I am the founder of the Law Office of Caleb A. Petersen, LLC representing clients in personal injury, car accidents, probate and fiduciary litigation matters as well as guardianships.
A large portion of my practice includes the highly specialized and complex area of the law that the majority of attorneys do not practice and what many refer to as adversarial probate claims. This area of the law includes, will contests, breach of fiduciary duties, removal of trustees, actions for accounting of trust assets, recovery of trust/probate property, trust contests and improper use of power of attorney powers. Due to the highly sensitive and often emotionally charged nature of these disputes I work hard to make sure that my client goals and needs are meet while at the same time advocating for their rights. I strongly believe that when a lawyer truly cares about their client's case and stands as a true advocate for the client that positive results are sure to follow.
In addition to probate and estate litigation I represent clients in a variety of personal injury claims the most common of which are car accidents. For those that have been in a serious accident and sustained injuries it can be a life altering event followed by expensive medical bills that must be paid. In every personal injury case I accept it is my goal to get each and every client the fair value of their case which allows them to get the medical treatment they need, pay for that medical treatment and still receive compensation for their pain and suffering.
Prior to opening my private law practice I gained invaluable litigation experience by working as a legal clerk for the long time St. Louis firm of Leritz, Plunkert and Bruning and the California law firm of Law Office of Aaron F. Garcia handling real estate litigation. Additionally, during law school I was part of the Elder Law Clinic at Saint Louis University School of Law providing elderly individuals with estate planning needs as well as handling guardianship proceedings.
I live with my wife and son in the Shaw Neighborhood where we are committed to the St. Louis community. In what free time I do have I enjoy fishing camping and being in the great outdoors.
