Fighting harassers isn't just a business:

Sexual harassment and discrimination based on race, sexual orientation, age, nationality (and other categories) is illegal.

Zealous representation for those harmed by sexual harassment and discrimination

Some lawyers merely dabble in harassment and discrimination cases. We don’t dabble. We believe that people harmed by harassment and discrimination deserve serious experience, out-of-the-box strategy, and laser-like focus.

Since 1990, we have focused our practice on sexual harassment and discrimination cases. That’s why we’re the best choice for your case- hands down, every time. 

Aggressive advocacy to right wrongs

Harassment and discrimination impact all areas of your life. We aren’t afraid to think outside the box and come up with smart legal solutions to address your unique situation.

Get the “Law Dog” on your side

You need a tough lawyer to fight for you. Lori Peterson is ready to jump in and throw down in a good old-fashioned street brawl to ensure you get the justice you deserve.


I’ve been fighting sexual harassment, discrimination and other injustices ever since I was a kid. My passion for justice fuels my law practice, as well as my daily life.

I spent my childhood in the midwest, raised in a town of 1200. By the age of 12, I was working on Jimmy Carter’s presidential campaign—from knocking on doors to dropping literature. By age 17, I was the co-chair of our county DFL party and served on the DFL State Central Committee. From there, I worked on statewide political races, founded an animal rights organization, and started an animal rescue and adoption nonprofit that still saves hundreds of orphaned animals every year. I was awarded the Harry S. Truman Scholarship for the state of Minnesota and used this national scholarship to attend law school (University of Minnesota, Class of 1990).

I continue with activism and presentations nationwide against sexism, animal abuse, violence against women and more. In addition to my law practice, I run a small animal sanctuary and work to educate the public about veganism and how they can stop animal abuse. My passion for justice stems in large part from my long-term friendship with President Jimmy Carter, who has shaped and influenced my commitment to equality, justice and philanthropy.

When you need someone who isn’t afraid to take on the big guys, I’m standing by to help. Whether you’re litigating against bankers, lawyers, professional athletes or CEOs, I’m not intimidated by status, financial resources or fame. The bigger they are, the harder they fall!

When you need aggressive, passionate advocacy, I am ready to stand up and fight for you.

“She is an extra special person. She is enthusiastic and vivacious and determined and idealistic…very forceful and eloquent. She’s been just as enthusiastic on environmental issues or mistreatment of animals…I think this protection of women’s rights is a continuation of her interest in things that are innovative and idealistic.”
