Peter was called to the Alberta Bar in July, 2014 and has practiced in Airdrie, Alberta since that time. The decision to leave Airdrie was a difficult one, as the relationship that Peter developed with the members of the firm and community will last a lifetime. However, Peter was born and raised, in Edmonton, Alberta and the desire to “move home” was strong. The opportunity to work with a lifelong friend and mentor was something that Peter could not pass up. Peter is excited to have recently returned to the City of Edmonton with his wife and son, and to practice and serve the community in which he grew up.
Peter has appeared before the Provincial Court of Alberta, the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta, and the Court of Appeal dealing with issues of divorce, child support and spousal support, property division, custody and parenting and mobility.

Peter is a strong proponent of alternative methods of resolution including mediation, Arbitration, parenting coordination and Judicial Dispute Resolution.
