With Patrick Roberts’ help our son was given the best possible outcome – a dismissal of all charges.
His planning and communication skills ensured that our family and our out of state co-counsel
were all clear on his expert vision and guidance.
Bottom line is this: having Patrick Roberts on our side gave us great comfort during a long, tumultuous
ordeal. We would never hesitate to call on him again if needed.

First off, I was in the same place you probably were, right now. Browsing for an attorney because things I was being questioned by authorities on a case involving a sex crime, which potentially would have had me registering in a sex offender database!!
Like you, I noticed all of the glowing reviews and was skeptical. Like you, I was unsure what to do, and who to trust.
I went in to the Raleigh office, and after talking with Mr. Roberts I knew I was in the right place. Not to mention another attorney in the office told me, once Mr Roberts left the room, that the ONLY reason he was there was to learn from Mr. Roberts. Hell, the polygraph expert told me himself that if he were ever in any hot water, this is the place he'd go.
Long story, short, Mr Roberts got the case dismissed. He's not the cheapest option, but you are playing with your life. Figure out and do anything you can to get the money, because it could save you years of heartache/jail time etc.
Do NOT wait until you are being formally charged, if you think there's even a chance, go see this guy and at least here what he has to say. The staff responded very very quickly, kept me informed and no one was blowing any smoke up my ass about results. But he did make me aware of his track record, and in the end, he was right. Case dismissed.

With the sensitive nature of my case, every step of this process was frightening. Patrick and the wonderful people he works with were kind, caring, and nonjudgmental. He made his role very clear to me from the beginning and promised to do everything he could to help clear my name. And he did!
They answered every question I had to the best of their ability. Patrick connected me directly with the people and services outside of his office to help me get my life back. I can honestly say I am better off now than I ever was before. If you are feeling as lost and confused as I was, do not look any further. Patrick Roberts is the man you need to represent you. His experience and knowledge of the legal system gave me a second chance in life. If you are reading this, you have found the right attorney.

Attorney Roberts traveled out of state to assist with our case. From the beginning Attorney Roberts explained the gravity of the case and the possible outcomes. His work was thorough, extremely professional and of the highest high caliber. We placed our complete trust in his representation. With the final sentencing, even with a mandatory minimum, Attorney Roberts was able to secure a substantially reduced sentence. We are immensely pleased with Attorney Roberts and his work.

I was charged with 3 counts of 1st degree Burglary 2 years ago that began the scariest time of my life. I was in jail with no end in sight with a 1 million dollar bail set for crimes I did not commit. Searching franticly for a lawyer, my wife came across Mr. Roberts who's office was very knowledgeable in answering our questions since this was our first experience with the criminal legal system. We worked out a payment plan for the legal expenses which was a blessing since we initially did not have the whole amount up front. With the price Mr. Roberts charged us I feel like I underpaid for what he has done for me and my family. The 1st step was to lower bail so that I could get out of jail. Needless to say after a great argument Bail was lowered from "1 million dollars to $50,000" with house arrest where I had to wear an ankle monitor. Within 3 days I was home with my family. Now we were on the road to proving my innocence which wouldn't be easy since the police has 2 different people from 2 separate break ins pick me out of a 6 person photo line up. In total I was charged with breaking into 3 different apartments in the middle of the night while people were sleeping. This trumped very serious charges that if convicted I would be facing 30 years in prison. During the whole process Mr. Roberts and his office staff stayed in touch with me meeting 2 times per month on Saturday's to keep in the loop with new information. Whenever I had a court appearance the office was great on making sure I was aware and prepared me for what to expect so I never missed a date. Some court dates Mr. Roberts did have other attorneys in his practice appear but it was usually for continuances or paperwork related issues and I was always told ahead of time who was coming in place of Mr. Roberts. I spent approximately 9 months on house arrest and after 2 appearances to remove we finally got a fair judge who could see I had no violations and no criminal record so it was removed. Mr. Roberts was very thorough in his argument to remove the house arrest that the judge granted it even before the DA had a chance to speak. It was great to watch the DA left speechless! After another year of hounding the DA office to proceed with the case to trial or drop the charges that's what brings us to this glorious day that I write this review. ALL CHARGES DISMISSED!!!!!!!!!! We were able to provide the DA's office with cell phone records that when pulled from cell towers showed that at the time of 2 of the 3 break ins I was home texting and face booking based off of the GPS coordinates from my phone. Crazy right! Mr. Roberts proved my innocence that I was home all night after 12 hour shift in the Prison, yes I was a correction officer before all of this. SO this case never went to trial, ALL CHARGES WERE DISMISSED and now I have my life back. I would recommend anyone facing serious charges to go to him. He is fair, firm, and direct and not afraid to go to trial if need be to fight for you. Thank you Patrick for giving me my life back and to anyone reading this who is scared and wondering where to turn, pick up the phone and give him a call. You will be thankful you did!

