Received great service from Patrick Hughes for a traffic court issue. Seems to truly want to be the helpful servant to his customers, rather than the prototypical too-busy high-priced expert attorney. Highly recommend him to others.

My sister had an issue with the law, Attorney Hugues, was highly recommended by the family attorney.
at the instant I explained the situation, he advised me what to expect, he never failed to return calls, and he deals with you himself, his personality towards people is amazing, when we went to court he had 2 more cases made sure he took care of them 1 at the time and spend time with each one of us, I cannot express how professional he was, and hof thankful I am that I was advised to choose him to represent my sister.

I have had Mr. Hughes represent me for real estate business, he has negotiated contracts for me, and i have referred him to some friends for criminal cases. He is very attentive to details and takes the time to walk people through the process. I trust him implicitly and my friends say the same. Other then for business, I hope to never need an attorney, but if I do.....Patrick Hughes is my first choice!

I sent my legal documents as agreed upon in our initial conversation to Mr Hughes. This was 6 months ago. He was to review the case before accepting to represent me, I thought by doing this he would know his own capabilities and make his own judgement on whether to accept it or not. Well I am still waiting. After numerous calls, faxes and emails he still has not made any contact nor has he returned my legal documents. I am not impressed. An email stating he was not able to take it on and the return of my documents would be appreciated. As an ex military family and reading he was a Marine .... I expected honour and trust .... there is none!!

I talked to more then 5 criminal defense lawyers in New Haven, CT and Pat is the one I chose in the end to represent my wife. We are so glad we made the right choice! He was most helpful, and certainly knowledgable with how things should work out. He not only got a Nolle for my wife's case (so the charges are dropped), but also successfully obtained a complete dismissal on the court date (it usually takes 13 months for the charges to be dismissed after a Nolle). Further more, Pat quoted the most reasonable flat fee (he quoted $500 while all the other attorneys quoted from $1,000 to $1,500). I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking legal assistance!

Overall awesome lawyer. He's very busy and he took on my case dealing with custody of my son. He is personable, professional, listens, and is well educated and knowledgeable. He always asked for my input before making any decisions in court. He has yet to let me down and he's driven all the way to Saybrook 3 times already to deal with my case. He's very flexible with payments. Completely understanding and compassionate to my situation. I have an will continue to recommend him!

I needed help for a misdemeanor case, Mr. Hughes immediately set up a consultation appointment with me. He seemed to be very busy, which is a good sign for a lawyer. My main concern is to minimize the negative effects my misdemeanor has on my future employ-ability. During the appointment he patiently listened to me and gathered all the relevant information pertaining to my case. He is an excellent listener and understood me from the start. He is also a good communicator, leaving me feeling very well informed with the knowledge of what is likely to happen, and what is not likely to happen. Later on, he informs me that for my particular case, it is possible for me to go to court without an attorney. He nevertheless gave me his business card telling me if I feel like I need him to represent me after my experience in court, he'd be there to help.

Recently I needed an Attorney for an issue that Mr. Hughes made seem smaller. His professional advice and listening manner is outstanding, Never once did he talk over me or talk above me. He kept me well informed along the way and made me feel at ease every step and cleared up the matter with his negotiating skills in a short spell. He will definately be my lawyer for all my legal needs from now on. I found him quite impressive, friendly, a listener, and all the while.....Professional. I highly recommend him!
