  • Tammi J Driver

    As a fellow adoption attorney in the community, I endorse Peggy Senentz without reservation. Peggy practices with the highest level of ethics and competence. She is a skilled attorney and strong advocate. Most of all, Peggy understands adoption, not only the complex legal issues involved, but also the dynamics and clinical issues involved. Peggy does not take any short cuts and she makes sure that birth parents have access to their own counselor and attorney. It is a pleasure when I have the opportunity to be involved in a case with Peggy because I know the case will be managed competently and with the utmost respect for all parties involved.
