I was facing two felonies and 2 years minimum in state prison. Patrick got both felonies reduced to misdemeanors,and only 10 days in jail with no probation. From the moment I met him I knew he was going to do anything he had to do to to get me a fair sentence. Very detailed and on top of everything. Any questions I had were answered with great detail, and understanding.He made it so I knew what he was planning every step of the way. He kept me in the loop. I walked into that court room extremely confident.Which was a great feeling due to the fact my future was in his hands. I'm a young adult that made one dumb mistake,and my entire future couldve easily taken a turn for the worse. I can never thank Patrick enough for saving me. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs saving. He is extremely knowledgeable,confident, and understanding.I couldn't ask for more from an attorney.

He was hired for & by my son and I was not sure if it was possibly going to work. However I was so relieved after I met him and felt his style to handle the case strongly with his approach. We needed an attorney another time and trusted him to do the job there was no question about having him as our attorney a second time. Both times we felt he did the best handling under the situation.
