    I endorse this lawyer's work. I refer many matters to Attorney Begos. In addition to being an extremely competent litigator, he is able to work with his clients to get the best possible result in the most cost-effective manner. He can play hardball when the situation warrants it, but will work to settle disputes where an early resolution is in the client's best interests.

  • David J. Abeshouse

    Patrick Begos is a highly intelligent, experienced, creative, and rational attorney, a combination that renders him unique among his counterparts. Were I to have a business litigation or similar matter that required attention in Connecticut, he is the first lawyer whom I would consult. As he also practices in New York, where my practice is based, if I were to have a conflict of interest so that I could not represent a client in a case, I would have absolutely no hesitation in referring such a client to Patrick, as I know that client would be in the best possible hands.
