Pete Young did a great job after my car accident. I was hit head-on through no fault of my own. Following the accident, I was unsure of what steps to take or what my rights were. I contacted Pete and he helped me every step of the way dealing with insurance companies, medical bills, and everything else that came up. He did an amazing job explaining things and kept me well-informed throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend Pete Young to anyone.

I had the pleasure to work with Peter over a three-year period on my personal injury case. I can honestly say that Peter made what could have been an unpleasant experience pleasurable. The whole time I worked with Peter I always felt that I was being represented at the highest level and he always communicated with me what was going on and where we were at all times. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my case and would highly recommend Peter no matter how large or small the case. Peter is clearly a rising star in the Habush firm.

I was in my first car accident just over a year ago where I was struck by another driver and did have some injuries because of it. I was unsure of the process and was overwhelmed with all the phone calls from the clinic and the insurance company and not even sure what my rights were. I hired Pete to help me out with this traumatic event. From the moment he started I did not receive any more phone calls and he kept me well informed of the discussions he was having on my behalf. A car accident is not a fun thing to deal with and Pete was very understanding and patiently answered all my questions about the case and what my rights are in this situation. He did everything in his power to make sure I received the treatment I needed as well as the financial amount I was owed. I would definitely highly recommend Pete Young to anyone who is seeking a lawyer!
