Peter joined PMT in 2014 and is the Managing Partner for the Mid-Atlantic region as well as the Chair of the firm’s Employment and Professional Liability Practice Groups.

He began his legal career over 10 years ago in New York while working at a boutique insurance defense law firm.  It was during this time Peter gained invaluable experience learning how to be a litigator by handling cases from commencement to resolution as well as trying cases throughout the New York metro area.

Thereafter, Peter went on to practice professional liability at an international AmLaw 200 law firm where he not only continued his career as a litigator but also began counseling clients on legal and risk management issues.

This experience has been the bedrock upon which Peter has built his practice. While he has a diverse legal background that encompasses many different areas of insurance, he primarily focuses his practice on professional and general liability.  His clients include lawyers, real estate, design, and insurance professionals as well as retail and construction companies.

Peter is a member of the Claims & Litigation Management Alliance (CLM), American Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, and the New Jersey State Bar Association.

He is also active with Crossroads Programs, which is a non-profit organization that helps homeless, abandoned, abused or at-risk children.  Peter is on the Board of Crossroads and also advises on their legal matters.
