More importantly, he is a genuine, caring, down to earth, honest man. Prior to hiring Peter, I spoke with a few other lawyers in town, since there was only a handful who handled Pardon requests. However, after initial contact with Peter over the phone, I immediately knew he was the lawyer I wanted and needed to help me with my legal burden. He was both professional and empathetic during the course of our consultation. Immediately after hanging up with me, he went to the courthouse to review my case file. He then called me back within a half hour and walked me through the entire process, step by step. He was very well organized, knowledgeable, and passionate. He always returned my calls and texts promptly when I had questions or concerns. Through the whole two-year process, he kept me informed of any and all progress in my case, which gave me a sense of trust and relief. I was one of seven people to receive a pardon from Governor Newsom, and only the second person in San Luis Obispo to ever receive a full Governor’s Pardon. If you have legal concerns, trust me, you want Peter Depew on your side. My name is Laurie Gardner, and I highly recommend Peter Depew for all your legal needs. Crystal If you’re looking for lawyer. A good one. Someone to fight for your side I highly recommend Peter Depew. I had a great experience with Mr. Depew he was caring and so professional he did an excellent job handling my case. I was very satisfied with the outcome. T. C. I would highly recommend Peter Depew for any criminal matter you may be facing. Peter is extremely responsive, caring, and easy to work with. It was clear from the outset of his representation that he is well versed in both the procedural side of the criminal system as well as the law itself. Peter achieved a highly favorable outcome for my case and charged a reasonable fee to do so. Criminal matters are stressful by nature and Peter was a god send during difficult times. I would highly recommend him to not just my friends and family but others as well. David Peter Depew is excellent. I found myself in trouble while visiting SLO from where I live, 6 hours away. I had no idea where to turn since I didn’t live in the area. So, based on the positive reviews for the Law Offices of Peter Depew, I figured that I should at least call for an over-the-phone consultation and hope that I could get a “feel” for the services that he would provide. Boy, the reviews were correct. He treated me like a person and didn’t look down at me. We spoke of strategy and possible outcomes, but the whole time he was realistic and informative. We agreed on the terms and I hired him. Throughout the course of my court dates, and because of the nature of my charges, he solely represented me without requiring me to make the 6-hour trip to SLO. He kept me informed all of the way via text, email, and phone and I was never left wondering what was happening. He explained his decisions and strategies so that I felt like we were a team versus him just going to bat for me. In the end, a deal was made with the prosecution that was too good to be true, let alone too good to pass up. I feel as though we won my case however even if my outcome wasn’t as good, my review of the Law Offices of Peter Depew would be the same. Mr. Depew was earnest, helpful, caring, sincere and fair. Not traits that you would normally state about an attorney. In a time that was pretty scary to me, he gave me confidence that I would get the fairest treatment and outcome possible. Thank you Peter Depew. Patty Mr. Depew: Professional, compassionate, and a great communicator. Very organized and detailed with a case that implicated factors that could easily have a unfavorable outcome and a nightmare for client and family.

The future of a young individual placed on a lawyers hands, we trusted him, the outcome was 100% better than expected, he delivered way more than he promised. I highly recommend Mr. Depew, if you ever have to deal with any legal matters, he is very knowledgeable and takes pride on his work, he delivers! Nate Peter was great to deal with! I had a case in California that was never fully handled 15 years prior. He assured me he would do his best to get this case dismissed. He followed up very well after every court visit. I was glad to have this finally resolved and put to rest. I had called several other lawyers prior about this case but am glad I went with him!! Peter is very professional and displayed great empathy with my situation. Thank you sir! Ed I can’t recommend Pete Depew highly enough! For my court case, I had no idea what to do or where to turn. Pete always took the time to explain all options and what he felt to be the best course of action. Every time I had a question, he would respond to me right away, even during after hours! There were never any “extra” or hidden fees, and the level of service I got always made me think I was getting an incredible deal. When everything was wrapped up, I was amazed; it went beyond fair- it was excellent! Starting with my first exploratory phone call, I felt I was getting not only a knowledgeable attorney, but one who knew the SLO court system thoroughly. I’ll end this review the way I started it- I can’t recommend Pete Depew highly enough! Pat Very professional and knowledgeable. Always returned my phone calls promptly and all consultation was free. Great experience! Erica Great service and great representative! Alex Peter Depew is extremely efficient and professional. He was responsive to my phone calls and always available to answer questions.

