Patrick Cremeens: An Excellent Lawyer
I hired Patrick Cremeens to represent me in a civil small claims lawsuit I initiated in Florida. As I reside outside of the US it would have been difficult and expensive for me to have handled the small claims suit myself. Mr Patrick Cremeens initially handled my case and he spent a great deal of time speaking to me about the particulars of my case before I even hired him, which I appreciated greatly. Mr. Patrick Cremeens performed excellent work on my behalf before his colleague Ms DeAnne Jackson, who works at the Law Office of Patrick Cremeens, took over my case half way through. Both individuals kept me up to date on events in the case as they progressed and his law office works exceptionally well as a team. Mr Cremeens is professional and skilled. I could not be more pleased with his or Ms DeAnne Jackson’s work on my behalf, or the outcome they worked hard to bring about. I consider myself fortunate that Mr. Cremeens and Ms. Jackson agreed to take my case and I highly recommend Patrick Cremeens, DeAnne Jackson and the Law Office of Patrick Cremeens.

One Of Many Clients (Leonardo)
Patrick was instrumental in creating an appeal case and was willing to go the extra mile in my Alimony Case , He was very professional. One thing that sticks out with Patrick is that he listen to his client's concerns and decisions. This was very import as the case did not have to go to the Appellate court. Thanks Patrick for being there and supporting me in my time of need and urgency . I would recommend Patrick to anyone.

Service and Expertise Customer Comment for Patrick Cremeens
I engaged Mr. Cremeens for a complicated and messy eviction matter. Patrick was quick and decisive in his suggestions of how to proceed. The matter was resolved before I expected saving me both time and money. As an owner and 27 year veteran in the mortgage trading and management space, I have dealt with countless law firms big and small. I have become almost accustomed to delays and lack of contact from others. Mr. Cremeens reminded me that I am the client and paying the bills, and in my opinion provided every bit if not more service than I paid for. I would rarely tell my counsel that I felt he should raise his rate, but Mr Cremeens is one that I did as his service demands a premium. I would gladly recommend his service should you wish to contact me.

Won my outboard boat motor warranty case!!
Patrick was awesome in handling my outboard boat motor warranty case based on the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. He made the entire process as smooth as possible for me, and was super at coaching me to provide the necessary documentation and history of my case. Patrick portrayed an air of competence that readily kept the other side at bay, as he guided the terms of our settlement during mediation, which left me ultra-satisfied with the results. Patrick and his staff were always most professional and prompt with replies and documentation. I highly recommend The Law Office of Patrick J. Cremeens for assistance with your issues.

GREAT GUY, WON MY CASE
Patrick is a good lawyer, and great to work with. He is very acessable when you need him. In my case he needed to travel 3 hours to be present when meeting with the other side, he was right there. He tried Lemon Law for me and when that did not work he took it step furthur and after having my car for two years I got a brand new car of my choice.

Ford Motor Company Defective F-550 Truck
Patrick handled the Commercial Truck Warrenty / Lemon Law lawsuit with Ford in a professional manner. Patrick ALWAYS returned phone calls and kept me informed as the case moved forward. His negotiation skills were instrumental in resolving the case in my favor. I would highly recommed Patrick and plan on using him again in the future, if necessary.

Lawsuit attorney was excellent
Patrick and his staff were courteous, timely and helped me mediate a situation I was in. Most of all, he is caring and is simply a wonderful attorney.

Don't waste your time or your money!
We hired Patrick and our case was immediately handed off to his wife. If you read her bio it is not nearly as impressive as his bio. During our initial call with Patrick he informed us of 3 possible outcomes from our Lemon Law case. He told us we had a "slam dunk - very strong" case. Once hired, conference calls were scheduled and never took place. We would cancel plans to make ourselves available for the scheduled conference calls and then the call never took place. Very poor scheduling. Very inconsiderate. When his wife showed up for our mediation (late I might add), she informed us of possible outcomes we could expect. None of which were what her husband told us we could expect when we agreed to hire HIM! Find another attorney and be sure to do your own research before you agree to even file a Lemon Law case. Did you know you can take your case to mediation without an attorney? Certainly would be our recommendation rather than hiring this firm!

Response from Patrick Cremeens November 4, 2020
This anonymous review has been identified as coming from former clients that my law firm represented over a year ago. One of anonymous is a paralegal at a law firm and knows the effect a bad review can have on a lawyer. The review contains many untruths. Anonymous’s case was not passed off. Anonymous was not advised that anonymous had a “slam dunk” or guaranteed any range of expected results. Anonymous was not scheduled for calls that never took place. The lawyer that anonymous only refers to as “his wife” is Jeanne Cremeens, Esq., who is an attorney with my firm and yes, who also happens to be my wife. Jeanne worked with anonymous on the case without complaint for several months. Jeanne was not late to mediation. I cannot comment on anonymous’s statements about communications at mediation, which are confidential. Anonymous settled their case knowingly and with full advice of counsel. Anonymous did not express any dissatisfaction with Jeanne and me until after anonymous received the firm’s final billing invoice. About 3 weeks after receiving the bill, anonymous sent Jeanne and me a letter with several complaints similar to this review, many of which were untrue. I promptly addressed their complaints in an email and a telephone call with anonymous, Jeanne, and me. All questions were answered and issues resolved. Anonymous expressed gratitude for our efforts on their behalf. The case was then closed. I did not hear again from anonymous until this review, over a year after that last phone call. This review is not indicative of my abilities as a lawyer. Same goes for Jeanne. Jeanne and I provide competent legal representation to our firm’s clients, and have been doing so for over 28 years combined. Finally, I do not condone the sexist tone of anonymous’s review. Jeanne is much more that somebody’s wife. Jeanne is a well-respected professional. Jeanne has been practicing law just as long as I have. Jeanne has just as much or more trial experience than I do. Jeanne has more mediation experience than I do. Regardless of differences, Jeanne should be addressed in a professional manner with the respect she deserves, especially coming from another professional in the legal community.

Do your homework
I should of had a slam dunk lemon law case, but lost. Then was told I have a strong case to proceed, only to be told they didn’t file correct paperwork and the expert was useless. Constantly got passed around from their office help, always new people. Set appointments for a telephone conference and 2 days later got a call. Constant calls to resubmit paperwork that I already gave them

Horrible Record Keeping. Really Bad.
I spoke to a legal assistant of the attorney's and she constantly got my information wrong. Then I spoke with the attorney briefly over the phone to discuss my Lemon law case. He seemed knowledgeable and probably knows what he is doing. Then it was back to the assistant who kept referring to another person's case/vehicle when corresponding. Several times. Finally FCA just settled the thing with me without need of litigation - months later... and the legal assistant cold calls me a week after that to schedule an appointment. This attorney would do well either hiring an office manager or sorting out his files better. Maybe a competent assistant? I don't know.
