Pustorino Mediation Services, PA; Peter has over 45 years of litigation experience and an unmatched reputation for fairness, balance and efficiency in resolving disputes. Peter has become one of Minnesota's most sought-after mediators in workers' compensation cases and other civil litigation matters. As one of the most experienced and accomplished workers' compensation lawyers in the State of Minnesota, Peter's incomparable mix of medical and vocational knowledge, experience and credibility have made him one of the State's most trusted voices in resolving workers' compensation disputes.
