Client Testimonials

This law office is amazing!!! The Pelley Law Office was a blessing for my husband and I. The very first day we arrived at this office, the employees were all very helpful. We felt like we were in great hands. No one wants to experience bankruptcy. It is very scary and we had no idea what to expect. Sarah was fabulous. She answered every email and any question that we ever had. We recommend this firm to anyone who is every experiencing financial difficulties.

I was faced with a first degree felony, which meant 5-99 years behind bars. It was terrifying. You are not only a great attorney but a very honest man with integrity…you saved my life.

I read all of the testimonials and I cannot agree more! I was so impressed with how calm and professionally you handled our case and how comfortable and confident and well represented I felt. I am so very glad that we chose to use you and should I ever need a lawyer again there is no doubt who I would contact. I really appreciate the friendly courteous staff who was always very polite and helpful as well. Thank you.

YOU ARE THE MAN!!
