Review Todd Petersen

About Me

Three years ago, we opened Petersen & Petersen with the idea that every case we accept must be thoroughly developed and prepared with the expectation that we must ultimately be ready for trial.  We do not accept every case, but when we do you can be assured that we will dedicate the time and resources necessary to advance our clients' interests.
