I had the opportunity to work in Peter’s office for about two years. He is an outstanding attorney who has 30+ years of experience practicing law. During my time working with Peter, I witnessed the amount of time and dedication he puts into each case. He holds himself and those who work with him to a high standard to ensure that each of his clients receive the most favorable outcome. He is very meticulous, compassionate, and committed to achieving the best possible results for his clients. I would highly recommend Peter and his team to anyone seeking legal representation.

In my mothers words I am posting the following review on her behalf.

I was walking through a parking lot when a car backed up, knocked me down and ran over my foot. I had a very complicated injury involving a badly broken ankle, so I tried every other remedy to help but finally needed surgery. My surgeon waited two years to perform the surgery because the driver’s insurance company would not cover the full cost for the surgery. The claims adjuster at the driver’s insurance company gave me a very difficult time with almost every medical expense I submitted.

Fortunately, I had hired Peter DeFilippis & Associates to represent me in this matter. Not only did his team help me get the insurance company to cover the full cost of my surgery but also helped me secure the maximum available amount in a settlement for this injury from both the insurance company for the other vehicle and my own car insurance coverage. He brought the case to Arbitration and was 100% successful. Peter DeFilippis and his team were very helpful and supportive throughout every step of this process. I would highly recommend Peter DeFilippis. – Florette

I cannot speak more highly of Peter DeFilippis & Associates. Over the years, he has advised me and given me expert advice on multiple legal matters.  He has been more than helpful, while being genuinely empathetic to the sensitivity of my issues.  He responds to me immediately, is very professional, respectful, very detail-oriented and extremely dedicated.  He always takes the time to answer all of my questions. Peter and his team are a pleasure to work with, experts in their field and they truly care about their clients. I recommend Peter DeFilippis & Associates highly

I first met Pete nearly 30 years ago, when we both were actively volunteering in the community, since before I even went to law school, and he is one of the most accomplished, easy-going, honest, and professional attorneys I ever have met.

Pete has provided me with personal legal advice and advice to my family on and off for years. Also, now that I myself have been practicing in the legal field for over 15 years, I STILL go to Pete with advanced questions of law or technique when I have questions on behalf of my clients. Additionally, I have referred him clients in the areas of personal injury, insurance, and business, and whenever I feel like someone needs a sympathetic ear and an honest assessment, a lawyer that won’t waste *their* time, I refer them to Pete.

He never fails, falters, or falsifies. He should be listed at the beginning and end of every legal directory, and on everyone’s speed dial. I know he’s on mine.

Peter and his staff will go above and beyond to ensure your case gets the compensation it deserves. He knows the law, inside and out and uses it as a tool to make sure his clients’ rights are protected. If you’re ever in any kind of accident, make sure you get medical care: let Peter and his team handle the rest!

Peter Defilippis is steadfast, honorable and a very skilled lawyer. I was seriously injured by a distracted driver in NYC, I thought since it was clear this person was totally at fault their insurance would take care of things. Wow, was I wrong. After four years of horrible tactics by insurance companies, Peter had been diligent and built an undeniable case. Still these representatives would not settle the matter, so my case went to trial which lasted one week. Peter presented the case in such a manner that it was clear to judge and jury that a large settlement was in order. Finally, these defense lawyers agreed to a proper settlement indicative of the damage I had sustained. I will never be the same physically, but thanks to Peter and his advocacy I received justice. Peter is a gentlemen and highly respected lawyer.

I highly recommend consider Peter’s services.

He effectively diagnosed our standing in a claim regarding structural damage done to a structure in NYC from an adjoining construction project. His work resulted in getting an insurance company to fairly adjust the claim.

In addition to the successful judgement, he was able to break down the issue with clear and easy communication and was always quick in responding to questions.

A few years ago, my family and I made the decision to file a posthumous lawsuit on behalf of a family member. We quickly discovered that most lawyers are extremely picky with the cases they accept, and are looking for “slam-dunk” slip and fall accidents, rather than the ones that might require a little work. We were about to give up when a friend recommended Peter, which was a godsend. He listened to our story, and agreed to represent us. The whole process was very emotional for us, but Peter was our rock throughout it. We won the case, and received a nice settlement. I cannot express my gratitude enough to Peter, who essentially became a family member during the whole grueling ordeal. If you ever find yourself in need of a lawyer, do not hesitate to give him a call; you`ll be glad you did.

