Patrick founded The Barthet Firm in 1995 after having chaired the commercial practice of one of Miami’s most respected law firms for a number of years. In addition to practicing law, he created a paralegal curriculum in 1985 still offered today and which has since educated thousands of students; he was elected President in 1986, 1992, 2007 and again in 2013 of the city’s oldest and most active business networking organization; and in 2008 he was appointed Honorary Consul of Malta, the island nation where he was born.

He has represented many of South Florida’s most recognized and respected names in the construction, maritime and healthcare industries through both good and bad times, always providing the practical counsel they require. Known for telling clients not what they wish to hear but what they need to know, Patrick has always stood out from other lawyers.
