Patrick came highly recommended and I was not let down. He handled the very messy details of my divorce stipulation with expert finesse and an in-depth understanding of the challenges I was facing. He approached the entire situation with logic and reason and ensured I understood the best options after all avenues of approach were considered. He is down-to-earth and exhibits detailed understanding for each unique situation. I cannot say enough great things about Patrick, and I highly recommend him to anyone facing any legal actions.

I have retained Mr. Maurer on two separate occasions. Both situations he was extremely professional, kept me informed of the process and made a strategy to represent me and win. He is thorough with the facts and comes well prepared to court. He is definitely the attorney you want to represent you when the outcome matters!

Mr. Mauer provided outstanding support over the last three years during my custody, expenses and visitation trial. Extremely knowledgeable with regards to Divorce in Virginia - responsive, timely and effective. I am extremely pleased with the outcome of the trial. He works at Pender and Coward as part of a team of three with Richard Garriott and Naveed Kalantar - they were recommended from my previous attorney who became a judge - I cannot thank them enough and would recommend them to anyone who had a contentious or concerned about their divorce or has an issue with custody.

To just say Patrick knows what he's doing would be an understatement. He is well versed, acquainted and connected within the Hampton Roads justice system and family law. I can honestly say that without his expertise my life would be drastically worse than my current status. Over the past three and half years Patrick has represented me through, as he put it "a monster of a case" between me and my ex wife where I was being falsely accused and then arrested constantly. Though weathering the storm was hard and along with my career and family taking massive hits at times I never had doubts he was my guy to get me through it all and so far...I've had every charge and false accusation dismissed and my career is getting back on track. If you've ever been on the other side of the court from him then you probably don't like him, but if you're looking for lawyer who knows his stuff and has sound judgment, advice and most of all poise, then this is your guy. He's always returned my calls and texts promptly and never left me hanging. It's said you get what you pay for in an attorney and while fees are not cheap...having Pat there was definitely worth it.

Patrick knows the Law and how to utilize it to best benefit his clients. He is up front, doesn’t pull punches, and is brutally honest because us as clients need to hear the ugly truth. He is aggressively strategic to uphold the position of his clients within the law. If you want an attorney that will go the distance with you, through the ups and downs, even when the cards are stacked against you - He is your man!
I don’t know where to begin... I was involved in a contested divorce, married to a vindictive spouse addicted to shopping and alcohol, and questionable if the last child was mine. Being a service member in Hampton Roads, I was already behind any power curve. My Ex created a plethora of false allegations (a shotgun effect) hoping one would stick, in an effort to extort me into an unreasonable alimony settlement and alienate me from the children. My divorce took six years, as my Ex’s attorney(s) would recuse themselves as they found out about the falsehoods of the allegations - still Patrick stood by me through the toughest days of my life. Eventually she was found guilty to falsifying allegations and the Courts entered an Order of Injunctive Relief against her.
Patrick is going to be brutally honest with you, “He is not going to tell you what you want to hear” while holding the opposing counsel accountable for their client. He will tell you the truth and fight for your best interest!

I consulted with Patrick before hiring him to represent me as my Divorce Attorney. During the consult it was clear to me Patrick was not only well versed and a knowledgeable Attorney, but he was caring about my personal health and well being and that of my children as well. I immediately hired him and he gently walked me through some of the toughest days of my life. Patrick stood strong in court and was a terrific and firm negotiator during all proceedings. I would highly recommend anyone to consult with Patrick before talking with anyone else. He will walk along side of you and stand tall for you even on the days you feel like you can't by yourself.
