Peter was raised on a farm located 60 miles north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. While working several jobs to pay for his education, he graduated cum laude and with honors from the University of Minnesota in 1987 and graduated cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1990.

Furthering his study of the estate, gift, and generation-skipping taxes, Peter earned an LL.M. in Taxation from the top-ranked NYU tax program. An LL.M. is an intensive one-year program focusing on a single area of the law that is in addition to the typical three-year J.D. program.

Following a family tradition of military service, Peter served as a Lieutenant in the United States Navy JAG Corp. In 1992, the Navy awarded his team of attorneys a Meritorious Unit Commendation for providing estate planning services to more than 10,000 service members deployed to the Middle East during Desert Storm/Desert Shield.

After leaving the Navy, Peter focused his practice in the area of estates and trusts. By concentrating his practice exclusively on estates, Peter can provide his clients with an understanding of the subtleties, including most recent changes in the gift, estate, inheritance, and generation-skipping taxes.
