Best attorney ever he deserves more than five Stars
He is the best attorney I’ve ever worked with. I’ve had lawsuits in the past from car accidents, and no one was on it as much as him he got all three of us approved my stepdad, my husband and myself all for Disability for our claims of our problems that we are experiencing, he is very reliable and always fighting for you to get what you deserve. He is an amazing Attorney very honest and caring if you are looking for a disability attorney go through his office he is the best. Amazing service from his office. They are easy to talk to and know exactly how to handle it and they get paid when you win.

Peggy Perkins recommendation
Peter represented me in a Social Security case. He is wonderful, kept me informed, worked hard and had good results. He is very knowledgeable in this field as well as other areas of law. I always felt secure with Peter and his work shows his knowledge of the law.

Got the Job Done!
I had been turned down by other lawyers. Peter took my case in what was seemingly an uphill battle. Peter made me comfortable but never gave me any false hopes. He told me the exact steps to take and helped me build a strong case. I ended up going before a very tough judge, and with Peters help, we got through the hearing with flying colors. I don't think I would have won my case without Peters help. Peter is the greatest!

a very satisfied client
I was referred to Mr Brixie by a friend who he helped win his disability case. After enduring stressful paperwork and phone calls that kept ending in denials for social security disability benefits, I finally enlisted the help of Mr Brixie who was professional, knowledgeable and showed concern for my overall health and well being thru the entire process. He brought great peace and alleviated a lot of pain, fear and stress during one of the most difficult health and life altering ordeals in my life. In the end after a year he won my case. I know i would have given up the process because of the stress of it all had Mr Brixie not represented my case. I would highly recommend him and his staff over and over again. Thank you again Mr Brixie and staff!

good lawyer
I was referred to this lawyer through my mother for a wage labor dispute with my employer. my employer had not paid me. Mr. Brixie filed an action with the labor commission, and I received the pay and $700 extra for late time penalties.

Great Lawyer & Staff
I was referred to Mr Brixie by a friend, when I started the process for social security disability I did not have a lawyer I soon learned that indeed I needed one to help me through the complex process. Mr Brixie is very professional and so is his staff, kept me abreast as to what was going on with my case. After all of the appeals, dr appt's paperwork, I was granted my social security disability with back pay of almost 3 years. If not for Mr Brixie & staff I do not know if I would have been approved. Made me feel like I was his only client at his office.

I trust this lawyer
After 16 months of appealing for disability through forms filed with the SSA, I had received nothing but rejections. So, I sought help from a suitable specialist, Peter Brixie. After four months, I received a favorable settlement without having a court hearing.

I trust this lawyer.
I have sent at least 4 or 5 of my friends to Peter and he always does a great job for them. Now I will be sending another three people to him. Since I have been a paralegal for 20 years, maybe he will give me a job. Been wanting to work with him for years. LOL

verry good lawyer
Mr. Brixie has worked on two of my cases. In both cases, I won. Mr. Brixie is smart, conscientious kept me informed and helped to me understand the issues. I would recommend Mr Brixie without reservation.

Highly Recommended Honest and Trustworthy Attorney
My experiences with lawyers during the last ten years or longer have been that the make promises ,lead you on, take your money , rarely return your call and in the end I loose or achieve very little. With Mr. Brixie, I was told honestly and what to expect from the beginning to end. He always returned my phone calls and helped me with my legal matters at a very reasonable rate. I have been completely satisfied with his work and highly recommend him.

How does he stay in business?
I hired Mr. Brixie over a year ago and the situation was disastrous. I could have lost the most important case of my life due to the lack of response and work required on MY end to accomplish what I needed. His office is in a scary location and his staff is unfriendly and unprofessional. I hired David Allen and Associates to handle my case and it just settled! I will be giving 5 stars to David Allen & Associates and a big zero to Peter Brixie.

"I met Peter while I was a student at Patino School of Law. Peter was my professor in a practice class that focused on assisting low-income clients in need of legal assistance. I was impressed at how Peter made clients feel instantly comfortable by displaying genuine concern while at the same time honing in on their legal issues. I am lucky to have had such a good role model. I will forever be grateful to Peter for his guidance and support. He is genuine, accessible and extremely knowledgeable. I endorse this lawyer."

"Peter Brixie is someone I have known for years as we both appeared on the "Ask A Lawyer" television show. He is a caring individual who goes to bat for his clients. I would refer anyone to meet with him and discuss their matter. Social security law is all the better for Mr. Brixie's involvement!"
Social Security & Disability Attorney | Mar 27
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer's work.I worked with Peter Brixie for many years when we litigated employment termination and discrimination cases together. We won numerous cases against Fortune 500 companies. Peter is thorough and prepared and has exceptional rapport with even the most difficult clients. He vigilantly oversees the client's preparation of their own cases. Since Peter stopped doing employment law and started doing Social Security Disability/SSI cases, I refer all clients needing Social Security work to Peter. Peter knows more attorneys than anyone I know from when he was the host of the Ask A Lawyer and I call him whenever I need to find a referral to another attorney."
