Pat represented the best in representation. She quickly understood the complexities of our situation and was able to explain clearly and thoroughly our options. She worked diligently on our matter and her attention to detail was unparalled. At all times she kept us informed. We could not have asked for a better advocate.

Attorney Patricia Gardner is the best attorney I have ever worked with, by far. She is extremely knowledgeable in broad areas of the law. Patricia cares deeply for her clients, and I offer this very important point: She is VERY responsive to client's questions, concerns, needs, anything at all. She's tough, tenacious, and relentless. She is a FIGHTER. My particular legal action involved a complicated derivative lawsuit filed against a Condominium Association's Board of Trustees. The Board hired a very expensive big city law firm. Did that scare, affect, or intimidate attorney Gardner? Are you kidding me? The lawsuit was settled to my complete satisfaction, and I owe Attorney Gardner a very well deserved "THANK-YOU", and I offer Attorney Gardner the highest recommendation I can possibly give.

Pat Gardner personifies the meaning of 'advocate'. In our case, she took the time to understand the complex history, confusing recorded documents, and nuanced arguments presented. In a very real sense, she took 'ownership' of the significant and detailed research necessary to best present our case as a clear matter of law, not merely one of interpretation. Specifically, she brought her extensive experience in contract law to dissect the murky language in our Bylaws. Then she followed the language into relevant property law in our state to debunk opposition claims to voting rights to which they were not entitled.
Pat's skills at collaborating, being assertive when required, but not pushy made it a pleasure to work with her. I have observed that she is entirely professional and well able to manage her caseload. Specifically, she met all promised deadlines for drafts, client meetings, and filings even though our case was not the most potentially lucrative for her practice. Throughout our litigation, she has maintained our interests, including forthright assessments of our chances of success. She has always been very mindful of our costs and has done all within her power to help contain them.
Finally, it should be noted that her experience spans a broad spectrum of the law, even though she has recently chosen to specialize. Pat Gardner has been tenacious, resourceful, dedicated, and tough. She understands the critical importance of framing the facts and relevant law into the most compelling argument and then hammering it home. She is a savvy, professional fighter. I can think of no one Iâ€™d rather have represent me in court.
