Great to work with! Helped us to I-485 approval!
Patrick Hatch was very helpful in guiding us through our I-485 AOS interview. He helped prep us for the interview, review our materials and went with us to the interview on relatively short notice. He helped us feel comfortable with the process at the Durham office and his experience made us feel comfortable throughout the process. Most importantly the process concluded with a quickly approved petition.

Excellent Lawyer!
After my prior immigration lawyer almost failed my case, I requested Mr. Hatch to take on the case. He resolved all issues with professionalism and a deep knowledge of immigration law. During the last several years, I have been working with him and his team. They were always responsive , trustworthy, attentive to my individual needs and personally great people!

Great Immigration Attorney!!
The biggest challenge in finding a good attorney revolves around finding an honest, trustworthy and knowledgeable professional who cares about you. Patrick is exactly that. My case wasn't the ordinary immigration case, but he surely made it happen. It wasn't easy, but he worked diligently to achieve the best results and kept me informed every step of the way. His honesty and good ethics are certainly remarkable. He will give you an honest advise and he will work to your best interest. Hatch Law Office has surely provided me with an A+ experience and result. Anything regarding immigration can be very lengthy in time and extremely bureaucratic, but Patrick puts his best work to make it happen...and he will answer to your e-mails and return your phone calls! I highly recommend Hatch Law Office for any immigration need you may have; I know Patrick will take good care of you and provide you with the best alternative for you case, just as he did for me.

Expertise, diligence, right answers, ethics.
Words can’not describe how satisfied I am with Patrick's work. Any, words, any language, any ratings would consistently fall short. Patrick has been simply EXCELLENT! His remarkable diligence, expertise and human nature have made this one of the most pleasant and seamless legal processes I’ have ever gone through. He has always been available to answer absolutely all my questions, and always on time. He seemed to always have the right answer, and he really knows the system. It is remarkable how being so young he knows the system so well. It's like dealing with a lawyer who has been doing this for over 40 years! I would absolutey not hesitate for a second to recommend Patrick's services to anyone who needs to work on immigrations issues. Bravo Patrick! And sincerely, muchas gracias!

Erard Trademark Registration
We hired Mr. Hatch to apply for our trademark in 2006. He was professional, industrious, and most of all courteous and down to earth. He was very responsive and methodical, and had previous knowledge of how to steer through some of the pitfalls encountered when applying for a trademark. His rates were more than competitive, and we had a our brand trademarked in no time at all. I will certainly consult him again and recommend him to anyone.

Patrick Hatch - Trustworthy and Kind Immigration lawyer
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Patrick Hatch on a rather rigorous and demanding immigration case. His continued perseverance and patience with all parties involved speaks to his high character and desire to do the best job he possibly can for his client. Mr. Hatch is extremely good about keeping all parties up-to-date and on making sure his clients have a complete understanding of their situation and the choices before them. In my particular experience, Mr. Hatch had to work with a difficult party to accomplish the goals of his client and he continued on long after many lawyers would have thrown in the towel and admitted defeat. I strongly recommend him as a trustworthy, efficient and kind lawyer.
