I entered the legal profession after twenty five years in the gasoline and convenience store industry. I held positions ranging from area supervisor of company operated stores to manager of budgets and planning for the marketing department with an eighty million dollar ($80,000,000) budget.

After my corporate career and before entering law school, I spent several years consulting for small businesses in the areas of financial management, operational efficiency and customer relations.

This range of business experience, from the large corporate entity to the individual entrepreneur provides the basis for a unique understanding of client needs and desired results. This includes a perspective from both the Corporate Headquarters view to that of the employee out in the field.

I am passionate about my work and enjoy bringing positive outcomes and solutions to my clients.

Margaret "Peggy" Hughes
Peggy did an oustanding josb representing me in my labor suit. Her attention to detail and organizational skills are outstanding. If I should have any future legal needs I will definitely use Peggy.
