Peter Glazer started his law career as a deputy district attorney prosecuting criminal cases for Clackamas County. As a deputy DA Peter became known as an aggressive trial lawyer and advocate for victims' rights. In 1982 Peter started his own practice helping individuals and small businesses with civil problems including personal injury, wrongful death, divorce and contract disputes. In the 1980s Peter began volunteer work with MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving).
Peter and Steve Maurer then moved their offices to Kruseway Plaza to be the first law firm on prestigious Kruse Way. Today there are hundreds of lawyers in firms along Kruse Way.
Peter's legal work is complemented by his involvement in the community; he was the 2008 president of the Clackamas County Bar Association and among his activities are Rotary and the Royal Rosariansfor whom Peter served as the 2008 Prime Minister. Peter's past community activities include being president of the Rotary Club of Lake Oswego, a Rotary Assistant District Governor, co-chair of his children's junior high school parent organization, co-chair of the Rotary Lobster Feed and Auction, and a soccer and basketball coach of his children's teams.
Peter was appointed by four govenors (from Gov. Atiyeh to Gov. Kitzhaber) as Chair of the Governor’s Advisory Committee on DUII, a volunteer citizen board dedicated to reducing the terrible problem of drunk driving. When Peter stepped down after 18 years on the committee he took pride in the fact that total traffic fatalities in Oregon had dropped a whopping 25 per cent in just the last year of his service. Peter knows there is much still to be done to make our roads safe but he is proud of the accomplishments under his leadership. After he stepped down, Peter was awarded the state's Crystal Award "for outstanding leadership and dedicated service."
