I was referred to Andy Rahtz by a mutual friend to review a situation that I was told by other firms would be fruitless. Right from the start, Andy gave me incredibly helpful advice. He explained things in a way that was easy to understand and gave me hope. Extremely knowledgeable in all the different facets of law surrounding my business case, he answered any questions I had quickly, courteously, and (just as important 😉) accurately. I always felt he always had my best interest in mind and made it a priority to keep me in the loop with the progress being made on my case. I highly recommend Andy and the team at Platt & Westby! Thank you for helping me get justice!read more

RahtzHe gave me his undivided attention and seemed to genuinely care. In my experience, it has been very tedious and daunting to begin a conversation with an attorney, especially one at a law firm with other partners, etc. That is, usually law firms won't lend an ear, it seems, unless you pay $100-300 initial consulting fee, which is basically a $15 overview of your case and whether they think it's worthwhile$$$.However, not only was I surprised to see Attorney Rhatz offer a no-cost consultation, but he also kept it "real." He advised me with information that even seemed to work against his assumed interest in profit (i.e., he didn't try to exploit me for money), such as by providing me with self-help research suggestions, and even helped me put together an outline for my case.He didn't want me to lose more money winning with him (he didn't want me to spend so much money to retain him, that even if winning the case, I'd still be at a net negative dollar-loss).He gave me his undivided attention, asked questions that showed he actually paid attention, and was very resourceful with directing me towards credible sources of jurisprudence.What's more, is that he didn't throw me out after 15 minutes, but rather stayed with me until he felt I was sufficiently informed with the material and answers to questions to send me along my way.This man even read through all my notes and connected with me as a person.I also appreciated his aggressive, but civil, nature towards vanquishing the countering party. He is strategic, he is prepared to preempt the countering party's legal arguments by first calling them out himself, and sparks reassurance that he is sedulously and astutely on the case.Obviously, I would recommend attorney R Andrew Rahtz for the aforementioned reasons, despite only meeting with him one time on an preliminary more

I wrote in to a law message board asking about a step in my case and Mr. Peter Westby replied with some sound advice. I emailed him to thank him for his advice and shared with him I was not being represented. He offered to meet with me to go over my case and possibly about representing me. In our meeting he allowed me to give him all the details of my case and he spent a good amount of time offering advise and insight to the law pertaining to my situation. Mr. Westby was very patient and allowed me to ask multiple questions and was thorough in his answers. Because I live 2 hours away and in a different county (Tucson), and because my case will most likely go to trial and the cost of travel for him to represent me I am unable to retain Mr. Westby as my attorney. However, if this were to be taking place in Phoenix I would hire him in a heartbeat. I appreciate his willingness to talk with me and spend his time assuring me about the steps i'll need to take in my case. He was very prompt in his reply to my question and then for scheduling a phone conference to go over a case he prob knew he wouldn't be able to take given the more

Meet with Peter today and was very impressed. I had a large tile job that was done improperly and was not sure if a lawsuit made economic sense. Peter was straightforward and told me that if the contractor did not have sufficent assets, a lawsuit would be risky because a favorable court decision might not result in a payout. I now know what I need to do thanks to more

Testimonials from Other Satisfied Clients


My husband and I are very grateful for the free legal consult from your law firm. There are no words to describe the relief and renewed confidence that we felt upon receiving counsel from one of your attorneys. He allayed our deep concerns (I was panic stricken!) by explaining the real problem then arming us with a simple plan to correct the issues and presented two possible outcomes that we can prepare for. My real estate agent and our broker both asked for his number! I also took the liberty of MMS'ing his business card to my immediate family and closest friends because all good things must be shared. Please keep up the outstanding service, you guys are quite frankly THE BEST!! Many Thanks.

Attention to Detail

I have had a real estate and an estate planning case with Platt and Westby and I found their attention to detail to be excellent and their legal service to be very competent. Their fees were reasonable. They were responsive and promptly returned all of my telephone calls. I was pleased with their representation and would use them in future matters.

Counsel at this firm was more than helpful but HONEST as to my best options. They had my future at heart when discussing strategy with me instead of their bottom line like some other firms. Platt & Westby is reliable and trustworthy. Thank you.

Honesty, Integrity, and Wonderful Sense of Community

I have known Mr. Westby and his family since I was in middle school. He has always impressed me with his honesty, integrity, and wonderful sense of community. I would trust him whole heartedly with any legal matters. Coming from a family full of lawyers, and being married to one, I can say I know a good one when I see one.

Best Attorney Ever!

I had a huge problem with getting someone off my deed to my house and Mr. Peter Westby was my attorney. He was very caring and took care of the problem for me, I was in such a emotional turmoil that I don't know what I would have done without him. I wish I would have found him earlier, he will be my attorney for everything in the future! He is very respectful, a great communicator, and guides you will all his great knowledge. Peter saved my house and gave me peace of mind, best attorney ever!

Thank You

Dale and myself had a pleasurable meeting with Mr. Westby today November 30, 2012. The office has a soft cordial welcoming atmosphere. Mr. Westby is a cordial person.

Mr. Westby's response to our objective (loan modification) questions was apparent with his cordial personality and willingness to listen to our concern. After listening to my husband and me, his advise and answers respectfully well taken into consideration for our circumstances gave us comfort that we were with a trusted attorney. Mr. Westby answers to our objective gave us more room and venues to explore and examine for a better outcome.

All questions and doubts we had about loan modifications were resolved and well taken. Thank you.

We will surely recommend you to our friends and acquaintances.

Professionalism and Expertise

About one year ago I had a huge struggle going on with my house situation. Being upside down on the mortgage, though current on payments – was not sure which path to take. How could I survive this crunch? All expenses going up; income not! The bank told me they could not help me with a loan mod as long as I was current – so I stopped making my payments which ruined my credit. Once I had missed 4 payments they would talk to me and the process of ‘loan modification’ began.

After a very long process and discouragement, I decided to meet with you to discuss some options and your opinion on what might be the best road to go. With your encouragement and an offer (after a very long time) from the bank for the loan mod which would lower my interest and payments just a bit – I did decide to accept the loan modification.

Your professionalism and expertise totally put me at ease and from the time we had our meeting to the time I signed the papers and making the commitment to the loan modification, I felt completely safe with the decision I made. Keeping my home and getting back on track with it was the right thing to do.

Mr. Westby, I appreciate you taking the time to meet with me and supported me in making the decision to keep my home. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Extensive Knowledge

I have known Peter Westby for over 20 years. I believe he has extensive knowledge in quite a number of areas of the law, and I really appreciate the helpful guidance and advice he has provided. I regard him as being very carding about a person's concerns and needs. I wouldn't hesitate in choosing him for legal services in the future if the need were to arise within one of his areas of practice.

Highly Ethical and Caring

Attorney Peter Westby has provided me with legal services on several occasions over the years. Each time, he has been tremendously helpful. It has been obvious to me that he has great knowledge of the law. I also regard him as being highly ethical and caring. Great qualities in a lawyer! I saw him in action in a tough court case too. He was skillful, persuasive, and efficient. In my opinion, he is an excellent lawyer. The services he provided have been absolutely outstanding. I consider myself fortunate to have found him and to have benefitted from his professional services.

5 STARS! Platt & Westby hands down is the best choice of firms here in the Valley. I engaged with their firm and they handled my case with complete sincerity and respect. THEY ANSWER THE PHONES AND RETURN VMS! (which from prior experience at other firms is a rare thing to find). My case turned out beautifully and I could not be happier overall with the level of service and treatment I received.
