Peter J. McKelroy
Peter J. McKelroy, born and raised in Memphis Tennessee is an associate at the Reaves Law Firm PLLC and licensed in Tennessee and Mississippi. His primary area of practice is personal injury, including catastrophic injury and wrongful death. Peter graduated from White Station High School and attended the University of Mississippi, where he graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in accountancy and a minor in marketing.
Following his undergraduate studies, Peter attended the University of Mississippi School of Law. While there, Peter worked in the low-income taxpayer clinic assisting people with limited resources where he would navigate and resolve difficult tax problems. After graduating Cum Laude, he began working as a law clerk for an experienced Circuit Court judge in Mississippi which provided him unique experience and familiarity with the inner workings of the legal system at an early age.
Peter then spent several years working for a respected insurance defense firm, primarily focusing on personal injury defense, premises liability, general liability, governmental liability, as well as professional malpractice and contractual disputes. This experience provided Peter with valuable insight into how defense attorneys and insurance adjusters and companies think and operate.
Ultimately, Peter decided that he would rather help people in difficult situations rather than insurance companies' bottom lines. Peter joined Reaves Law Firm PLLC to be the voice for everyday people and wants to use his experience to fight for you and to ensure that you receive fair compensation for your loss or injury.
