Review Peter Richter

About Me

A Wisconsin native, I grew up in Boscobel, Wisconsin, and attended the University of Wisconsin both as an undergraduate and as a law student. In 1995, I earned a BBA with honors and was inducted into the Phi Kappa Phi and Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Societies. I graduated, cum laude, from law school in 1998 and joined Stroud, Willink & Howard, LLC, that same year. My practice is focused on employment matters and business litigation and I have represented clients in state and federal court, as well as before the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, and the Wisconsin Employment Relations Commission.

    Peter's level headed strategies and highest ethics make him a pleasure to deal with as opposing counsel. Peter looks at the big picture in terms of his approach to cases. He is a good lawyer and a good person, and I enthusiastically endorse him. Chad W. Koplien
