I have been with Patrick Palace for about 4 years. I went to see him when LNI decided to start fighting me on every issue and threatened to cut me off. Kristi worked hard fighting for my rights. I have now been pensioned and it has been thanks to Patrick Palace and Kristi. I can not thank them enough for all they have done. I Will use them again if I ever need a lawyer.
In 2012 I was injured at work. I was tossed into a system I didn't understand, though quite clearly, it wasn't about helping me. I went through periods of no pay, uncertainty of my future. I heard a radio ad and called Palace Law. Today I have a big kid on the block backing me. So when L&i decides I should not recieve, 75% of my benefits, I don't have to worry very long. Someone explains what happened and why. That's so important to me, just a simple reason, because it doesn't make any sense. They fix it and it's not always convienant. But my paralegal there Kristy, just knowing that someone will take care of everything is the best bargain in America, when I consider the very small percentage I pay from my checks. They have helped me find the right doctor, the have helped me at every single important interview, IME, so I could do my job, which is to move on and heal. Today I'm a student again. I won't be able to do my job of injury. If I didn't have Pat Palace there is 100% no doubt in my mind that I would not be where I am. Retraining even. Without Palace Law I really think I wouldnt have made it. You need a lawyer in this system if you are not able to return to work. I gave him 4 stars on responsive because they are super busy. They help everyone and sometimes they can't get right back to me. But that's ok. Because I know I won't get some canned bs response. I'll get the straight up answer I need. So I put 4 there but everything else, should be 6stars. There's many other perks and awesome things I could say. You just have to learn for yourself and give call them.
I hired Palace Law to handle my over 7 case. After 2 years without so much as meeting with Patrick or any other attorney in the practice, even though it was repeatedly requested and even told I would, I decided to fire them. My paralegal was great and worked hard, but in a phone conversation I was finally granted with Patrick he all but told me that if he had known that my case was an over 7 he would have never taken it. He wouldn't go to trial with me because he worked hard to establish a relationship with L&I and didn't want to jeopardize it. In short I took this to mean that he put his needs ahead of mine, and if he could take 30% of my settlement without having to work at it he would represent me... Remind you, this was 2 years after hiring this practice..... I think Patrick should spend more time practicing law and less time trying to be the "cool". Pain in the Grass??? More like pain in the ass.... I also believe there to have been a conflict of interest on his part as I have learned that he was being considered for Director of L&I. L&I lawyers are just like the IME physicians... They're all part of the system.
I am handling a worker's compensation claim for my hard-working mother. The process has been difficult to understand and navigate. I called a few law offices to ask about representation so we could get assistance. Patrick's law office, specifically, Lynette was incredibly caring, informative, and attentive. I am so grateful! You can tell the passion lies in helping their clients.
I owe so much to Palace Law. They have stood by me through thick and thin for several years now in my dealings with L & I. I first contacted them when L& I closed out my case prematurely, saying that I was ok to return to work, and could get a job as a Office Clerk, even though I had no such experience, and had been working in managerial jobs, supervising employees, managing installation teams, etc.. Patrick Palace spoke with me, was very understanding and empathetic. He agreed to represent me and got his team going. Even though it took some time, he got my benefits reinstated with back pay.
Most recently, Thaddeus Sikes has been working with me on yet another issue with L & I. He has done a brilliant job representing me, and won that segment of my case for me! It is so reassuring to know that I have them on my side, as my case continues on.
I shudder to think what would have happened to me without them. They are all about helping the people. Money is not the object for them, which is so appreciated under the circumstances. When you can't work and still require medical treatment, there is no money to spare. I am so happy to know that Thaddeus is watching and dealing with every aspect of my case at this time. The entire staff at Palace Law are wonderful. I owe them my undying debt of gratitude.
We have been with Palace Law since September 2012 they have been amazing. They are always been for us with any questions and concerns we have. They go above and beyond with extra things to make sure we are taken care of in anyway they can.
Palace law has been amazing in helping me resolve my case and the paralegal team esp. lynette young has been very informative and quick in getting my needs met
I tried to take on L&I by myself and finally, after two months of no action by them, hired Palace Law and one week later received a check.
Patrick Palace and his Para Legal staff is the best I have ever come into contact with. Lynette, my Paralegal always keeps me informed of what is happening and is always there to answer any questions that I have. With what I am going through right now it is wonderful to be able to fully trust that Patrick and his staff is there for me and leading me in the right direction. I will use definitely use Patrick and his staff if I ever need a lawyer again after this.
My experience was excellent with patrick palace. He was very friendly, explained all my options and took the time to discuss them with me. He took my case and litigated it perfectly. I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone needing his service.
