"Peter was an outstanding attorney. I worked with Peter within the last three years on a product-liability burn case. If I had any questions or concerns, Peter would get back to me in a heartbeat. Whether it was a phone call or email, he always made sure I was informed. The case settled, and I was pleased with the outcome. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone in need of a personal injury lawyer."
