Local Counsel 

The primary benefits of partnering with our firm are our experience, skill, contacts, and knowledge of Texas rules, statutes, procedures, and practices.

Our law firm founder, Julie Pettit, is a Dallas county native who was born and raised here, and attended Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law, where she began cultivating relationships with local legal professionals who helped shape her career.

The Pettit Law Firm has served as local litigation counsel in the DFW metroplex for out-of-state companies, individuals, and law firms who need representation in the Dallas area. We can provide insight into knowledge of local court rules and customs, familiarity with the courthouse staff, and a strong reputation with the local bench and bar. Our attorneys are flexible and capable of handling as much or as little of the litigation as the client requires, whether providing meaningful information about the Court, opposing counsel, and/or the parties, or actually handling the nuts-and-bolts of the lawsuit. We are familiar with handling the types of issues that regularly arise when an out-of-state party is sued in Texas, including removal and remand of actions in federal court, jurisdictional issues, special appearances, service of process, motions to dismiss and transfer, venue issues, and pro hac vice matters.
