What Our Clients Have to Say...

I was referred to Ms. Peterson about 4 years ago as I was involved in a hit and run accident. She was very dedicated and very responsive. Ms. Peterson was able to get everything resolved and I walked away with a nice settlement. She is very professional and caring, she doesn’t treat you like a client but more like family and is very phenomenal at what she does. If I ever get in another accident hopefully I won’t, Jenaye will be the only attorney I would ever use.

-Erinn Pankey

I hired Attorney Peterson to handle a breach of contract claim. She attempted to resolve the matter short of court but the individual was being unresponsive. Attorney Peterson gladly filed a lawsuit on my behalf and we WON!  She ran circles around the other attorney and made his client say things on the stand that were unimaginable. Attorney Peterson is a force to be reckoned with and a joy to watch in a courtroom! She is a BEAST!

Recently my husband was faced with a breach of contract situation, so we contacted Attorney Peterson. She made countless phone calls, and sent correspondence letters. She was ready to file a law suit and litigate our case but she didn't have to because they agreed to pay us. For anyone needing an attorney who goes over and beyond for you, then this who you need to hire.
