  • He helped my buddy out big time. Really good lawyer.

  • WHAT I CAN TELL ANYONE LOOKING TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY TO REPRESENT THEM IS THAT BILL PETERS IS A GENUINE PERSON WHO NOT ONLY CAN FIGHT A CASE FOR YOU AND WIN, BUT ACTUALLY CARES ABOUT HIS CLIENTS. HE IS YOUNG AND DETERMINE, AND DOES NOT GO IN MISREPRESENTING CLIENTS FOR MONEY. HIS STAFF IS ALSO VERY PROFESSIONAL AND CARING. SECRETARY MARY ELLEN ANSWERS WHENEVER YOU NEED HER TO AND RELAYS MESSAGES QUICKLY. THIS MAN DEFINES WHAT MOST ATTORNEYS ARE NOT. I HAVE NEVER LEFT A REVIEW FOR ANYONE ON SOCIAL MEDAI FOR ANYTHING, ESPECIALLY IF ASKED. BILL PETERS LAW FIRM EARNED MY REVIEW. IF EVER IN TROUBLE THIS IS YOUR MAN. BILL PETERS FOR HIRE. SAY IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. THANK YOU PETERS LAW FIRM.
