After being in a major injury crash, and undergoing facial reconstruction surgery, I knew I needed a good attorney to handle the case against the propane truck driver who had rear ended my vehicle at a stop. From the initial interview to the final settlement, Sara Peters was always knowledgeable, responsive, and kept me informed about the progress of the case. Most cases are settled before going to trial, and that was the situation in my case. In determining the value of my case involving permanent injury, Sarah did extensive research into similar cases, and discussed the results with me. She kept me informed of the progress of settlement talks, and I was impressed with her skills as my advocate. In the end, I feel that she got me a good settlement, and I can highly recommend Sara Peters as a personal injury lawyer.
I contacted Sara Peter's office for a wrongful death suit on behalf of my brother and myself. Sara layed everything out for us, step-by-step so we would know what to expect. She kept us up-to-date of her findings and other depositions related to our case. She notified me months in advance for action items as our case progressed. She candidly couched my daughter and I for our depositions as my brother is out of the country on active duty. We trusted her sound advice and our depositions went well. She also prepared me for mediation. From the beginning, she answered all our questions thoughtfully and respectfully. I never felt that my questions were unworthy of her time, or unjustified. She is knowledgeable, stratighfoward, professional and compasionate. She looks at all angles of a situation so as to be one step ahead and fully prepared. I saw her work ethic and I was thankful that she represented our suit. I cannot praise her and her staff enough.
Litigation was my final choice to resolve a matter with a utility company. I was referred to Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger by a friend in Chicago that said they were both professional and effective. After meeting initially with Mike Kelly I came away with a clear and concise understanding of what to expect. He laid out a plan to achieve the most reasonable outcome. Over the next two years his associate Sara Peters worked diligently to gather the necessary information and file the necessary documents to achieve that very goal. Her resolve allowed me to first and foremost settle out of court. The result was more than I expected and far better than I had hoped for. Sara Peters' youth was never indicative of her knowledge, preparedness, or composure. I would gladly refer Sara Peters and Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger again in the future.
