About Pamela

Learn Pamela’s areas of practice.

Before attending law school, I worked for the Governor of Texas. While there, I managed the 300 million dollar Emerging Technology Fund.


In addition to running my law firm, my husband and I also run our family ranch, which is located in the Brazos Valley. I understand how every decision you make is a business decision and that legal counsel is an important part of that decision.


To this point, I have started two businesses, where I manage company operations and serve as General Counsel. I take pride in and enjoy planning and understanding the various decisions that people make when starting and building a business.


One of the most important things to me is family. To this end, I take the time to help my clients plan to preserve what they have built over their lifetime, and ensure that together we are meeting their goals in estate planning.


I am a member of the Real Estate, Probate and Trust Law Section of the State Bar of Texas, Texas Young Lawyers Association, American Bar Association and the Austin Young Lawyers Association.

Professional, Compassionate & Respectful
The Hailey-Petty Law Firm is a great place to work. I have been a Paralegal for over 35 years, and I have worked in several law firms, from the small - one lawyer firm, to the big downtown firms with 20+ attorneys, and this firm, by far, is the most compassionate and is a firm where the client is the number one priority. As a team, we work closely with each other to provide the most professional service we can for each client. We have many staff meetings to discuss our client's cases, so that each client's case is moving forward. We also have many training sources, so that we can provide the best service for our clients. At the end of the day, it is very rewarding to have bosses like Pam, Jessica and Kay who are very appreciative, respectful, and compassionate with each of their employee's needs - no matter what they may be. Thank you, Pam, for showing me appreciation, respect, and compassion, and thank you for being a great leader! I truly love my job and this firm.

Great experience
Contacted and hired Mrs. Petty for a will and estate planning. She and everyone in the office was professional, friendly and made my experience comfortable. She was patient and provided great information on options. I learned a great deal through the process and will certainly use their services again and refer to friends and family.

Will for a blended family
Thank you all for your patience and attention to detail when creating a will for both my husband and myself. We had no idea what all went in to creating a sound and complete will for a blended family. You were very through and happy to answer all our questions!

excellent job
Her work is excellent comparing to other lawyers I had encountered. She did extra work beyond what is minimally required by the fee. I went back to her twice for my will documents and everyone is impressed with binder she created for me. Thumbs up.
Response from Pamela Hailey-Petty April 11, 2019
Thanks for your kind words, Pei. We look forward to seeing you again should you need legal assistance in the future.

Pam is amazing!
Me and my partner, Molly, used Pam for our estate planning and assistance when purchasing a home together. We both knew there were areas where we would not be protected as a couple, and it gave us peace of mind to do our estate planning with her. It was important to both of us for our partner to have protection in case something happened to the other. I highly recommend using Pam for your estate planning.
