After a terrible experience with another lawyer who gave me the run-around, and calling numerous legal helplines and referral services, I was lucky enough to find Pat. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, thorough, responsive, and personable. He was not willing to do whatever the client wanted, but instead wanted to have a thorough meeting to discuss my needs in order to determine what would be the best course of action in my situation. I feel like this is the mark of a truly excellent lawyer! He was extremely knowledgable about estate planning, trusts, and housing issues. He also responded to emails almost immediately with precision and thoroughness. I recommend Pat highly!
