Attorney Peter D. Herger, an experienced family, matrimonial and business attorney, knows the value of legal insight, determination in fulfilling client’s needs, and the application of justice for the best interests of our clients.
Attorney Herger focuses his practice in civil litigation and business/transactional advising, as well as family/matrimonial law, real estate, and catastrophic personal injury.
Mr. Herger has built experience in these areas of critical need --where proper advice in high stakes proceeding is the most important factor in our clients’ success.
As such, our office’s satisfied client base ranges from international, multimillion dollar corporations and businesses, to high net worth individuals going through the pain and frustration of divorce, to victims of personal injury and medical malpractice.
Furthermore, as a result of Mr. Herger's success, his practice extends to the state and federal courts of both New York and Connecticut.
Attorney Herger is an active participant and member of numerous professional and civic organizations, including the Westchester County Bar Association, the New York State Bar Association, and Legal Services of the Hudson Valley. Participation in pro bono Legal Services is consistent with Attorney Herger's belief that access to justice is fundamental for all citizens in our American legal system. Mr. Herger has also volunteered his time and efforts to curate CityCenter Danbury's Summer Concert Series in his hometown of Danbury, Connecticut.
In his time out of the office, Mr. Herger is an accomplished musician, singer, and songwriter, with his own rock n' roll band. His compositions have thus far been licensed for use in programming on MTV networks, Showtime, and Discovery channel, among others.
