Peter J. Mackey

Attorney in Bradenton, FL
Peter Mackey started Mackey Law Group, P.A., along with his wife, Catherine Zoller Mackey, in 1991. Prior to that, Peter worked for large law firms practicing litigation. Upon graduation from law school, he first joined the Hancock & Estabrook law firm in Syracuse, New York. Peter then moved to Florida and joined Rudnick & Wolfe in Tampa. After two years there, he joined Holland & Knight in its Bradenton office and in 1991, when Peter joined his wife who had already started practicing on her own in town. Peter was born in 1958 in Syracuse, New York. His family moved to Setauket, New York on the North Shore of Long Island, which is where Peter spent most of his youth. He attended Allegheny College in Meadville, Pennsylvania for two years and graduated cum laude with his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics in 1980 from SUNY at Stony Brook on Long Island, where he was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa. He then spent two years as the "yard manager" for a large marina/boat dealership in Port Jefferson, New York before attending Boston College Law School, receiving his Juris Doctor in 1985. While he considers himself to be a litigator, Peter's peers and adversaries will attest that he is definitely not your typical "office lawyer/motion practitioner." He has successfully been the lead attorney in conducting many bench and jury trials to conclusion in both federal and state court. His clients are predominantly contractors, subcontractors, and developers. However, the firm also represents individuals, financial institutions, and any other entities or persons needing both litigation avoidance advice as well as trial representation. The scope of Peter's litigation experience includes standard collections, mechanic's lien prosecution, surety work, contract disputes, commercial foreclosures, adversary proceedings within the bankruptcy courts, and all aspects of a general commercial litigation practice. He is admitted to practice in both Florida and New York state and federal courts. Peter and Cathie live in Bradenton and have four children: Cayla, a student at Vanderbilt University and Matt, Alexandra, and Kendall who are teenage triplets. When he is not working, Peter likes to fish, hunt, and help coaching youth sports. In the summer, you can find the Mackeys at their children's sporting events or out on the water off of the West Coast of Florida or in the Keys. In the winter, the Mackeys are busy doing kid stuff.
