Peter's was one of the top junior tennis players in the Netherlands. Peter's
tireless competitive nature was further developed while playing on the Varsity of
the University of Alabama tennis team while obtaining his degree in corporate

He was raised on the fundamental principles of hard work and fairness to
everyone, and lives his life and operates his law practice with those basic tenants
at the forefront of his mind. He deeply cares for those who have been wronged
by the recklessness or arrogance of others, and true to his competitive nature
welcomes a fight against those who would act with such disregard as to mistreat
their fellow man.

four children and grandfather of five.