In a very difficult time, Mr. Roberts was a blessing. Straight forward and honest, but keeping me informed about the legal issue, a very confusing thing for any layman. Highly Recommend, you will not do better anywhere else.

January 2013 our son was charged with a very serious crime that would have resulted in a Life sentence. We were in desperate need of the best legal representation at that time. I googled for the best Defense Attorney in North Carolina and came across Attorney Patrick Roberts. I proceeded to view his website and read his reviews from previous clients. We met with Mr. Roberts to discuss our son's charge and immediately hired him. One of the best decisions I've ever made! Mr. Roberts is very professional, knowledgeable, confident and passionate in his Law practice and FEARLESS in the courtroom. He was always prompt with meetings, phone calls and always straight forward with the good and bad. Nineteen months later, our son's case went to a jury trial and resulted in an Acquittal due to Mr. Roberts OUTSTANDING representation in the courtroom! We would highly refer Attorney Roberts to anyone seeking legal representation. Roberts Law Group has the best Attorneys and Staff in North Carolina!! Thanks Attorney Roberts..... You're the best!

Having never hired a lawyer before, I was very selective and also very apprehensive about the entire situation, which was scary and overwhelming at first. My concern was that all attorneys cared more about making fast money than their client and their client's well-being. While winning is what everyone wants, it's a process getting there. One which takes time and patience, and a good lawyer first and foremost. I had called multiple practices, and at the end of the day, I followed my instincts and scheduled an appointment with Roberts Law Firm. To this day I consider this one of the best decisions I have ever made. I was completely flummoxed yet pleasantly surprised at how at ease I was with this firm, and how comfortable they made me feel when disclosing my recent disconcerting information. Here I was a first time (falsely accused) offender, scared out of my mind, with no hope in sight; but when I left the firm after our first meeting, I felt calm and composed, like I had (quite literally) put my life in the fate of someone whom had known me forever and had only my best interests at heart. And believe it or not, this contentment lasted throughout the entire course of my legal duration. Mr. Roberts is honestly one of the hardest working individuals I've ever come across. All of the Saturday meetings and phone calls; his accessibility and straightforwardness; and the kind, professional manner he kept consistently without fail, meant the world to me, really. I needed a hero, and he filled that role effortlessly. However, not only did Mr. Roberts exceed my expectations, but so did his staff. Sabina especially was absolutely delightful every time I saw her or spoke with her on the phone. I was under the impression that she really wanted to make this whole procedure as painless as possible for me. I am forever grateful for that. I had the pleasure of speaking with and meeting a few other employees at Roberts Law Firm as well, and they were nothing but nice. I highly recommend Roberts Law Firm for anyone in need of an attorney of this nature. This firm is set to such high standards that I cannot imagine another firm even coming close to the caliber of this one. I am so thankful and pleased I hired Mr. Roberts and that my case was eventually dismissed. I cannot say for certain that this feat would have been achieved had I hired a different lawyer, which is why I felt the need to share my experience and essentially provide a formal thank you!!!!

Law enforcement showed up at our house with a warrant to search the entire premises. They were after my teenage son. They knew every aspect of our life, right down to my wife's health condition. It was horrifying. No arrests were made, but the next 48 hours we did not know what to expect. We stayed close to each other as much as possible, not knowing what was going to happen next. We felt hopeless and felt that in a few days our son would be in prison. I scoured the internet looking for somebody to help. I found Patrick Roberts and noticed he specialized in crimes that my son was accused of. I called his office and he told us to come in right away. Because Mr. Roberts worked as a prosecutor and a criminal defense lawyer in NC, he understands how the investigation process works. He was able to negotiate the best possible outcome for my son. If it were not for the experience and care that Mr. Roberts, my son would not have a future.
