Car Accident Lawyer
Peter Mattar graduated Magna Cum Laude from Binghamton University, earning a Bachelor of Science in Management with a concentration in Finance. He then attended Syracuse University College of Law in Syracuse, New York, where he earned his Juris Doctor and graduated Cum Laude.
A third-generation attorney, Peter grew up surrounded by many family members who are attorneys. From an early age, he listened to stories about the difference attorneys can make in their client’s lives. Those stories resonated with Peter and inspired him to continue his family’s tradition of service by becoming an attorney himself. He has become passionate about the law and likens it to solving a puzzle, saying, “In a lawsuit, the facts and laws are like puzzle pieces. An attorney’s job is making those puzzle pieces fit together in the way most advantageous to the client. I love finding a winning combination.”
Peter chose to focus on personal injury law because of the injustice that clients suffer. He has deep compassion for the innocent victims whose lives have been ripped apart by their injuries. “Many of our clients can’t work, can’t sleep, and sometimes can’t even stand. Those limitations put a strain on every aspect of their lives, from finances to relationships. To add insult to injury, this harm was caused by the careless actions of another. My job is to hold that wrongdoer responsible and give my clients the resources they need to rebuild their lives.”
Through witnessing his family members help injured clients, Peter has also learned the vital importance of community. “I believe that every individual has to do what they can to help their neighbors. At William Mattar, we make a difference in our community by helping people receive compensation for their injuries while deterring irresponsible driving.”
When Peter is not pushing the wheels of justice forward, he enjoys several activities that keep him on the move, such as hiking, swimming, weightlifting, and playing various sports. He also enjoys continually learning about a variety of subjects, including politics, history, and philosophy.
