I hired Mr. Patrick to help in a parenting plan with an ex who liked to play things his way and was controlling myself and my child. Mr. Patrick helped me with the situation smoothly and he helped inform me of anything that I ever asked him. He was patient, especially when my ex would deliberately press his buttons. He went above and beyond what I expected he would do.

Mr. Patrick handled my personal injury case. I was very impressed with his abilities and communication. He was able to get me an award for my injuries that far exceeded what other attorneys said my case was worth. If I ever need an attorney again, for anything, I will contact Mr. Patrick first.

My fiance and I hired Mr. Richard Patrick to handle some estate planning for us. Mr. Richard Patrick is professional, informative, polite...everything you would expect. But he is also an incredibly personable individual who has really helped us understand the ins and outs of what we are trying to accomplish with the estate planning. We have such a better knowledge base and feel so much more confident moving forward with the decisions that we have made and that has come from our lawyer going above and beyond what was asked of him.
I highly, highly recommend Mr. Richard Patrick. his legal advice is sound. His advice is not cookie cutter, it is personal and specific. I felt like we really were treated in the best possible way. Instead of feeling daunted and overwhelmed, we feel very fortunate to instead be informed, confident and cared for.

Having to hire a lawyer is never something we look forward to doing. The long, enduring, frustrating process that I had to go through was all made better with Richard by my side. He's one of the most knowledgeable men I have come to know, and he not only understands the law, but he understands you as a person. His honesty, respect, and intellect cannot be measured. Richard was able to put my mind at ease, and I could rest at night knowing that I had this man making all the right decisions that were in my best interest. We settled my case with far better results than I could have ever expected. If you're in need of a lawyer, Richard is the man. He's absolutely fantastic!

Richard is excellent. Studied in the law but also the ways of the human heart. Richard bridges the gap between legal technocrat and practitioner seamlessly. Firm yet correct. His keen knowledge of the law gives power to his ability to manage tough negotiations and provide value to his clients. I have been very happy with Richard's creative solutions that bring everyone to a much better place. Definitely a value add.

Mr. Patrick has done a great job representing me in the personal matter with which I have been confronting over the past couple of years. He treated me with the utmost dignity and respect. He knows what he is doing and, most importantly, he is a great advocate for his clients. It is obvious to me that his goal is to help his clients succeed and get to a better place in life. He continues to help me and my family with sound legal advice toward debt settlement. I recommend him to you with high regard and no reservation.

Richard Patrick handled a divorce for my father, over 2 years ago. He did an excellent job. Very caring as to my father's situation, very thorough, and detailed.

Richard Patrick served as our entertainment lawyer during the production of a short film I produced. Richard was as effective as he was fun, and always kept us informed of procedings. We were incredibly pleased to have the opportunity to work with him, and we intend to pursue his services in the future.

After multiple referrals from legal resources as well as from other parents in similar custody scenarios as myself, I hired Mr Patrick's firm to represent me in a difficult split custody situation. Four years later he has proven to represent me and my daughter superbly.
With the in's and out's of a complex legal system, extensive paperwork, and legal language that is often confusing, Mr. Patrick and his associates have helped me navigate through my legal rights as a non-custodial father.
Two trips to court, many filed legal documents, and regularly challenging scenarios for me to spend my allotted time and resources with my daughter, Mr Patrick has represented me to the fullest. In fact, he has won more than I asked for in both court visits. My daughter's mother continues to interpret the law on her own, without her own attorney, making Mr. Patrick's job even more drawn out and difficult. However, he continues to both encourage my patience as well as educate me on building a case for me to hopefully someday have more time with my daughter.
Obviously experienced, mild mannered, patient, caring and extremely smart, he has a clear path for my legal future as a father, and has allowed me the flexibility to pay significant legal bills on a very fair structure. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Patrick and his staff. Not just for me, but also with his successes representing others, his track record speaks for itself.

I was in an abusive marriage and Mr. Patrick helped me and my children through domestic violence issues, child custody, child support, divorce and recently a step-parent adoption. Not only was Mr. Patrick exceedingly professional and proficient in regard to his work he handled each and every aspect of our cases and issues with integrity, sensitivity and fought long and hard to get the right outcomes. I feel as if my family and I have not only been clients but friends who personally matter to Mr. Patrick.
