    • I do not recommend David Patterson.
    • I hired David 1-3 years ago.
    • David handled my Child Custody matter.

    This lawyer not only sent me an invoice with dates that made no sense(because he wasn't hired then) but he also sent court papers to the wrong address and embarrassed me during a court hearing. Lied on the complaint papers and was very unorganized, I felt like I did all the work and was over charged. I called and asked to see his partner which never happend. His staff was very unprofessional weren't able to answer Any questions and were rude. We settled on an amount for the case a month later I get a bill for triple the amount.

    I am done with this attorney, he does not use the computer, he does NOT e mail, he does not text...he does not prepare in advance for the hearings, but he DOES fall asleep and DOES care all about his horses...

    • I do not recommend David Patterson.

    • David handled my Child Custody matter.

    So we went in and basically handed him a slam dunk case we had pretty much won! He hardly contacted us, missed a court date, and couldn't remember our case when he got in the room! He failed to present evidence and had no knowledge of any of the stacks of information we gave him. He was falling asleep and slurring his speech after court! All he cares about is money and his horses

  4. Falls asleep during appointments

    • I do not recommend David Patterson.
    • I hired David more than 3 years ago.
    • David handled my Lawsuits / Disputes matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    He's a nice guy when he's awake. He is very unorganized. He failed to file paperwork in my case in proper time and so be it I ended up losing because of it. He overcharges while you do your own legwork.
