I contacted Patrick for help with questions about a family member’s estate. Patrick was kind, generous with his knowledge and time, and helped me find what I was looking for. He answered my questions in clear and understandable ways and was simply a delight! Thanks, Patrick!

Patrick handled my Medicaid preservation of assets and spent a lot of time explaining the process and reduced a lot of my stress. He was quick, efficient and always available. A rare and great attorney.

Professional and pleasant for elder law and estate planning
I was very pleased with the experience and results in several areas of law. I am retired from a contracting business where I dealt with a number of lawyers over the years. Mr Quarles and his associate / partner bring a mix of knowledge, patience and pleasant demeanor to complement their knowledge of the law. I can recommend them in the areas in which I interacted with them for advice.

Highly recommended.
After consulting with this attorney, I decided to hire him to assist me. I am glad I did so. He was very professional, and very communicative. He walked me through each step, as well as explained what he would be doing through each step. Highly recommended.

Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Definitely not how one would describe a typical legal dispute! I am young, naive, and clueless in regards to legal issues. Patrick was really friendly and guided me through the process with his expertise. He made the process easy, almost effortless for me. He even won my case while I was out of town! Definitely recommend.

Awesome experience
There are so many positives to my experience that I think it best to list them: 1. Patrick traveled to me! Never had an attorney do that before! 2. He came prepared, with a lot of helpful information. He wasn't afraid to ask difficult questions yet he did so with tact. 3. He maintained a very business, very professional persona, despite being in home. 4. He really seemed to care about my best interest and wasn't there to push what might be most profitable for him. Overall my experience was wonderful and I would not hestitate to call him again in the future should I need assistance again!

Great help with my will
Patrick is very knowledgable and informative. I was clueless when it came to doing this but he explained everything to me and took his time. He has such great patience and will try his best to teach you about something you may not know about when it comes to your will, paperwork and the courts.
