At Lamar Peckham, my mission is to learn and understand my clients’ needs and the external factors affecting them so that I can aggressively and professionally represent them throughout the legal process. I clearly communicate my legal knowledge and experience, thereby enabling my clients to make well-informed decisions for themselves.

My approach is to provide a personalized attorney-client relationship based on each client’s unique concerns and requirements. My philosophy is based on the commitment to provide experienced advice to my clients. I am dedicated to full value for every dollar invested in legal services. My clients can expect prompt personal service and uncompromising, quality legal representation delivered in a cost-effective manner.

I am constantly seeking to improve my performance in order to be prepared for the challenges facing my clients. I keep pace with the latest innovations in the delivery of legal services by continually investing in training and technology. My work environment is based on diligent work effort, community involvement and a commitment to the profession.
