Focused OnFiduciary & Business Litigation

Who We Are

The Law Office of George O. Peterson, PLC is a boutique litigation firm in Northern Virginia. While our attorneys have a broad range of litigation experience, we believe that practice concentration is an integral part of successful outcomes in legal disputes.

As a result, we have chosen to build a practice which concentrates on four precise areas of law: Trusts & Estates Litigation, Beneficiary Designation Disputes, Business Litigation and Disputes, and Contested Guardianships & Conservatorships. Our focus and knowledge in these areas helps to ensure that we are able to provide our clients with exceptional representation.

ResourcesYour Questions Answered

How much will my case cost?

It depends. Generally speaking all of the cases we handle are billed on an hourly basis, and the hours we need to devote to your file will depend heavily on a number of factors including, the complexity of your case, the actions taken by opposing counsel and how the ultimate result in your case is achieved. After we have a better understanding of the issues involved in your specific case, we will be able to better estimate your potential expenses. We believe that a cost benefit analysis is essential to quality representation and we invite you to contact us to discuss your case further so we can help you assess the costs and benefits of engaging in litigation.

How long will the process of litigation take?

The timetable for cases pending in federal court is often times shorter than the timetable for matters pending in state court. In state court, cases are typically tried to conclusion within one year. The complexity of your individual case may shorten or lengthen this timetable considerably and we would welcome the opportunity to discuss the details of your case with you to better estimate your anticipated timetable.

Do you offer free consultations?

In order to better understand your case and determine if we can assist you, we will meet with you briefly to discuss your case. This initial meeting is free of charge. If we believe that we can assist you with your case, we will provide you with a written retainer letter that outlines our fees and expectations. Learn More.
