Peterson, Matthew_cover photoAs an attorney with more than three decades of experience in trial law, Matthew K. Peterson recognizes one of the greatest challenges faced by the legal industry today is “attracting young lawyers into [the] profession, or law in general.” To those who are considering a future in law, he advises focusing on the big picture, and having a firm grasp on time management. “Know the clients’ needs and know your options.” Through proper preparation, attorneys can ensure that they have represented clients to the best of their legal ability.
