Practice areas

Daniel Peters focuses his practice on real estate law, including evictions (unlawful detainer), condemnations (eminent domain), acquisitions, easements and boundary disputes.   Prior to joining the Genesis Law Firm, Daniel spent two years as an attorney at the top-notch commercial litigation firm of Savitt Bruce & Willey before leaving to form DB Peters Law, where he focused on civil litigation and real estate disputes.

Mr. Peters graduated magna cum laude from Willamette University College of Law, where he earned a Certificate in Dispute Resolution and was an editor for the Willamette Law Review. During law school he spent two years as a law clerk for the Oregon Department of Justice’s Commercial, Condemnation and Environmental Litigation Team, where he worked on a variety of high stakes cases involving government contracts, environmental regulations, condemnations and Oregon’s cutting-edge land use measures.  Prior to law school, Mr. Peters was a paralegal for Graham & Dunn’s condemnation team, where he worked on hundreds of cases for government agencies and property owners involving the government’s acquisition of private property for public projects by paying just compensation.

Mr. Peters believes in giving back to the community.  He received the 2012 KCBA Volunteer Attorney of the Year Award for his work on eviction matters with the Housing Justice Project.  He also volunteers with the Future of Law Institute, the Q-Law Association and serves on the board of Community for Youth.

Mr. Peters is a Puget Sound native with a passion for the amenities the region has to offer. He enjoys wildlife and landscape photography, playing team sports, rooting for the Mariners and Seahawks, and hiking and bicycling with his wife.

Sewer Line Easement
A real estate developer contacted me. They requested to install a sewer line through my backyard and grant a sewer line easement to the local sewer district. Daniel reviewed the legal documents from the developer and provided suggested revisions to strengthen my protections. The result was a better agreement for me and increased peace of mind.

At the time when we were so desperate in saving the only home we have known, Atty. Peters came to the rescue. He represented us excellently and promptly. The result was acceptable for both parties. I will definitely recommend him and this firm to others. For this, we will forever be you and the staff who is also very approachable and welcoming! All the best!

Great response and great results
Daniel did a fantastic job for me! I had a judgment against my ex-husband that my other attorney was unable to collect. Daniel grasped the issue immediately and within a week had a response from my ex and within a few months had the wheels turning. I picked up my check for my entire judgment plus interest on Monday. I never had to wait for a response from Daniel. He was always able to respond to my emails within a day. I highly recommend this firm and this attorney in particular.

Pathetic firm and lawyer
I hired this firm and lawyer to deal with real estate matter, after taking the trust fund money , lawyer response was none at all, I sent a construction contract to review , no respsonse , basically did nothing a sent me a bill over 500 dollars, I got in all kind of contract issues with contractor because my lawyer was pathetic and didn't give me any recommendation. Why take trust fund and bill agianst it when you don't want to do any thing.

Daniel B Peters is a terrible lawyer! We unfortunately hired him to help in evicting an individual. Daniel’s server was unable to serve our tenant even though we stated up front that she was going to be challenging. It took Daniel over a week to ask what the tenant looked like, what car they had. Even after racking up almost $700 cost in fees for lame attempts at service, we had to settle with mailing the paperwork and forgo a money judgment in the trial! The court papers Daniel filed were full of errors so much so that the first 30 + minutes in court were spent with Daniel poorly attempting to justify why it was ok to not have the address of the property on the court documents!!! Unable to succinctly argue anything else that their lawyer brought up the commissioner forwarded us for trial. We requested Daniel to negotiate the tenant move-out, however that was botched also per the Sheriff. Per the Sheriff, the negotiation should have required the tenant to turn over the keys and not include postponement of the Sheriff’s service. All resulting in an additional 2 weeks of the tenant staying in the place and the entire process more of a nightmare than I ever imagined.
