The right man for the job. No matter what it is.
Attorney Petrick has been by my side every step of my journey through the quagmire that attempts to pass for a legal system in Fayette county. And despite numerous setbacks and flat out incompetence on the part of several local officials he’s always been able to fix the clerical mistakes and a get a handle on the case even when I had no idea what was going on. He is still representing me in my current case matters and I will continue to retain his services as council for the foreseeable future even after this hurdle is cleared. If you find yourself looking for legal representation I feel that I can recommend Brendan’s law firm with no hesitation. While our matter is ongoing he is continuing to match every action with a reaction. I am happy with the service legally speaking and the attention he pays to me as a client.

Outstanding and honest attorney
Mr Petick won a very complicated case for me when everyone told me it was a case that I couldn't win. He is honest and extremely intelligent. I highly recommend him and if I ever need an attorney in the future, it will be him.

Excellent attorney
Atty Petrick settled a case for me in one meeting that had been going on since 1995. It was a property line dispute and attending one Millcreek township meeting settled the case. My parents who are now deceased tried to get this settled and then it was passed on to me. He was well prepared and persisted until it was acknowledged that there was no reason for this to have gone on this long. Thanks to a new supervisor John Morgan and Atty. Petrick the matter was resolved in weeks.

"Brendan is an experienced and accomplished trial lawyer that is prepared to help you with a DUI or other matter.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"When you are facing a DUI, you need an experienced litigator and trial attorney like Brendan Petrick in your corner to ensure the best possible outcome. Most cases can be resolved through the ARD program, but even those simpler cases can go south if handled by a cut-rate practitioner who sees you as nothing but a quick fee. I have known Brendan for twenty years and admire his attention to detail, his subject-matter expertise, his diligence, and above all his commitment to his client's best interest. He is truly one of the good guys. He is attentive and responsive to his clients, and he knows how to negotiate for the best results. I highly recommend Attorney Petrick, and refer clients to him frequently, for DUI as well as other matters."
