Ms. Peake listened to my original issues on my Defense Base Act case. When she read it back to me, I was amazed at the detail to which she took an interest in me and my case.

She was consistent all the way through. If she said she was going to call, she always did. She prepared me for each scenario with the good and the bad. I appreciated being prepared for every aspect of the case.

My result exceeded my expectation well beyond what I expected.

When I refer her to other clients, it is only because she has proven to me her competence in dealing with these difficult and complicated cases called Defense Base Act cases, helping injured contractors for overseas injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sharon
