I am very satisfied and I recommend the services of Mr. Mougey and Mr. Bixby. I was informed throughout the whole process which ended with a favorable result. All services were confidential and very professional.

5.0 out of 5 stars

The resources, number of attorneys and staff dedicated to our case was impressive. The research was flawless. The preparation and use of video equipment was phenomenal. Peter?s presentation and cross examination was as if scripted for television. At the end of the Arbitration, before a decision was rendered, I told the Team, that they had done a great job, that I was proud of their effort and that I was convinced that we had won. The result is that we won ?Big?. There is no doubt in my mind that I had made the right decision in selecting Peter and his Team to represent me and I would highly recommend to anyone in need of great representation. Thank You Peter and Company.
