About Me

I have been practicing law in the North Country since 1975. The majority of my work involves real estate. I represent sellers and buyers and some out of town lenders to accomodate my buyers. Since I have a number of landlords as clients I have recently added landlord tenant work to the mix. We do evictions. For articles on what it costs to buy or sell real estate, look at the real estate button on my website


I regularly do estate planning which includes wills, powers of attorney, health care proxies, and living trusts. That leads of course to my probate practice where I appear in our local Surrogate Court. I have a large amount of information about trust planning on my website. click on the estateplanning button.


As for myself, I have served in the community as one of the founding members of the Fort Drum Steering Council. I currently serve on the boards of the Watertown Urban Mission, my church, St Patricks, and my barbershop chorus. You can see more about my activities and my family on my website.


I am a member of the state bar association, of course, and I am a member of the real estate, trust and estates and elder law sections of the bar. My assistant Carmen Disario who is fluent in German and I look forward to serving your legal needs quickly and for a reasonable fee.


Sincerely yours,

Pat Evans

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I have known Pat professionally and personally for nearly 30 years. His practice is concentrated in areas of the law that interest him and in which he has developed expertise. For a number of years we practiced together in the same law firm during which time I found him to be both knowledgeable and committed to the interest of his clients. Pat's integrity is unquestioned and he enjoys a very good reputation in the local legal community. I would not hesitate to ask Pat to handle a matter for me personally.
