Attorney Profile

Focusing her practice exclusively on family law matters, Tami L. Peterson is an attorney at the Saxton Peterson Law Firm, located in Mankato, Minnesota. She has experience in highly complicated divorce cases that present complex issues such as the division of business and farming interests and retirement and investment accounts. Ms. Peterson also handles custody and visitation determinations as well as child support and spousal maintenance petitions. While she will sometimes, depending upon the situation, suggest that a divorcing client attempt to reach an accord on these issues through informal negotiations or in one or more mediation sessions, she is a fierce and passionate advocate for her clients' interest when appearing before a judge.

Ms. Peterson has experience in nonmatrimonial family law matters as well. She has represented unwed fathers who are seeking to establish paternity so that they can be awarded parenting time and other rights with respect to their children. Ms. Peterson also assists clients who are seeking a modification of an existing order, such as one related to spousal maintenance or child support due to an unforeseen financial downturn, and she works with divorced clients in matters involving parental relocation.

A native of Minnesota, Ms. Peterson attended Mankato State University, where she received a Bachelor of Science in marketing. She then went on to attend what was then known as William Mitchell College of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor. Ms. Peterson has been admitted to practice before all Minnesota state courts since 2003. She is a former chair of the Family Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar Association, and she is an active participant in the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.
