They are the parents of two sets of twin daughters, Katy and Ally, and Carly and Anne.
When asked to reflect on his years in the Newman Grove office, Peetz said, “I have enjoyed working for the families of Boone, Madison and Platte counties for over 30 years. It is a privilege to work for so many good people.”
Jeff focuses primarily on estate and trust planning and administration, including litigation matters, mediation, and business and wealth succession planning. He also works with clients in community banking financial institutions, and agricultural law matters. His clients in the community range from individuals and small business owners to large agricultural operators and community business owners. He advises clients on a variety of contractual matters relating to the operation of their businesses, including business succession planning, and also serves as a mediator in estate and trust disputes.
