Michelle Peterson joins Keller Rackauckas

July 03, 2014  |   Uncategorized   |     |   Comments Off on Michelle Peterson joins Keller Rackauckas

Keller Rackauckas LLP is pleased to announce that Michelle M. Peterson has joined the firm as Of Counsel. 

Michelle’s practice areas include appellate law, law and motion, and trial strategy.   During her legal career of 30+ years, Michelle has honed her craft in legal analysis, motion and writ practice in complex litigation, trial preparation and appellate advocacy.

Michelle has written hundreds of substantive motions and responses in federal and state trial courts, and a like volume of briefs and petitions in appellate courts. She has also done extensive “behind the scenes” analyses on settlement strategies and case-specific methods of persuading jurors, trial judges and arbitrators, often in matters with tens or hundreds of millions of dollars at stake. Some of these cases have had widespread media attention. She has orally argued dozens of appeals and a wide variety of motions at the trial level.

Michelle also worked as an enforcement attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission in Washington D.C., where she took testimony from approximately 200 witnesses, and obtained extensive first-hand experience in government investigative and administrative proceedings.

Michelle is a gifted and creative legal thinker who sees her function as an elite complement to trial attorneys working at the highest level. She is equally adept at drafting a complex appellate brief, an emergency midtrial motion that a local judge might review in 15 minutes, or anything in-between.
