Client Testimonials

Big Firm Quality

Strongly recommended. They quickly grasped my legal situation and provided me with well thought out options to consider at each decision point of my legal matter. They are smart, tough and has the experience to deal with complex legal matters. The attorneys at Canel, King and Jones, provide big firm quality, but the personal attention only available at a smaller practice. The personal relationship developed with me during my matter provided me with the confidence that they had my interests in mind.

Complete Victory

I hired Peter to represent my co-directors and me in a breach of fiduciary duty dispute with a co-owner. Peter and his partner Bill joined our trial team just prior to trial and helped us obtain a complete victory at trial. Peter had an uncanny ability to focus on what was important to succeed at trial. Peter was well prepared, organized and thoughtful.

Finest Civil Litigators

I am a Florida Attorney and have had the privilege of litigating with Peter King both as an opposing party and as co-counsel. Peter is one of the finest civil litigators I have encountered in 40 years of practicing law. His preparation is meticulous, and his courtroom presentation is articulate, persuasive, and effective. Peter always protects his client’s best interest by weighing risk, benefit, and the ever-increasing costs and expense of civil litigation. If I ever need personal legal representation Peter would be my first choice.

Best Results for their Clients

I am a California attorney and had the pleasure of being co-counsel with Peter King and Bill Jones in a complicated real estate case through a lengthy trial. In my over 30-years of practice, I have rarely met attorneys with the dedication and commitment Peter and Bill have towards the law and getting the best result for their clients.
