Peter started his law career as a deputy district attorney prosecuting criminal cases for Clackamas County. As a deputy DA Peter became known as an aggressive trial lawyer and advocate for victims' rights. In 1982 Peter started his own practice helping individuals and small businesses with civil problems including personal injury, wrongful death, divorce and contract disputes.

In 1985 Peter and Steve Maurer (the firm was called Maurer & Glazer, P.C.) moved their offices to Kruseway Plaza to be the first law firm on prestigious Kruse Way. How things have changed: Today, Steve Maurer is the Presiding Judge of Clackamas County Circuit Court and there are hundreds of lawyers in firms on Kruse Way.

Peter's legal work is complemented by his involvement in the community; he was recently president of the Clackamas County Bar Association (CCBA), and among his activities are Rotary and Royal Rosarians, where Peter served as the 2008 Prime Minister. Peter's past community activities include being president of the Rotary Club of Lake Oswego, co-chair of his children's junior high school parent organization, co-chair of the Rotary Lobster Feed and Auction, and a soccer and basketball coach of his children's teams.

Peter served under four govenors (from Gov. Atiyeh to Gov. Kitzhaber) as Chair of the Governor's Advisory Committee on DUII, a volunteer citizen board dedicated to reducing the terrible problem of drunk driving. Peter stepped down after almost 18 years on the committee. When he stepped down from the committee, Peter took pride in the fact that total traffic fatalities in Oregon had dropped a whopping 25 per cent in just the last year of his service. Peter knows there is much still to be done to make our roads safe but he is proud of the accomplishments under his leadership. After he stepped down, Peter was awarded the state's Crystal Award "for outstanding leadership and dedicated service."
