Saved me from going to jail
Should of went to jail but Mr. Cafferty got possesion charge dropped. Only had to deal with ccw permit violation and paraphernalia charge. Luckily I didn't go to jail and ended up on probation. Not happy about probation but better than going to jail. Very happy with his work. Could of been a lot worse with a public defender. Definitely worth the money even if you have to borrow or put it on the credit card. No amount is too much to have stuff dropped off your record. Something a public defender will never be able to do for you.

He Will Fight For You!
During my time as Deputy Chief on The Racine Police Department , Assistant Chief at UW Milwaukee, or my time as Director of Safety and Security at Racine Unified School District, I was not allowed by policy to make a statement like this. I’ve found my officers several times facing off against Atty. Pat Cafferty. Now in my retirement, I’m able to go on record and say my friend and Attorney, Patrick Cafferty and Pat Cafferty Law Office by far has provided a service that is “unbeatable”. From minor traffic violations, to serious criminal matters call Patrick Cafferty he will work for you!

Brilliant Attorney, Great Guy
I recently had Pat Cafferty help me for the second time. He is always so easy to work with and makes me feel like I have the right guy on my side. He knows what he is doing but also speaks to me in a way that I can understand so I know what is next in the process. It helps to have someone smart on your side, it takes some of the stress away when you get into this situation.

Excellent choice for criminal defense
As an Illinois lawyer, I have had occasion to refer clients to Attorney Cafferty for serious criminal matters as well as DUI and Speeding tickets. He has achieved excellent results for all of the clients I have referred to him. For matters in Southeast Wisconsin, he is best choice for a Criminal Defense Lawyer. Give him a call and you won’t be disappointed. He is professional, experienced and an excellent lawyer.

Excellent OWI Legal Defense
I was charged with two offenses related to a first time OWI, and was worried how this would affect my life, my career, my driver's license, and insurance rates along with the stigma of being convicted. Attorney Cafferty navigated the courts, precisely and skillfully, to achieve a dismissal of all of the charges against me at trial. From the first phone call consultation, to the last pre-trial meeting, Attorney Cafferty made himself available every step of the way. His professionalism and knowledge of the legal system is unmatched. He's an honest, hard-working attorney who will give it to you straight and carry out the best possible legal defense. Without question, I highly recommended him.

Exceptionally skilled attorney!
Mr. Cafferty was hired as attorney for a family member following a very poor experience with a public defender. Mr. Cafferty took time to gather all relevant facts and materials for the cases at hand. He was direct, accurate, reassuring and confident. I would recommend him to anyone who seeks an attorney who is both highly competent and gets things done.

Great law firm
Pat recently helped me out with a jam I got myself into, with a great end result. Pat came highly recommended by a prominent person in the judicial system & didn’t disappoint. I’d recommend the Cafferty law firm anytime.

I highly recommend attorney Cafferty as your defense attorney! He has shown our son and family the utmost respect during a difficult time with a high profile case. He was not only kind and compassionate but professional and assertive when he needed to be. He was definitely on our side!!! We beat the case! I would hire him again in a second!
