Capitalizing upon the litigation skills he developed as a prosecutor, Peter is an experienced civil litigator with broad experience representing both individuals and corporations.
Although he is a trial lawyer by training, he is a problem solver by practice. He has pursued monetary remedies on behalf of clients as well as defended clients against claims in both state and federal courts. Peter has represented clients in personal injury matters, as well as in commercial, contract, consumer fraud, and tort litigation. He has also litigated employment disputes involving restrictive covenants and unfair business competition, as well as various forms of employment discrimination. Peter's experience includes representing clients in arbitration and mediation settings, which are crucial stages as most civil matters do not result in trials. Peter regularly represents small business clients in an efficient and cost-conscious manner in connection with government and internal probes.
As a student in law school, Peter participated in the Impact Litigation Clinic (formerly known as the Appellate Clinic). He briefed and argued a case before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. He has subsequently briefed and argued matters before the New Jersey Appellate Court and the Third Circuit Court of Appeals. Peter is the unique lawyer who has the intellect to write winning appellate-level briefs as well as the tenacity and courtroom skills to obtain favorable judgments for his clients at the trial level.
Whether we are trying a case to a jury, arguing an appeal or participating in a form of alternative dispute resolution, the firm's focus is to achieve the best possible resolution, in accordance with our clients' goals, in a cost-effective manner. We do this by consistently displaying tenacity, tireless preparation, strategic thinking and effective advocacy skills.
