Macomb County's Hard-Working Legislator

Peter J. Lucido, YOUR State Senator

Meet Peter J. Lucido


Peter J. Lucido graduated from Detroit College of Law (1988), now known as Michigan State University College of Law, nearly 30 years ago.

One of eight children – Peter’s father was “The Green Grocer,” who delivered fresh fruits and vegetables door-to-door to families in Macomb County, and later co-founded Lucido’s Insurance Agency, Inc. 

Lucido’s passage through law school didn’t come easy. He attended classes at night, and paid his way by working many jobs. Before earning his law degree, Peter had earned his master’s degree in business from Central Michigan University and his licenses in insurance, real estate and securities.

Peter was the founder and president of one of Macomb County’s largest law firms. When Peter began practicing law, nearly 30 years ago, his first hire was a military veteran who is still working for the law firm today!

Peter credits his broad education for preparing him to run a successful business. He will use that knowledge and experience along with his unparalleled work ethic to get things done in Lansing!

Peter J. Lucido served as State Representative for the 36th District from 2015-2018, he was a fierce advocate for his constituents and all of Macomb County. He was humbled to be overwhelmingly elected in November 2018 to the Michigan Senate and looks forward to continuing to be a strong voice for a brighter tomorrow for all the residents and families of Macomb County.

The 8th State Senate District is located in Macomb County and includes: Bruce Township, Chesterfield Township, Harrison Township, Lenox Township, Mt Clemens city, Ray Township, St Clair Shores city, Shelby Township, Utica city, Village of Grosse Pointe Shores.
