Peter was born in Montreal, Quebec and moved to Toronto, Ontario where he completed his undergraduate and law school degrees. After articling at a boutique personal injury firm, he spent a couple of years working as an insurance defence lawyer, before moving to Alberta in 2013.
Peter’s practice focuses on personal injury, employment and general litigation. Peter routinely handles motor vehicle accidents, complex insurance claims, slip and fall injuries, catastrophic injuries, including spinal-cord injuries, as well as litigating life insurance and long-term disability claims. In addition, he represents both management and employees in employment law matters.
Peter’s client-focused approach generates successful results and has earned him the reputation in negotiations and mediation, as a resolute and tenacious representative of his client’s interests.
Peter has appeared on behalf of clients before the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO), the Court of Queen’s Bench of Alberta, and the Provincial Court of Alberta. He is a member of the Law Societies of both Alberta and Ontario, the Canadian Bar Association and the Alberta Civil Trial Lawyers Association.
Peter is active in his community and volunteers at the Cross-Cancer Institute and coached U5 children’s soccer in Beaumont. Through the Alberta Soccer Association, he completed the Active Start (AS) workshop for coaches working with players under the age of 6. Peter is also currently working towards obtaining a Provincial C-licence to continue coaching education at a higher level.
When he is not advocating on behalf of his clients, he enjoys boxing, golf, travelling and of course hanging out with his 3 awesome children.
