I consulted with Attorney Ross Peter's regarding a legal problem which he discussed with me at length, asking questions, then offering information, suggestions and his pleasant demeanor minimized my worrying. I would most DEFINITELY suggest calling Attorney Peter's to discuss YOUR legal problems, he is outstanding!

I want to share my experience I had with law offices of Ross Peters.
From our first telephone conversation I felt like this attorney Ross Peters cared and understand what what my legal concerns were, he was very patient and thorough with asking the right questions.
Finally he offered a payment plan that would work with my financial situation.
I’m convinced that I found the right attorney and firm.
I highly recommend if you are in need of legal services contact Ross Peters law office.

I spoke to Mr. Peters about a lawsuit. While I did not have a case, he provided me with a lot of valuable information. He gave me several other options to pursue that I found quite helpful. I would definitely use him for my legal needs and would highly recommend him to others.

I cannot say enough about Ross Peters. He was the only attorney to call me back (within hours) and offered to meet on a holiday weekend "because he sensed the urgency in my voice". He is incredibly knowledgeable and walked me through the details of my case, options I may have, and advice on next steps. I highly recommend his services.

Mr. Peters was very friendly during a phone consult. He took his valuable time to walk me thru some questions without hesitation. I would not hesitate to work with him in the future if I needed a lawyer for wrongful termination. Kindness in this world is hard to find. Ross made me feel good about myself and he doesn't even know me! Thank you Ross..

I came across Ross Peters profile while looking for representation on a possible wrongful discharge case. Ross, and we all know how hard it is to reach lawyers , actually answered the phone , and took a good 20 minutes to talk to me about my case and potential options. He didn't rush me, or was dismissive on the phone , he actually made me feel like I was important. He not only was empathetic, but never asked for a consulting fee, and actually said "I don't think you have a case, and I don't want to have you waste your money ". This might sound minor, but it is a very big deal to me. I have no connection to Mr Peters, and we had never spoken before , yet it was a very positive experience and if I ever need a lawyer for an employment issue, I would not hesitate one bit to retain him as my Lawyer.

Mr. Peters is very polite responsive and professional. He took the time to answer every question I had and explained all the possible outcomes to my case. He is a wonderful person, attorney, and advocate for your rights. He's a great combination of personal and professional. He works tirelessly, and is extremely easy to contact. He responds to emails, texts and phone calls quickly. I always felt as if I was getting 100% of his time and attention, and I am VERY satisfied.

I Definitely recommend him!

I had the pleasure of having Ross Peters represent me in a recent employment dispute with my company. I cannot recommend Ross highly enough!

Previous lawyers I'd dealt with regarding my case provided vague answers to my questions and were more interested in charging me extortionate fees. Ross is way more interested in providing clear facts & options resulting in the most efficient outcome for his clients.

Ross' straightforward, no-nonsense approach made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. Thanks Ross!

I highly recommend contacting Ross Peters for your legal concerns and needs. Ross is straight-forward, quick, clear & concise, while being very personable.

With only a few minutes of discussing my circumstances & experiences, he had fully grasped the situation, the possible reasons & outcomes and offered relevant strategies to consider acting on. Very helpful, generous with his time ...and a really nice guy.

I'll definitely recommend him to my family and friends.
I was lucky enough to find Ross Peters through the Lake County Bar Association referral site. His website was very helpful and convinced me to contact him: www rosspeterslaw com

Good luck!

Called Ross Peters for some advice as to whether I needed an attorney. He not only advise that I may not need a lawyer, but also took the time to answer all my questions.

I highly recommend Mr. Peters. After consulting with several attorneys, I knew during our initial conversation, he was a cut above the rest. He is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his profession. Most importantly, he cares and has a great deal of compassion for those he serves. I'm truly grateful our paths crossed.

Recently, I needed a top notch attorney. I called a bunch of attorneys but something struck me about Attorney Ross Peters. He was very straight to the point. He wasn’t rude just very considerate with my time and money. Attorney Ross Peters reviewed my case and represented me. The things Attorney Ross Peters said made me understand clearly the different options and directions my case could possibly take.

I am certain if I had gone with another Attorney my case outcome would not have been so much in my favor. Attorney Ross Peters advocated for me. I’m grateful he was on my side .

A good friend recommended Ross to me for a sexual harassment claim. I was looking for a lawyer who could provide expert legal guidance with emotional support. He was compassionate and generous with his time. He made me feel like I finally had an advocate in my corner. I highly recommend Ross!

Ross Peters is truly the best attorney I could ever have hoped to have. Definitely 5 stars! The first time I walked into his office, I was terrified. However, at our first meeting, I found him to be patient, courteous and very knowledgeable. He really listened to everything I had to say. When I was done, he clearly explained my options.
When I walked out of his office I was much more optimistic and confident. I was 100 percent right in putting my trust and faith in him. He really came through for me!

Whoever I talked to was very rude and disrespectful and too aggressive. I asked for consultation and the guy peters was too rude. Peters really needs to work on customer service. If you can't handle the job, just quit, there's no need for disrespect.

