  • Dan M. Hartzog

    Pat Flanagan is one of those go-to lawyers who can handle the most difficult cases of all types. I am very familiar with his work for municipalities and in the employment arena. He has a lot of confidence and always knows what needs to be done. He instills confidence in his clients and gets great results for them. He is just a great lawyer.
