ATTORNEYS

Gregory A. Petit

Most attorneys know the law. I feel what sets our firm apart is that our attorneys take their knowledge of the law, listen to the client’s needs and develop a plan that allows the client a successful outcome. By listening to our clients and trying to develop an approach personal to the client, we develop a successful partnership that leads to quality results.
