Legal Elite – Criminal 2013
PETER C. ANDERSON, Beveridge & Diamond PC, Charlotte
My undergraduate education at Rutgers University gave me a rare and wonderful opportunity to learn about a variety of subjects during the first two years, followed by practical internships with different state agencies in the final years. I was also encouraged to take a leadership role in student government.

Favorite place: Asheville
Favorite book: he Man to See: Life of Edward Bennett Williams by Evan Thomas.
Hero: Judge Graham Mullen, who taught me how to try cases, as well as how judges temper justice with mercy.
