Peter has been named to The Daily Record’s “Power 20 Litigation” list, and has received The Daily Record’s Attorneys of the Year Leader in Law Award.  He has an AV Preeminent® peer review rating from Martindale-Hubbell, and he has been selected to The Best Lawyers in America® for Land Use and Zoning Law.
