Stephanie Peterson embodies, professionalism, empathy and attention to detail. She is knowledgeable and committed to getting results that benefit her client. Her conduct and ethics are beyond reproach. Stephanie argues the law and maintains the integrity of the judicial system by not engaging in, or being drawn into, insults or mud slinging behaviors. Her sole focus is achieving the best results for you. At the end of my ordeal, I was proud to be represented by such a class act.
I have retained Stephanie's professional services multiple times over the last 7 or 8 years. She is my "go to" attorney for all Family Law related issues. She successfully helped my wife and I acquire the necessary custody needed to raise our niece. Our niece is now a happy well adjusted young adult. Further, Stephanie has represented separately a friend and a family member each through nasty custody/ divorce proceedings. I highly recommend Stephanie to all my friends, family, and employees.
Hired her for custody issues. Started out as a simple protection order for the child and turned into a absolute nightmare and still continues. Now the child is at risk, no more representation because the bill has surpassed 20k and only been able to pay about 8k thus far. Now recieving harassing phone calls about the bill and court without legal help in December. The child is the only one suffering from this horrible experience . The main topic of every visit was hours spent and how much money they want up front to continue. Once they get you hooked you are in big trouble. Everything had a charge attached to it ......phone, text, in person, messages etc. STAY AWAY
I felt like I had a true partner and an advocate with my personal injury case. She listened, did thorough research into the case and found legal avenues to help me. She understood and clearly communicated the legal strategy -- both pro and con. I would ask her to be my attorney again in a heartbeat.
Ms. Peterson but an issue to bed for us that had been dragging on for 2 years with our other attorney. She is agressive but respectful and professional. I was definately glad she was on our side.
She is in demand and therefore very busy and tightly booked. We take this as confirrmation that we have a great attorney but it can be difficult if you have an issue you need to talk with her right now. Her paralegal is great.
Stephanie has always been responsive, flexible, and realistic. As a result she has always helped me prevail. I strongly recommend her.
Stephanie and her staff were fastidious in tracking my investments during a divorce. Their attention to detail, understanding of investments, and willingness to track money from one place to the next were invaluable to me in the final outcome.
I had originally hired another woman attorney. She paid little attention to my case and it stalled in its early stages for months. I finally told her I needed to find someone else to manage my divorce. She recommended several attornies . I interviewed each of them and chose Stephanie.
Because of Stephanie'sexpertise in handling my divorce, I have continued to use her for other purposes. She is intelligent, an excellent communicator, highly respected by her peers, and quick to grasp a situation. I am grateful to have worked with Stephanie.
