Kirsten Peterson

Associate || Greenville

Kirsten is an associate in the Greenville office, where she focuses her practice on representing clients’ interests in Employment Litigation. Kirsten welcomes a challenge and approaches complex legal disputes from the same position as her clients: as a principal with ‘skin in the game,’ not simply as a lawyer or advisor. Kirsten graduated from Clemson University with a bachelor’s degree in History and a minor in Business Administration.  She then went on to law school at the University of South Carolina School of Law, where she was awarded the Justice J.B. Ness Scholarship for her academic achievements and philanthropic works.  In law school she was Student Notes Editor of the South Carolina Law Review, and she received the award for Best Writing in the Joint Journal Writing Competition. She also received awards for earning the highest grades in Employment Discrimination, Sales, and Property Law.

Outside of work, Kirsten is a frequent runner, having completed three marathons. She enjoys cheering on the Clemson Tigers and advising an organization she founded, which builds wells in Uganda.
