Thank You!


It has been a wonderful experience devoting forty plus years of my life to serving my clients (including my years as a Trust officer at Lincoln Rochester Trust Company/JP Morgan Chase Bank).  Throughout these years you have honored me with your business, and for that I am humbled and grateful.


Now the time has come for me to open a new chapter in my life to allow me to explore other facets of my life, and most importantly to allow me to focus on my health and spending more time with my family and friends.  So, it is with feelings of both sadness and joy that I must inform you all I am retiring and will transition my practice to Lacy Katzen LLP.


I think you all know that my clients have always been my priority and therefore choosing the right law firm to take over my practice was not an easy task.  I spoke with three local firms, and in my opinion, Lacy Katzen LLP is the best fit for my clients.  Lacy Katzen is a full service law firm that has served Rochester and the surrounding areas since, 1950.


Barbie Ruffell has worked with me for over fourteen years.  During this time she has established a relationship with many, if not the great majority of my clients.  Barbie will continue to provide clients with outstanding service, as a paralegal for Lacy Katzen’s Trusts and Estates group.  I am confident that Lacy Katzen will provide outstanding professional services that will be further enhanced by Barbie’s personal rapport and her knowledge regarding past and ongoing client matters.


Again, it has been my sincere honor to serve you.


All my best,

David C. Pettig
