"There are a number of attorneys out there, but not everybody is trustworthy, knowledgeable, or responsive. I have been Mr. Tovey's client for about nine months, and he was the best lawyer I have ever experienced."

Peter Tovey attorney
member wealth counsel


I represent clients in immigration law, estate planning, and criminal defense matters.

My passion for immigration law comes from being raised in New Zealand, Tahiti, and Hawaii and having lived several years overseas. As a first-generation immigrant, I understand the importance of seeking legal assistance when applying for immigration benefits such as Lawful Permanent Residency and U.S. Citizenship. I enjoy representing clients from all over the world and from different walks of life.

I believe in providing competent, cost effective legal representation. I am often sought out by former clients to advocate for them again in other areas of the law. I became a shareholder at Hillsboro Law Group PC in January 2016. I clerked for the Multnomah District Attorney's Office while attending Lewis and Clark Law School.

Outside of the office, I enjoy the outdoors, spending time with my family, ethnic music, cooking and sports.
