Practice area
  1. Personal injury
    My practice is devoted to personal injury law in all its forms. Personal injury law covers damage to your body, mind, and emotions, but not your property. These injuries are caused accidentally through another party’s failure to use reasonable care. This means that through negligent or reckless action – or inaction, in some cases – you were harmed.

Gary A. Peterson has been a practicing civil litigation attorney for over 20 years. Over the last 15 years he has specialized exclusively in representing injured individuals in all manners of personal injury matters.

I Retained Gary Peterson Personal Injury Lawyer in Orange County California
I have had the opportunity to utilize Gary Peterson's personal injury expertise "3 times". I was involved with two personal injury auto collisions and for my daughter's dog bite case. Always use a personal injury attorney for personal injury cases and immediately take photos and video with your smartphone when the incidence occurs. In both auto collisions I was rear ended. The first was a three car collision and the insurance companies of both parties did not want to offer me anything when I tried to handle the situation by myself, but when Gary accepted the challenge we got way more than expected from both insurance companies. In my second auto collision I was taken to the hospital and Gary did a fantastic job dealing with the party's insurance company that hit me AND my insurance company for MAXIMUM collections. Lastly, my daughter was taken to ER due to a dog bite and Gary came to the rescue again with a very nice settlement. All I can say is that I was very pleased with Mr. Peterson's expertise and experience on all three cases and that I highly recommend him. He is very pleasant to talk to, explains legal concepts simply and is very response via phone and email. You do not deal with paralegals or junior attorneys, Gary does it all.

One of kind!
To say my wife and I were pleased with our attorney Gary Peterson is an understatement, there is simply not enough words to describe the level of service and care he had for the well being of our family. Mr. Peterson is one of kind and gives all attorneys a good name. Through out the process, he really got to know us on a personal level and didn't see us as a transaction, always asked how we were feeling and doing. On the business side, Mr. Peterson's experience, knowledge and advise definetley showed as our case finished in a timely manor and received maximum compensation for our case. Mr. Peterson exceeded our expectations and level of service. He is someone we will always keep in touch with on a personal and business level.

Motorcycle Accident
I had a traumatic motorcycle accident in January 2013. I was represented by an exemplary attorney. My medical bills were completely paid in full. He made arrangements with two hospitals in a timely manner with such diligence and tenacity until an agreement was reached in my favor. I also received a settlement for my pain and suffering. His professionalism, tenacity, and sincereness to help his clients are truly reflected in his character resulting in an outstanding professional attorney.

Great follow-through
Gary did a great job keeping the ball rolling and keeping me informed along the way. My procrastination made the case a little tougher, but Gary helped negotiate a fair settlement. He was also good at helping me gather the necessary records and guiding me on what steps to take to help my case.
