Outstanding service
Patricia Sullivan is the best and most efficient attorney I have ever worked with. She’s a good, honest person and is great at her job. Phone calls and emails were always returned promptly. She was patient as she walked me through the process of going through my divorce. She and her staff were very professional and a pleasure to work with during a difficult time. If I could give more stars I would. Thanks Pat!!!

Straight Forward and Honest!
I have known attorney Sullivan since 1999. She has assisted me through two painless divorces and two child support cases. Because of Attorney Sullivan and her attention to detailed research, my daughter's support will remain in place. She is extremely fair, professional, a great listener and her fee is very reasonable. Just knowing she is a phone call away makes me feel secure.

Positive Results
After an initial meeting with Pat regarding a child support issue, I was quick to hire her as I valued her straight forward and honest approach. She works in a caring and professional manner and was able to resolve my case quickly. Not only was I pleased at the outcome, the other party involved was complimentary on how courteous she was. I would highly recommend her for your legal needs.

Head and Shoulders above the rest
Last October I contacted attorney Sullivan about my desire to end my marriage. Her high dedication and forward thinking helped me and family thru this difficult process. If you are looking to consult and or hire an attorney look no further. She kept me on point and driving to the end game which was an amicable divorce. Highly recommended, can not stress this enough. I will be forever thankful for her help as I move into my new phase of my life.

Best of the best!
5.0 star rating11/3/2017 First to Review OMG -what a life saver for me - Pat Sullivan was one of the best things that has happened to me. She is patient, tough when she needs to be, understanding, empathetic and extremely knowledgeable in the law. My first hand experience going through the Rhode Island law system, she is extremely well respected by her peers, the judges and the negotiators - they consistently greeted her and by the body language you could see the quiet respect and admiration. My divorce case was probably one of the toughest in RI and longest (over two years) and Pat stuck with me when she easily could have said this is nutty - why put myself through this. Thank God she did!! She was available 24/7 giving me her cell phone number - I was treated as a person and not just some client/job. Her rates were fair and she was always accurate on time and hours. I am so happy that I had Pat in my life during this tumultuous time period. Divorce is never easy but in my case you had to have the patience of an oak tree and Pat never wavered. As my ex boasted to me "I have the best Divorce Lawyer in RI" - we'll he dropped her as well as another until the third lawyer hung on - I personally think I had the best lawyer and I can use facts. Can't say enough about Pat Sullivan - if you want a fighter and consummate professional in your corner - stopped looking and pray Pat has the time to take you on as client - if she can then rest assured that you are in great hands with absolutely the best experience and legal mind!

Excellence in Representation
The experience I had with Pat Sullivan was truly outstanding! Pat's professionalism and amicable approach made a difficult time for our family much easier. I highly recommend her.

Passionate Client Advocate
Pat has a remarkable ability to cut to the heart of the matter and avoid wasting time. She is tremendously organized and her attention to detail is truly amazing. She could recall discussions from months prior without consulting her notes. She listened carefully and tried to create outcomes that were tailored to my personal situation. In short, I could not be more happy with her representation, guidance and input into my case.

Pat Sullivan one of a kind, the best kind
Pat Sullivan is by far the best Divorce Lawyer out there. She is honest, yes I said honest!! She tells you exactly how it is. I can't put into words how wonderful she was. She doesn't play stupid games that cost you thousands of dollars, like other Lawyer do. My EX husband ( I love saying that) Did some pretty horrible stuff and she got me more then I ever thought possible. I love ya Pat!!

If you need a custody lawyer, Patricia Sullivan is without a doubt the best lawyer for the job.
We met with Attorney Sullivan when we needed an experienced, no-nonsense lawyer who could help us with a very difficult custody case involving father's rights. We immediately knew she was the right choice. Attorney Sullivan has gone above and beyond my expectations. She responds to every communication extremely quickly and efficiently. I hired Attorney Sullivan for her expertise; she is blunt and honest, whether it is something I want to hear or not. Attorney Sullivan is an outstanding lawyer who truly cares for her clients. Her professionalism and organizational skills are exemplary. Going into court with Attorney Sullivan is extremely comforting because she is always prepared and professional. After seeing her in court, and how she has handled my ongoing case, there is no one else I would want representing me. I very highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a competent family lawyer.

Total Professional, Would Use Pat again in an instant!!
Patricia is a highly qualified attorney and provided a very professional service to me, always returning calls and emails promptly, even outside normal business hours. This was very helpful to me during extended periods of international travel, and I always had total confidence that she was representing my best interests at all times. I found her rates very reasonable for the quality of service offered. I highly recommend Patricia if you're looking for a straight talking and professional attorney.

Divorce Sucks, Your Lawyer Doesn't Have To
Patricia Is a well qualified, well prepared and very capable lawyer. She represented my through my divorce and continues to represent me concerning visitation issues. I would highly recommend her.
Posted by Diane | September 23, 2014
Highly Recommend!
I highly recommend Patricia if you're looking for an outstanding attorney. Patricia is a highly qualified attorney who provides exceptional service by promptly returning calls and emails, while keeping rates very reasonable by holding brief and extremely productive meetings. Pat is always conscious of working professionals and always held our meetings very early in the morning, which was most convenient for me. A few colleagues were using other attorneys at the same time, for the same service, and shared their terrible stories of high rates, long meetings, and ineffective outcomes. I wouldn't have chose anyone else to represent me in the courtroom! If you're looking for the BEST, Pat is certainly who you want on your side.

Divorce Case
I hired Pat to help me through a divorce. During my case Pat was not only professional and helpful but made me feel at ease in the courtroom. When we first met Pat took me step by step of the divorce process explaining what would happen during or time together. A professional and knowledgeable attorney all the way !!

Excellent Experience
I had a wonderful experience with Pat Sullivan as my divorce attorney. She provided great service at a reasonable rate. I read the review given by "Joseph" and I can't imagine anyone would ever have that type of experience with Pat. That was not my experience at all! I would recommend Pat without hesitation to anyone going through a divorce.