Mr. Defilippis has saved us from losing our home. He is very experienced and honest, calm, level headed, and extremely detailed. No wonder he has been awarded the Client Satisfaction Award, and named one of the ten New York Super Lawyers for consecutive years.

I worked with Pete during my junior/senior year in college from 2007 to 2008 and it was my first law office experience. While it was challenging and demanding, it was very rewarding and during my time with Pete I learned many valuable skills that have helped me throughout my career as an attorney. Most importantly, I was able to learn from a true professional about how to conduct business the right way and treat clients with dignity and respect. Based on my experience, I would recommend Pete as an attorney who will provide a high level of client service to his clients.

Peter Defilippis and his approach to law can be summed up simply with 3 key words- integrity, honesty and expertise.  I consulted Peter Defilippis during a time of duress when complex legal advice was needed.  His professional and personal approach directed me to a swift, stressless conclusion.  I highly recommend his firm for legal counsel that you can trust.

My wife and I hired Mr. Defilippis as our lawyer for a case. It was the most pleasant experience and was capped off by getting a very handsome settlement that we did not expect to receive.  Aside from being a shrewd and diligent lawyer he has a heart of gold. If you want to be treated correctly and want a sharp lawyer Peter is the man for the job.

I’ve hired Peter Defilippis multiple times since the 1990s. He’s my go-to guy for a variety of legal matters.

In 2003 and 2004, I was a candidate for public office in New York. I had trouble understanding sections of the state’s election law which, as anybody who’s ever delved into the subject can attest, is highly complex, convoluted and practically undecipherable (especially to lay people).

In order to minimize the chances of my campaign committing any legal violations, I hired Peter to review the relevant sections and help us stay in compliance. He performed a comprehensive review and distilled the information into an easy-to-read and easy-to-understand set of guidelines.

These guidelines simplified our efforts to remain in compliance with the law, saving us a lot of time and money. The guidelines enabled us to navigate safely around many potential problems (petitioning, contribution limits, deadline dates, election day restrictions, etc.).

Peter has also provided helpful legal advice for me in the areas of taxes, bankruptcy, immigration, not-for-profit corporations and for-profit corporations.

He and his firm are consistently reliable, competent and affordable. In addition, Peter is friendly, funny and easy-going. In over 20 years as a client of his, I’ve had a very good experience.

I want to thank Peter DeFilippis and Associates for all their hard work and determination to win a lawsuit for my family against a man with a suspended license who killed my brother while he was crossing the street. Peter and his team worked long hours for years to fight multiple insurance firms who did not think my brother’s loss of life was worth a settlement to his family. Peters ethics are above reproach.  His professionalism and compassion helped my family through a very trying time while always having our best interest at heart.  I recommend Peter DeFilippis and Associates to anyone who is seeking solid legal representation from a team who puts their client’s interest before their own.

I highly recommend Peter. He is a consummate professional and a very knowledgeable attorney. Working with him, I valued his high standards of integrity and his professional generosity. He is a great mentor. Peter is dedicated to getting the best results for his clients and an asset to the legal profession.

Joseph O’Donnell, Esq.

I have been Peter’s friend and colleague since 1994, and during that time I have worked with him on several personal injury cases. Peter is a consummate professional and a zealous advocate to the core. He demands the best from himself and those who work with and for him so that he can achieve the best outcome for his clients.

I have found Peter to be methodical and detail oriented, preparing every case as if it were going to trial. He has systematized his practice to such a degree that he has developed explicit procedures and methodologies to manage his cases. These case management procedures and methodologies make him a diligent task master with his staff and collaborators, but his obsession with the details ensure that every case is ready to be tried, if necessary. As a result of this case management style and his preparedness, along with being both a litigator and trial attorney, Peter knows that trying his case is a viable option. This allows him to negotiate from a position of strength, making him a tough negotiator as well as a fierce litigator, a combination that results in significant recoveries for his clients.

I have enjoyed those opportunities I have worked with Peter and have incorporated many of his procedures and methodologies into my own practice. I can recommend him without hesitation as an attorney I would rather work with than against, and one I would feel comfortable knowing that any client I referred to him would be well represented.
