The Veen Firm surpasses excellence! They state on their website that they provide a team approach that delivers care and attention to the people they assist. This is exactly what the Veen Firm does!
Sometimes in life you find people that truly care about others. Words can't really describe the professionalism, integrity, respect, kindness, and compassion that Craig Peters showed me during this very difficult time. I shared my story with Craig and in turn he treated me like family, supporting me through every phase of the journey.
Craig Peters deserves more than five stars! If ever you need assistance I highly recommend Craig Peters! He will provide a caring, team approach, to support you and your family!

I was introduced to The Veen Firm and attorney Craig Peters by another lawyer, who suggested I contact them due to the degree of difficulty of my son’s case. I was impressed with them from the start. They are honest, have an outstanding reputation for their work in personal injury and were very professional. I worked very closely with Craig and what struck me the most about him was that he is a fantastic listener. He was attentive, responsive and always available when I needed him. Throughout the case, Craig and the team kept us updated at every point.
When we got down to the critical settlement point, I was very impressed with the way Craig approached negotiations and the amount of time and preparation he devoted to it. He literally went out into the streets to ask the public’s opinions and set up a mock trial to get responses to our situation. When it came to settlement time, Craig was incredibly persuasive and astute in crafting arguments that enabled my son’s case to be successful.
When working with Craig, you are dealing with a top-tier individual. His expertise and ability to work with people is outstanding. He is also a congenial man – very approachable and easy to talk to, and his ability to explain complex situations is remarkable.
Even after the case was settled, Craig flew out to Wisconsin to follow up with us to make sure we understood everything and made connections that were critical for us. He was there for every aspect of follow-up.
