I had the distinct pleasure of working with Ms. Pate in a very long, drawn out, grueling custody case spanning an almost 2 year period.
Ms. Pate was present, active, and determined from start to end.
Her wealth of knowledge and quest for fair and just was evident. She is the type of person who commands attention with grace and professionalism.
Because of her genuine care and concern for the family dynamic and its impact on all parties involved (especially children) she has broadened her horizon to include guardian ad litem work as well as avenues of volunteer work throughout the community.
The respect she deserves is freely given and shown every time she enters the courthouse. She is a force to be reckoned with and one who truly resonates with her clients.
At the end of our very long drawn out emotional trial, my eyes welled up with tears. As did hers.
She puts herself in your position and battles for the best possible outcome. Your fight becomes hers.
I can't say enough about Ms. Pate other than I wish there were more people like her. She is truly one of a kind.
I wish her luck and great strength in all of her future endeavors. She is headed for greatness and definitely a name to watch in the future.

Being a male, I was kind of on the fence about retaining a female attorney, but I am very happy that I did. Andrea represented me when I was divorcing my ex-wife. Andrea and her staff were very pleasant to work with, on call when I needed them to answer questions and treated me like family. She was very upfront during my consultation and did not sugar coat anything. Surprisingly enough, she made the entire divorce process easy. She is definitely a fighter for her clients and someone that you want in your corner. I highly recommend Andrea Rosser-Pate and the Pates Law Group!

Andrea worked on a case of mine years ago and only got me 124.00 per month for a total of 6 children. She kept telling me that she would get me the money my children needed and she never did. Then she had the nerve to tell me to give up my home and rent a place in St. Cloud some where. This made no since to me. Every time I would come into the courtroom.... Andrea would be in a corner talking to my ex and his Attorney laughing up a storm. Even the court caseworkers who looked on the sideline warned me and told me that her behavior was unetical. After getting over 20,000.00 from me....and then turning around to try and get more, is when I fired her. Please don't be fooled people. She will suck up your money and then blame you as if it is your fault why your ex isn't paying the correct child support guidelines amount. RUN from this woman.....
Andrea was my Attorney from 2009 to 2012 and she did NOTHING but take my money and get me only $124.00 a month for 6 minor children to split. She NEVER froze my ex husband's bank accounts or anything else.

Andrea was recommended to me by a therapist who also participates in the collaborative law process, and thus knew Andrea's personality and quality of work first-hand. I interviewed a half dozen other attorneys of several different personality types, fee rates and office environments before carefully selecting Andrea and her team. I could not have asked for a better experience. Andrea exhibits extraordinary empathy for all involved parties throughout the divorce process, anticipates needs, and controls the dialogue. She has a razor-sharp legal mind and firm grasp of case law, and is able to articulate the facts intelligently but at a human level. Crucially, she manages to be highly personable, while coordinating her and her staff's activities in ways that are most efficient and cost-effective. I had a very complex divorce case but still brought in high expectations. Together we formed a cohesive strategy toward pursuing some highly improbable outcomes, and by adapting to circumstantial changes along the way, have achieved most of those outcomes to my benefit, without a need to go to court. Andrea has a strong game face, and is a force to be reckoned with when the need arises, but is as sweet as pie to opposing counsel and clients in the process. Her magnetism breaks down walls, enables collaboration, and makes an unbearable process completely manageable. I couldn't possibly recommend her and her staff highly enough. Very satisfied.

Andrea Rosser-Pate is a very personable attorney who knows the law inside and out. She will fight until the bitter end for what is right for her client and the children and involves you in the process. Before making a legal decision, she makes sure that it is something that her client is comfortable with. Andrea and her paralegals made me feel like I was their only client. They always responded to my questions and concerns right away, even if it was after hours. My case has been settled, however, if issues arise, I will be contacting Andrea to represent me. If you are experiencing Family Law issues, I highly suggest/recommend that you contact Pates Law Group.

Just read her "about me" and it says it all! Andrea is so knowledgeable and always had a way of keeping me focused on the task at hand! She explained things in a way that I could understand and when I was feeling overwhelmed and mentally tired, Andrea kept me calm! I trusted her to make decision because she knew exactly what I wanted! Highly recommended and she gets the job done!

Andrea handled the preparation of my documents in a professional and responsive manner. I was extremely happy with the value she provided. I received the service I was looking for at substantial savings.

Andrea's knowledge of local law and keen legal analysis led to a result which was able to satisfy most of my major goals. She hand-crafted a unique strategy which adapted to my changing needs. Most importantly, she responds quickly when contacted by email and adapts her legal strategy to the changes throughout the case, always keeping goals in mind. She is a local phenom, and comes most highly recommended.

Andrea is great! I've been working with her for over a year now. Despite personal and legal speedbumps thrown in our path, she was able to get my divorce finalized and now we are working together to pursue child support. She's not only good at the legal aspect of her work; she's also good for talking you down off the proverbial ledge when things seem to be going wrong! I am only not leaving my name because everything is still ongoing; otherwise I would.
