David E. Peterson, Esq.

Massachusetts Estate Planning Attorney

Hello, and thank you for visiting this website. 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 and Trust and Estate Administration. 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 a sophisticated, boutique estate planning practice in Worcester, Massachusetts, where I was able to hone my skills at developing solutions for clients across every station in life. In 2010 I left Worcester to practice law in 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 family-owned companies in several phases of business.

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.

My family includes my amazing wife, Dan, and our most-excellent son, Timothy. We live in Boxford, Massachusetts.

Thanks again for visiting. I hope that you enjoy the website and 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.
