Kari A. Peterson, Esquire

Kari A. Peterson brings her competitive spirit to Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath.

Kari recently graduated from William & Mary Law School, the oldest law school in this country, located in Williamsburg, Virginia with her Juris Doctor in May 2020. She attended Florida International University and was a two-sport scholarship athlete in both indoor and beach volleyball. Kari was the captain of the nationally ranked FIU beach volleyball team. She graduated as a Phi Beta Kappa member from FIU in three years with the highest GPA of any graduating student athlete.

Kari is a South Florida native. As the daughter of a personal injury attorney, Kari grew up understanding the commitment her father made to be an advocate for others. She will bring that same devotion to her personal injury, medical malpractice, and products liability practice, fighting for clients who have suffered from the negligence of others.

This same competitive spirit and team leadership is what drives Kari to be one of the best attorneys at the prestigious personal injury law firm of Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath.
