About me

Pat has a very successful track record as a trial lawyer, though she believes that she serves clients best by keeping them out of the courtroom.  Pat has a practical and experienced outlook on workplace issues, ranging from personnel policies to discrimination and sexual harassment. 

She provides solid, workable advice to employers on creating workplaces where employees are satisfied and productive.  Pat's wise and sophisticated approach to issues that invariably arise in workplace environments helps employers and employees avoid claims and costly litigation.
