Home

I’m a Harvard Law School graduate who worked in several legal capacities in Washington, D.C. starting in 1962.  I had my own law practice from 1970 to 1979, when the President appointed me an Associate Judge of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.  I became a Senior Judge (semi-retired) in 1994.  I sat as a senior judge for several weeks each year from 1994 to 2018 until I retired upon moving to Winston-Salem, N.C.

In various contexts, particularly teaching an adult education course on “The Legal Process” several times (see Post No. 19), it’s been helpful for me to be able to refer people efficiently and conveniently to documents on this website, including some I’ve written myself.  And since I’ve retired I’m freer to express political and other views, so I’ve expanded things a bit.  I hope this site is helpful, informative, interesting, and, for some posts, even fun.

    The events of the last week should make your hair grow back. I must admit I still am in shock.
    Hope you are both well.
    Fondly Ann Drechsel
    You both look great and I was happy to see your picture. Hope next time without masks.

    Peter, good column about global warming. Thanks for writing. I’d love to speak with you about the work I’m doing. Maybe we could meet for coffee or lunch.
