Impressed!
I have used this attorney and his firm for my family's needs. I am impressed with his knowledge of the law, his sincerity and most of all his truthfullness when it came to me or my family's needs. There were no false promises made only that he would do his best in order to achieve what my ultimate goal was rather than his. He is unselfish and forthright, I cannot say that about a lot of attorney's, but then again can anyone.

Very helpful!
I had a lot of questions and didn't have all the information that would have been helpful to Mr. Wright. He took me through many different scenarios and helped me to understand the ins and outs of them. He gave me suggestions and ideas on how to go forward with our situation. He responded to my email very promptly and made me feel like it had priority.

He’s a beast!
Patrick is hands down the best lawyer I have ever encountered! Not everyone knows all the laws & has common sense but he’s beyond that! People never tell you the good when they’re upset or when things don’t go their way first and foremost! When things didn’t go my way he fought and fought with no complaints! He put me on the right track and straightened everything out! I had been fighting for two years and he killed it in a day! He should really be a judge because he puts the judges on the edge of a cliff with his knowledge of the law! He’s knowledge will put pressure on you like never before! From beginning to end he has kept me on my toes and treated me and my children as priority and family! I don’t know when he sleeps but I know he loves his career & a mean fight! He will always win! It’s not often that you mean someone that has the licenses he has and pots he has his hands in! In court everyone was always hey Patrick this Patrick that & he’s always professional, fair & fights hard! No one could ever find a better lawyer! Idc what anyone says this guy knows his stuff and was recommended by many judges! He’s a hard guy to beat so if your coming for him you better swing hard like your life depends on it! I will never be able to say or thank him and Shannon enough they’re more than heroes with a great conscious! He’s simply just a great person, great lawyer and family man! God chose him for the position and he exceeds Everytime!

Brilliant, Personable, Knowledgeable Divorce Lawyer!
Patrick Wright is hands down the best genuine and knowledgeable lawyer I've ever dealt with!!! I have hired a few money hungry lawyers before and felt the negative vibes through out my case. I haven't entered the court yet with Patrick. I just hired him about a month ago. Him and his staff picked up on my modification case set in June. I will post another review once my trial is over in June. They have already started to notice a few things that were not in my kids' favor that were pushed by my EX and the opposing counsel. I have to say that Patrick and his staff is a GOD send to people like me who just want a genuine compassionate lawyer by their side who not only looks after their clients' best interest but also is very mindful of the children involved. I have been talking to Allison and Hailey also. Both of them are great at what they do. Sheri is great to communicate with if you have any billing issues. Btw, this is my first positive review for a lawyer. I rarely write any reviews. I am very pleased with his performance on my case thus far. If you are on a hunt for the best lethal combo of sweet-and-salty in your Divorce/Modification case who will aggressively pursue your case and not put up with the opposing counsel's lies and manipulation; one that will make sure the truth is told, not the smoke and mirrors the opposing counsel is trying to present, then look no farther then the THE WRIGHT FIRM!!

Excellent consultation
I saw Mr. Wright for a divorce consultation and he exceeded my expectations. He was very informative and offered great advice pertinent to my specific situation. I would highly recommend.

A lawyer who is true to his clients
I can say that Patrick was a God send to my family. He is very knowledgeable in the law and was appointed by the courts to defend my son, but I can say that you would never know this in our case. He answered calls all hours of the day and on weekends just to make us feel safe and secure on everything we where up against. If you ever need a more straight forward and honest lawyer for your family, I would highly recommend him to you. I know people read reviews and are looking for answers, which I can say it takes alot to impress me, but when I saw Patrick in the court room he didn't even blink an eye when he started to quote the family law codes and did not waive from what he knew was right, I was impressed and thankful to have him on our side. Patrick will hold a special place in my families hearts and soul to know that there is still good honest people in this world. Thank you Michele H

