John Peck

Owner and Lead Trial Attorney

Attorney John Peck is dedicated to advocating for accident victims in the fight to compensate them for injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. John has had a drive to help people since his childhood in Connecticut, carrying it through college and law school, where he found his passion for personal injury law. His grit and perseverance are hallmarks of the strategy behind the firm that bears his name. 


John attended Hobart College in Geneva, New York, with a dream of becoming a senator. He always had strong advocacy skills and was an excellent writer in the classroom. John had always been a confident public speaker, a skill he leaned into as he acted as student body president the last two years of college. He was fiercely loyal to his teammates on the football field and honed his problem-solving skills with colleagues, friends, and family throughout his education. Law school was an evident and productive outlet for these skills and experiences. 


Suffolk Law School in Boston, Massachusetts, was the perfect landing place for John as the school focuses on real-life advocacy skills. The well-regarded school boasts a tight community of alumni who actually litigate the cases they work on. John was enamored from the start, taking every opportunity to practice in mock trials and exploring new legal topics when he was on Law Review. He sought practical education opportunities, working full time through law school at some of the best firms in Boston. 


John is a lifelong baseball fan and was thrilled to start his legal career as a clerk for a local firm whose main client was your Boston Red Sox. He then clerked for Federal Court Judge Patti Saris when she was head of the United States Sentencing Commission. There, John gained invaluable writing experience from the best legal minds in the country. During his second year of law school, Attorney Peck dove into personal injury work. He continued as a clerk for top boutique firms in Boston, eventually leading the litigation group at Nussbaum Law Group for five years. 


John’s interest in personal injury law stems from a fundamental tenet of wanting to help others. Negligence cases have a clear victim and offender – you never have to advocate for a cause in which you do not believe – and the duality makes winning the fight against the insurance company that much better. The justice personal injury attorneys serve is directly life-changing for victims of accident cases, allowing them to start fresh from a terrible circumstance with a substantial financial award. 


Many attorneys believe they can handle a personal injury case the right way without any experience or strategy. That is not possible. At Peck Trial Attorneys, John has trained up his staff to exercise a complete strategy for every case, big or small. John has over a decade of experience handling personal injury cases and his team has the results to justify their unique approach to handling negligence cases. 


Attorney Peck’s years of success as a Boston area personal injury lawyer is highlighted by cases that brought deserved justice to victims of motor vehicle accidents. One heartfelt win involved a single mother who got hit by a truck in a crosswalk. Attorney Peck’s diligence earned her a substantial award that brought financial stability, the ability to buy a new home for herself and her daughter, plus money to spare to send her daughter to college in the future. 


In another win, after three other attorneys turned her down, John won a case for a young woman who was thrown from an ATV and badly broke her wrist. She was awarded the funds required to purchase a home and pay off her student loans. 


John and his team also helped a young man who was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. The injuries were catastrophic and the driver of the car that caused the accident fled the scene. After a long investigation, John and his team were able to secure over $1,000,000 for the young man and his family. These wins demonstrate the direct impact of winning a personal injury case and the success of the Peck Trial Attorneys approach to building a case. 


Accessibility of legal services is of supreme importance at Peck Trial Attorneys. John has seen firsthand that many people who recently immigrated to the United States – those unfamiliar with the US legal system – avoid starting personal injury cases out of fear or confusion. Out of the thousands of people that Attorney Peck and his team have helped, over half of them have been Spanish speaking immigrants who often felt powerless after they were hurt by someone else’s negligence. 


John hopes to make his services accessible and the legal process comfortable for his clients. He does this while working hard to raise the standard of excellence for personal injury attorneys in Boston. Best-in-class customer service and availability is key to achieving that goal. John leads the team at Peck Trial Attorneys that strives to improve the quality of their work every day as they deliver impressive results for clients. 


Attorney Peck lives in East Boston with his wife and their dog. John and his wife hope to start a family soon and plan to stay in the city, helping their local community. He worked as a sous chef for many years and still loves to cook. He spends his time with family and friends, regularly attending concerts and baseball games when he’s not in the courtroom. 


Peck Trial Attorneys support the Bottom Line organization, routinely hiring recent college students hoping to pursue a career in law. The firm also regularly sponsors local charity events with the hope of having a positive impact on the lives of immigrant children in the Greater Boston Area.

Stephanie Farias Perez

Manager, Client Success

Growing up, I knew I wanted to pursue a career that would provide me with a challenge while allowing me to grow and learn new skills. Working in the law field provides me with those opportunities because it allows me to learn something new and apply that knowledge in my life.

