We were lucky enough to be referred to Pat when Keith had an accident at the railroad. Pat was amazing every step of the way. He helped us understand what the next step would always be. He was always available for questions. The entire staff became family and we are so grateful that we had Pat at our table through mediation and the trial.

Pat's knowledge of F.E.L.A is extensive and there was no way I could have filed a case without his assistance.
His professionalism and courtesy is much appreciated during a difficult time in our family's life.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I have known Pat for 16 years through a lawyer group we belong to representing injured railroad workers. I also have served as Pat's local counsel and have had an opportunity to work with him on cases. Pat is one of the most competent attorneys I know in the country and possibly the most zealous advocates for his clients that I know. I consider Pat an excellent colleague, a friend and a mentor.

Pat is an excellent lawyer, primarily focusing in FELA law. I've had the pleasure of being his local counsel in Kentucky on several cases. He has obtained outstanding results for his clients in the case we've handled together and he really cares about his clients.
