Dear James,

We are just writing to let you know how we are and how the settlement you obtained for us has made a very great difference in our life. We are now living at an assisted living facility and this would not have been possible without the funds that we received through your efforts.

We want you and everyone else at Pegalis to know that the work you have done for us has made a tremendous difference in our life and that we will always be extremely grateful for everything you did.

I was very pleased with the settlement and want to express my gratitude to Mr. Fallarino for his efforts on my behalf. He was straightforward and professional as he guided me through the "ins and outs" of the process.

Mr. Baydar always kept me in the loop and provided a clear, easily understood explanation of what was taking place with regards to the finalization of the settlement numbers. He simplified a rather complex process for me.

Other team members, such as staff who answers phones, direct calls, etc. were also part of a positive experience.

I feel like Mr. Pegalis is part of our family. He is one of the kindest and most caring people I know.


Good morning,

My husband and I would like to say Thank You to all of you for your time and efforts in our case over the past four years. We appreciate everything that you have done. Your passion in fighting for us was admirable and we will be forever grateful!

Dear Bob,

Thank you for doing such an intelligent job in representing us. This was a big win for us. Hopefully the doctors will change and dig deeper into diagnosing “the obvious.” May God help you search for the truth every day.

Hola Mr. Nagrotsky,
Thank you for the information, advice and kindness.

Thank you very much for taking the time to speak with me regarding my husband's horrible experience at the hospital.
Your explanation of how the legal systems work, how hospitals work and your experience brought me a great deal of peace of mind! This was no small feat since I have felt horrible for months about my husband's cardiac care and mental well-being care when in the hospital.
Thanks again for your help!

Sincerely, D.A.

Mr. Pegalis, you have always been there for us - through good times and bad. If I needed advice, a shoulder to lean on, a sounding board; you never hesitated to be there for me.

Ms. T.

Thank you for bringing my case to a successful conclusion. It was a long road, but worth the wait. I'm sure many clients will benefit from your diligent, thorough, and persistent efforts, just as I have.

Your firm allowed me to have a sense of validation that something was very wrong when the hospital wanted us to think otherwise. It’s hard to put into words my appreciation for the professional and emotional support there, especially Annamarie Bondi-Stoddard, James Baydar and Rhonda Meyer. They accepted every phone call and never dismissed any questions I had. They kept me updated and made me feel very confident they were pursing every avenue.

Although money cannot replace a life taken too soon, my daughters and I have found some sense of peace knowing that we did what my husband would have wanted us to do. We will always be grateful for your firm for their time and dedication. I would refer your firm to anyone who is in need of legal counsel.

With gratitude, D.G.

Dear Gary, I take this opportunity to express my heartiest gratitude to you for your sincere, intelligent and endless efforts in handling the case. You showed a lot of patience in always listening even when we got emotional while narrating the incident, you always spent time going to the depth of the case ignoring our accent and at times communication problem due to our emotions. Although the loss of my mother is irreparable, we have the satisfaction that due to you and your team's best possible efforts, justice has been meted out to us. Otherwise, we would have lived with the feeling of ignorance and helplessness for the rest of our lives. There would be no exaggeration to say that this would not have been possible but for your efforts and hard work. Your professional acumen is indeed indescribable. My family feels proud of you and will always pray for your continued success in your career and a joyous family life. I believe mother is blessing you, your firm and your families from heaven for getting us justice.


March 2014

Dear Mr. Pegalis, I am sending you this card on my 20th birthday. I am very happy. Thank you for all your help when I was a baby.

To: Mr. Pegalis, Jim, Sandy, and Staff: Thanks so much for your believing in this case and working so hard to ensure our daughter has a secure, safe future and through the resources made possible by your successful arguments, may she prosper and benefit greatly towards being independent.

Thank you for taking my husband’s case. You did a marvelous presentation. You left no stone unturned and you didn’t retreat.

Just recently I referred a difficult medical malpractice case to your office. I really cannot thank you enough for all you have done. From start to finish, I appreciated the professional way that you and your office handled this matter and kept me informed. You have truly lived up to your reputation for hard work and excellent results. The confidence I had in you, and the manner in which you handled every aspect of the case left me with no doubt as to a successful outcome. I look forward to working with you again in the future.


December 2018

I want to express, on behalf of myself and my family, our appreciation for all you have done. From the outset, I developed complete trust and confidence that you would handle every aspect of my family's difficult and emotional case in a professional manner. I truly appreciate your dedication and how you kept me informed throughout the litigation. You were able to achieve an outcome that provided some comfort to my family.

Mr. L.

December 2011

I first met Mr. Pegalis in 1986 when he represented my daughter, Michelle, in her medical malpractice case. He is the one person in my life that I truly admire and respect. When I entered his office, I was nervous, upset, and worried about what would be for the future of my precious child. I knew of his reputation as an outstanding attorney, but I needed to trust this person who would have a direct impact on the outcome of events for my Michelle.

December 2007

We both really appreciated both your high level of professional and personal care. Besides handling our son’s case brilliantly, we also felt your genuine concern for us and that really meant a lot to us. Beyond helping families in distress, you are doing socially important work and I am sure you deserve pride in that aspect of your results.

July 2003

When I was growing up I had lost faith in people because so many of them had let me down. I did not trust anyone. Then you came along and you restored my faith in the human race.... I am eternally grateful.

July 2002

It is because of you and people like you that will represent these children that are handicapped because of someone’s negligence that we should always be grateful to you. The settlements that you won have taken such pressure off the parents and enabled the children involved to do things that we would never be able to afford. A whole new world has opened up to our son because of you.

August 1996

Letting you know how thankful my family is to you and your staff for all the hard work you did for our son. It is good to know that there are lawyers out there that really search out the truth when the medical profession decides that you have no right to know about yourself.

May 1994

To say thank you for all your concern, dedication and hard work in and out of the courtroom doesn’t seem to be enough. However, please know we truly appreciate how you helped our family and let me say that although our trial was stressful for us, you made it “enjoyable”. Watching you work was extraordinary.
