Judge leaves the bench, rejoins LO law firm

Clackamas County Circuit Court Judge Steven L. Maurer is returning to his private law practice starting Friday.by: SUBMITTED - Maurer

He will rejoin his former law firm in Lake Oswego, which is changing its name to Glazer, Maurer & Peterson, P.C.

Maurer, who served as presiding judge from 2006 through 2010, has presided over a variety of civil and criminal cases. Before his 1988 appointment to the Clackamas County Circuit Court, Maurer worked in both private practice and as the deputy district attorney in Marion and Clackamas counties.

“Steve was a great trial lawyer when he went on the bench,” Peter Glazer, a Lake Oswego attorney, said. “Steve is compassionate, as smart as they come and skilled in advocacy. He will serve his new clients well.”

Maurer joins another veteran trial lawyer, Larry Peterson, in teaming up with Glazer. Maurer’s private practice emphasizes personal injury, family law, criminal defense and general civil litigation. Peterson is “of counsel” to the firm. 

Maurer, who lives in Lake Oswego, has two children, both lawyers currently serving as deputy district attorneys. He was Lake Oswego High School PTO president, coached youth sports and coached mock trial teams for Lake Oswego High School.

Glazer, Maurer & Peterson, P.C., is one of Lake Oswego’s oldest law firms, dating back to 1982. The firm represents clients primarily in personal injury (auto accidents), insurance cases and in divorce cases. 

Glazer’s volunteer service work has included president of Lake Oswego Rotary Club, prime minister of the Royal Rosarians, president of the Clackamas County Bar Association and chair of the governor’s Advisory Committee Against Drunk Driving (appointed by four Oregon governors).
