Sterling Peterson did a good job of explaining our rights, he laid out possible scenarios with various remedies and handled negotiations to a success conclusion. He kept us advised on the progress of our case and kept me focused when I got frustrated. I highly recommend him for his expertise, experience and professionalism.

I found myself on the wrong end of a lawsuit, which unfortunately in USA is all too common. It was completely baseless but when you are being sued you do have to respond to the suit or settle the suit. I was being sued for an exorbitant amount of money and on a rather tenuous, if not frivolous claim. In reality the basis of what I was being sued for would not have withstood a judgement even if the plaintiffs established jurisdiction, which they likely would not have had I chose to fight. The grounds of the settlement are confidential so I can only say that in some states the basis of the suit is actually thrown out by judges based on law and the plaintiffs are forced to pay attorney fees and a penalty for bringing such a suit. Unfortunately Arizona does not have these laws. As a result I was in a panic and just wanted out of the suit. I had previously hired a "blazing gun" type attorney who specialises in this type of law but he made matters worse. There was an offer of settlement but it involved large sums of money to be paid and I was not guilty of any wrongdoing so I was not willing to do that. I had contact with Brad Denton who was also amazing and Sterling handled my claim and to be honest I am so happy he did. Within weeks we had a settlement offer as soon as he replied to the lack of basis of the lawsuit. I would likely have won but been out a lot of money so when he had got the opposing counsel to simply see that they really did not have a winner they offered a settlement that had little impact on my life, no out of pocket expenses and it has now been dismissed. I did have to fall on my sword and do something I disagreed with morally but as it has no effect on my life the saying, "I'd rather be happy than right" comes to mind. I am thrilled with his ability to see through the facts of a claim and relay that to his opposing counsel and effectuate a settlement I otherwise do not think I would have got. I cannot say enough good things about Sterling. He is personable, approachable, knowledgable, funny, and talented as a lawyer. What he did my "blazing gun" lawyer who allegedly specialised in this type of law was unable to do. I highly recommend him as a lawyer and his firm is great, they give their time and do not just give you time you are paying for but had contact both on an amicable (human) basis, as well as great legal communication.
