Good legal advice that I followed
I needed Mr Peacock once before when he came through for me and helped me when I believed all was lost. He told me not to talk if I was ever arrested. I was recently wrongfully arrested and remembered Stan’s advice.. When I was finally able to call Stan, it was my friend who answered that phone. He was professional and direct. Made recommendations that I immediately followed. Timely suggestions that took the burden out of the criminal matter and helped me take first steps in civil litigation. Hearing Stan’s voice and answering his questions gave me clarity and provided peace in a confusing and extremely stressful time.

Above and beyond!
Awesome. Stan peacock and team made a miracle and negotiated probation with no court appearance on an arrest. He was always available when I reached out. Not enough thanks to show my appreciation.

OUTSTANDING ATTORNEY!!!!
Mr. Peacock and Mrs. Kelly are absolutely amazing. I have used them for numerous things over the past year and everything they told me we could get done got done... Stan Peacock has very reasonable prices and always took the time to talk to me, even if it was just about my probation officer giving me a hard time and me needing to just let it out. I will never hire another attorney in the panhandle. Very professional. I honestly couldn’t say enough for all that Stan and Kelly have done for me. I will never forget them.

Best decision I could have made
I was forced after receiving divorce papers that were unacceptable to find a defense attorney to represent me. After careful review of local attorneys, Mr Peacock's resume and experience made me choose him. He was thorough and candid about all aspects of what he required from me and what he believed the avenues my case could travel. His team, Ms Fogarty and Ms Meeks, were knowledgeable and friendly and always got back to me promptly. I'm sure my lack of knowledge in the area was a small burden on them but they successfully represented me until an outcome was reached,(much sooner than I expected), that I found fair and just. I would highly recommend Stan Peacock and his office to anyone in need of such services. Im very glad I chose them.

Winning Team
I retained Mr. Peacock as my divorce attorney and it was without a doubt one of my best decisions. Right off the bat, he sat me down and looked me in the eyes then handed me a plethora of information he had gathered over the years on critical “Do’s and Don’ts” that helped me maintain my sanity throughout the entire process. As we journeyed down this, what I referred to as “Highway Through Hell” of required information that had to be gathered and put together, Mr. Peacock along with his Legal Assistant Mrs. Fogarty Masterfully helped me along the way. They both have this amazing calmness and experience about them that just takes you by the hand and leads you through it all. Their down to earth and no ‘’BS” approach to all of this is so comforting and makes it easy to understand. There was no time in this process that I felt unsure, confused, or bewildered by any of it at all. I highly recommend this team of professionals who are second to none who hold true to the highest values putting their service before themselves and maintain excellence in all that they do. I now refer to them as my friends.

Honest lawyer
Very honest and trustworthy sounds crazy. Mr Peacock and Mrs Kelly have went above and beyond my expectations. And like I said very honest . He gave me a refund of some of my retainer that he didn’t earn just like he said he would. Just good down to earth honest people.

He took the time to build my trust
My legal matter was thrust upon me suddenly and wrongfully. I was terrified and did not know who I could trust. My fear affected my vocal chords which made it extremely difficult for me to speak about the events of my case. During our first meeting, Mr. Peacock took the time to ask me pertinent questions in such a way that made it possible for me to speak so that I could provide him with the information he needed. He did not have to build my trust to get the job done - but build my trust he did! It took over a year for my case to be resolved. Having Mr. Peacock in my corner gave me my life back. I will hire him again if I should ever need legal services in the future.

EXCEPTIONAL!
Mr. Peacock was absolutely the most helpful and professional lawyer I have had the pleasure of hiring, and there have been several in my lifetime, both for business, and personal law. He helped with a very delicate case re: divorce & child support, across state lines. Very fun stuff. This case took a couple years to resolve, but he, and his great assistant were in constant contact with updates, questions, etc., and were always accommodating with my schedule and availability. I would recommend him to anyone needing an attorney.

Experienced professional attorney without a doubt!!!
I spoke with Mr. Peacock about some trouble I found myself in. Mr Peacock and I had a consultation. He gave me his time. His sincere opinions on my situation. My future actions that could be taken. Then he never tried to make a quick buck off my hardship as there wasn't any further legal steps we could take. It was refreshing to see high values and etiquette still exist in attorneys. His honesty and his experience were undeniable. I highly recommend Mr. Peacock!

Great attorney and all around good person
Mr Peacock represented my son and nobody could have done a better job. He made sure he got the help he needed instead of prison time. I would recommend him to anyone.

