Pete Wifler joined Salvi, Salvi & Wifler, P.C. as partner in 1990. He has earned an exemplary reputation based on his expertise in the areas of family law and small business/corporate matters.

Upon graduating from John Marshall Law School with High Distinction Honors in 1987, Pete joined the Chicago law firm of Ungaretti & Harris and practiced there until he joined Salvi, Salvi & Wifler. Prior to law school, Pete worked as a CPA for Ernest & Young. He has been successful in utilizing his CPA background to assist his clients on financial issues affecting their legal needs.

Currently, Pete represents individuals in all types of divorce and family law matters. His approach has been to seek resolution of emotionally charged matters by taking into strong consideration the financial and emotional toll on the clients, and oftentimes their children. Pete's goals are aligned with his clients' goals, and he believes most cases should be settled without a trial. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, however, he is prepared to seek a court resolution when necessary.

Pete also represents many individuals and small businesses with their corporate matters, from drafting and reviewing contracts, to assisting with purchase and sales transactions.
