Mr. Olson has previously represented people and tried many cases involving other areas of the law, including, but not limited to first degree murder and other felony criminal cases, civil defense work, representation of professionals before disciplinary boards, arbitration proceedings involving both injured individuals and claims of professionals, divorce and child custody. However, Mr. Olson has found the greatest reward comes from helping people who have suffered harms and losses due to no fault of their own. Thus, many years ago Mr. Olson dedicated his law practice solely to helping injured persons, and their families. Mr. Olson has recovered millions of dollars to help his clients, including multi-million dollar settlements and trial verdict. Mr. Olson is proud of his work to help his clients offset the financial hardships that follow injuries and deaths. For Mr. Olson, representing injured people requires much more than just recovering money. His goal is to improve people’s lives, by bringing greater awareness to safety issues, and prevention of injuries.

Mr. Olson has two children (Michael & Maggie).

I had a slip and fall accident where the store refused to take responsibility and their insurance company ignored my calls. I contacted Pete Olson who was extremely helpful in resolving my case. His staff was efficient and friendly. I was very nervous about having to take this to an attorney, however the entire office put me at ease and Mr. Olson was so knowledgeable and always available to me when I had concerns. I was very pleased with the outcome and would highly recommend this law firm.

Personal Injury
Great lawyer, stays on top of things. Does exactly what he says he is going to do. So glad I took the time to meet him, great individual. He cares about my needs just as much as his own. If I had to do all over again, I wouldn't chose anyone but him.

Slip and Fall
I slipped on water at a grocery store that employees didn't bother putting up a wet floor sign. Mr. Olson and his awesome team helped me hold them accountable. They do exactly what they say they will do. I highly recommend this firm to anyone that needs help going up against a big box store or any individual that is at fault!

Uninsured motorist accident
I was recently in an automobile accident where I suffered multiply injuries. I was at a loss because the other driver was uninsured.

I would recommend them to anyone who needs help resolving a legal issue.

Mr. 0lson was an exceptional lawyer. I hired Pete after I was in a car accident where a drunk driver rear ended me off the interstate. First I was consulted by Mr. Olson And we went from there. The whole process was smooth and didn't take much time at all. I would highly recommend Mr. Olson.

Motor Vehicle Accident
My husband and I were involved in a 6 car accident at a red light while stopped. I broke my arm and my husband injured his back and his knee. Our 11 month old car was totaled. My husband at the time was active military and we had Tricare as our insurance. Pete Olsen and his staff were courteous and accommodating. While the entire process took a little over 3 years for us to see any money, it was largely due to delays by Tricare. We were very happy with the professionalism of his team and we would recommend them to other accident victims.

Pete Olson and his team are truly amazing. They are easily accessible and always available to help guide you. Most situations where you "need" an attorney or legal advice are usually never pleasant. Pete and his team are very professional yet make you feel like family. The Olson team lifting the legal burden so I could concentrate on my husband's long term healing. I cannot Thank Pete and his team enough!

I feel like I was treated fair and was always treated respectfully. The settlement wasn't big but that didn't make me feel less important than anyone else. I would recommend him to everybody for anything.

Motor Vehicle Accident
I first came to Mr. Olson in April 2009 after a motor vehicle accident. I instantly was taken back by his kindness in sincerity. I knew before I left the office that he would be the attorney representing me. This after speaking with other attorneys in my area that seemed to rush me in telling my story and deal with me as "just another client". His staff made sure that I was always up to date regarding the status of my case as well as why there were delays. I was very relieved to know that after 6 yrs of waiting for the close of my case, that I was never forgotten nor was my case made to feel old, outdated or a lost cause. I would definitely recommend Mr. Olson to others. A sincere attorney ready to fight for his client, no matter how long it takes. ^ years later my case has closed and the service I received never let me down. THANK YOU MR. OLSON
