After 8 years of divorce proceedings and 2 other attorneys I can finally sleep at night. Barbara not only knows the law but, with 30 years experience, is an expert in "real life" application of the law. She is in front of everything to the extent that I don't have to worry. Barbara does an excellent job in terms of being prepared for court appearances and is solid under any circumstances during hearings. I can't recommend Barbara highly enough.
I retained Ms. Peyton to represent me as my attorney. I also had the pleasure of watching her in court on another case . She has a demanding demeanor, and gets what she asks for. She is a very professional Attorney.
Ms. Peytons' Secretary that I spoke with, was also extremely nice, and very professional, and easy to speak with.
Barbara is good at being a divorce attorney and I am pleased to recommend her to you. She comes prepared and that alone can yield amazing results in court! In retrospect, I am lucky she was my first and only lawyer for my long, drawn out divorce issues. She has solid legal knowledge as well as a caring way about her. Her understanding of my case and professional manner of presenting the information has helped me deal with an uncooperative x-spouse who has had multiple attorneys over the years. It's not pretty! Very recently she represented me at a hearing and she knew the law and she knew the issues and the judge gave her exactly what I wanted which was far more than I could expect. Her preparedness made the difference. I wholeheartedly recommend her.
I first contacted Ms. Peyton's office informally to discuss my divorce matters. At the time of this conversation, I was impressed with the responses she had in order to clean up and finalize my divorce. I filed for divorce in 2008 and had gone through two attorneys without any finalization of my divorce status. Upon retaining Ms. Peyton towards the end of 2011, I was granted single status within a few months in March 2012.
Ms. Peyton is all of the above: trustworthy, responsive, knowledgeable and has kept me well informed. The difference between Ms. Peyton and other attorney's that I have dealt and talked with is that she understanding, she puts herself in your place, she works hard on her cases and most important, she focused!
My case went to trial and Ms. Peyton and her office staff were available to answer questions at any time. If you find yourself in the middle of a battle, you feel that there is no end to dealing with your ex, etc., etc., call Ms. Peyton! You'll find that not only does she have a great personality, she knows how and what to do to handle your matters correctly!
Ms Peyton has been our company attorney for well over 20 years. She is very knowledgeable.professional, and easy to work with. She keeps you well informed and responses to your calls. Comes to court well prepared.
I find Barbara to be very personable, professional, and easy to communicate with. She looks out for my interest and is a good negotiator. Even when receiving disparaging remarks from the opposing attorney, she responded in a very professional manner.
I feel very comfortable having Barbara handle my case.
My wife filed for divorce and soon her attorney's letters were coming fast and furious with demands. I was forced to seek counsel and chose Ms. Peyton for proximity to where I lived.
I soon discovered Ms. Peyton was a dedicated, open and honest individual. Her candid disucssions with me allowed me to make intelligent decisions and her support has helped me get through this divorce.
Her clarity in discussing options, and actions for me to take eased my fears and trepedation about what was happening. SHe and her staff walked me thorugh the steps.
Although the dicorve is not finalized (and soon will be) I would gladly recommend Ms. Peyton to anyone needing experience, honesty and efficiency in a divorce settlement situtation.
Without her guidance and assistance, I would be a basket case by now.
