Need An Employment Attorney? Ross J. Peters!!!
"Hiring the best attorneys for your legal problems--just like hiring experts in any profession--is often intimidating. 1) Will the attorney live up to his or her billing/credentials/experience? How will I know in the first place? 2) How will the attorney treat me? Kindly and respectfully? Rudely and arrogantly? Professionally? 3)Most of all, can I trust my attorney, both personally and professionally?

From meeting with Mr. Peters this past Friday re my work contract, here's the responses to my own questions: 1) Mr. Peters lives beyond his billing--he's a walking encyclopedia of case law and court rulings, along with an impressive history as a litigator for high-profile cases 2) He is above all a gentleman. Seeing how nervous I was, he was low-key, kind and compassionate. At the same time, he was very direct re my options and his recommendations I felt safe in his presence, which set my own precedent. After my first appointments with experts, especially attorneys, I feel like a discombobulated mess. **Bonus! Sharon, his office manager. Competent and kind, like her boss** 3) Based on #1 and #2, I can answer #3 with "Absolutely, I can trust Mr.Peters"! So can anyone reading my review!

I beyond highly recommend Mr. Peters as an employment attorney He has class, brilliance, and morals; a kind, thoughtful straight shooter. With Mr. Peters, you get what you see Not a trace of arrogance, impatience or phony concern (=con artist with paper and initials).

I 've throughly enjoyed reviewing Mr. Peters, because 1) it's fun and of course very very rare to write about anything that's 100% positive, at least in one's own opinion, especially 1) a human 2) who is a gifted attorney 3) and a class act 4) that will work with me (!)

Ross J. Peters is "A Gentleman and a Scholar"--high praise, short phase and absolutely right.


“I spoke with many other attorneys before speaking with Ross. All of them seemed as though it was all about money, and not about my case. Ross came highly recommended from a friend of mine; since day one not only Ross but his staff made me very comfortable with the whole process. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an attorney that is not just in it for the money, but who is going to fight for you.”

“The best attorney I have met.”
N.M., Chicago

“I first worked with Ross Peters in my capacity as President of Permatron corporation in 1993. I retained Ross for the first time in a UCC trans state commerce case against a very large supplier. Not only was Ross dedicated and hard working in his capacity as our attorney, but he very simply and elegantly backed off double teams of attorneys to successfully win for us.”
