Patrick worked hard to help and get me what I fairly deserved out of my Divorce. He is extremely honest and intelligent, knows the law and is a respectful listener. During a Divorce when it seems like your world is spinning out of control, I was so lucky to have Patrick by my side. He is a strong advocate for children going through this very difficult time. He did his job very well and was always calm, cool and collected. He is the best for a reason. Thank you Mr. McCroskey for getting me to the other side of Divorce.
I was engaged in a very difficult divorce process and if it had not been for Patrick McrCroskey I might have lost my determination to resolve it in the spirit of Grace. While I could not control how my former spouse approached the process ( in anger and denial of his own responsibility) I knew and Mr. McCroskey reminded me, I was responsible for how I approached it. Together, we stood firm when push came to shove and finally something shifted and an amicable agreement was reached in the best interests of the entire family. Mr. McCroskey listened to my desires and helped me understand my needs in the process. He is truly a "Counselor" at Law. I am forever thankful.
In my opinion, Patrick McCroskey is very quick to quit on clients after already being paid. I have heard of 4 others who he has quit on after great time and expense was spent in custody and divorce cases. I wonder how many clients in total that he has quit on and assume it is many more. After quitting on me once and realizing he was in violation of the NC Bar Rules of Professional Conduct - Rule 1.16 Declining or Terminating Representation, he agreed to un-withdraw and several month later, he quit again, two months before my custody case was to be tried in court and after spending appx. $7000 on his services. I have gone over two months waiting for a return phone call last autumn.
