Focus, Follow Up and Brains
A simple call back seems to be a trait that's hard to come by today. If I do get a call back , with most attorneys , it usually leaves me with more questions than answers. That all changed when I hired Patrick for a very complicated Real Estate transaction that had multiple moving parts. The deal could have died on several occasions but his tenacity and smarts kept it all together. While everyone expects the best from their attorney , I got that and then some including attentiveness and quick call backs. He handled the Purchase agreement , loan documents, easement requests and intense negotiations with a local municipality from whom the property was being purchased from. Bottom line: He never over promised but instead he over delivered. A true professional in every sense of the word.

Home purchase
Patrick was extremely professional to work with in the purchase of my first home. He drew up the purchase agreement and everything couldn't have gone smoother with the closing. I would definitely recommend Patrick and plan to use him again in any of my future real estate dealings.

Lease Agreement
As a business owner, I relied on Mr. McKay to help facilitate my lease agreement for my business. After reviewing my lease in depth, Mr. McKay was able to find ways to help cut costs on the agreement as well as protect my own interest. I felt 100% confident in signing the lease agreement for my business. I commend him for is intellect and professionalism. Job well done.
