Our founder, the Physician Contract Lawyer, grew up among a family of physicians and a dentist. His father practiced family medicine and his mother practiced pediatrics.
Peter’s parents formed a medical clinic that would service the small, East Texas town where he grew up. From an early age, our founder understood the struggle that doctors had attempting to balance family life while maintaining a vibrant, medical practice.
Although Peter chose the legal profession, his younger brother decided to follow their parents’ footsteps and is now a pain management physician at a large, private hospital. Meanwhile, the youngest brother attended dental school and now has a thriving dental practice with his wife in the same small, East Texas town where the brothers grew up. Peter married a family nurse practitioner who worked at MD Anderson Cancer Center and Texas Children’s Hospital.
Peter understands the challenges medical professionals have of providing quality, medical care especially under extensive government regulation and restrictive payment practices by insurers. It is this unique perspective of the life of a medical professional that allows Peter to approach your problems from many different angles and to seek a well-rounded solution to help achieve your objectives.
Peter has gained invaluable experience through the years by helping his family members and friends in the medical profession in solving their legal problems. He has used that experience to help clients not only in the Houston Texas Medical Center but all across the State of Texas and the United States of America.
Our founder attended the Syracuse University College of Law as well as the Whitman School of Management earning both JD and MBA degrees. He clerked for a federal judge during his last year of law school. His love for learning did not stop there, and he attended the prestigious Georgetown University Law Center to earn his LLM degree—an advanced post-graduate legal degree held only by a fraction of practicing attorneys in the United States.
Peter began his legal career in Houston, Texas in 2004 as an associate at a boutique law firm. In 2006, he joined a prestigious international law firm where he eventually became a Senior Associate. In 2011, Peter joined the legal team of a publicly traded global company where he served as its Senior Counsel. In 2014, he founded PT Law, PLLC.
Peter has published several legal articles in both the Fordham Journal of Corporate & Finance Law as well as the Houston Business Journal. He has also published a chapter in a book by the Ark Group. He has presented in the area of employment agreements to various medical professionals.
If Peter is not in the office, then you may catch him perfecting his back hand on the tennis courts or bluffing his way to a large pot at the poker tables. He has two young children, a boy and a girl, and has been married to his lovely bride for seven years.
