  • Richard M. Sands Jr.

    Pat Barry is an excellent attorney, with a well-documented track record of success. While I practice in the area of personal injury law, so we compete for some of the same clients, our client's best interest is always most important. For that reason, Pat is our go to person for medical malpractice and complex personal injury claims such as those involving alleged product defects. He is a leader in the local legal community and a zealous advocate for his clients.
