Pete started his legal career at Lawrence & Associates Accident and Injury Lawyers, LLC in March 2015. He is the head of the Workers’ Compensation practice at the firm. He is licensed to practice in Ohio and Kentucky, and he is a member of the Kentucky Bar Association and the Ohio State Bar Association.
Before joining Lawrence & Associates, Pete worked for an insurance defense firm. After being given an assignment to review the medical records of a quadriplegic person to find opportunities to discredit their story or minimize their injuries, Pete decided he would never work in insurance defense again. He joined Lawrence & Associates because he wanted to be on the side of hard-working, honest people in need of legal assistance during difficult times. Pete honestly believes in the legal process and trusts Kentucky and Ohio juries to reach the right result for the injured clients he represents.
Pete graduated cum laude from the Salmon P. Chase College of Law. He was one of only two students in his graduating class to receive the Certificate for Excellence in Advocacy. Shortly before graduation, he was elected to the prestigious Order of the Barrister. At Chase, Pete was selected to become a member of the Inns of Court in each consecutive year. He was elected vice president of the Chase Student Advocacy Society and was the founding president of the law school Toastmasters Chapter. As a member of the Chase National Trial Team, Pete competed in trial competitions throughout the country, helping fill the law school trophy cabinet along the way. Pete has maintained his ties to Chase, where he works as an Adjunct Professor of the trial team he once represented.
Pete proudly became a U.S. Citizen in 2012, but he was born in England and lived in Poland for nearly two years before moving to the U.S.A. Before becoming a lawyer, Pete pursued a successful management career. He uses this experience to better represent his clients. Pete has a 16-year-old son who has just started driving. He is a lifelong fan of Manchester United Football Club. He is an advocate for breast cancer awareness.
