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.
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.
Brilliant Caring Lawyer
After 2 life experiences with major legal malpractice, the nicest thing happened, when I contacted your firm. I got excellent advice from a brilliant caring lawyer. My faith in lawyers has been renewed, thanks to Peter King. His free advice has solved my problem, with an immediate response to my online inquiry. Hire this law firm and you will get honest, caring legal professionals that will right a wrong-not cause the wrong.
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.
I have known Peter King and Bill Jones in this business for decades, and have been involved in cases with them. They are tenacious, exceptionally bright, practical, ethical, and have formidable trial and appellate skills. I have also referred friends and family to King & Jones for commercial and estate litigation and they have always gotten outstanding results. With this firm, you get experienced, well-respected lawyers who care about their clients and always do what is necessary to get the best outcome possible.
