What Our Customers Say:
Patrick defies the expectations of a lawyer. He is ethical, kind and very personable. I couldn’t imagine working with anyone else. Patrick always gave me his honest opinion of my case, even if it wasn’t exactly what I wanted to hear. While my case was a smaller case, I always felt like Patrick handled it like it was the only case he had on his desk. I would choose Patrick again in a heart beat for any of my legal needs.”-- Stephanie B.
