Skilled Attorneys
With Real-World Experience

Our attorneys learned their trade through working in the real world. Glenn W. Peterson worked as a graphic artist and cartoonist since childhood and worked in the advertising agency world before entering the legal profession. A copyright dispute over his work as a teenager inspired him to become an intellectual property attorney. He has also owned/operated restaurants and is a licensed pilot.

Richard M. Watts, Jr., played minor league baseball for the Pittsburgh Pirates, worked in commercial real estate before law school, and served as in-house counsel for a telecommunications company. His inside knowledge of the real estate industry allows him to provide insights other lawyers may not have.

Finally got a minute to write this review. I have been having Jeremy Millstone handle many of our employment problems, or better our employer related problems. He's very thorough and understands employment law very well. If you are a business owner and need assistance with employee relations, he's the one! I am a small business owner but sometimes one needs help from someone who has the right answers. Don't hesitate to give him a call.
