An Excellent Attorney for Traffic Law Confusion
Mrs. Simmons was a pleasure to work with and also helped to ease my mind in a car accident case in 2017. She stood by my side and worked with me to make sure I understood what was going on, how I would proceed and even explained what my next steps should be. If I was to have another incident reguarding motor vehicles, she would most definently be the person I would turn to. Thank you Mrs. Simmons!

Thank you Peyton
I kept you in the loop and you kept what could have been a horrible outcome to one I can live with. I fully endorse Ms. Simmons. I paid 5,000K on attorney before and did not get near the results she gave me. I was a burn victim and not only did she do her due-diligence to mitigate the traps, she covered for my other attorney that lacked her care and skill. Thank you Ms. Simmons!

Outstanding service
Peyton was tremendous throughout my divorce process. She offerred timely advice, sound guidance and rapid service. She always answered my correspondence without delay. Throughout the process, her professionalism, knowledge and support provided me with piece of mind and reassurance that I was getting a fair settlement. She has my highest recommendation as a divorce attorney.

Child Custody Case
Peyton was excellent. She was every attentive to my needs and concerns. She was able to settle my case quickly and successfully. I hope to never need a custody attorney again but if I do at least I know exactly who to call.
