Halley J. Peters has over a decade of experience practicing and is licensed in Michigan, California, and Florida. Ms. Peters has rigorously defended individuals and large financial institutions, including UBS, Merrill Lynch, and Wells Fargo. In addition to practicing in the field, Ms. Peters has clerked for Florida Supreme Court Justice E.C. Perry and Appellate Judge Leslie B. Rothenberg at the Third District Court of Appeals for Florida.

In the past few years, Ms. Peters has successfully secured dismissals for multiple misdemeanor cases and achieved significant reductions in several felony charges to misdemeanors, including a reduction of a felony DUI with injury and a hit-and-run case to misdemeanor. Her practice spans a wide range of criminal cases, including felony arson, DUI, hit-and-run, fraud, and sex trafficking, as well as misdemeanor domestic violence, DUI, theft, driving offenses, traffic violations, and disturbing the peace. Her extensive experience and strategic approach ensure that her clients receive the best possible outcomes, regardless of the severity of the charges.

Her passion for criminal justice stems from her experience working in jails and institutions, including teaching law in a correctional facility for teenage felons for the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice and working in the first drug courts in Miami, Florida. Moreover, she concentrated her law review thesis on the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, arguing that rehabilitation serves the public and reduces recidivism rates far better than incarceration.

Her personal and professional experience serving in rehabilitative facilities and her familiarity with the hurdles addiction presents to those in the legal system provides Ms. Peters a uniquely compassionate perspective. She is dedicated to ensuring those detained or alleged to have violated the law receive the very best outcome, legally and personally.

Ms. Peters graduated magna cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 2011 and with Distinction from the University of Michigan in 2008. She has served as President of the University of Michigan Alumni Club of Miami-Ft. Lauderdale and is a huge University of Michigan football fan.

Due to her passion and unique skill set, Ms. Peters is one of the few attorneys in Michigan with the understanding and connections to fully support her clients – from the courtroom to their living rooms. Halley can help you get your life back.
