A Team Of Seasoned Advocates

At Telpner Peterson Law Firm, LLP, our office has served our community since it was first opened in 1952 by our founder Maynard Telpner. Since that time, we have worked diligently to help our clients with all of their legal needs. Our attorneys are skilled in a range of legal matters including estate planning and probate litigation, creating plans for our clients so that their families can focus on celebrating their memory rather than figuring out what is to be done.

We also serve the local community of our town in civil cases, both for individuals as well as for small businesses. Many people struggling financially come to us for help filing bankruptcy, giving them the chance to work toward a fresh start or allowing a business to reorganize so that it can continue operating.

Seasoned Litigators And Legal Counselors Investing In Our Community

Our attorneys each bring their own unique skills and experience to the cases that we take at our office. With our diverse experiences and backgrounds, we leverage our collective knowledge and skills to ensure that we are optimally preparing our cases and honing our legal strategies so that we can focus on accomplishing your goals.

In addition to their work in the office, our attorneys are also active members of our community, investing their time participating in community organizations, serving in leadership roles and working to improve our local neighborhoods. This takes many forms, including civic organizations, local charities and professional organizations.

We Are Prepared To Handle Nearly Any Legal Challenge
