He graduated with distinction from the John Marshall Law School in May
1985 and was admitted to the practice of law in the State of Illinois
in the fall of that year. He is also admitted to practice before the
United States Supreme Court, and the Federal Court for the Northern
District of Illinois. While a law student, Peter served as the Chief
Law Clerk for the Judges of the 16th Judicial Circuit Court, and was an
active member of and author for the John Marshall Law Review.  He
joined the firm in 1985 as an associate and became a partner in 1995.
Peter has extensive experience in libel and related matters having
