Charles Franklin Peterson Jr

Charles Franklin Peterson Jr is Boise, Idaho criminal defense lawyer and trial attorney Chuck Peterson, and for nearly thirty years I have been a practicing trial lawyer. I focus on providing the best defense possible to my clients facing criminal charges, and trying the best possible case for my clients in civil actions. In every case I try to bring a sense of reason to the situation, and search for the real story. Every case is a story. I try to answer the tough questions: What really happened? And why? Those are the same questions that jury will ask. I have tried well over two hundred civil and criminal cases, and represented people in virtually every level of legal proceeding – from simple misdemeanors to complex felony cases, in state and federal courts throughout the United States.
