About this Blog
Hello, and thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Dave, and I am the founder of the Law Office of David E. Peterson, in Danvers, Massachusetts. My practice focuses on Estate Planning, Probate, and Corporate Law. What that really means is that I help people, families, and local businesses to plan for and respond to important events that touch all of our lives.
As an attorney, I meet with clients and listen to their concerns, with the goal of understanding them in their varied roles, in their families, in their careers, and in their communities. I strive to educate them about the vast array of legal opportunities at our disposal, which allow us to exceed our goals. And I aim to build lasting relationships, so that I can serve as a lifelong adviser.
I grew up in Leominster, Massachusetts, in a vibrant, Norman Rockwell-esque neighborhood. I attended college at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, and graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Design in 2004. In 2008 I graduated from Boston College Law School, where my interest in trusts and estates began.
After law school, I worked for Fusaro, Altomare & Ermilio, and Estate Preservation Law Offices, both in Worcester, Massachusetts. Both firms had very sophisticated estate planning practices, where I was able to hone my skills at developing solutions for clients across every station in life. In 2010 I left Worcester and moved to Swampscott, Massachusetts to practice law on the North Shore region of the Commonwealth. In my career thus far, I have drafted hundreds of wills and trusts, administered numerous estates, and represented many companies in several phases of business.
In January of 2011, I married my lovely wife, Dan, who is a constant source of support and inspiration. In February of 2011 I opened The Law Office of David E. Peterson, in Danvers. Opening a new practice in a new area has been a great challenge, and immensely satisfying. In June of 2011 I began this blog, with a twofold purpose. First, as a medium to educate the public about various legal issues that I see in my practice. Second, as a medium for my personal commentary on interesting legal and non-legal issues of the day.
Thanks again for reading. I hope that you enjoy the blog. I hope that you learn something new each time that you visit. And I hope that you will contact me if you have any questions, comments, advice, or if there is any way that I may be of service to you, your family, or your business.
