About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

I understand people.  I have worked hard to gain broad experience in all areas of civil litigation, labor & employment, regulatory compliance, conflict resolution and alternative dispute resolution.  The softskill insight necessary to connect with all types of people toward a mutually beneficial solution has been my passion for most of my legal career, and all of my life.  I "specialize" in the most challenging issues: difficult personnel & management, elder & family care mediation (having the "family talk" during transition times, church conflict, personal and business communication challenges, etc.  I have developed the capacity to navigate difficult circumstances and crises with poise and resolve.

We consulted with Mr. Pettit following a car accident that resulted in a fatality. He worked with us to deal with the insurance company to obtain the maximum settlement that we were entitled to.

Legal Advice and Representation: Invaluable
It has been a blessing and honor to be the recipient of Mr. Richard Pettit's abilities as a lawyer. He has stepped up to help me when no one else would. His legal advice and guidance has been invaluable. Mr. Pettit helped me in attaining a public attorney in a juvenile case with myself and son. He came to my assistance in fighting a criminal case that is ongoing. Mr. Pettit has been able to guide me in the legal system in fighting for myself. He has also given me his personal time and legal advice. For this I am very appreciative.

Power of attorney
Mr. Pettit perfomed a power of attorney transaction for us which involved researching out of state legalities. He was very prompt and completely professional, even though our request was not a "major case." He treated us with the utmost courtesy and did a terrific job at a reasonable fee. We found him to be very conscientious and detail oriented, as a good lawyer should be. We will be consulting him again with all our legal needs.

Trustworthy counsel - a rarity in today's legal world
I've used Mr. Pettits numerous times over the last ten years for counsel. Mainly legal advise and review of documents. I have always believed that seeking sound counsel from a trusted advisor is wise before any important decision making. I have found Mr. Pettit to be thoughtful, prudent , and trust worthy. I can honestly say that I have never been disappointed with his counsel and advice. I would strongly recommend Mr. Pettit to anyone for any legal matter that he deals with. He simply a man you can trust!

Great Attorney!!! Helped us many times , honest and fair.
We have consulted with Richard many times over the years. He has always provided honest and fair advice. We hired Richard to handle a fraud case by an auto dealer. They changed the amount on my parents trade in by 8,000.00 Richard met with them once , and had the entire mess turned around, money refunded and situation solved. He is worth every penny. He is the only attorney I would trust for my family and business matters .

Successful mediation and dispute resolution.
For 3 years we had tried to resolve a dispute with a another organization with which we worked. We were unsuccessful and as time went by, the relationship became more and more strained. Attorney Richard Pettit used his mediation skills to successfully help both parties arrive at a solution. Not only were the misunderstandings that lay at the root of the problem resolved, but he helped us understand the necessary steps to re-establish our relationship and continue in harmony. It has been six months since that event and we are indeed seeing the effects of Mr. Pettit's wise counsel. The relationship is restored and we are working together. Honestly, I never thought we'd be where we are and are eternally grateful for the wise counsel and guidance during the several days spent in the process.

Mr Pettit soved my issue quickly !
He took put an end to daily, harassing phone calls from unfair, old medical bills. He was very courteous and professional even though I had a small case.
