“Mr. Liss is well respected by both the Judges and the prosecuting attorneys. He is professional, courteous, and has a truly phenomenal record of acquittals, dismissals, and reductions. He is personable, and sees you as a person and an individual going through a difficult time, not just as another client to make a buck off of. This guy and his office are top notch. I now carry his business card in my wallet, you know, “just in case”. The last thing I’ll mention; his rates are incredibly affordable, and he offers flexible payment plans that make him accessible to almost anyone. Do not think you can’t afford a top notch attorney, you can, his name is Peter, and you will be stoked he’s in your corner when you make that first appearance.” -Jim H.
“The DA went for my driver’s license for a 140+MPH reckless motorcycle riding and the judge was about to grant it. Peter immediately advised the judge and the DA to look into a specific case in their book. I kept my license… That moment was priceless as I knew I hired the right guy for the job.” -Ethan D.
“I first contacted Peter Liss after reading many of his great reviews. Being stuck in a difficult situation, I felt that along with his impressive credentials, he was best suited in helping me with my case. And I wasn’t wrong! From the start, Peter was very realistic about what the outcome of my case may be with the cards being stacked against me. But, with Peter I received the best possible outcome and could not be more thrilled! Not only that, but with Peter he resolved my situation quickly, efficiently, and confidently while walking me through and coaching me through the entire process. I am convinced that if I had chosen anyone else to handle my case I would still be stuck in a difficult situation. For that reason I am extremely thankful that I found Peter Liss!” -Kiana J.
“Peter gave me some of the best and most personal service I could have ever asked for. Not only did he take care of my case and get me the best results, he also cared about my educational life, ensuring I was doing well in school and meeting my goals. I felt cared for in every way which is definitely not something a lot of lawyers offer. He was promptly on time, quick with answers, and very knowledgeable about the law system. He also is quite well known in the Vista courthouse which is always a plus! The thing I love most about Peter as a lawyer is he will go above and beyond for you to ensure the best and most convenient process for you. He is so incredibly reliable and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants a lawyer who is personable and gets great results.” -Katelynn Birch
“If you are every between a rock and a hard place ~ Attorney Peter Liss is the only call to make. I was in a difficult position and had the cards stacked against me. Peter knew exactly how to handle a stern – aggressive prosecutor and was able to convince a judge (who was a former lead prosecutor) that this case was not what the DA made it out to be. Peter was always available to take my calls and emails. I was always informed of what was going to happen next. And when in Court, he had the Judge yelling to the DA that their case makes no sense! What lawyer can get that to happen? Only PETER LISS. He’s trusted by judges and that is what kept me home with my family rather than a prison cell”. -Jesse W.
“There are 3 criteria that I applied to the 5+ lawyers that I spoke with about my situation and they are as follows: 1) Experience 2) Knowledge 3) Intelligence -I’ve found that Peter Liss has all of these in spades. When I met with Peter last month, he had a level of experience that only comes with age and experience. I spoke with more than 5 lawyers and Peter’s calm and clear demeanor about my situation was very evident compared to his peers… Peter was also very knowledgeable. He knows the court system, the law and probably most important, the DA’s office… I found him to be self-aware of what he could do and would do and what he would/could not. His reasoning and thought process about how he would advocate for my situation showed me that he knew what he was talking about.” -Pax Kowalski
“I have used Peter Liss on several occasions to handle some very complicated legal issues and have never been disappointed. He is an outstanding criminal attorney [in Vista] and is more than capable of presenting the human side of your case. He is accomplished, dedicated and honest; he never oversells your situation, while offering you realistic options to your situation. But more importantly, it is his personal touch that goes beyond the case at hand; he continues to follow up well after the case is complete. I would recommend Peter to anyone in need of support when facing a criminal matter.” -Robert Parrott
“Peter Liss at Vista Criminal Law was exactly the attorney I needed. He helped get the minimum charges for a second drink driving charge involving a serious collision with another driver. Additionally, he completed everything for me while I was living in another country which made his services even more valuable. I was able to rebuild and forget about the charges while he orchestrated through the complexities of paperwork in California. Upon my return to California, he was able to get my charges expunged swiftly and keep my past mistakes out of sight for new employers.” -Andrew Elliott
“I cannot say enough positive words about Peter’s professional yet understanding manner. He could clearly see my husband and I were very scared and was able to put our fears to ease and walk us through our situation. Peter has a tremendous knowledge of the criminal justice system specifically in the Vista North County division. His knowledge, expertise and years of practice is what my husband and I credit for the outcome of our case. We cannot Thank Peter enough for his help and understanding. I urge anyone who finds themselves in need of a criminal defense attorney [in Vista] to call Peter Liss. Thank You again Peter a million times over. Without you our lives would be very, very different!”
