Practice areas

I am an attorney based in Knoxville, Tennessee, serving Knox and all surrounding counties. The focus of my practice is probate, trust administration, related litigation, and estate planning. I find this area of practice to be extremely rewarding, as my days consist of helping people find personalized and novel solutions to difficult problems. I absolutely enjoy the service aspect of this work, and value each day that I have the opportunity to help my clients.

I am a native of Anderson County, Tennessee, and I currently live in Oak Ridge. I am also a life-long Vols fan, who occasionally cheers for Vanderbilt.

Very knowledgeable, professional and reliable
Patrick represented me in a probate case. This was all new to me, and Patrick was always patient and kind to explain terms and processes. I feel as though he represented me well and was prompt and available to respond to phone calls and emails. I recommend him.
