Kathleen Peterson

Robins Kaplan LLP

Kathleen Flynn Peterson has devoted her life to providing advocacy for people dealing with pain, suffering and loss. She began her career as a registered nurse, speaking for her patients’ needs and speaking up against institutional problems in the medical system in order to provide her patients with the best possible care.

Drawn to the law after serving as a juror, Kathleen has continued advocating against health care injustices by focusing her law practice on the representation of individuals and families who have experienced injury or death as a result of medical negligence.

Her medical/legal background, along with a commitment to courtroom excellence and a deep dedication to her clients and their families, has allowed Kathleen to make an important difference in the lives of the clients she represents.

As a result of her outstanding advocacy, Kathleen has been selected for membership in many prestigious, invitation-only trial lawyer organizations and she serves as a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Trial Attorneys, the International Society of Barristers, the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, and the American Bar Foundation.

She also is certified as a Civil Trial Specialist by the Civil Litigation Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association and is a frequent, sought-after speaker and lecturer on trial litigation strategies.

In addition, she has been an active member of the Minnesota Association for Justice, serving as their past president, and the American Association for Justice, formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the nation’s largest plaintiff’s trial bar.

In 2007, Kathleen served as the national president of this organization. She has been a member of their Board of Governors for 29 years, has served multiple terms on their Executive Committee, as well as chairing the organization’s educational arm for several terms. In 1999, she was honored with the association’s prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award.

Proud of the work she has done standing by the side of those who need her help to receive justice, Kathleen takes great pride in her family. Married to her husband Steve for 39 years, Kathleen is a mother to two now-grown sons and grandmother of two grandchildren.

She considers her roles as a mother, wife, daughter, and grandmother among her greatest achievements. Kathleen has also devoted countless hours to the broader community through her work as a legal educator and leader and as a board member of Minneapolis’ Children’s Theatre Company.