Exceptional Attorney
I have retained Patrick Wright for the last seven years for various legal needs, and referred close friends to him. I am pleased to recommend him. Patrick is an extremely bright and resourceful attorney of unmatched expertise and skill, who thinks creatively outside of the box to obtain his clients the most swift and favorable results in their case. Patrick is a brilliant and aggressive litigator and mediator. He definitely will not disappoint you in either scenario. And most importantly, Patrick does it all with the utmost integrity. It is apparent by how Patrick is received in the courthouse that he is well-respected and well-liked by fellow attorneys and judges. Whether dealing with a simple modification, a high-conflict child custody case, or a divorce which involves division of complex speculative assets, Patrick works closely with his clients in a collaborative effort to achieve the best results for his clients. A dedicated family man himself, and ad litem for CPS children, Patrick cares deeply about the welfare of children. You can trust Patrick to advise you as he would his own family. Patrick takes his cases to heart, and is highly responsive, as he goes above and beyond to protect you, and that which means the most to you. Crucial to all of this is that you can trust Patrick will not exploit your case for his financial gain. (You will not find many reviews which attest to such.) Whether you have a new case, or a case which needs rescuing like mine did, you will never regret hiring Patrick to handle your legal issues. In the past, I've hired the largest firms in the metroplex, as well as smaller private firms, and none of them have yielded me the service, the compassion or the results that Patrick Wright and The Wright Firm, LLP have.

Knowledgeable & Personable
My family and I met with Patrick Wright to address child custody and child support modification. From the beginning Patrick was friendly and very understanding of our stressful situation. He let us voiced all our concerns while taking notes and reviewing documentation. After we addressed all of our concerns, Patrick shared exceptional legal advice and even told us to wait for other items in our situation "to come" before requesting a modification. He also went as far as explaining what opposing counsel could do and how we would tackle each item. Throughout our conversation, he addressed every question, he could tell we were stressed and continue to make us feel more comfortable, more knowledgeable and more at ease with case. We left the office feeling confident we had found the right attorney to handle our case.

Patrick Wright Brilliant Attorney, Highly Recommend.
Mr. Patrick Wright is a brilliant, top class attorney with impressive knowledge and skills in family law matters. Patrick has masterfully handled a range of issues for my family with a very apparent confidence, calm strength and expert legal knowledge. Patrick's dedication, attention to detail, writing and litigating skills are remarkable. I have found Patrick always extremely prepared and organized in Court, always explaining my questions with thoroughness and clarity. Patrick is very tough yet very professional when dealing with opposing counsel. You can be certain he will fight very hard for your case. Mr. Wright is exceptionally dependable. Patrick and his legal team are very organized and client centered always responding promptly to emails and phone calls. I highly recommend Patrick Wright.

Awesome Lawyer and Staff- Child Custody Case
From the very first meeting with Patrick Wright, I knew I wanted to hire him before I left, and I knew he would represent me very well. Patrick and Amy Neal, his legal assistant, always kept me updated with any changes, so I was never just left wondering what was going on. They also met with me to go over things that I did not understand and incorporated my thoughts mixed with all of their attorney lingo to get accomplished exactly what I wanted. I am so grateful for everything this office did for my family!! I highly recommend Patrick Wright

Best Divorce Attorney/Frisco, Texas
In June of 2015, I found myself filing for a divorce from a man I had been married to for 9 years.... I had no idea who to hire, so I googled attorneys in Frisco... I chose one whose office was convenient, and made my appointment... With much hesitation, I hired a guy, who quickly disappointed me... So I did some serious investigating for a "real" divorce attorney, and found Patrick Wright. What a blessing he was!!! I quickly fired the first guy, huge relief... And Patrick and his amazing Paralegal, Allison, went to work! I'm extremely happy with the outcome and the way they handled my case!! Would definitely recommend The Wright Firm to anyone who wants to hire the best! Real Professionals!!!

Same sex couple division of assets
Patrick Wright was very helpful and inventive in a division of assets between myself and life partner. Basically Patrick helped me divorce my partner in a state in which it was not legal to be married yet. I did not hire Patrick until the first lawyer hired had no idea of what to do. Patrick came highly recommended. Patrick Wright had no hesitation of the case and was very helpful and creative. Would highly recommend Mr Wright and would consult with him again should I need a lawyer again ,but hope I do not need a lawyer again!!

My attorney of choice
Patrick Wright and his team of professionals have done a tremendous job on my case! I was very skeptical about most attorneys. I did not believe they were sincere and compassionate. Patrick did listen and was very sincere. I would definitely recommend Patrick Wright and his team of professionals.

Good but very expensive
Very knowledgeable however will bill you for the slightest contact with his office. I was billed 1/2 hour once for simply asking an aid for a copy of a one page document. He knows his stuff and will work hard for you but just remember to be very careful otherwise your bills will mount quickly.
