Right away Peter took control and focused on the case. He grasped the issues immediately. He was constantly strategizing and pushing the case forward. He was proactive and driven never needing to be prodded to take action. He consistently communicated with both of us. He clearly and directly answered all of our questions and addressed each of our concerns. He reviewed all work product with us and always well in advance of deadlines. And what work product it was! His writing was incisive and cogent. He made arguments forcefully. He could dissect an unfounded opinion with precision. He could be pointed and intense when he chose to and nuanced when necessary. He never shrank from interactions with the employer’s counsel nor did he waste time with low level administrators lacking in decision making authority. He evidenced a level of engagement, assertiveness and commitment that we had only hoped for with our previous attorney. We began to feel like we finally had a real advocate. We became convinced that Peter actually gave a damn about our case.
As I stated above, Peter was very direct in his dealings with us. He also managed to be very compassionate and very respectful about the sensitive and painful circumstances surrounding my spouse at the time. This was unexpected. This care and concern for my spouse was appreciated by me more than Peter Christian will ever know. In short, Peter was remarkable to work with.
Our case went on for over a year and then suddenly came to an abrupt end. We won. Peter had successfully secured the result that my spouse and I so badly needed. And with it, some measure of vindication for all my spouse had endured. The young lawyer we had initially been so apprehensive about, had proven himself, confident and smart, talented and motivated and last, but by no means least, compassionate and caring.
