Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Commends Maslon Attorney Peter Doely for 'Exceptional' Commitment to Pro Bono Work

June 10, 2021

Maslon Attorney Peter Doely has received a letter from Minnesota Supreme Court Chief Justice Lorie S. Gildea thanking him for his "extraordinary service representing Minnesotans in need of legal help."

Gildea wrote that the Minnesota State Bar Association's Access to Justice Committee "has brought to my attention a small number of attorneys whose commitment to pro bono has been exceptional. You are one of those few." She cited Peter's work with a musician couple, referred to as Andy and Karen, who lost their studio—including all their musical instruments—to a fire in the wake of the 2020 George Floyd protests. Peter helped them secure insurance coverage for what they had lost. He also dedicated his time and expertise to assist several other businesses who faced financial ruin, Gildea noted. "You are answering the highest calling of our profession by helping to make equal access to justice a reality." Attorneys receiving the recognition were nominated from legal services programs, law firms, and corporations.

Peter is a business litigator focused on resolving construction and insurance coverage disputes. He provides practical advice to help his clients navigate all phases of their construction projects, from contract negotiations to asserting or defending claims. He also advises insurance policyholders regarding their rights and asserts those rights on their behalf. In addition, Peter serves as an adjunct professor for the University of Minnesota Law School’s Insurance Law Clinic.

He was recognized by Super Lawyers on the 2020 Minnesota Rising Stars List and selected for inclusion in Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in 2021.
