Peter Flowers

Meyers & Flowers LLC

A partner in the firm of Meyers & Flowers, Pete has represented countless families whose lives have been tragically changed because of medical malpractice, catastrophic injuries from workplace injuries and automobile accidents, and from defective products. He has also represented the victims and families of victims of nursing home abuse and of sexual abuse. His attention to the special needs of those clients comes from a strong sense of loyalty to them and a shared desire to assure no one else experiences their pain.

“As a lawyer, I live and breathe my client’s cases. Some of my best friends are my clients; people I still talk to, kids I still take care of on many different levels. This is different from a one-time injury that gets fixed and goes away; these are catastrophic events that forever tie you to your client. If you don’t get emotionally involved, you’re not properly representing them.”

Born in Naperville in 1967, Pete’s roots in the community are long-standing, and include a strong place in his heart for children and those impacted by cancer. He actively supports a transitional home in Naperville that helps medically fragile children leave the hospital and return home to their families.

Pete received his undergraduate degree from Loyola University in 1989 and his law degree from DePaul University in 1992. That same year he was licensed to practice law in Illinois and U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. Pete is also admitted to practice pro hac vice in Massachusetts, Florida and other states.

Pete is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the DuPage County Bar Association, the Chicago Bar Association, the American Trial Lawyers Association, the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Association, and the International Society of Barristers.
