  Joseph Preston "Pete" Strom, Jr. was born in Columbia, South Carolina in 1959. He graduated with a B.A. from the University of South Carolina in 1981 and received his J.D. from U.S.C. in 1984. Upon graduation from law school, Pete served as law clerk to the Honorable Frank Eppes, a state trial court judge. Pete then joined the Fifth Judicial Circuit Solicitors (District Attorney) Office as an Assistant Solicitor. While there, he prosecuted the first heroin trafficking case of over 100 grams and handled over 200 drug cases. After a stint in private practice, where he was a partner in three law firms, Pete was named United States Attorney for the District of South Carolina in 1993. At the time he was appointed by Attorney General Janet Reno, Pete was the youngest U.S. Attorney in the country. As U.S. Attorney, Pete created the Violent Crimes Task Force in South Carolina, which Attorney General Reno referred to as "a national model for the country through a provocative violent crime initiative". Pete also served on Justice Department committees relating to organized crime, white collar crime, sentencing guidelines, and juvenile justice. Pete returned to private practice in 1996, founding the law firm of Strom & Young, L.L.P.
