About Me

I take great pride in making sure I place my client's interest before my own. This philosphy includes keeping a low profile. If I am always in the newspaper or on television in an attempt to get "face time" and publicity it means that you are getting publicity. In the area of criminal defense, the less publicity you get, the less damage you will recieve to your reputation. Quiet, effective and discreet representation is my goal. My client's have appreciated this approach and it is my promise to represent you aggressivley, discreetly and effectively.

  • Dawn C. Leemon

    Attorney Petit is that rarest of breeds, an experience and knowledgable criminal defense attorney whose resolute dedication to his clients and passion for the work remain undimmed by time. I was consistently impressed by his courtroom skills and by his understanding of how to navigate the maze that is the criminal justice system. If a friend or family member was dealing with a criminal defense attorney, I would send them to Attorney Petit and strongly recommend that they hire him.
