Biography

A shareholder in the firm's Cherry Hill, New Jersey, office, Peter practices in the area of general civil litigation, with particular emphasis on product liability and premises liability litigation. With trial experience in both state and federal courts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Peter has handled hundreds of product liability, motor vehicle, and premises claims--many involving death, paralysis, loss of limb, burns, blindness, brain injuries, and other severe and permanent injuries. He also defended fire loss cases for a major manufacturer of computer equipment. Sample product claims have involved hunting tree stands, conveyors, commercial laundry equipment, gas powered cut saw, industrial machinery, electric carts, laptop computers, printers, HVAC systems, sprinkler valves, gym equipment, portable stairs, safety harness, dishwasher, roofing materials and manufactured homes.

Peter has considerable experience in product litigation relating to hunting tree stand accidents. He has worked for various manufacturers, retailers and insurance companies in this industry. In addition to handling these claims directly in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Peter has counseled, handled or overseen the defense of over 200 product claims in states such as Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
