  • Joshua D. Uller

    Pat Cafferty is an outstanding lawyer and has been a mentor to me and numerous other young lawyers. His work on difficult high profile cases is impressive, but so is his work on the countless cases that don't get any media attention. Whether he is in state or federal court, Pat Cafferty is the quintessential advocate.
