Peter is an expert with immigration law! Highly recommend! He was able to work us through the process quickly AND affordably!

Thanks to Peter I got my green card.

Beyond professional and knowledgeable, Peter always goes above and beyond to for their clients. I was extremely skeptical and scared to even start the process. But after our first meeting I started feeling more at ease. Peter covered all the aspects of the process. Kept us up to date on any updates and reached out immediately if any changes emerged.
Extremely grateful for his professionalism, we couldn’t have done this without Peter.

Peter has helped us with two situations and we have been more than satisfied both times

Peter has helped us with two situations. The first time we turned to him when my wife applied for a green card. Peter demystified the US Immigration process. We were very satisfied. Recently Peter helped us purchase our own home. Peter walked us through the short sale process, helped rewrite the contract in a way that allowed us to be able to purchase the home and noticed a mistake in the way the bank had written the contract which could have derailed or delayed the purchase. He moved quickly, worked with the others involved and got the problem fixed.

Great job. Has handled a bunch of different things for me. Eviction with wacky tenant, Closing on a real estate sale and handling potentially fatal snags, Getting a strong settlement for a long and complicated out-of-state personal injury, even Setting up a trust so it’s not chaos for my family if I perish. Good egg.
