statements and filings, of course, but he’s also great at understanding a case and seeing it from different perspectives. Both times I worked with him he pointed out things I hadn’t considered. He’s also very friendly and engaging. For example, your phone calls with him are never stressful. Part of that is his great sense of humor.

Dan

Just wanted to let you know that we are very grateful for your work. I am so glad that you were “the one” to help us! They say things happen for a reason. I haven’t figured that one out yet, but I do know that because of this we got to meet you, and for that we are very grateful. You put my mind at ease and made me feel much better. You are a good person and great at what you do.

Julian and Dora

Thank you so much for the support. Thank you for everything.
