Mr. McDonough was contacted by my family following a false accusation made. From the first contact on the phone to the very last email, Mr. McDonough was patient, thorough, and gave us great peace of mind. He listened without judgement, gave sound consultation and realistic timelines and expectations from the very first meeting and continued to do so throughout the working relationship. His communication skills with us were excellent and he went above and beyond for my family. I can't highly recommend him enough.

I was facing misdemeanor Animal Cruelty charges for my pet that I took to have treatment for her leg injury that I am unsure of how she received the leg injury; it just appeared out of nowhere. Thanks to Mr. Patrick McDonough, I got my dog back and will have a clean record again!!!!

I engaged Pat McDonough as my attorney when my original attorney failed to follow my instructions to try and obtain a plea agreement to avoid my pending trial. Within a week, Pat had contacted the Assistant District Attorney to begin working out a plea agreement. Within four months, he was successful in having an approved plea agreement with probation that avoided a trial, met my needs, and helped me preserved my business.

Pat McDonough has helped both myself and my teenage daughter with two legal cases that required his expertise and legal savvy. My daughter was out past curfew and was involved in a car accident where she was not the driver. In addition, she refused to take a breathalyzer test and was arrested. Pat was able to not only represent her, he had her case expunged and her reputation saved in the public eye. There is no public record of this incident and I am happy to report that my daughter is a successful college student and doing well. In my case, I was arrested for a DUI that was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Pat suggested that a I do a lot of prep work before my hearing, presented my case early to the prosecutor for a plea, and represented me at my plea hearing. He was able to have one charge completely dropped and my other charge reduced to reckless driving. The most important thing Pat did for me was to keep my personal and professional reputation in tact and reduce any harm this arrest would have had regarding my work. My reputation is priceless, and this is the reason that if I ever find myself or any of my family members in legal trouble, Pat will be my first and only call for expert legal representation and advice.

I have been in this country for over 10 years without yet getting my legal status confirmed. I have two children that are in 10th and 8th grade. I have been married for 18 years. I was arrested for felony theft by shoplifting and hired an attorney. She told me we could go to trial but there was no way to win or I could enter a plea of guilty. This would have resulted in me being deported.
Days before the trial I decided to hire Pat McDonough. Within a month he was able to enter a no contest plea to be reduced to a misdemeanor under the first offender act and will be dismissed within 11 months. My immigration attorney has told me this will allow me to stay in the country. He saved me and my family's life. He was more expensive than the other attorney but worth every penny.

My son, at 21 years old, got himself into a bit of trouble with the law. He was charged with three felony drug related charges. Pat and his team worked with my son, gave him great advice, and made sure he followed through with their instructions. At the pre-trial hearing, Pat was able to negotiate two of the three charges down to misdemeanors and their third felony charge was dropped. Would I use him again? Absolutely! Although, I really hope I don't have to.

My charges included manufacturing, possession of marijuana over an ounce, as well as possession of a firearm while committing a crime. I knew from previous reviews that I wanted to work with Pat. He listened to my side of the story and gave me a checklist of things he would like for me to complete prior to my court date. My checklist included things such as a drug evaluation, community service hours, characters letters, etc. The court date finally arrived and not only did Pat get my gun charge dropped, but he also was able to manage to get the other two felony charges dropped down to misdemeanors. I would have never been able to walk out of that courtroom without Pat's help. He is very professional, helpful, and knowledgeable in all aspects and was able to answer and help with any questions I had throughout the process. I am so grateful to have been able to work with someone that worked to get the best results for me. Pat will be the only person I will work with in the event that any further situations occur.

Mr. McDonough, in a very comprehensive and efficient manor, was able to put together a strong legal argument for my case that had my charges suppressed and penalty decreased by my very first appearance in court. Selecting a lawyer is extremely stressful and shrouded in uncertainty, but even before Mr. McDonough got started with my case at least through meeting him I was given the piece of mind that I knew I was in good hands. Even though my potential outcome wasn't clear yet, I knew that all that could be done would be. Ultimately, I am very pleased that Mr. McDonough was able to help me get my DUI and Traffic charges suppressed to lesser charges, especially in the quickest and most timely way.

5 Stars***** - I would give more if I could! Pat and the law firm of Anderson, Tate, & Carr were very professional, friendly, caring, and sympathetic. He/They realized the stress of our situation at hand and helped us become comfortable and at ease. Everything was handled very promptly and efficiently. He was always available to talk with either by phone, emails, or texts. My questions were always answered quickly and thoroughly . The case was completed much quicker than I had imagined which allowed us to get on with our lives and put the errors behind us. Pat is just an all round good guy. I'm sure his reputation is excellent throughout the county and state. If you need legal help, you need to call Pat.

Pat did an excellent job handling my case. He got a recent speeding ticket reduced saving me points on my commercial license and money in the long run. I would recommend Pat to any of my family, friends and associates.
