As a young man, Peter Wallis grew up in California and served in the U.S. Army Infantry and was trained as a paratrooper. Before law school, Peter was an entrepreneur and owned several small apartment buildings, owned his own businesses, and practiced real estate.
Peter saw many problems with the legal and political system so he went to law school to be part of the solution. Peter received a Juris Doctor from Northwestern California University School of Law in 2015 and passed the California bar exam on his first attempt.
Peter has always been idealistic. He has been an advocate for family rights and a board member for a homeless youth non-profit organization. He wants to form non-profit organizations to promote legal reform, housing reform, and reducing political polarization.
Peter has two charming daughters, two grand-children, and has been with his wonderful wife, Denise, for 10 years.
