One of a Kind
Peggy was exceptional and professional at handling my case. She went above and beyond. I really appreciate how personable she was and how she listened to me and made feel as if my questions and concerns were extremely important and not just another client. Thank you, Peggy, for representing me and doing an amazing job. I appreciate your honesty and commitment to my case.

We reached out to Peggy in a desperate situation before the home was sold. She was very helpful in the process and communication with her was easy. She was able to help us and the judge stopped the sale. I had great recommendation and now I highly recommend her. Thank you so much Peggy.

Very pleasant experience
I enjoyed working with Peggy Urbaneja. She assisted me in the closing of my home. I've had several closings in the past and this was seamless. She answered my emails and texts so quickly and I never had to go looking for her. I will definitely make use of her legal service again.

Peggy's profile was everything and more.
I found Peggy on the Internet, read her profile and immediately knew I had to call. From the first call to Peggy I was blessed that I talked to her personally, she assured me that she could take care of the problem with my 86 year old friend who had considerable Credit Card debt. She went with me to the rehab to meet with her, explained everything she had to do and the cost was beyond reasonable. She put records in place quickly. Later came back to my condo for information on her laptop with my friend. In December the court date was set, she picked up my friend and personally drove her to the court. She later notified me that the case had been resolved with no further cost. Now how many attorneys do that for their clients? She is now my "go to Attorney" Later she took care of a will issue, that too was taken care of quickly at little expense. The word "integrity" is Peggy. I have already referred her to another friend for service of doing a will. Definitely will refer her when I"m asked "do you have a lawyer you trust" for sure I'll give then her card. For those reading this.. call her, she'll fight for you. Work Ethics amazing. She is now my "go to attorney."

A lawyer you can trust to FIGHT for your rights
I called at 6:30 pm not realizing the time so I hung up with no message and decided I would call next day. Within 5 minutes, I had a return call from Peggy asking if someone at this number needed her. I was amazed she wanted to hear of my circumstance after hours; I proceed to tell her my situation and my plight. She listened intently at that time, not asking that I call her back in the morning. She LISTENED, was very diplomatic, caring, intelligent, knowledgeable and then advised she would be able to assist me, giving me specifics on my options and not answering MY questions with more questions. Like many others, I am sure, I had a bad experience with another lawyer and all he did to me was answer my questions with more questions and I never wound up getting any answers from him, only the run around. Peggy is 180 degrees from that. She returns calls and emails timely and she keeps you informed on the progression of your case. You can give her your problems and take a deep breath of relief, knowing she will do all she can to fight for you. You don't have to hound her for updated status information or send 10 emails hoping to get 1 response out of it. She informs you, before you have to go tracking her down, of any updated information about your own case! THAT, is worth a million bucks. She is worth a million to me right now for what she did for me.... The woman cares, plain and simple. She is my lawyer now and in the future; she has earned that trust. I would highly recommend Peggy; you would be most fortunate to have her on your side.
