About Lenhart Pettit

In January 2014, two successful central Virginia firms, Feil, Pettit & Williams, PLC and Lenhart Obenshain PC, combined to form Lenhart Pettit. The merger of sophisticated business and litigation practices in Charlottesville and Harrisonburg enables the attorneys of Lenhart Pettit to bring even greater resources to complex representations.
