Since 2000, Mr. Peters’ law practice has focused on civil litigation, including commercial business disputes and real property issues. His clients range from individuals to large corporations, and the matters he handles can be small disputes or complex multi-party litigation. Mr. Peters litigates cases in courts throughout Texas, as well as arbitrations and mediations. In today’s business environment of trial avoidance, he feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to try many cases to verdict, and to have several favorable jury awards.
Typical of Mr. Peters’ cases are construction disputes, fiduciary litigation, cases involving unfair competition and covenants not to compete, and partnership dissolutions.
Mr. Peters was born in Heidelberg, West Germany, and he lived several places before finding a home in Austin, Texas. After 20 years with the Texas Legislative Council, his wife Anne Peters is now the Executive Director of the Texas Ethics Commission. Together they raise their two children, Eleanor and Erik. During his free time, Mr. Peters enjoys studying Roman and English history, spending time at his family’s ranch(ette), and correctly answering all of the clues in Jeopardy.