I called Mr. Peters requesting info on employment law. My over-the-phone consult was totally free and resulted in exactly the knowledgeable advice I needed to deal with the issue for which I asked advice! Although this did not result in billable hours for Mr. Peters, it did result in actionable information for me. This was far better service than I would otherwise have hoped for! If/when I do have a need for representation in the area of employment law I will definitely contact Ross J. Peters!

Mr. Peters handled a large matter for me. He was the consummate professional-- clearly communicating to me my rights, his plan of action, and what to expect through negotiations and potential litigation. It is clear to me that Mr. Peters has a command of the law and intuitively understands peoples' needs. I sought his help at a particularly difficult and painful time in my life and I was grateful for his compassion, empathy and expertise. His business style is efficient and transparent. I use him for all of my family's needs and routinely recommend his services to friends.

Ross J. Peters personally took the time to ask about the employment matter I needed to address. He was direct, very direct and straight to the point. Unfortunately, he felt that he did not specialize enough to properly examine my case. That being said, he spent a few extra minutes to lookup up the information of another firm that was able to assist. To me that just showed strong character and personal attention he didn’t have to offer. Thank you.

I contacted Ross Peters after speaking with several other attorneys about my employment discrimination matter and, unlike the others, he knew how to approach my case in the most effective way. He really knows employment law along with related tort issues and is particularly skilled in its procedural aspects. In addition to his competencies, he is also a compassionate advocate which shows immediately upon speaking with him, so that you know he will work diligently for your rights. I couldn't recommend anyone who is more professional and likable as an attorney.

Called mr. peters about a situation at work. Gave all my info and his receptionist said it’ll be within 24 hours for a phone call; I got it in 10 minutes. Super fast response time and got straight to the point. He was super nice and friendly, talked to me like I was a human and didn’t act like I was a lawyer and knew lawyer terms. He informed me my situation would be difficult to prove, was compassionate about what happened to me, and instead of just pushing me away gave me a couple options to choose from. He let me know that if those options don’t work we can pursue forward, but to try those first and see what happens. I had a few questions about my options and he was very thorough, again talked in terms understandable. He then thanked me for the phone call and contacting him, which I thought was very genuine of him. Also said if there’s any questions don’t hesitate to get back to him. Would definitely recommend him to people who want someone that’s willing to be compassionate about your case, yet know other options and what to do. Thanks again mr. peters.

If you have a potential employment issue/claim, Mr. Peters is heads above other attorneys in the area. Not only does he personally return calls in a prompt manner he will take the time to listen to you and give you his sage advice. If you don’t have a cause of action, he will tell you. If you possibly have a claim he will tell you that and what he can do for you. He is truly a caring and compassionate man, and a damn good attorney as well.

I had been searching for answers for months. I finally faced the reality.... I need a professional. I called Mr. Peters who answered the phone on the 2nd ring. Although, I didn't mention to Mr. Peters, he was my 5th call on a long list of attorneys listed with the Bar Association. Not one of the previous 5 calls were even answered. I didn't bother to leave messages to have my calls unreturned. I had a frustration level by the time I got to Ross Peters. Within a few seconds, the frustration, irritation and agitation were gone. Mr. Peters answered the phone and immediately made me smile. I could tell this guy was having a great day and that energy spilled over to me. That said, I walked him through my situation, he spent the time to answer my questions, gave me advice and even did a little research for me, then sent me on my way with my assignment. Boy, I can't remember the last time I encountered someone so pleasant, funny, patient, willing to help and wasn't invoicing me. He proved he is accessible, credible, honest and he CARES! You changed my whole week Mr. Peters, thanks for everything!

Although I use the "review" function on websites often, it is usually for my own use to see how people rate other items and services that I wish to use or purchase. This is the ONLY review I have written (ever) and I felt compelled to do so. Let me explain why ...

First, I will start by saying that I was at the same job for over 20 years and in the last seven years have experienced cancer and a host of other chronic health issues. The business I worked for was having financial difficulties and was really tightening the belt in many areas and ways which they never had to do before. After recently hiring a new HR VP, it was shortly after this time that I noticed longer-term, older employees being either asked to retire or having "performance issues". Being in my late 50s, it made sense that I was next on the hit list due to my encroaching age and health issues.

I reached out to Ross Peters on his website late one night pretty desperate and his awesome office manager Sharon called me FIRST thing the following morning to get the details of my case. She was extremely nice and informative and put me at ease immediately. Within two hours after relaying the details of my case to Sharon, she promptly called me back after speaking with Mr. Peters (who I was told later that I should just call Ross LOL) to set up a phone call for the next business day. I also want people to know that Ross wasn't the only attorney that I contacted but the only one that was prompt with his responses and not about the money.

Ross is an extremely knowledgeable employment attorney (among other specialties) and picks up on details that others might miss. He was very kind and down to earth and listened patiently to my situation and story but also interrupted at the right times to get the pertinent information that was needed. After listening to my work situation, Ross gave me solid advice and recommended actions that I could take immediately. He was direct, honest -- AND professional to the core. He relieved my fears immediately and made me feel safe. I took action on Ross's recommendations right away and they were spot on!! This is a man who will fight for the little guy; a man really caresI I highly HIGHLY recommend Ross to all of my friends and family and anybody who is looking for a phenomenal lawyer that will fight for you.
