    • I recommend Patrick McDonough.
    • I hired Patrick 1-3 years ago.
    • Patrick handled my Criminal Defense matter.

    Pat McDonough is an expert in criminal law with outstanding relationships within the criminal justice community in Gwinnett County and the Atlanta area in general.

    Pat has helped my family and friends on many occasions and I have referred people to him numerous times. I think his experience as a District Attorney and Prosecutor before becoming a Criminal Defense Attorney is instrumental in helping his clients.

    • I do not recommend Patrick McDonough.
    • I hired Patrick more than 3 years ago.
    • Patrick handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    When you are dealing with a stressful situation such as needing criminal defense, you expect a certain level of experience, respect, and decency. Sadly, we were very disappointed on all levels when dealing with this attorney. We even experienced a situation where he was swearing on the phone. Overall, very unprofessional. Needless to say, we fired him.
