About Peterson Law Office

Peterson Law Office is a private practice personal injury law firm that was founded by native Lexington, KY attorney Justin Peterson. Prior to becoming a successful full-time personal injury attorney, he represented several of the nation’s largest insurance carriers, businesses, and trucking companies, both defending and evaluating their claims. Recently the firm partnered with the prestigious firm of Whiteford, Taylor & Preston to significantly expand their personal injury, medical malpractice, and nursing home abuse legal resources.

This partnership has created one of the largest personal injury law firms in the state of Kentucky with over 200+ attorneys. That amount of legal experience coupled with our client-centered approach means our clients get the best possible legal representation without losing that personal attention.
