Professional Experience

Peter began his legal career as an Assistant State’s Attorney prosecuting cases in the Office of the State’s Attorney for Baltimore County, Maryland. Not long after, however, Peter resigned from that position to pursue his dream and train for the United States Olympic Track and Field Trials in the decathlon. Later returning to the legal profession, Peter went into private practice, where he has spent the better part of the past two decades honing his skills representing clients to great success.
