Abby Pettit


Abby Pettit is passionate about her role as a counselor and educator, and she believes that the first and most important step in a successful attorney-client relationship is understanding what is most important to her clients and their families. She takes the time to get to know her clients and learn about their lives and businesses, so that they can work together to plan a future that achieves their goals. Abby works with families, closely held businesses and their owners, family farms, independent community banks, and trust companies. 

She advises families with multi-generational wealth on how to achieve their estate planning goals. Her extensive experience in entity law, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, and estates and trusts allow her to find creative solutions to meet her clients’ needs. She also represents personal representatives and trustees during the probate and trust administration process.

In her free time, Abby sings in Calliope Women’s Chorus in St. Paul. She and her husband can often be found in one of Minneapolis’s beautiful parks, chasing their German shepherd and two small kids.
