  • Micah Shawn Belden

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Patrick is a trial lawyer in every sense of the word. He works tirelessly not only at his cases but overtime in being a better lawyer. He goes the extra mile to work the Trial Lawyers College methodology which has proven highly successful all around the nation, and we are fortunate to have him winning in Rockwall and Dallas.
