  • Lori Doganiero Palmieri

    Although I have known Pat Doherty for 20 years and have prosecuted cases against him in the past, I just had an opportunity to represent co-defendants together with him in federal court in the last year. We were both court-appointed on a very sad case of parents distributing prescription drugs to their son who died from an overdose. Working with Pat was an extraordinary experience for me. The depth and breath of his vast criminal defense experience was invaluable in getting through such a disturbing case. I only wish that I had the opportunity to try a case with the "master of cross examination." Pat is a true gentleman and a great lawyer. I am proud to call him my friend.
