Peter did all of my litigation when I was in sole-practice - about 1994 to 2000 and did an outstanding job. He continues in practice here in Kennebunk and enjoys an excellent reputation. If I have a litigation matter my firm can't handle he is my "go to" guy.

Peter always takes the time needed to make sure I understand what my options are, what the best course of action is and what will be happening in court or hearing room. Peter is prompt with his responses and has never made me feel foolish or ignorant for asking questions. In my opinion, how you are treated by your lawyer is as important as how he/she represents you. Peter makes me feel like his only client not a number on a file.

Peter was very knowledgeable and worked endlessly on my case. He thoroughly did his homework, was easy to get a hold of, and responded quickly to all matters. His price was fair, and he spoke with my loved ones to help keep them informed and assured. Above all he was respectful and pleasant to work with.

Mr. Clifford was always: considerate of all aspects of the case, provided realistic assessments of probable outcomes, totally focused on all details of my case,responded promptly to requests for information or requests from the court. His knowledge of the law and courtroom ability in cross examining witnesses was superb, leading to positive outcomes in every case or settlement. He also possesses a unique ability to "demystify" the legal process for his clients.

Peter was an absolutely top notch attorney. He was very professional in how he handled my case. It was very complex with motor vehicle injuries from my head to my feet which will have lasting affects for the rest of my life. He had unbelievable patience in handling this case. I received a very fair settlement and he advised me all the way in what was in my best interest. I can never thank him enough for how he handled my case. I was extremely impressed with his ethics.
