PEGGY CAMPBELL, PARALEGAL
Peggy Campbell works with our firm’s clients to support and assist them throughout the life of their legal case. A paralegal with over ten years experience in civil trial law, Peggy has fulfilled that role in association with Sean Cronin and Greg Maxwell for the past five of those years. Her legal career, which spans nearly 25 years, began on Long Island, New York, where she was born and raised.
Peggy is a graduate of the special training offered by the Katherine Gibbs Business School in New York City, where she earned honors in what she describes as “two extremely intense years.” Her first position, just before embarking on a career in law, was as a Copy-Editor for Reader’s Digest Magazine. The attention to detail she gained in that job, coupled with her special training, has proved to be very beneficial in her current responsibility of assisting our firm’s attorneys to prepare the many legal documents related to clients’ cases.
Back on dry land for the past decade, Peggy gets strong satisfaction from her work in civil trial law, especially in the opportunity to help make a solid difference in client’s lives –lives that have been harmed by the actions of others. Committed to her work, she is a member of the professional organization Northeast Florida Paralegal Association (NEFPA). Peggy and her husband Don live in Jacksonville with their 28 lb Tabby cat that, appropriately enough, is named “Mooch.”
