BiographyPeter is licensed in Idaho and manages the firm's Coeur d’Alene office.
Peter Dan graduated with honors from the Concordia University School of Law in Boise, Idaho. During law school, Peter received the CALI Award (high score in class) in Contracts I, Torts II Strict Liability, Federal Courts, Property Law, Bankruptcy law and U.C.C. 9 Secured transactions. He also received the high score for the Idaho Bar Exam. Peter’s work prior to enrollment in law school involved counseling, law enforcement, and extensive work with youth. Peter’s career focus has always been in effectively helping and serving those individuals he has worked with. Peter also has spent extensive time in community volunteer work and in being a foster parent to 15 children over 8 years.
Because of this commitment to community service, Peter chose to work with the Kootenai County Public Defenders following his graduation from law school. Aside from receiving extensive litigation experience in the Kootenai County court system during his years of employment with the Public Defenders Office, Peter also became exposed to family law given his duties in the court’s dependency system. Ultimately, Peter felt that he could best serve his clients through a private practice in family law. In addition to managing the Coeur d’Alene Crouse Erickson office, Peter’s practice focuses on divorce, custody, visitation, child and spousal support, and third party rights. Peter believes that his clients should have open access to him and he intentionally keeps a balanced and limited caseload so that client’s needs are quickly met and their cases are actively advanced.
Peter enjoys spending time with his wife and family in the North Idaho outdoors. He continues to enjoy volunteering in community activities as well.Close
