A Tucson, Arizona native, Peter graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in mining engineering having interned multiple years for a multinational mining company and engineering consulting firm. He received his JD from the University of Arizona James E Rogers College of Law with a Certificate in Environmental Law, Science, and Policy and an article on abandoned mine reclamation published with the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation. Peter also obtained his LLM in International Energy Law and Policy from the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mining Law and Policy at the University of Dundee where he authored his dissertation on the interactions between renewable energy policies and natural gas in the United States and European Union.
Prior to joining the firm, Peter clerked for both the Environmental Enforcement Section of the Arizona Attorney General’s Office and the Natural Resources and Environment Section of the Colorado Attorney General’s Office where he became familiar with state and federal environmental regulations governing water, waste, mining, and oil and gas. As an associate with Carleton Gotlin Law, Peter looks forward to bringing his passion for natural resources to bear for the benefit of this great industry and the communities they support.
In his free-time, Peter enjoys hiking, camping, and the other benefits that come with transitioning from a scorching desert to the mountains.
