Peter J. Flowers is a founding partner at Meyers & Flowers, LLC, a leading personal injury firm with offices in St. Charles, Illinois, and Chicago.
He received his undergraduate degree from Loyola University in 1989 and his law degree from DePaul University in 1992. He is admitted to practice law in Illinois and U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, and is admitted to practice pro hac vice in other states.
Representing clients who have been injured by neglectful physicians, drug companies, medical device manufacturers and others requires a special mixture of compassion and unshakeable determination. As a respected Chicago attorney, Pete has earned his place among the city’s elite attorneys specializing in personal injury, wrongful death and medical malpractice. His many wins against multinational drug companies, insurance company mitigation legal teams and other formidable opponents have resulted in multiple awards by his peers.
Mr. Flowers is a 2021 Super Lawyer and Best Lawyer. He is also a member of the Summit Council and the Million Dollar Advocate Forum for resolving many cases greater than $1 million. Mr. Flowers is an active member and past president of the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.
Pete Flowers leaves nothing to chance during trial preparations, pre trial depositions and interviews. His trial prep team is meticulous in assembling documentary evidence, respected medical expert testimony and witnesses which all culminate in irrefutable proof that his clients deserve significant compensation for their injuries and losses.
Taking on difficult and complex cases is a challenge that many Chicago attorneys avoid due to the commitment of time and resources that these cases require. As a partner in one of the city’s top law firms, Pete Flowers has confronted many of the world’s largest medical device manufacturers, winning his clients meaningful settlements and awards. Cases involving medical issues must meet a high level of proof to overcome the generally held idea that medical doctors are trying to help their patients and that injuries and death are part of the process.
Knowing this, Pete has assembled a team of professionals fully capable of communication complex medical issues to judges and jury members who are not medically trained. This clear, focused approach to presenting his case is one of the many stellar traits that set him apart as a leading attorney among Chicago’s best medical malpractice advocates.
