Charles Peterson’s reviews

Having you on our team has been the best find yet!

I do want to proceed with view preservation. The coastline view as described will be adequate. I am glad they are including the bridge view as well. Can you help with the letter and view preservation application submittal?  Having you on our team has been the best find yet!

Charlie did all that he promised and more, ending in a most satisfactory result, for all parties I might add.

He has my whole-hearted recommendation.

Truth prevails, but it also helps to have an excellent attorney.

My family and I had a contentious real estate matter that needed an attorney’s professional advice. Charlie Peterson came to our aid. Not only did he alleviate many of our concerns, but he gave us sound advice and guidance. Charlie was conscientious and prompt in returning emails and phone calls, as well as making himself available for counsel. He was also aware of our desire to keep costs down. I would highly recommend Charlie. It was comforting to have an attorney with such integrity and compassion.

Complete View restoration in Lunada Bay

Mr. Peterson suggested which steps to take in order to get my ocean view restored which was obstructed by a PVE city tree. Mr. Peterson responded promptly to my calls and emails. He also followed up on the status of the proceedings. I highly recommend his services.

Charles Peterson really makes a difference!

Recently, my neighbor submitted remodeling plans to the city planner. The proposed addition was going to block my ocean views and close in my backyard which would have undoubtedly compromised the comfort and value of my home. The city planner was not helpful and advised that the plans met city guidelines. I was alarmed at how nonchalant they were. I called Mr. Peterson desperate for guidance. He was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and gave me some great advice. Mostly, he was there for me and gave me hope that the issue could be resolved. In the end, we came to a great compromise. I highly recommend him to others in the same position trying to protect their views, property value, and the comfort of their homes.

My best decision was to hire Mr. Peterson

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mr. Peterson to solve a longstanding tree issue that was blocking a majority of the view from my property. I had tried, on friendly terms, to get the issue resolved myself but was not making much progress. I decided to engage Mr. Peterson to advise me on next steps since I had been unable to make any progress on my own. This was the best decision I made…he came to my home and assessed the situation and gave me several options on how I could proceed. I cannot stress highly enough how important it is to have a plan before emotions get escalated, which often thwarts any progress. Mr. Peterson took what was a stressful situation and calmly laid out the reality of possible outcomes which allowed me to proceed with a more practical approach. Fortunately, I was able to put a plan in place and I now have my incredible view back!

Great Experience!

My husband and I feel extremely fortunate to have had Charlie Peterson involved in our view restoration action. Six months ago we were in the throes of a contentious action relating to a “classic view obstruction”. Charlie’s professional handling, compassionate advice and astute understanding of the law and the PVE Home Owner Association’s rules made all the difference in our ability to resolve the dispute to our full satisfaction. Charlie’s mediation skills are superb. We thoroughly endorse Charlie Peterson.

Five homeowners regain their ocean views. Thank you Charles!

Charles helped us regain our beautiful coastline and white water views that we had lost to overgrown and untrimmed foliage over the years.  Our absentee neighbors were not willing to trim their trees even at our expense.  The obstructed view impacted 5 properties and we had worked hard over the years to get some results.  Finally, Charles came to the rescue and now we are all enjoying the ocean views that we fell in love with years ago when making the purchase of our homes.

Very pleased with the review of my case & the advice that I was given

I called Charles late on a Thursday and he answered many of my questions over the phone about a view issue that I had at my home in Rolling Hills Estates.  I met with him the following day in person at his office where he thoroughly reviewed my case and gave me very helpful guidance on how to proceed in dealing with my neighbor. I was very pleased.

Forever grateful for his sage advice

After nearly forty years of renting to tenants, for the first time we needed advice on how to deal with a difficult tenant. The tenant was clearly looking to find a problem she could base a suit on. Charlie was able to advise us on how to respond and what to expect, and walk us through the process. We are forever grateful for his sage advice.
