Pete’s passion for what he does comes from personal experience. Pete and his mom were hit by a drunk driver when he was 10 years old. While he fortunately walked away uninjured, his mom was not as lucky. She was knocked unconscious by the force of the collision and sustained severe injuries. She had to undergo surgery and was unable to work for months due to her injuries. The financial stress caused by her inability to work and the insurance company’s refusal to do the right thing was clear even to a kid.
