I graduated from law school at the University of Nebraska in 1982 and started employment with the Peters Law Firm immediately after passing the bar exam in June 1982. Initially hired to perform all areas of the general practice of law, I was directed toward the area of litigation by senior members of the firm and have been practicing in that area since early in my career.
My wife Sue and I were married in 1981 and are the parents of 4 children and currently the grandparents of 3 grandchildren and counting. We have participated in many civic activities including the YMCA, coaching youth sports, volunteering at St. Patrick's Catholic Church and working on the boards for Meals on Wheels, American Red Cross, Micah House, St. Albert Catholic Schools and various fund raising efforts for local non-profit entities.
I have served as the president of the American Red Cross local chapter, St. Albert Regional Board of Education State of Iowa Legal Aid Board of Directors as well as the president of the Peters Law Firm, P.C.
I am a member of the Iowa and Nebraska Bar Associations and have been named a fellow of the Iowa Academy of Trial Lawyers. I also am a member of the Iowa Association for Justice.
My practice is evenly split between defending and prosecuting legal claims. I have tried numberous cases to jury verdict with favorable results in a wide variety of cases including drowning cases, medical malpractice, defective products, quadraplegia cases, farm accidents, contracts, will contests and toxic exposure in addition to automobile and workers compensation claims.
