Some of you already know Peter — or you know his work. Peter started at Turke & Strauss last year as one of our network attorneys handling projects on a contract basis. We liked Peter so much, we convinced him to join the team.
Mary Turke, co-founder of Turke & Strauss, has this to say about Peter (who happens to be her older brother): “Peter and I overlapped during two years of study at the University of Wisconsin Law School. Then, we both ended up in big-firm private practice. Now, it is only fitting that Peter join Turke & Strauss. We founded Turke & Strauss as a new model of law firm to engage talented “freelance” attorneys like Peter.”
After practicing at Reinhart Boerner Van Deuren in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for years, Peter wanted to provide the same high quality of legal services to individuals and businesses in his community. Turke & Strauss’ innovative model provides attorneys like Peter flexibility in both schedule and workload. Peter works from Burlington, Wisconsin, where he resides. As a newly-elected School Board Member for the Burlington Area School District, Peter will continue his community involvement there while also engaging clients in Southeastern Wisconsin and the greater Milwaukee area.
Turke & Strauss serves a wide-range of clients, from multinational corporations to small businesses and individuals. By investing in cutting edge technology as opposed to expensive office space, Turke & Strauss can provide exceptional legal services at reduced rates.
