    Response to Post by Michelle, July 23

    This person's dissatisfaction is regrettable, however this is not someone I have ever represented. This reviewer is apparently mistaken in attributing this experience to me and our firm, as I have never represented such a person.

    He said and he delivered!!!!

    I am currently being represented in a complicated case for child support by patrick and he recently represented me in a child custody case. All i have to say about him is what he says he delivers! He is very friendly and understanding of situations! I would recommend him anyday!

    Excellent overall

    Mr. McGraw has worked with me with one successful case already and is in the process to hear my next case. He is knowledgeable and compassionate when it comes to family situations and wanting what is best for the child. He has made me feel the least amount of stress in such a hectic time with a child support and custody battle. Knowing he is taking care and on my side has been a weight off my shoulders. I definitely highly recommend this lawyer for anyone in the Roanoke area.

    Terrific Lawyer, Great Outcome!!!!!!

    I hired Mr. McGraw for what started out as a divorce with custody, and the typical support and family and property issues. From there the case evolved into multiple different protective orders, domestic abuse allegations (that were false), and seemingly endless other issues. Mr. McGraw was always there at the other end of the phone, was always willing to set up face to face meetings with me whenever we needed, and he always explained things fully and fairly to me, which often times meant saying things that I did not want to hear, but they needed to be said. When we went to court he was extremely prepared, organized, and was extremely aggressive. The other lawyer would always try to interrupt, talk over him and contradict him, and he always very calmly but very firmly and persistently would present our side to go opposite of what the other attorney was trying to say, and the outcome of every single part of each one of these cases was even better than I expected.

    No other alternative than submitting this review

    Very dissatisfied due to not following through with submitting paperwork and has caused my divorce to still not be completed. Does not return phone calls and requests for contact. I expedited my paperwork and found out the first filing sat on Mr. Mcgraw's desk for 6 weeks after being told repeatedly the paperwork was submitted weeks prior. Now I am still waiting for him to send completed paperwork.

    Patrick Michael McGraw’s response: “While we regret this client's frustration, the case nevertheless was completed on terms very favorable to this client. The client did not understand some of the legal requirements that resulted in the paperwork needing to be changed, and therefore delayed. There was no neglect of the matter. And we proudly stand by the ultimate result obtained in the case.”

    Take Heed and steer clear of this attorney, If your hard earned dollar holds any value at all!

    I also had Mr McGraw for child custody yes he does put on a wonderful sale pitch that you buy into, however when he offers 5000.00 flat fee no matter how many times he has to represent you in court how many 3rd party calls he has to make, so when time to file a show cause he charged an additional 1500.00 only to withdraw in the courts, he was a no show on one of our appointments we drove in for, he doesn't return phone calls or emails I requested numerous times copy of agreement when I retained him, Also late filing after 180 day review and then filed with the Incorrect childs last name and then lied and stated the one with the incorrect last name never made it to the courts only to receive in the mail the order with the incorrect childs last name and where the judge signed off on the order and stamped by the courts. Not to mention not very organized and cannot keep track of instances and situations you spoke with him in deepest regards related to the child, then gets irate and irritated when you call him inquiring on information, was never notified when filing a show cause the opposing party also had and was never notified until I showed up in the courtroom, Everything he tells you he thinks he can get out of them on the stand nothing is ever put fort and then when you question him why he didn't bring them to the stand he states "he didn't have any new information" Now I had sent my last email in November never have received a call or email in Return Kinda makes you think of Steve Miller Band"Take the Money and Run" Not to mention he had taken pictures also with his phone I reckon to impress us, however none of that was put before the courts. Let me elaborate on his motto "We help real Families created more Real Problems

    Patrick Michael McGraw’s response: “I regret this client's frustration, but it comes from our having obtained a very favorable outcome for the client in our initial representation; unfortunately other matters later developed after the original case had been entirely concluded and resolved and closed, which the client had a hard time understanding constituted new cases, requiring new work, and yes, new fees for the additional work. We proudly stand by the initial favorable outcome obtained for this client.”

    DSS Custody

    I hired this lawyer for his experitise with DSS and fighting them and for custody. He is very knowledgeable and has been responsive to my inquiries. He is a good listener and he has a legal acumen with strategy. He makes strategy decisions on his own without asking for his clients approval. As hard as it is to take, so far, he has made the right decisions. He is handling a very complicated and extreme custoday case for us and we have been very satifisifed with his legal knowledge and astute ability to perform in court.

    FEELING COMPLETE!!1

    Good lawyers do cost good money!! I paid quite a bit but feel that it was well worth the amount that I paid. He has always followed up with me and even used his personal cell when out of the office.I got better results than what was expected. One thing you must remember. Sometimes it is not the lawyer but it is the client!! If they are not doing their part than they can only be represented as well is able. My ex paid a large amount for his attorney but when you are acting out of what is good for self and not the child the judge can see this. Pat cannot mold his clients into what the judge would want. Bad reviews for this man mean bad clients that are doing things that cannot be represented!!!
