Ask The Lawyer

Ask A Lawyer Peel Law Firm

Common questions I receive are answered here:

Q. Why do keep your office small?

A. I am here to build back into my clients’ lives who have been injured. I have never desired to build a big Firm.

Q. How can a Christian be a lawyer?

A. The laws of Injury compensation for negligent acts derives directly from the Bible. If it were not possible to practice law and be a believer, I would leave the law.

Q. Money can’t bring back a missing leg, or a dead person, so why even make a claim?

A. It is true that money does not properly compensate for losses, but it is the only solution that allows the survivors to have the freedom to decide how best to move forward. 

Q. Why are you not on television every second like the other lawyers? 

A. I am not like the other lawyers.

Q. Do you go to court just in Memphis? 

A. I have cases in Shelby, Fayette, Lauderdale, Carroll and other counties throughout Western and Middle Tennessee. Also, I work with local counsel on cases in other states like Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas and Florida. 

Q. What was your biggest case?

A. Monetarily speaking, a trucking case I resolved at 2.85 million dollars. But every case feels big and important if you are the victim.

Q. Why are you not in downtown Memphis and instead, In Millington? 

A. I worked in Memphis while in law school but my first job out of law school was in Millington. Later, it seemed comfortable to found Peel Law Firm among the great friends and community I found here. I’m downtown plenty enough for me. 

Q. Were you raised here?

A. I was born in Memphis, but my father was a psychologist and we wound up in Southern Arkansas. I spent much time back up here in Arlington and Rosemark with my grandparents while growing up. I moved back here in 1991 after college at Arkansas and graduated Memphis Law In 1995. Our home is in rural Arlington. The Peel family dates back to 1850 in the Shelby Forest area. 

Q. What would you tell the world if you could speak to them? 

A. Jesus will change your life, if you’ll let Him. And carry lots of Uninsured Motorists Insurance!

Q. What accomplishments are you proudest of?

A. Blessed to be the husband of my beautiful bride of 25 years, having three great kids I’m so proud of; and I just became a grandfather last year. The legal awards and recognitions pale in comparison.
