We are excited to welcome Mr. Peter Ehrhardt to our Board of Directors!
Peter graduated from the University of Minnesota law school in 1980. He moved to Alaska that same year and began working for a small firm in Bethel. After three years, he moved to Sitka and later to Kenai, where he resides today. Peter was a member of the plaintiffs’ trial team which obtained a $5 billion verdict in the Exxon Valdez litigation. For his work on that case, Peter received the 1995 Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from the Trial Lawyers for Public Justice. Peter was co-counsel in Re: Glacier Bay, a class action arising out of a 1987 oil spill in upper Cook Inlet which resulted in a $51 million settlement. Peter also litigated against the Sitka Pulp Mill for dioxin pollution of Sitka Sound. Peter has served many local boards including the United Way and Tsalteshi Trails Association. He is a lifetime member of the Nature Conservancy and passionate about Alaska’s wildlife.
