Cayce C. Peterson

Cayce-peterson

Cayce has been a part of The Lambert Firm since 2006. In his short tenure as an attorney, Cayce has already emerged as a skilled litigator and legal analyst, arguing and briefing new and important legal issues in the areas of insurance coverage, admiralty, products liability, whistleblower suits and personal injury. Since his admission to the Louisiana Bar, Cayce has become a reliable advocate for individuals and businesses, representing clients in both State and Federal Courts. His undergraduate education in physics and mathematics gives Cayce a unique understanding of technical and scientific issues which often arise in more complicated cases. Together with Hugh Lambert’s engineering background, the two attorneys create a formidable foe for any legal opponent, especially when science and engineering are important aspects of the case.
