Pamela A. Peterson, Devine Millimet & Branch
Recognized as a Lawyer of the Year in Family Law
We selected nine Lawyers of the Year for portraits and asked them to share a favorite quotation and to tell us why they love what they do. These profiles appeared along with Woodward/White’s annual Best Lawyers in America list, as published in our November issue.
“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. Do the thing you think you cannot do.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt
Why do you love what you do? “In my practice area of family law, many of my clients are facing one of the most challenging times in their lives: the breakup of a relationship or a family. There is not only a profound sadness in what they are experiencing, but a hard reality requiring them to move forward with difficult decisions that impact their future. My role is to advise them and guide them through the turbulent times. Issues and obstacles, which appear insurmountable at first, can many times be resolved without court intervention. If that is not possible, I stand with my clients in court to achieve a litigated result. I enjoy family law as every day is different, but more importantly, I help people through a difficult phase in their lives.”
