What People Say About Mike

Robert Luna

I am a huge fan of Mike Peters because he is a very competent professional and a man of uncompromising integrity. I have been a firsthand witness to these qualities and if I am ever in a legal bind, Mike would be the attorney I would want with me.

Norman W. Gordon, Judge (Ret.)

I have observed Mike Peters since 1997 when he practiced law for a very distinguished firm in the city of Long Beach. His demeanor and attitude as a practicing attorney, in my opinion, is excellent. He is well respected by both the Bench and the Bar.

Richard F. Charvat, Judge (Ret.)

Mike appeared before me many times over the years and was always professional and courteous. I found him to be honest, an excellent advocate for his clients. It is my opinion that Michael is a credit to the bar with his temperament, abilities, and experience.

John Rapillo, Esq.

I litigated a personal injury case against Mike Peters in 2012. He was professional and did an extremely good job for his client. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mike to others, or refer cases to his office.

John O’Keeffe

Mike handled a personal injury case for me. He made me feel comfortable and he was professional, courteous and understanding. I felt that my interests were well represented during the whole process. I would recommend Mike to my friends and family.

What a blessing to have Mike Peters representing my husband and I after a severe accident causing my husband to be permanently disabled.  Mike’s skills and experience were key in obtaining a recovery at the end of an all-day mediation that took care of all our needs.  God is good!

David J. Brobeck, Jr., Esq.

“As opposing counsel in a difficult personal injury matter, I was impressed with Mike’s calm demeanor and professionalism, while still being a strong advocate for his client.  I found Mike to be a man of integrity, and a class act.”
