Following a judicial clerkship, Peter Brodhead joined Spangenberg Shibley & Liber in 1980 and has been a partner since 1988.
"At Spangenberg, I have had the privilege of learning from and working with some of the finest trial lawyers in this area," he says. "After thirty years here, I still feel that there is no finer group of attorneys that work so skillfully and diligently on behalf of their clients and their causes."
TIRELESS ADVOCACY ON BEHALF OF CLIENTS

- fatal cancers resulting from substances such as benzene and vinyl chloride monomer fumes;
- respiratory disease due to metalworking fluid overexposure; and
- serious lung complications arising from asthma medication contaminated with harmful and potentially fatal bacteria.

He has also litigated:
- cases on behalf of victims who suffered catastrophic injuries arising from vehicular and trucking collisions, as well as defective machinery and other products;
