National trial law firm McDowell Hetherington LLP (“MH”) announced the opening of its South Florida office today. MH now has offices from coast to coast—in Texas, California and Florida.

Kristina “Tina” B. Pett and Wendy L. Furman, formerly of Pett Furman, PL in Boca Raton, are joining the firm as partners to launch the Florida office.

David McDowell, MH’s managing partner, says, “We are thrilled to join forces with Tina and Wendy. We have worked with both for many years and have tremendous respect for them as lawyers and as people. Our clients requested that we have a physical presence in Florida, and we are excited to address that request with the caliber of lawyers found at Pett Furman.”

“We are responding to client demand. MH is committed to providing outstanding legal work at competitive rates across the country. With offices in Texas and California, expansion to Florida is the logical next step,” says MH founding partner Tom Hetherington.

MH is a 43-lawyer trial firm that has handled complex commercial litigation in almost every state since the firm was founded in 2009.

Tina Pett and Wendy Furman, who have extensive experience in commercial and financial services litigation, say they are pleased to join a firm with a national reach.

“We now have a nationwide presence and MH’s footprint will allow us to further serve our clients,” says Tina Pett.

Wendy Furman agrees, “Our clients know MH and are pleased that we now have a platform that spans the country.”

The MH Florida office is located at 2101 N.W. Corporate Boulevard, Suite 316, Boca Raton, FL 33431.
