Evans Petree

Evans Petree is a full service law firm where we treat challenges in a comprehensive manner particular to each client seeking our counsel. To us, success is achieved by evaluating client goals, then vetting solutions amongst our diverse in-house experts, whose ultimate success is intertwined with that of the client.

When Evans Petree began in 1907, we didn’t have a 100-year plan in mind— only a desire to apply our knowledge to solve problems and grow alongside our clients. That desire guided us into the next century and continues to propel us today.

While the breadth of our experience is quantifiable in both years and areas of practice, it is the depth of our experience that makes us more than law. We are not just attorneys, advocates, and advisors. We are planners and allies. We are community members and entrepreneurs. We believe the work we share with our clients today will ultimately elevate the greater community tomorrow.

While our professionals possess numerous and diverse capabilities, such as commercial and employment law, tax planning, real property and health care, the common thread through all of our dealings and relationships is a foundation of high values, coupled with a dedication to enhancing client perspectives. These are the factors that perpetuate client success. We work every day to redefine the scope of what is possible within a full-service law firm.
