Petri was raised in Brooklyn, and attended the Eastern District High School and later Bronx’s Hostos Community College. He began his career as a court officer in the Brooklyn Family Court system, and showed such potential that he was transferred to the Manhattan Family Court system in 1986, where he started working with Judge Judith Sheindlin. These, besides creating new opportunities for him in the future, provided the basis for Petri Hawkins-Byrd’s net worth.

Petri decided to continue his education, and enrolled at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice from which he graduated in 1989 with the Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice. He then started serving as a Special Deputy U.S. Marshall in San Mateo in California, and stayed in that position for the next three years.

The breakthrough in Petri’s life and career came in 1996, when, after reading an article about Judy Sheindlin’s new book and the upcoming TV show – Judge Judy, he sent her a letter of congratulations and, jokingly, offered to serve at her side again. Judith accepted, and his television career began. Petri Hawkins-Byrd is the longest running bailiff in the history of the court show, as he has been with the show since the very beginning.
