Education & Admissions
Peter has a bachelor of science degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and a juris doctor from the New York University School of Law.
He is admitted to practice law in California, New York, the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
As an attorney who represents injured plaintiffs, Peter makes it his personal mission to prevent unfairness and injustice for his clients.
He personally understands what his clients are going through, as he himself was the victim of a serious injury caused by someone else’s negligence. When he was in law school in New York City, Peter was struck by a taxi and left for dead with a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
“I was never able to find out who hit me and obtain justice,” Peter said. “I still suffer from TBI and a permanent loss of smell to this day.”
Peter’s number-one goal is to help other accident victims hold the right parties accountable following their injuries and win the right level of compensation for their recovery.
