About Patrick

Learn Patrick’s areas of practice.

Pat has been representing clients all over Montana since 1997.  Pat is highly experienced in the areas in which he practices and he devotes his time to giving his clients the personal attention they expect and deserve when they need help with a legal issue or problem.

Although he has a statewide practice, most of his clients come from Western Montana, primarily Missoula, Ravalli, Lake, Mineral, Sanders, and Granite counties. Pat operates a small solo firm by design, which enables him to give more personal and individual attention to his clients and their legal needs, and at a lower cost. 

Initial consultations with Pat are always free so there is never an obligation to consult with us on any legal matter.

We welcome the opportunity to serve you.

honest, up front, strategic, borders on genius- saved my butt
I would feel bad if dishonest about the service I received. Pat called me to let me know what was happening in my criminal case. He sat me down and treated me like I was his golfing buddy. In other words, he was straight up. I think he is much better at doing law than making money. And that shows his heart's in the right place. His trial skills are unmatched and I won against the scams of the government. He isn't a know it all, and doesn't treat me like I am bothering him when I show up or call. I have met several of his other clients who have the same high opinion of him. He destroyed the prosecutor's case.
