Business Attorney | Jan 22
Relationship: Co-worker
"Patrick is an exceptional business litigation attorney who will outwork, out-prepare, and flat out-litigate his opponents. His understanding of litigation and business structure and dynamics is second to none. As a former colleague, I have had the privilege to watch Patrick work on a daily basis and have always been impressed by his ability to grasp complex concepts and distill them into understandable terms. He frequently poured over a case until he had a near encyclopedic recollection of the file and parties involved. Any person who trusts Patrick with their litigation and class action defense needs can rest easy knowing they are in capable hands."
Litigation Attorney | Jan 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I highly endorse Patrick as a true asset to the legal community and a valued colleague."
