Peter M. Young

“I lost my husband in the summer of June 2016 and my whole world was turned upside down. I come from a small town in Wisconsin and wasn’t sure who to contact. I heard of Habush Habush & Rottier through their television commercials and the following Tuesday I called them. I spoke with Julie in the Rhinelander office who connected me with attorney Peter Young. For our first meeting, Peter came to my house, a gesture I truly appreciated. Our first initial meeting was extremely informative. Julie and Peter were a great team who handled the case in a professional manner while being upfront and honest with me about the process. Both were kind and compassionate as well as understanding and down-to-earth. I would have been lost without them and I would recommend Peter for anyone looking for a personal injury lawyer.”
