Meet the Team

Peter Matus

Practice Areas

Peter’s family migrated to Australia in 1966 from Europe. Settling in Brisbane, his parents encouraged learning and it resulted in all 5 children going on to higher education.

Peter chose law given his passion for seeing fairness in how people were treated. He began his legal career as a barrister, and then moved to becoming a solicitor in 1994 to have closer contact with people.

Following 2 decades of helping people recover from serious accidents, in November 2019 Peter joined ESJ Law as part of their native title team. Peter sees reparation to First Nations people as the most important social and legal issue for our community, and is honoured to join the team striving to achieve meaningful outcomes for our clients.

With clients from NSW, QLD and WA, spread across vast areas, the challenges of guiding large area claims in the new area of native title compensation work will more than match his passion for justice and making a major impact on deserving clients.
