Pitbull attorney with a heart of gold!
I was fortunate enough to hire Ms. Koch after consulting with 4 other attorneys. None of the others felt they could help me, but within days of our first consultation, Ms. Koch had me in court pursuing the Order that I so desperately needed. This was the beginning of a yearlong pursuit of a bitter divorce. Ms. Koch tenaciously defended my rights, and the rights of my children, and was extremely sensitive to the hurts and scars that each of us were feeling from the situation at home. Her kindness and compassion, coupled with excellent legal knowledge and advice were invaluable throughout the entire process of the divorce. Initially - I sought a strong and capable attorney to guide me through one of the worst periods of my life. With Koch and Associates, I was so fortunate to find a gifted attorney - and so much more! Compassion, a protective spirit, understanding, and tenacious dedication to obtaining what was right for me and my kids. Highly, highly, recommend Koch & Associates!

Honest and effective
I sustained a shoulder injury at work . My shoulder continued to be a problem and the Dr that I was seeing ordered an MRI. The MRI showed a possible rotater cuff tear and the Dr felt I needed surgery. This is when work comp wanted a second opinion from a Dr of their choice, who said the MRI was inconclusive and thought I should get a cortisone shot and more therapy. After another month of therapy and the shot I was still having pain and they did not want to approve surgery. This was when I spoke with Patty and retained her. She was always available to answer my questions and was able to get them to approve the surgery and I did have a full tear of my rotator cuff. So then I'm looking at a long rehab and not sure if I can go back to my mechanics job or if it will even be there. Patty got my checks back on time when they started suddenly forgetting to mail them on time. She made sure I got all the therapy I needed to get strong enough to go back to my normal job when they tried to say I didn't need more therapy. I ended up being able to go back to my job and also got a very nice check at the end of it all. Patty was always there and had a positive attitude when I was really scared and frustrated with the whole situation. I would recommend her without hesitation.

A Caring Attorney
Patti is an attorney that goes above and beyond to help resolve your case. She is one of the most caring and passionate attorneys. Patti has been working with us to help resolve a custody case. She makes you feel likes she cares about you and the people involved. It is more than a job to her it is an avocation. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent family attorney.

Extremely Complicated Divorce
Patti, her associate, and entire staff were always informative, helpful, and compassionate. I enthusiastically endorse Patti who went above and beyond throughout my year long ordeal. She consistently took the time to listen to my concerns and address my questions without rushing or causing me to feel ignorant. If you want a lawyer who will not give up or give in, Patti is the lawyer you should seek.

Patti is very caring and takes an interest in you personally. You know she is giving 100% to your case. Her staff is very professional and friendly. Extremely knowledgeable. I will and have recommended her to everyone.

Patrice was very helpful and caring when setting up our Estate Trust. We had many questions to ask and she answered them all. She too had a lot of questions for us, so that we really understood all the facts of having a trust and what tax implications it could have on our beneficiaries. We also have a blended family(non blood relatives) that needed to be identified as such and she gracefully helped us through that defining part of decision making. We felt so much relief after meeting with her and letting her set up the trust.

Above and Beyond my Expectations
Patrice was very compassionate about my situation. She explained the insurance language to me in terms I could understand without making me feel inferior. She made great suggestions for my case and went above and beyond in keeping me informed throughout the process until the case was resolved. I would (and have) recommend her to be the first person to call when in need of any legal advice.
