Peter J. Fazio received his law degree from New York Law School and joined Aaronson Rappaport Feinstein & Deutsch, LLP after graduation. Mr. Fazio's practice concentrates on defending an assortment of tort-related matters with a focus on product liability and medical malpractice. He has significant experience in the defense of product liability suits against major automobile manufacturers and has participated in several high exposure cases with catastrophic injuries and fatalities resulting in defense verdicts. Mr. Fazio's client service and work product was recognized by Ford Motor Company, which named him as one of its "Next Generation Trial Lawyers."  Peter is admitted to practice law in the state and federal courts of New York and New Jersey.

Working closely with clients and his ability to distil complex scientific issues have resulted in obtaining several preclusion orders pursuant to both the Frye and Daubert standards.
