I contacted HPW to request they pursue a personal injury claim on my behalf after a catastrophic backward fall down some dangerous steps leading into a restaurant. The fall caused serious damage to my arm and shoulder. The quality of service I received from Hubbard Pegman & Whitney throughout their handling of my personal injury claim was no less than excellent. Charlotte Pegman and John Cunningham were personally involved throughout. Their attention to detail was superb. Every aspect of my claim was dealt with expertly and sensitively, while always being completely focused on the best outcome for me. They achieved an extremely satisfactory settlement. I cannot recommend them highly enough.” Laraine Cuming
