“Restoring humanity through the practice of law. I hired Patrick to handle a pressing legal case. I’ve worked with a number of attorneys in the past, but few have made the commitment to providing guidance through a case. Most lawyers want to limit their contacts with clients to just the bare minimum while maximizing their billable hours.
"Patrick takes the exact opposite approach. He gave me a crash course in legal proceedings: depositions, pleadings, discovery, etc. His staff kept me up to date on every development in the case. He collaborated with one of the top expert witnesses in the area of my case and negotiated a rate that was unheard of in the industry. He made me feel as if I was a member of the legal team and we were in this together. Most lawyers run a risk calculation around the likelihood of high financial returns and the probability of winning. Patrick approaches things from a pragmatic approach, but he never forgets the human element associated with a case. He clearly explained all the viable options to me and helped me to come to a conclusion that allowed for both a sense of restored justice and financial restitution.
"Most lawyers would have passed on my case because of the effort needed to force the opponent’s hand. Patrick, from a sense of right over wrong, did not abandon my case and encouraged me not to settle for less than what the law and our conscious knew was right based upon the evidence presented. He cares deeply about his clients for the humanity they bring to the practice of law. I’m proud to refer to him as my attorney, but I’m most thankful for the friendship that I’ve gained from our professional and personal time together.
"If you want a dedicated, moral, and ethical lawyer, then Patrick is your guy. If you want another run of the mill lawyer that runs up the clock, then pass him over because he doesn’t do average well.”
