I’ve know Peter for over 23 years. He has been my lawyer on my WC case and has always had my best interest in mind. It’s hard at time to understand all the legal jargon but Peter will break it down to you when asked. I appreciate his person-ability and frankness. It’s been a long road for me. I had a very bad accident and I honestly believe that Peter got to know me through the years and represents me on looking for the best outcome due to my condition. I do appreciate him.
I first used Attorney Peter Upton 2 years ago, simply to solicit advice on a matter. He has become my “go to” person for everything legal, and we have done many things together since. He is experienced, trustworthy and has a flair for understanding your problems. Highly recommended!