Personal injury law allows those in this field to advocate for the community. Injury law can become very complicated for someone unfamiliar with the variety of liability situations that can arise. Being able to assist a client with the expertise and knowledge on injury claims makes what can be a difficult and stressful situation into one where we guide and help clients receive fair compensation.

I chose Peck Trial Attorneys because of our close-knit work environment. With it being a smaller law firm, we can all contribute and collaborate on each case. This allows for an environment where we can all work together, positively impacting how we manage our problem-solving and management skills.

Through my journey in life, the threads of justice have woven a narrative that led me to the world of law. Hailing from Ethiopia, where the absence of a fair judicial system casts shadows of desperation and hopelessness, I felt an innate calling to be a beacon of hope for those who have been left in the dark. My choice to pursue law stems from a deep-seated desire to empower communities, letting them know that their struggles are heard and that justice is not an elusive concept.

Personal injury law allows me to stand alongside those who have been hurt and neglected, amplifying their stories and ensuring that each person, with their unique narrative, is given the attention they deserve. It's a commitment to being part of a profession that listens, understands, and lends a helping hand to those who need it most.

Enter Peck Trial Attorneys—an oasis of humanism in the legal landscape. Choosing to be a part of this dynamic team was a natural alignment of values. Inspired by James Baldwin's words, "There may not be as much humanity in the world as one would like to see, but there is some," our firm embodies that 'some' with unwavering commitment. At Peck Trial Attorneys, humanism takes center stage, and it feels invigorating to be part of a company that strives to work closely, thoughtfully, and with sharp conviction to aid those who may feel helpless.

In this collective pursuit of justice, every member of our team brings intelligence, thoroughness, and an unrelenting spirit to the forefront. Together, we forge a path that not only acknowledges the stories of the unheard but actively works to rectify the injustices they face. It's more than a career at Peck Trial Attorneys—it's a shared dedication to making a tangible difference in the lives of those who need it most.

Why law?

The legal field has always interested me since I was young, because I always wanted to work in a challenging field where you are constantly learning. The legal field challenges you to think analytically and apply the skills you learned to each case. Law is interesting because each case is unique from one another and the law is constantly changing.

Why personal injury?

Personal injury has always been interesting to me and it's a field that always helps the community. Many people might get overwhelmed with their personal injury cases because it seems very complex and they might not know where to start or how to advocate for themselves. That is why I love working in this field to help relieve some of that stress and make the process a bit easier for them.

Why PTA? 

I chose Peck Trial Attorneys because it was an extremely welcoming environment from the start. We all work together and collaborate well with each case. I believe that a close-knit environment produces the best outcomes, and that is what Peck Trial Attorneys does.

1
An accident occurs

Immediately after an accident, prioritize your health and safety. Get a thorough medical evaluation on the scene if needed to understand the extent of your injuries. If you can, make sure to take photos of the scene – the more evidence we gather, the stronger your case.

2
Hire Peck Trial Attorneys

During this meeting, present all the information and evidence you have about the accident. Be honest and thorough in your account.

3
Your job after hiring a lawyer

Follow through with your treatment plan and call us if you need anything or have any questions. Our team will be in touch with you regularly to check in but, if something comes up, never hesitate to touch base.

4
Evidence gathering

During the course of your medical treatment and directly after, the team will be gathering all your medical records and bills, using investigators and experts to prove how gravely the accident affected your life and the lives of your family members.

5
Demand and the settlement process

Once we have all the evidence, we send a demand package to the insurance company and negotiate the value of the case. The insurance company has 30 days after we send the demand to make an offer, or we will file a lawsuit. We will only advise you to settle the case if we believe it is fair value for your injuries. Once your case is settled through negotiation, mediation, or trial, your attorney will ensure the settlement is executed and you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

6
Litigation and discovery

If the insurance company does not offer fair value during negotiations and we have the facts on our side, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf, holding every person or company responsible for your injuries accountable. Both sides exchange information and evidence during discovery and your attorney will prepare and defend your claim, including conducting depositions and gathering further evidence.

7
Alternative dispute resolution

Before the trial, there's an opportunity for mediation, where a neutral third party tries to help both sides reach an agreement.

8
Trial

If mediation doesn’t lead to a settlement, your case will go to trial. Your attorney will present your case to a jury seeking the best possible outcome for you.
