Justin Thompson Peterson

About me

After joining the Florida Bar in 2006, I spent my first three years in general practice law firm handling many types of civil and criminal cases, in both state and federal court. 


In 2009, I joined a small and prestigious firm in Orlando and spent a year and a half handling complex business litigation and consumer protection cases.  


I started my own practice in 2011 because I wanted to put my skills and experience to work for those members of our community who cannot afford the high cost of an ivory tower law firm.


My mission is to provide high quality and honest legal representation to my clients while working with them to make my services affordable.


In addition to my work as an attorney, I am also a Certified Circuit Civil and Appellate mediator.


I am a husband and a father, and my wife and I are both small business owners in the Winter Park community.


I would be honored to discuss your case and to have the opportunity to share my skills and experience with you.  The Peterson Law Firm, P.A. is here to help when you need it.

He delivers his work product on time and understands what the client needs to accomplish. Justin is extremely intelligent and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any legal engagement. He is a very quick study with any new legal issue. Justin always delivers as promised and meets all of his commitments timely.
