Washington Lawyer With More Than 29 Years of Experience

Looking out for your immediate and long-term objectives

As a third-generation attorney in the Peterson family in Pierce County, I take pride in providing my clients with quality and commitment. My practice focuses on personal injury cases, estate planning law and copyright law. Regardless of your legal issue, I provide competent representation and supportive counsel.

As a result of my professionalism and ethics, I have an AV® Distinguished Peer Review Rating with Martindale-Hubbell®. This rating is reserved for only those attorneys whose peers have indicated that they have achieved the highest level of professional excellence.

My goal is to provide exceptional, quality service to clients. I am a loyal 1981 graduate of the Willamette University College of Law in Salem, Oregon (class president and law review).

I am a proud 3rd generation attorney in the Peterson family in Pierce County. My grandfather, Henry Arnold Peterson, graduated from the Michigan Law School and was a successful plaintiff’s attorney in Tacoma for over 40 years.

My father, Robert Henry Peterson, also went to the Michigan Law School and graduated from the University of Washington Law School, and has worked successfully as an attorney, trial judge and as a Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Service (JAMS) mediator and arbitrator since approximately 1994.

When you are confronted with a personal injury as a result of another’s negligence, the burden of proof is on you — the injured person. My more than 29 years of experience can help you prepare your case in an effective manner that can be easily understood by a jury. And because there is no legal fee for our clients unless there is recovery, you obtain a high-quality attorney at no up-front cost to you.
