  • Joseph J. Ranone

    Pat is an outstanding personal injury attorney. Extremely knowledgeable and competent. While I also practice personal injury, in cases such as medical malpractice, I don't hesitate to refer them to Pat knowing they are in the best of hands. Look at that, an endorsement from the competition! That says volumes!
