Peter is an Associate Lawyer with Smitiuch Injury Law and has exclusively worked as an injury and wrongful death lawyer his entire career. He has extensive knowledge and experience in acting as a fearless advocate to obtain compensation and accident benefits for injured individuals and families.
 
Peter has acted as counsel on a number of trials and arbitration hearings at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice and the Financial Services Commission of Ontario.

In December 2014, as co-counsel with Mike and Megan, Peter helped to obtain a jury verdict against Glen Eagle Golf Club for over $1.8 million in damages and interest.
 
In March 2015, Peter was lead counsel with co-counsel, Luke, in a judge alone trial arising from serious personal injuries sustained by a minor Plaintiff while he boarding an amusement park ride with his father at Centreville Amusement Park (Bhatt v William Beasley Enterprises Limited). At trial, Peter successfully obtained a Judgment in favour of the minor Plaintiff and his parents against William Beasley Enterprises Limited.
 
Recently, Peter was acknowledged by the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association for his work as a trial lawyer and was presented with the 2016 Martin Wunder, Q.C. Outstanding New Lawyer Award.
