I just went through a very difficult experience and was so fortunate to have chosen Patricia Abbot as my attorney. She is very diligent, knowledgeable, honest, and knows her way around the Cobb County Court system, which was extremely helpful. I wouldn’t have been able to navigate this process without her. Not only is Ms. Abbott a great attorney regarding the legal aspects, she was kind, caring, and thoughtful regarding my situation. She explained everything to me from the day I hired her in a way I was able to understand and always responded promptly to any questions I had along the way. Additionally, I was not an easy client, as I was scared and anxious, but she was always kind and respectful, regardless of my many emails and calls to her during this process. Ms. Abbott was also able to direct me to get some things done pertinent to my case prior to my court date, which I believe greatly reduced the length of time of my case and kept it from being dragged out longer than necessary. My case was dismissed shortly (weeks) after my court date, thanks to Ms. Abbott’s diligence and guidance throughout this process. Again, I don’t know how I would have been able to navigate this process so successfully and efficiently without Ms. Abbott. Additionally, the cost is very reasonable and is worth every penny for the high quality service she provides. I highly recommend Patricia Abbott and can’t thank her enough for all of her help in getting my case resolved!

I will have to say when it came to hiring an attorney, Ms. Abbott was a very great choice, she was very detailed in making sure as a client you understood what was happening with the case. There was some bumps in the road with my case but she made sure those bumps was paved and there was smooth ride ahead with the case, so with that being said I would and have recommended her as an attorney to anyone that needs a good defense.

It's been a couple months now and I am still in awe , you may be reading this and not be a believer and that's ok ,if you don't believe , believe that I believe and I believe God used Patricia Abbott and her confidence in doing what is right (passion for law and justice) to walk me through one of the most trying times I have been through in the past 25 years. Also believe that Patricia Abbott will fight for you and that her commitment to the law and justice goes beyond what most modern lawyers operate by .In my experience ( I do work around and in the legal field as well ) ,most lawyers are moved by the $$ dollar amount or notoriety they receive for each case . NOT Patricia Abbott ! From the moment I walked into her office I could tell she cared about my case and could see through to the heart of the matter. Working in the legal field I had a list of Marietta's premier criminal defense attorneys and Patricia Abbott was for some reason not on that list .However she should be on top of that list because I believe she has the attitude and spirit that every lawyer should or should at least strive to have . She CARED !
Let me confess that I am a worrier and do not do well with things hanging over my head and I can't tell you how many times in the 5 months I waited to go to court that I called or went by to talk to Patricia , that she could of lost patience with me but what can I say . Patricia never once lost faith or patience in our case and even though we did end up having to go all the way through with a jury trial , she stayed the course and WE WON !!
Although I may never find a way to express in words or deed just how much it meant to me to have good representation in my case I thought I could maybe at least write a few words of gratitude in hopes that if you are reading this and looking for a lawyer that cares and will fight the good fight for and with you , then look no further Patricia Abbott deserves every good mark and recomendation I could ever give her. She is a GREAT LAWYER , yes , but more than that I would say Patricia is one of God's silent warriors and leaders .I was reminded yesterday by a prominent Marietta attorney (in fact the first attorney I called ) that even though I was innocent and found not guilty on all charges ,that we were facing the State and two city attorneys , he even said he thought a lot of me and believed my side but thought the cards were stacked against us . Well , with Patricia's confidence and God's grace , we cut through that day in court like a hot knife through butter . Thank you for everything Patricia , this falls short of showing you the gratitude for that long day in court in March of 2015 but I wanted others to know how much you did for us , it saved my business and reputation !!Blessings to you always !

Pat is a sharp and very smart lawyer. I have admired the care that she takes with her clients, always placing their interests first. Pat has a great knowledge of the law and is a competitor. She is a lawyer that that I would love to have on my team and I'd be worried if I was fighting against her. I endorse this lawyer.
