Houston, Texas (December 1, 2016) – National trial law firm Edison, McDowell & Hetherington LLP (“EMH”) announced the opening of its South Florida office today. EMH now has offices from coast to coast—in Texas, California and Florida.

David McDowell, EMH’s managing partner, says, “We are thrilled to join forces with Tina and Wendy. We have worked with both for many years and have tremendous respect for them as
lawyers and as people. Our clients requested that we have a physical presence in Florida, and we are excited to address that request with the caliber of lawyers found at Pett Furman.”

“We are responding to client demand. EMH is committed to providing outstanding legal work at competitive rates across the country. With offices in Texas and California, expansion to Florida is the logical next step,” says EMH founding partner Tom Hetherington.
