I hired Peter to help resolve a very serious criminal charge. Peter explained all steps of the process, openly discussed pros and cons of the strategy options and provided tons of information on how to avoid pitfalls. Peter helped navigate a very complicated process and was able to achieve an absolute best possible outcome! Peter is well known and respected in greater NYC area and I am very glad I used his services.
