    Hired Attorney

    If I could say one thing about Brandy's handling of my case, it's that you feel secure with her on your side. You can tell that she takes pride in defending her clients. The motion to dismiss my case dessimated the opposing counsel's motion and the case was dismissed without prejudice and without need for oral arguments. Another thing that I liked about Brandy is that she doesn't tell you what you want to hear, she lays out the case from all fronts warts and all and that assures that you go in with a plan A, B, and C. Sadly, I've had experience with other lawyers billing excessively, Brandy has always been fair. She doesn't nickle and dime you, look lawyers aren't cheap but Brandy's rates are fair, more importantly I feel like she is honest with her billable hours (which sadly has not been the case with other lawyers me and my wife has used). I highly recommend her. (Note: my matter was a real estate dispute and she also has written a contract for sale of a business and sublease which was very well written and ratified without incident)

    Consulted Attorney

    Paid initial consultation fee. Talked over the phone for about 30minutes. When email for further questions, no response. But she would represent me if I pay to retain her. Did not move forward.

    Brandy Ann Peeples’s response: “We as lawyers only have our knowledge to sell. After 2 calls to my office on 10/19/15, you and I spoke on 10/20/15, and I forwarded you the Initial Consultation Agreement. I accepted payment for an hour of my time in accordance with that agreement. Note that my office normally schedules consultations at least 1 week from the date of inquiry, because my schedule fills quickly. Although I typically do not provide an immediate consultation, I agreed to do so because you had just arrived from out of town and needed immediate assistance. Thus, I rendered a legal opinion upon extremely short notice-halting work on other pressing matters in the process. My Initial Consultation Agreement provides in pertinent part: "In your initial consultation, you and the attorney will identify the type of case you have, the key issues, and the options you may have under law. You and the attorney will discuss whether the firm will represent you, what the representation could involve, and the amount of the initial retainer deposit that would be required *** Please be advised that the Firm has not agreed to represent you in connection with your matter unless you have signed a separate Agreement of Retainer, which can be provided to you after the initial consultation has concluded. If you or the Firm fail to sign this contract for legal services, an attorney-client relationship between you and the firm will not extend beyond the initial consultation." Your paid consultation included: (1) reviewing your contract documents, which included 12 documents and an inspection report (2) researching applicable Maryland case law and land records, and (3) holding a telephone conference with you. The aforementioned work took more than one hour's time. However, as a courtesy to you, I capped my consultation fee at 1 hour. Unfortunately, as I explained to you, you were in an unfavorable position with little or no legal recourse. I also explained to you your potential liability exposure (including liability for the other side's attorneys' fees) and gave you your options. That my legal advice was dead accurate and not welcomed to you does not warrant a negative review because you sought legal representation outside the scope of the initial consultation. Following the consultation on 10/20/15, you sent me an email stating the opposing side's position with your question "Can you help us out?" I responded on 10/20 and again on 10/21 indicating your options. You then sent me an email as to my opinion on what it would take to resolve this matter, to which I responded -- "these scenarios are fact-specific and I cannot begin to guess as to what it would take to settle this matter without more information." No response was received from you following that email. Although, I had already provided you with a legal opinion, I did respond to all of your emails on 10/20 and 10/21, even though you had not retained me beyond the initial consultation. That I did not provide you with legal representation or opinions beyond what was agreed in our Initial Consultation Agreement is not a reflection of my legal abilities or my billing practices, which among my colleagues are known to be extremely client-friendly and fair. I'm sorry your expectations fell short; however, I stand by the legal opinions given. That you would give a negative review because you expected free and continuing legal advice beyond the initial consultation without the signing of a formal Agreement of Retainer is disappointing. I can assure you that most of my colleagues -- especially with your type of matter - would not have been as generous as I have been with you in the billing department (multiple phone calls, multiple emails, and the actual review and research would customarily be billed at .1 of an hour rounded up). I provided immediate and accurate advice -- you wanted something for nothing. I'm sorry that affected your ability to provide a fair review.”

    OMG. I contacted her office. She asked me to fax her the case papers so can review and get back to me with a game plan. Then she did some research on her own and called me back for a 20 minutes Free Consultation over the phone. She covered all the bases for my defense. On the phone it was me who got tired and wanted to hang up not her. She gave me her devoted dedicated diligent time. Unlike other greedy lawyers who after talking to you in few minutes will say $ 5000 retainer fee bla bla and they hang up. Not Brandy. You feel like she is your friend from get go out to help you not empty your pocket. I would recommend her hands down, Yes Yes Yes
