About me

Peter R. Olson is a pro-family, divorce and child custody lawyers because your relationship with a daughter or son shouldn’t end due to a divorce or break-up with the other parent. Plus, flat fees are always available because divorce and parenting disputes shouldn’t destroy a person financially.

Prior to his law school attendance, Peter covered Capitol Hill as a journalist and was also a high school social studies teacher in the Peoria, IL area. In his free time, Peter’s an avid golfer, triathlete, and amateur historian. He’s a graduate of both Winona State (MN) and Southern Illinois (SIU) universities. Peter was born in Oak Park, IL, raised in Glenview, IL, and currently lives in Chicago's northwest suburbs.
