  • Daniel James Sabol

    Patrick has an unrivaled passion for protecting the Constitution and defending his clients. I consider myself fortunate to see him on a regular basis at seminars around the country; every conversation I have with him I learn something new. His skill in litigating cases has earned him a national reputation as a premier criminal defense attorney, and a prosecutor will never outwork him on a case. I trust him—you can too.
