Jacob J. Peters

About me

I was born March 14, 1960 in Council Bluffs and am a fourth generation member of the Peters Law Firm in Council Bluffs. I began working full time for the firm in 1983 as a law clerk, joined as an associate in 1985,  joined the firm as a partner in 1990 and have worked here continuously ever since. My practice is currently confined primarily to Iowa Workers' Compensation Claims on behalf of the Claimant, but I also handle claimant's cases in Nebraska. I also handle personal injury and automobile litigation. I am a member of the Iowa Academy of Trial Lawyers, the Iowa Association for Justice and I have been active in civic and community affairs including serving on the Westfair board for 17 years from 1988 to 2005. I am currently active in the Pottawattamie County Pheasants Forever Chapter and other civic organizations.
