About John Peterson

About me

I  have been a resident of the Pacific Northwest since 2004 when I moved to Portland, Oregon to attend Lewis & Clark Law School.  During law school, I worked for the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office and the United States Attorney's Office in Portland, Oregon.


After law school, I worked for Safeco Insurance Company in defending personal injury claims.  In 2007, I was hired at the Clark County Prosecuting Attorney's Office where I prosecuted cases ranging from DUI and Domestic Violence to Class A Sex Offenses.  During my four years there, I tried over 50 jury trials and appeared in court almost every day.


Before attending law school, I taught high school English in the South Pacific, The Bahamas and South Korea.  I am married and have two children.


My practice focuses on criminal defense, personal injury, and medical malpractice cases.
