I concur with previous posts about his temper. Yelling and screaming on the phone over simple questions that we needed answers to. Was ill prepared in the court room, thus, sentenced to a year in jail. Extremely slow in responding to phone calls, texts, and emails. Sometimes no response at all. We had already hired and paid this man before looking up reviews. He was wonderful on the phone during our free consultation. Then everything changed once he was paid. HUGE mistake on our part. Never again!

Patrick Ford took $5000.00 from me to represent me in a criminal case. I was extremely nervous and anxious about the possibility of going to jail. This so called attorney will not answer your phone calls. I fired him after 4 months and he refused to refund any monies. I ended up going to jail for two years for a crime I didn't commit. I am now out and I am seeking legal council to attempt to collect my hard earned monies that this attorney "stole" from me. Do not hire this man.

I hired Patrick Ford for a simple driving tickets case. He required for me to pay up front, which I thought would speed up the case, so I was happy to do it. He "worked with my case" for about 6 months, while staying in contact with me sometimes and making excuses for not going to my hearings. I was never rude or nasty with him, and was always understanding. One day he told me that he just finished up with my final hearing and that everything went perfect. I would be receiving a letter in the mail in 7 to 10 business days from the DMV in Tallahassee. I waited those 10 business days, then I called the DMV in Tallahassee only to find out that no such case had been "won" and that my license is still considered revoked. From this point on, I have not been able to get in contact with Patrick, he has not returned any of my phone calls, and I have tried to show up at his office, but the door always seems to be locked when I go. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone, in fact I make sure that if anyone wants a lawyer, to NOT give him their business!

I highly recommend Mr Ford. He not only was extremely helpful in handling a difficult case for my daughter but he actually did it with care. I think finding a good lawyer is very possible but finding a good lawyer who also cares is a rare occasion.

Patrick is very reliable, honest and dependable. He is always there when you need him. I would highly recommended him to anyone. He was able to get my daughter home in a timely manner.

Over the past 5+ years we have used Attorney Ford for all our legal issues and he has always gone above and beyond all our expectations. Not only is he always courteous and professional, he always leaves us with a better outcome then we could have possibly imagined.

Mr. Ford took my money to represent a criminal case. He did return my phone calls but would scream at me on the phone. Once, while in a store, he was screaming so loud at me, you could hear him through the phone and I was asked to leave the store. He also failed to show up at more than one hearing saying he didn't know about them. At that point, I fired him and also requested my money back. After several certified letters to him, (which he never responded to) I contacted the Florida Bar and filed a formal complaint. They advised me what to do, I did it and nothing has been done. I guess being a lawyer allows you to legally steal and get away with it!

Patrick Ford took $3000.00of my money to represent me in a simple criminal case and did nothing but prosecute and accuse me instead of helping and defending me as I had paid for. He cursed and yelled at me of which I had several witnesses that heard him on a speaker phone for just asking simple questions that I needed answers to. I am not privy to legal procedures and simply needed someone to help me get through this and had trusted him to do so. I wrote him and had asked that he deduct the monies used for his services and return the remaining amounts, as I would not allow anyone to talk to me like he had and wished to find someone that would help me instead of prosecute me. I have never heard back from him since and will be hiring another lawyer to help get my monies back.
