Peter learned from his father that clients want and deserve to receive full and fair compensation for their injuries. They also want their lawyer to treat them with respect. Peter prides himself on fighting to maximize his client's financial recoveries. He works hard to guide his clients through what can be a confusing and frustrating process from injury to settlement or trial. Peter takes on a wide range of cases from motor vehicle accidents to complex medical malpractice and commercial litigation matters.

A 1985 graduate of Trinity College, Peter earned his law degree from Boston University School of Law in 1988 when he joined the firm.
