Excellent lawyer and counselor
Patrick did a splendid job with my divorce. He is extremely professional, level-headed and focused on a fair and expeditious result. His legal fees, compared to those of the lawyer my wife hired, were fair and reasonable. Patrick and I established a plan and he executed that plan flawlessly. Most importantly, he had to deal with an unpredictable and over-billing opposing counsel and he dis so with grace and professionalism
