A native of Murrysville, Pennsylvania, after being admitted to the practice of law Mr. Peppel served four years of active duty with the United States Air Force as a Judge Advocate (JAG). Upon release from active military duty he continued his association with the Air Force for the next twenty-five years as a Reserve Judge Advocate with assignments to Strategic Air Command and Air Force Material Command until his retirement from the Air Force as a lieutenant colonel.
After being released from active military service Mr. Peppel moved to Memphis, where he began a general practice of law with the firm that is now known as Peppel & Palazzolo, P.C., handling both civil and criminal matters. However, he quickly limited the focus of his practice to cases of contract litigation and creditor’s rights, such being the only legal disciplines which he now practices.
In addition to the private practice of law and military service Mr. Peppel also served as an adjunct instructor in the Legal Studies Department at the University of Memphis from 1984 until 2018, where he taught several courses, among them being Introduction to Law, Torts, Family Law, Civil Procedure and Contracts and the Uniform Commercial Code.