“My son was charged with felony DUI. I interviewed several attorneys and settled on Peter because he told me that although there were no guarantees he would aggressively defend my son. My expectation was that my son would be spending at least a year or longer in jail or prison. Peter did exactly what he said he would do and my son did not serve any time in jail or prison. He was sentenced to 5 years’ probation. I truly believe had I chose a different attorney my son work have gone to jail. I give Peter my highest recommendation.” -Tom
“I was arrested for DUI. Peter won my DMV hearing, successfully getting DMV to set aside the suspension. I’ve been told it’s very rare to win DMV hearings and I believe it. This was also huge as I depend on driving for work. Pursuant to the DMV decision he was able to argue for a plea deal down to a “wet reckless.” This was another major win since my fine was reduced by about $1,000, my probation period was reduced from 5 years to 3 years, and my license was left in good standing. He communicated very clearly and knowledgeably with me, all the time letting me know where my case stood. He’s had my back through the entire process. If you need a good lawyer who can actually make a difference for you instead of just taking your money, Peter Liss is the man. I’d hire him again in a heartbeat, but I intend to stay out of trouble!”
“Peter Liss is an amazing lawyer! My original lawyer passed away and I wanted representation for my final hearing and dismissal after taking PC1000. While my situation was very unusual, Peter did not hesitate to take my case and appear at my dissmal hearing. In addition to making sure my case was dismissed, he requested that my initial charge be reduced to a misdemeanor as well as having the arrest record sealed and destroyed. All of which the judge did not want to grant because it was “getting dismissed anyways”. I wanted these extra steps taken so it could not hinder my future job applications (as some background tests will show arrests). Peter reasoned with the judge and ensured that we got what we wanted. He listened to what I wanted as well as making further suggestions to benefit my future. I would recommend Peter to anyone as he is respectful, diligent, and cares about each case.”
“I was facing a DUI felony car accident with bodily injury in the Vista Court System and was scared beyond belief… Peter was very resourceful and practical and truly did his best to ease me through the process. The outcome was great. My case got reduced to a DUI misdemeanor. Bodily injury was dropped from the charge. I had to serve no additional jail time… Peter does this everyday. It’s natural to him. He will give you the honest facts. I never doubted he would handle my case with professionalism and empathy and I am very grateful that he was able to get my charges reduced. Go with Peter. He’ll handle it!” -Tara
“I retained Peter Liss to fight a multiple felony DUI with injury charge(s) and he reduced it to a misdemeanor! He knows many judges and DA’s out there because he’s been a DA himself. I can’t think of anyone better you’d want on your side to fight charges.”
“Spirited, intelligent, articulate and frank. After interviewing no fewer than ten attorneys to take my felony case I happened upon this outstanding gentleman who made me feel 100% confident that he was the right person for my case… The thing that immediately jumped out at me was his honesty. There was no fake bravado or false promises from this person. After getting to know each other for a couple of weeks he was able to embody my desires and my passion into the case to a degree where I was truly represented. Everything about him and his team is professional and forthright. His team is extremely accommodating and will help you with whatever you need, whenever you need it!… It boils down to: If you want an attorney that just says the right things and coddles to your feelings then go with the other person. If you want someone who genuinely believes in his craft and your moral values then go with Peter Liss.” -Lorah
