My name is Peter Stevenson. I am the Principal and Owner of Stevenson Law, LLC. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Drake University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from Southern Illinois University. During law school, I held several different internships. After my first year of law school, I clerked for a trial court judge. Throughout my second year of law school, I worked for a small firm in Carbondale, Illinois. I was fortunate to land an internship with the Missouri Public Defender’s Office in St. Louis City during my third year of law school. There, I worked on a wide variety of felony cases, and served as second chair on several felony jury trials. After graduation, I took and passed the Missouri Bar Exam, and was admitted to practice before the Missouri Supreme Court. After I was admitted to practice, I worked as an associate attorney in a small firm. While I gained a good deal of experience, I became dissatisfied with that position and started my own firm.
I believe in treating my clients as people, not dollar signs. I promise to treat you with dignity and respect. Anytime you call or visit my office, I want you to feel comfortable telling me about your situation, even if you feel embarrassed or humiliated. No matter what you tell me, I guarantee that I have heard worse. And remember, what you tell me is between us. I cannot tell the cops or anyone else. Finally – and most importantly – if you hire me to represent you, I pledge to zealously advocate on your behalf.
If you are lucky, you may be able to meet Rudy, who occasionally accompanies me to the office. Rudy is a great dog and my best friend. I rescued him from the C.A.R.E. Animal Rescue in Ozark in 2013.
