July 1, 2019

With great sadness, Miller Canfield announces that litigation attorney Peter Waldmeir died on June 28, 2019. He was 65 years old. The announcement was made by CEO Michael McGee.

“Peter will be profoundly missed, and the firm’s attorneys, staff and management extend our deepest condolences to his family, particularly his wife Sandra and daughters, Sara and Charlotte, as well as our colleagues who were fortunate enough to work with Peter and call him a friend and the clients to whom he was deeply committed,” McGee said.

A graduate of the University of Michigan and George Washington University, as a young lawyer Waldmeir clerked for then-Michigan Supreme Court Justice G. Mennen Williams. He became an attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice before joining Miller Canfield’s Litigation Group in 1984.

Waldmeir was a native of Mt. Clemens, Michigan, and a longtime resident of Grosse Pointe Farms, where he had served as a city councilman for several terms since 1995 and as Mayor Pro Tem from 2007 to 2009.

Waldmeir was a passionate supporter of the Old Newsboys’ Goodfellows Fund of Detroit, serving on its Board of Directors from 1989 until his death and as board president in 2007.
