About Distinction Legal

Distinction Legal was established in September of 2014 by firm principal and company director, Peter Rentoulis.

Peter has always had a desire to serve his community and is currently an elected member on Playford Council. With long held entrepreneurial aspirations and a love of the law that has seen him work at various law firms in country South Australia, including the Barossa Valley, as well as metropolitan Adelaide, Peter decided it was time to open his own business and do things his own way.

From humble beginnings, Distinction Legal is now located at the Old Church site on Angle Vale Road in Angle Vale. The firm has grown organically, now employing two partners and one support staff. It is expected that another office will open over the next twelve months in the north eastern suburbs.
