About The Peterson Firm

With more than 35 years of legal experience, our founding attorney, Jim Peterson, started The Peterson Firm to focus on all aspects of family law, including divorce, child custody, post-divorce modifications, and prenuptial and postnuptial agreements.

Prior to founding his own practice, Jim worked for a large Atlanta law firm handling complicated corporate litigation cases. This invaluable experience provided him with the knowledge and skills necessary to handle complex divorce cases involving significant assets and family businesses.
