When I first met Patricia she came to me highly reviewed and regarded by a prior client. I was involved in a family court custody case unlike anything I had ever imagined. Overwhelmed and in need of guidance, insight and determination to my cause I reached out and was rewarded greatly.
From the day I stepped into her office I was put at ease. Her candidness and awareness of the law and my situation allowed me to put my full trust in her. Time after time she has stood with me against a manipulative abusive ex, and fought without abandon for mine and my child's rights. I cannot emphasize enough what a difference her compassion and intelligence brought into the courtroom in my favor time and time again. I would recommend her to my closest family member with ease.

Patricia Bisesto is a class act. I highly recommend her to anyone who is planning a divorce or needs to switch attorneys. The first time we sat down in a courtroom, it was clear to me that I hit the jackpot with an attorney who knew how to fight, tactfully and effectively. She sticks to the facts, has the utmost respect for the law, and treats all people with respect.
Because Ms. Bisesto is so cool, calm and collected, she is particularly excellent at dealing with bullies. Unfortunately, we were dealing with a bully, but my attorney always took the high road. She did not ever waiver with her steadfast, firm and un-antagonistic approach. Opposing side, on several occasions, threw some heavy bricks at us. How Ms. Bisesto handled that was not by throwing them back or lashing out, but by catching them and turning them into dust.
She is committed and dedicated to her work, will not waste your time and money on frivolous phone calls and emails, and will be honest with you about what to expect. With her expertise and many years of experience in practicing matrimonial law, Ms. Bisesto delivered the results she anticipated from the onset. I have great respect and appreciation for Patricia Bisesto.
A word of advice to divorce clients. Understand that legal professionals bill for their time--all their time. Do some research about divorce processes in your state/county before you hire an attorney. Understand that in this profession, time is money and fifteen minutes wasted on questions your attorney does not yet have answers to is not money well spent. Ask the important questions before you hire your attorney during your interview, and once you hire your attorney, let them do their job. Trust that when they have something to tell you, they will.

After an initial meeting, Patricia seemed wonderful and compassionate so I hired her to represent me in a divorce. She ignored all my warnings about how my ex would attack and she was out-maneuvered by the opposing counsel consistently. She failed to respond to my emails and phone calls and did not reply to the opposing counsel to represent me. It amazes me how incompetent she is in basic communication and record-keeping skills.
