January 16, 2024

Clark Hill announced today that Dabney Pettus has joined the firm as a Member of its Litigation practice and Admiralty and Maritime industry group.

Pettus is based in Corpus Christi and will help increase the firm’s presence in the country’s third-largest port.

“I’m excited to have the opportunity to grow the admiralty and maritime practice in this market,” Pettus said. “Corpus Christi may be known as a small town to most, but it’s very significant to maritime law globally.”

Pettus brings more than 20 years of litigation experience to Clark Hill, where she will also practice in probate and estate planning with colleagues in the firm’s San Antonio office.

Her admiralty and maritime practice involves representation of the International Group of Protection and Indemnity Associations, litigation, casualty investigations onboard vessels, U.S. Coast Guard regulatory matters, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection issues.

“We’re thrilled to have Dabney join our team and bring a wealth of knowledge to our admiralty team in Texas,” said Clark Hill Member David James. “Her presence in Corpus Christi will be a tremendous asset for clients operating in the Gulf of Mexico and beyond.”

Pettus is active in the Maritime Law Association and the Southeastern Admiralty Law Associations. She earned her law degree from the University of Houston Law Center.
