Gordon Peters was born and raised in Lynchburg, Virginia. Growing up with an attorney father and seeing the impact that his legal services were able to have on their community was always inspiring, but Gordon initially took a different professional route— pursuing degrees in English Literature and spending his first working years as a teacher. Despite a budding teaching career, Gordon still felt a calling to do more.
Gordon decided to follow in his father’s footsteps by serving his community as a lawyer and enrolled at The University of Richmond School of Law. Upon graduating with his law degree in 1999, he practiced corporate law for a little while in Richmond, before his dad persuaded him to come back to Lynchburg and join his family law firm.
Since 1982, E. Gordon Peters, Sr. had been giving back to their community by offering attentive, thorough, and knowledgeable legal guidance to those who needed it. Working alongside his father, the family business continued to thrive and make a positive impact on their community.
Gordon’s background as a teacher, lead him to the area of family law where he has had the ability to help families with children get through difficult times. After having experienced the legal process of divorce first-hand, it seared the law into his brain in a way he can never forget. He understands the emotional suffering that a separating family goes through and knows how to help you find a way to move forward.
