I got a phone call response quick after leaving my initial email message. She was kind and understanding. She gave me excellent advice. I will use her services again should we need legal help. Thanks

After reviewing different attorneys I chose Peggy because she had been practicing law for many years and in particular because she had a background working for Social Security and knew how things work and finally because she was a woman. I feel that all of my "reasoning" was well founded and am glad that I went with my "reasoning"! I first spoke with Peggy by phone and explained my situation to her and she gave me her direct, honest and open opinion. She acknowledged my case would be difficult, but that she felt I had a strong case, but felt her representation could have a winning outcome. I was glad I found her, she took my case and was involved from the very initial (she helped me from filing my initial application) stage all the way through. Many people don't hire an attorney until they've been denied at least once or twice. I wanted an attorney to help and represent me from the very start. She is very busy, but her staff is very knowledgeable, helpful, thorough, communicative and Peggy was available for questions or concerns if ever needed/wanted. It took a while to get to the final stages of my case and of course I was very worried, but Peggy came through. She met with myself and my family (for their input, since they were around, had to help me and knew first-hand my situation) and reviewed everything with detail, allayed my worries and concerns and from the hip told us what she felt and thought could happen etc. If I had any "advice" I would give anyone is to hire an attorney when you are thinking of first applying (it helps). If avoidable, do not wait until you are denied at any point of the process.

Peggy Stevens represented me with my social security disability benefits case . . . . I'm so glad I chose her for this job, she was honest, straight to the point, and kept me updated regularly. Peggy had two jobs with my case, my benefit dealings and my impatient behavior. She handled both very well. So, for you first timers, this is not an overnight process, it takes a lot of time and patience. Peggy does her hob well. Had I known my first round with another law firm would become an epic failure, I would have called Peggy L. Stevens/Stephanie A. Johnson Law firm first!!! This will be your one stop shop, you will feel the confidence immediately. Thanks again, Peggy!

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known Peggy for many years and have worked with her on family law and other civil matters. Peggy is always well-prepared, thorough, and tenacious. I feel very comfortable referring my clients with family law or Social Security issues to her. She is very easy to work with.
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I have known Peggy for several years. I have referred family, friends and clients with difficult Social Security and Family Law matters to Peggy’s office and she always achieves amazing results. I would hire Peggy myself if I needed help in her areas of practice. Peggy is a straight-shooter, smart, kind and effective. You cannot not find better representation.
