PETER G. DEGELLEKE

ATTORNEY AT LAW


I’ve been practicing law for over 40 years in a broad number of areas including criminal defense, personal injury, civil litigation, and business law. I’ve also had the distinguished honor of teaching trial advocacy at Harvard Law School, as I’ve gathered extensive courtroom experience as a fierce litigator.

TIPS TO GET YOU STARTED

Allow my decades of experience to
help you navigate your legal matter.

I’ve been practicing law for over 40 years, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s the importance of collaboration. I believe that working with my clients means listening to what they’ve been through so that I can understand their situation and the legal ramifications so we can begin to formulate a plan that fits their specific needs.

That’s why I always encourage my clients to be as open and honest with me as possible, as I will be equally committed to keeping an honest and open dialogue. I want you to feel comfortable with me so that we can work together to find a solution that is tailored to your specific circumstances

The first thing I always tell people is to seek medical attention. Your health and well being is always the most important thing to consider after an injury or auto accident. Once you’ve seen a doctor, speak with an experienced injury attorney before any insurance company. You never have to give a statement.

It’s always important to take written notes and photographs to document the incident. Document your injuries, the scene of the accident, property damage, and anything else that could be relevant to the incident. Your memory of events can quickly fade, and these photos could be crucial to your case.

Just because you’ve been accused of a crime, doesn’t mean you’re automatically guilty. Everyone has the right to a defense, and it’s important that you speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as you’ve been charged with a crime. Don’t make any official statements without your attorney present.

I can help you through the entire process of defending yourself. We will sit down and discuss the details of your case before outlining an aggressive defense strategy that can maximize your chances at successfully defending your charge. I’ll also be upfront with you so you never feel unsure about your case.

In addition to helping clients with personal injury and criminal defense matters, I also offer my knowledge and expertise in other areas of the law, including civil disputes. I’ve helped countless clients settle civil disputes inside and outside the courtroom so that they can successfully move forward.

Whether you’re a corporation who needs help with risk management, or you simply need general business litigation services, I have the skills and experience you need to ensure that your interests are protected throughout the entire process. Whatever civil matter you’re facing, I’ve got your back.

ADVOCATING FOR YOU SINCE 1977

Since earning my law degree in 1977, I’ve done my very best to serve as a trusted advocate for every single client that walks through my doors. It’s always been important to me to establish an honest and trusted relationship with my clients so that they can feel comfortable putting their case in my hands.

I encourage a collaborative approach with all of my clients so that together we can discuss the details of your situation and all of the options you have available to you. At the end of the day, you deserve to have an attorney that can work with you and make you feel comfortable about your case and the direction it’s going — and I aim to provide that.
