Peter was one of the top junior tennis players in the Netherlands. Peter’s tireless competitive nature was further developed while playing on the Varsity of the University of Alabama tennis team while obtaining his degree in corporate finance. He was raised on the fundamental principles of hard work and fairness to everyone, and lives his life and operates his law practice with those basic tenants at the forefront of his mind. He deeply cares for those who have been wronged by the recklessness or arrogance of others, and true to his competitive nature welcomes a fight against those who would act with such disregard as to mistreat their fellow man.
