Peter J. Hickey
My name is Peter Hickey. I am the Supervising Attorney of the Litigation Department at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti.
Some of the classes I took in college were debate type classes, creative writing type classes where you could be expressive. And I think those were the areas where I realized that this was something that I like to do. Also, being able to help people, I was a TA and kind of a mentor for some of the classwork I took as well. And it was kind of gratifying to see, you know, people being helped by your efforts as well. And that certainly plays a major role in what our goal is at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti, and what I do specifically there.
My favorite superhero. It’d have to be my wife because when we had twins and my oldest son was 19 months old, you know, she was a superhero. And I worked a lot of overtime during that period of time. So, she was fantastic. So, it would have to be my wife.
What I like to do outside of work, I dabble in golf. And I say dabble because there’s not a lot of time, but I play in a league once a week. So, I enjoy that. I like to read. I do a lot of reading in my free time. With my boys involved in sports, seems like my wife and I are traveling quite a lot. We’re going down, they’re running nationals this weekend in North Carolina, so we’re traveling down there. They ran States last weekend, so we travel a lot for our boys. My wife and I run a little bit ourselves as well. So, every now and then, she’ll pull me into a 5K with her. So, yeah, it’s a busy life all the way around.
There have been many, many great days at Martin, Harding & Mazzotti. I mean, even recently this year, an elderly woman who lost her husband under tragic circumstances, we were able to work out a result for her that assures that she’s going to be secure, which gave her some, you know, bit of security and assurance going forward without her loved one.