Outstanding Lawyer and Best legal assistant
As my attorney, Mr. Peacock and his legal assistant Ms. Fogarty was very proactive in protecting my rights and in providing quick and reliable feedback and answers to questions. Additionally Jon displayed excellent negotiation skills in settling my case. I highly recommend him to others based on my experience as a client." Larry, a Family law client "My child's well being and stability was everything to me, and when I hired Jon, I instantly felt and knew he understood that. Jon is extremely knowledgeable on the law and very strategic with his cases. The more and more trust I put into him and his firm throughout my case, I was amazed at the results. He truly cares about his clients and fights for what is important to them Mr. Peacock was highly compassionate, helpful and attentive to my legal information needs. He was very quick to respond to my inquiries and provided multiple options of solid advice and counsel." Brian, a divorce client Would hire Mr. Peacock again in a heartbeat, he gets 5 stars in my book. He also has the nicest legal assistant in town. Ms. Fogarty talks to you like she’s been your friend for years. If you need a Divorce, Criminal Defense Attorney & Counselor, Certified Family Mediator hire Mr. Peacock. Thank you again, Brian.

Straight forward, honest, ehtical.
Mr. Peacock was recommended to me by a colleague in South Florida to assist me in a case in his area. Out of the others that were recommended, he clearly demonstrated the exact knowledge, wisdom, and ethics to clear my situation. He was brutally honest with me, told me things I did not want to hear, but it had to be done in order for me to develop a better understanding of what lied ahead, I am glad he did because he took me under his wing, mentored me, and verbally told me what was at stake. He was very thorough in the possible outcomes and fought real hard to clear my name. His heart is in the right place because he really cared about my case and did outstanding job in the very short time he had to prepare for my Civil Case. I highly recommend him.

Highly Recommended!
I found Mr. Peacock and his assistant Mrs. Fogarty to be extremely helpful and proficient when I was going through a lengthy divorce process. After speaking with him at my initial consultation, I knew that I could depend on and trust him in navigating through my case. Both Mr. Peacock and Mrs. Fogarty's patience, professionalism, and knowledge were of the highest caliber, and I would recommend them to anyone seeking legal council!

There is NO better lawyer. Period.
INCREDIBLE lawyer and an even more incredible human being. He works with skill, intelligence, intuitiveness, talent and positive attitude. He's ethical, honest, understanding, fair and tough. He has great integrity and I recommend you not go anywhere near a legal matter without at least speaking with this gentleman first. Mr. Peacock is, by far, the best attorney I could have possibly found. He really is that good. I must say, during my 2 year ordeal he was the only person I knew I could trust. If you want the BEST lawyer on your side, go no further. Email him. Call him. NOW. In areas where he couldn't represent me, he knew the best one to call for me. My case was long, scary, difficult and emotionally trying. Without Mr. Peacock, I'd never have come out feeling as good as I did. Not to mention relieved. The outcome couldn't have been better. I believe that even if I were to lose a case, I'd rather lose with him next to me. I'd rather lose with a winner. But I WON with a winner. Thank you Mr. Peacock!!!

Awesome!
Having someone you know you can trust to help you when you are in a bad situation is so very important. Mr. Peacock has been there to give excellent advice for our family--over the years. It is comforting to know that you can rely on his advice and his many years of experience for the right answers. You never know when your going to need an attorney, but when you do need an attorney you need a “good one.” Mr. Peacock, thank you so much for all your professionalism, excellent communication, and being a phone call away whenever we have needed some good advice! You are amazing and so easy to talk to. You get things taken care of without delay with special attention to detail. Your caring manner is so appreciated. Thank you for your representation in getting the citation dismissed! You are a winner!

Alimony Solution
Mr. Peacock's experience, expertise, and honesty were outstanding in the case and process of an alimony reduction request by the ex-husband. During this case, the ex-husband's attorney used unnecessary rudeness and unprofessional tactics towards me. At the end of this case, both the ex-husband and his attorney were unsatisfied with each other due to lack of communication in the process, something which never occurred between Mr. Peacock and myself. I was content and satisfied with the work and professionalism that my lawyer executed throughout the case as well as bringing the best results to the table. Thank you Mr. Stanley Peacock.

Mr Peacock's advice saved me time, money, and an incorrect citation!
Mr. Peacock was of great help when I presented my situation to him concerning a confusing and incorrect traffic citation. Upon a review and history of the event explained to Mr. Peacock, he was able to not just advise me of the wrong action by the police officer by making an error on the citation; but also assisted me in knowing how to handle the problem at the clerk of court's office. When the situation was presented to the clerk, she also noticed a discrepancy and proceeded to call the officer who said that she would be arriving in shortly to correct the traffic citation. The officer noticed that we knew about the mistakes made by her and in addition to our desire to follow-up with a judge, she said that everything was going to be dropped. She stated: "Just forget it, its dropped, it never happened."
