Biographical Notes:

design element
Pete is a solo practitioner, having formed Pete Palmer Law LLC in late 2016 to formally concentrate his practice on the mediation of civil matters throughout Indiana and Kentucky.  With an office located in New Albany, Indiana (just across the Ohio River from Louisville, Kentucky), he spends about half of his professional time in each of the two states, often hosting mediations at his new office, which was designed with mediations in mind.

While his passion is mediation, he will upon request, consider arbitration of selected nursing home cases and will also undertake selected Medical Review Panel Chair work in both Indiana and Kentucky.
His 23 years of litigation experience includes medical malpractice, products liability and general personal injury defense work with two prominent defense firms in Louisville, Kentucky, as well as over a decade of plaintiff's litigation experience in similar areas in both states.
