About Me

Peter graduated from the State University of New York at Fredonia in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science.   For almost 10 years, he worked in the field of government and politics as a media and policy coordinator, campaign manager, and executive director of statewide political non-profit organizations.  In that capacity, he assisted candidates and political parties to comply with state and federal campaign finance and election laws.


 


Peter earned a Juris Doctor from Vermont Law School in 2008 and a Masters of Law in Taxation from the University of Washington in 2009.  In 2010, Peter joined Olson Althauser Samuelson & Rayan, LLP, and now calls Centralia his home.  Prior to working for Olson Althauser Samuelson & Rayan, LLP, Peter worked as a Deputy Assistant Prosecuting Attorney in King County and attorney with the University of Washington’s Federal Tax Clinic.
