I have known Jill Petty professionally for many years. We have worked on a few cases together and I often seek her advise on legal issues. She is also on of the few lawyers that are licensed to practice in both Washington and Oregon. I often refer Washington cases to her because of her skill, tenacity and professionalism. Jill is a great lawyer.
