The Peterson Law Firm holds to our firm's mantra: Life is full of roadblocks; we are here to clear the road.

Firm Overview

The Peterson Law Firm recognizes that your case is YOURS. Our goal is to provide clear, concise legal advice tailored to YOUR needs and wants. Each case is unique, so we focus on your goals which we identify with you throughout our meetings and the case itself. We are here for you and not to just put another case in our files.

We take great pride in our accessibility. You will have direct contact with the attorney on your case and prompt responses to calls and emails. This is your case and your life, and you should receive the service to ensure that the case is handled efficiently and quickly. You, as our client, are first as we represent you. We understand that entrusting your life and case to an attorney is a big step and requires a lot of trust; our office works to satisfy that trust you place in our hands as we serve you.

Our office focuses on two areas of law: Family (including Divorce, post-decree modifications, child support, child custody, enforcement of court orders, adoption, grandparent rights, and juvenile matters) and Bankruptcy (including Chapter 7 and Chapter 13). This focus allows us a unique perspective in financials in family law matters and an understanding of financial circumstances and its effects to families and individuals faced with a possible bankruptcy filing.

Stuart Peterson

The Peterson Law Firm

Stuart is the principal attorney at The Peterson Law Firm and will personally handle every aspect of your case within the firm. His first position out of law school focused on consumer bankruptcy filings wherein he spearheaded hundreds of bankruptcy cases within his first year of practice. This hands-on experience led him to handle complex issues involving heightened emotions and a need for optimal resolution for his clients. His current practice focuses both on consumer bankruptcy and in family law. His initial practice of bankruptcy has allowed him to be able to assist family law clients in complex financial issues faced in divorce matters and financials of many custody cases.

Stuart’s goal in founding The Peterson Law Firm is to create an attorney-client relationship wherein the client is not intimidated to ask questions nor feel bullied into a certain position. Each client to come to The Peterson Law Firm will meet directly with Stuart to discuss their case and goals. His goal in the practice of law is to help regular people faced with complex issues achieve a better and brighter future.

Stuart is not a robot and solely focused on the practice of law. His interests range from the latest trade rumors in the NFL to reading the latest science fiction novel that he found on the internet. He firmly believes that Superman is the greatest superhero and during the “off hours” you can likely find him spending time with his wife and their three children.
