What Our Clients are Saying
Rebecca is professional, honest, and empathic. After I received my first speeding ticket, I was feeling nervous and overwhelmed. Having Rebecca as my lawyer was one of the smartest decisions I have ever made. She was honest and empathetic with me throughout the legal process. If you want a lawyer that you can trust and that will care about you, I highly recommend hiring Rebecca Peters as your lawyer.
I had the pleasure of having Rebecca Johnson Peters represent me during a very difficult custody battle. Mrs. Peters was very professional, knowledgeable, responsive, and diligent throughout the entire process. I cannot thank her enough for her devotion to my custody case, and would highly recommend Mrs. Peters.