I highly recommend him if you want to feel secure that your case is being handled well. Jake Pete is an awesome lawyer, and more importantly, a truly nice guy. I had been represented by a public defender in SLO for 9 months, and had gotten nowhere with the District Attorney. I hired Pete the day before my trial setting conference. He attended the conference for me on short notice, met with the DA and the judge, and negotiated the deal that I had been seeking all along. It was a great result for me personally, but it was also a just and fair result which served the interests of all parties. As a prior Officer in the United States Army, Pete has integrity, and I appreciate that quality in a person whenever I come across it. I can’t thank him enough for his advocacy and for his friendship. anonymous Mr. Depew was very helpful and timely in appearing in court and negotiating a reduction in charges and getting dismissals. He keep us informed and charged a reasonable fee. This review is from a person who hired this attorney. Margarita My husband was in need of representation and Pete was able to provide us with assistance for his case. We continue to be extremely happy with the outcome of his case. From the beginning Pete was easy to talk to and he was accessible throughout the entire process. He explained everything very thoroughly and answered all our questions and possible outcomes. He responded our texts and calls quickly and was available. Pete was very down to earth and made us feel very comfortable talking to him. He is very knowledgeable in his profession and it was demonstrated in the outcome of our case. He treated us with importance and respect and talked to us candidly. We will definitely recommend Pete to anyone we know who might need his services and if we ever need a lawyer again he will be the one we will call. Bill Mr. Depew was consistent and enthusiastic about answering all of my inquiries, he made sure that I understood everything I needed to know and he used his knowledge and experience to give me precise answers to my questions. I recommend contacting him to anyone in need of the help of a great law expert. anonymous After reaching out to Peter Depew with urgent concerns, he responded promptly with helpful advice. As others have said, I quickly felt a sense of relief, less stress and knew he’d be a great lawyer. Lori My son was in need of legal assistance and I had called a few other lawyers and after explaining the situation, they brushed me off. When I spoke with Peter he made us feel comfortable and that he would be able to help my son’s case. He is very professional and goes the extra mile for his clients. He responded quickly to my calls and texts. We were very pleased with the outcome of my son’s case as all charges were dismissed. We will definitely recommend Peter Depew to anyone who may need his services and if we ever need a lawyer again he will be the one we call. khrishna Peter Depew, was my lawyer for a DV case since Nov of 2017. Peter helped me through the long process of fighting my case for many months. He supported all my decisions in regards to my plea. He never once tried to make me settle for less or make me settle for something I did not want. He remained confident, determined throughout the whole process. We were in constant communication throughout the whole case via text messages and phone calls. He never failed to keep me updated and encourage me. Even when I felt like giving in Peter was there to push me forward through the process. Due to Peter’s determination and enthusiasm, I had my case dismissed. Peter was appointed to me rather than me seeking him out and I could not have asked for any better. Peter is committed to every case and I will continue to recommend him. anonymous Peter was fantastic to work with and had a great balance of being realistic and empathetic. Peter took on my case and was able to stop the DA from filing so It never even went to court. Peter was extremely communicative and was able to answer the hundreds of “what if” questions I had when navigating all the legal information. Peter was also transparent with me and helped ease my nerves when dealing with my case. I never thought I’d ever have to hire a lawyer to begin with but when life threw me a curveball, hiring Peter was the best decision I made. Kylee I was appointed a public defender who couldn’t take my case due to conflict of interest with who was representing the other person involved in my case. I was then appointed Peter and he got my case dismissed in the one day that he was appointed to me. He made me feel very at ease about everything, and represented me during the last couple hours of my last court date, he immediately texted me to tell me he was able to get my case dismissed. Peter DePew genuinely cares about his clients and I am so grateful he was able to do everything he did for me.

