Meet Anna Pervukhin Sammons

  •  2004 graduate of one of the top law schools in the country, University of Chicago Law School, where she worked for the Mental Health Law Project all through school, (read more about her background in mental health here).
  • Since her very first court appearance as a law student back in 2003, Anna P. Sammons has only represented criminal defendants. She’s never worked as a prosecutor. Her years of experience are all working for people exactly like you, handling trial-level violations, misdemeanors, and felonies, sex offender registration matters, post-conviction relief motions, and numerous appeals.
  • A whole team on your side: The prosecutor does not work alone. They collaborate with law enforcement, experts, victim advocates, and others. Sometimes, it can feel as though they are collaborating with the defense lawyers as well. You need more than a defense lawyer at your side, you need a whole team. Anna Sammons believes in working collaboratively with social workers, investigators, forensic experts, and mitigation specialists. Contact us for a free consultation and learn more about this approach, which can be surprisingly cost-effective, especially if a defendant qualifies for court-appointed counsel.

Galina Quigley

Galina Quigley, a licensed private investigator, has a Bachelor’s of Science in Global Business Management, is certified with the Small Business Administration in the City of Eugene, and has previously worked with the City of Springfield. Originally from Eastern Europe, she speaks multiple languages, including Russian, Ukrainian, and Romanian, is a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, and an avid dancer in her spare time.

Ms. Quigley, a woman of boundless energy, is creative and tenacious about getting at the truth. Her intellect, curiosity and attention to detail are invaluable assets to Anna Sammons’ practice.
