Gleason, Peter J.
Peter J. Gleason is a private practice lawyer who serves as counsel to Levine & Gilbert, a New York law firm specializing in personal injury, accident and health, insurance, wrongful death, civil law and service law.
A former New York City police officer and firefighter, Gleason earned a JD from City University of New York Law School. He was also a member of the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve for over 20 years before retiring as a lieutenant.
Aside from his work as a private practice lawyer, Gleason is involved in public service, as are his two brothers and his parents. He says that the family's dedication to the greater community is to give thanks for the opportunities that America afforded his four grandparents who emigrated from Ireland.
A good part of his practice consists of pro bono, socially conscience work. Gleason has spent considerable unpaid time on animal rights, representing 9-11 responders and raising awareness of an asbestos crisis in city schools.
A single parent, Gleason lives with his son, Kole, in New York City.
