Review Patricio Lopez

About Me

Attorney Pat Lopez heads the firm’s transactions practice, which encompasses the wide array of legal services frequently called on by our business clients. He has 30 years of experience in counseling and assisting businesses, entrepreneurs, and developers to help them reach their goals, solve their problems, and implement their business plans. Creativity, commitment, caring, knowledge, and enthusiasm best described his passion for the practice of law and his concern for his clients. These characteristics are no doubt some of the reasons for his recognition by his peers as an “AV Preeminent Peer Review Rated” attorney in the Martindale Hubbell Peer Review Ratings Process, as well as his selection by Best Lawyers in America and Southwest Superlawyers.
