Welcome to Calderhead, Lockemeyer and Peschke Law Office
Our attorneys have based their careers on defending those who have been sued and accused of wrongdoing in civil lawsuits. We have defended doctors, lawyers, nurses, hospitals, nursing homes, insurance companies, governmental entities, other professionals and businesses threatened with allegations of inappropriate conduct and behavior.

Our painstaking attention to detail is a hallmark of our firm. When we say “Our life’s work is to protect your life’s work,” it is more than a motto.