Wyatt I found Pete after a night of heavy drinking left me with 2 misdemeanor charges and 1 felony charge. He was able to get my charges reduced to a single misdemeanor charge which was punished by 2 years informal probation and a fine (which he got reduced from $1000 to $250. I am beyond pleased with the results Pete was able to achieve for me and would recommend him to anyone in need of an attorney. Sean C. Pete handled our son’s case in which three charges were reduced to just one. His communication skills, his negotiating skills with the DDA, his attention to detail (and the specifics of the case), his knowledge on how to navigate the court system and finally his recommendations throughout the process allowed Peter to exceed our expectations — all at a very reasonable and affordable price. Our family is truly grateful for his work and the ultimate outcome. Thanks Pete! Melissa I didn’t know that expungement existed. But, this was brought to light while trying to obtain records for an interview. Personally knowing the importance of having an expert is immeasurable (Yes, I’ve tried to file legal paperwork without an attorney and it’s painful at best for the average person) I began to research and came across Peter Depew’s website. After phone interview, since I live out-of-town, there was no doubt in my mind he had all the qualities I was looking for in a lawyer. I immediately felt comfortable corresponding. His education, military background and down to earth personality makes him an excellent choice. He gives a realistic time frame and is always one step ahead, alleviating stress along the way. He follows up and follows through.

He even provides his cell phone number so you can text him or call him whenever you have a question or need reassurance. Peter met with me the day I called, sent out an investigator to obtain witness statements, and prepared a mitigation package to present to the DA within 48 hours from our initial meeting. Peter was able to get my criminal case dismissed by the DA due to lack of evidence and, therefore, no charges were filed and my name and reputation were not tarnished. Peter also works with his clients to set up fair and reasonable payment options. I highly recommend Peter Depew as a criminal defense attorney who will achieve the best possible outcome for your needs. Alex I had a pretty old case in San Luis Obispo and looked for someone to represent me in my absence, as I now live out of state. Peter responded quickly and was very knowledgeable about the laws pertaining to my case. His initial fee was low, on the assumption that he would be able get at least one of the charges dismissed, and we could avoid a jury trial. Both those things happened, and I credit his knowledge of the court system, the judges involved, and the DA’s likely preferences. I’m impressed and happy with his skills at negotiating the outcome, and even though I never met him in person, I clearly felt that he was thoughtful, caring, and empathetic – in addition to being a smart and skilled attorney. Dara D. I have previously worked with Peter and would recommend him to anyone seeking a criminal defense attorney.

Mr. Depew helped me expunge 2 felonies from 8 years ago. I am now able to apply for jobs and confidently mark the box where I confirm I am NOT a convicted felon. Mr. Depew was very knowledgeable and he took care of everything within a month, we had to wait 3 weeks before we could go to court. If you ever have any issues, Mr. Depew is your guy. Julian M. Peter Depew is a man you can trust. I had some questions I needed answering about a potential case, Peter doesn’t make you send all your info, email, address, job like the other guys. They might as well ask for my SSN and bank passwords! Instead, Peter just called me within a half hour and spoke to me like a human being. I will be calling Peter again with any questions regarding my rights. Miya T. It’s hard to find words to describe Peter Depew.

I have found during my life that opinions are a dime a dozen and that most shouldn’t be expressed whatsoever! However, I feel it is my duty and my honor to thank you for taking my case.

My relative’s case was possession of a firearm which was a violation of his probation. Because of my relative’s initial charge of possessing firearms (Peter did not handle this case), we weren’t sure what the outcome would be.

David I wish i had more then 4,000 characters to write about the outstanding work Peter Depew has done for me but I will get straight to the point.

Sal I had a charge for a domestic violence from a women claiming to be my girlfriend and made false accusations to the police that ultimately ended with me in jail. I contacted a few attorneys and none of them stood out the way Mr. Depew did. When I told him my story, he seemed very intrigued by the situation and wanted to help. He said, “he wants to put his 2 cents in on this case” something I didn’t hear any of my attorneys say which told me that this man was passionate about getting me the right outcome. All in all, the case got dropped and I wasn’t charged with anything. I saw this guy has someone in my corner willing to go to battle for me and he did. I hope to never have to go through dealing with the law again but if I did, I know exactly who to call. Miya It’s hard to find words to describe Peter Depew.

I had prior criminal offenses and even though I was the victim of DV, I was arrested for being the abuser by my ex who used to be a police officer so I felt completely hopeless.
