At the beginning of my divorce/relocation proceeding, I was using a different attorney, and I lived across the country. Initially, I made some poor decisions which was based upon some bad advice that I received from my first attorney. I wanted a second opinion, and I met with Ms. Peacock. After my initial meeting with Ms. Peacock, I immediately had my first attorney withdraw from my case, and I hired Ms. Peacock based on her knowledge, truthfulness and professionalism as a Certified Family Law Specialist. Ms. Peacock was very proactive, thorough and prepared throughout my case which took a year to conclude. Here are some examples:
Ms. Peacock explained everything in depth to me, with examples and statues when applicable. I felt this displayed her knowledge of the law, thoroughness, and patience with me. Her straightforwardness and realistic view (even when I did not want to hear it) kept me grounded and ready for any proceeding/outcome to my case.
Ms. Peacock responded to emails/phone calls in a timely manner. If she was not in the office- her wonderful legal assistant, Lisa, would get in touch with me, or Ms. Peacock would have an outbox email message to explain her absence and who to contact if anything significant were to arise. Ms. Peacock even emailed me while she was on maturity leave. That is dedication.
To help ease my anxiety, Ms. Peacock would meet me prior to all major court proceedings for discussions, strategizing and preparation. It was apparent how well Ms. Peacock was organized and prepared in the issues and facts during my hearing and trial in comparison to the opposing counsel.
Everyone’s case is different. If your case was as active as mine, be prepared for long nights and a lot of deadlines. In the end, Ms. Peacock's skills, knowledge, care and experience provided my family a positive outcome. I whole-heartedly would recommend her to anyone involved in a family case.

Ms. Peacock handled my divorce. She is an excellent attorney who will tell you the TRUTH. As difficult and taxing as the divorce process is, I could not have asked for a better lawyer. As a lawyer, she was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and efficient. Ms. Peacock was also very personable and caring. I truly believe she wants nothing but the best for her clients, and Ms. Peacock will work hard to get it. At one point during the process, she had food poisoning, but she still called me to discuss my case from home. That was above and beyond the call in my opinion. If I need a family law attorney in the future, she will be my first call.

Angela did an amazing job for me on my divorce case. I met with a few different attorneys before I hired her, and I am extremely happy I decided to meet with Angela. She is very thorough and to the point, but she is also very genuine and caring. I was going through the worst time in my life, and Angela helped me pick up the pieces and get my life back on track. I highly recommend her, especially since my outcome was favorable! Thank you, Angela!

Ms. PeaCock seemed to be misinformed about a great many things when I met with her recently. If you speak to her, make sure you independently verify the information you received, as it could very well be flawed. It didn't take me but 5 minutes and one phone call to a Superior Court to find out that Angela was completely wrong on multiple aspects of the process. Also, her mannerisms come across as cold and disinterested, in stark contrast to my expectations. People seek out these types of lawyers for the most emotionally taxing time of their lives, a touch of empathy would have been nice, even if faked.....Not impressed.

As a professional working for a Fortune 50 company, I always seek the most competent professionals especially when my hard earned money and my child’s future are at stake. And I am pleased that Angela far exceeded my expectations.
I retained Angela for handling my divorce in order to prevent my ex-spouse from removing my child from Arizona. She wasted no time and had my ex-spouse served the very next day. During court day, she was very well prepared and also met with me in advance to strategize on my case. During the entirety of the divorce process, Angela had always gone above and beyond to ensure my questions were answered, sometimes even taking calls over the weekend. I found her advice to be straightforward, clear and calming. This was especially important at a time in my life where I found decision making difficult.
She seemed very professional and ethical in her dealings with the opposing side--she's a shark when needed but puts her settlement hat on when she can. Given her vast experience in family law, she was able to predict which way the court will rule. This helped in bringing the opposing counsel to the negotiation table instead of going to court which is far more time consuming and expensive. She also did her best to expedite the case to a speedy resolution.
I really enjoyed working with her. She genuinely cared and showed interest in me and my child as people and focused on what I wanted rather than me just being another case. When dealing with Angela’s office, I felt that I always received personalized attention, which is very comforting during testing times. I know there may be future battles, and it’s nice to know I have someone who is knowledgeable and professional on my side forever. Its my pleasure to recommend Angela to those who can benefit from her commitment to the practice of family law.

Angela was one of the best lawyers I've ever had the pleasure of having work my case. She was straight to the point, she did not give me false hope or steer me in a hopeless direction. She promptly replied to all emails and she gave me detailed statements. When I had an issue with anything she fixed it EXACTLY how I wanted, even without being exactly clear in my descriptive words. She is a fine attorney, and the best you can have for family law issues. She was patient and didn't drag anything out. 10/10 if I needed an attorney again, she'd be my first and only choice!

When my child's mother and I decided to separate, we had to deal with the stress of establishing a custody and child support agreements. Getting these agreements right was particularly important because we had never been married, so I additionally had to be established as the legal father. When it became clear that we would need to go through the legal system to settle our differences of opinion on what was best for our daughter, I was lucky enough to hire Angela Peacock.
The first time I met with Angela I was thoroughly impressed at her immediate understanding of my situations and what I needed, which was something I did not have a clear understanding of. I also admired that she always told me what I needed to know, even when it might not be what I wanted to hear. I had the wonderful experience of not being just another case file lost in the shuffle of a larger general practice firm, and more importantly I had the benefit of working with someone that was a specialist in family law with an understanding of the numerous special rules and regulations that apply to it.
Angela and her paralegal Lisa were always quick to answer my questions and handled communications with the court and Opposing Counsel in a professional manner, even when OC would delay responses and documents. She always presented me with my options, and gave good advice based on her previous experience. At the same time, and equally important in my opinion, she never dismissed me when I asked questions or challenged her advice. Her attention to detail was excellent, and was particularly valuable in preparing documents and in making sure all issues were covered in settlement negotiations.
I would definitely encourage someone going through this difficult process to consider Angela Peacock, and am certainly glad that I did.

Hiring Angela is one of the best things that I have ever done for myself and my children. Angela is very thorough, smart, and she works really hard for her clients. I had a divorce case with custody and spousal maintenance issues, and I had no idea what to do. However, Angela went through everything with me step by step starting from filling the response paperwork until the final decree. She worked with me for months and she was so patient with my questions. She is very confident and very responsive, she answers all questions and she explains everything. I really appreciate her work and I would highly recommend her and I am so glad she is my lawyer. I wouldn't go to anyone but her.

I recently had the good fortune of working with Angela Peacock during my family law case. Hiring Angela is one of the best things that I have ever done for myself and my child. Angela and her assistant, Lisa, did an amazing job for me on my case. Some of Angela’s most notable qualities are:
• A very extensive knowledge of the law;
• An extremely thorough manner of making sure a clients’ rights are covered;
• A kind and caring disposition. She totally understands how trying these situations can be emotionally on her clients;
• A very patient, clear way explaining legal matters;
• A keen eye for detail, especially in regards to how things are written; and
• A very timely and prompt response time to all inquiries.
All in all, I felt Angela had my best interests at heart at all times. I would highly recommend her for any family law matter!

Angela represented me in a dissolution of my marriage. I am extremely pleased with the results. She was always well prepared with regard to both her knowledge of the law and the facts of my case. She was readily available when I had questions. Her knowledge of the case law saved me a considerable amount of money on child support. I am not sure other attorneys would have been able to achieve this for me. In addition, she made sure to get a court order requiring that my ex sign the necessary forms to allow me to claim certain federal income tax credits related to my children. I would not hesitate to recommend Angela to others.
