"Mr. Richter [is a] superb trial attorney and would rank among the best in any legal community." - Trial Judge

"I tried a contract case with Peter Richter in March of this year. He was thoroughly prepared and did a great job at direct and cross examination, and in his argument. Beyond that, he brought to a case charged with emotion a fine sense of balance and good humor. While trials are full of stress and conflict, my experience with Peter was a lot of fun."
