Kerrville Felony Case
"I hired Patrick to handle a Felony case in Kerrville (Nov/Dec 2015,) and can, without hesitation, attest to his expertise. Despite long odds, he was able to get the entire case completely dismissed in a timely manner, at a very competitive rate. Despite an undoubtedly heavy workload, Patrick kept in contact and communicated any progress in a timely and personal fashion, and made me feel like a priority. I couldn't have hoped for a more competent attorney. I highly recommend Patrick for any potential legal matter you might have pending. “

Hit a deer, insurance issue
To whom it may concern; It's easy to take time and hate, it takes effort to reward and applaud good service. Patrick deserves this mention. I am new in town and had insurance from two states for a 48 hour overlap period to be legal. I hit a deer on the way to the airport in that 48 hours! I had to file the two claims to be covered( is that illegal or legal?) and knew I would get nowhere fast. I simply looked up the best rated attorney and placed my bet. I wasnt looking for injury stuff, I wasn't hurt and don't work systems. I just wanted get rid of the nightmare and into a vehicle quick. Patrick easily solved my issue. When I questioned the exit strategy of the insurance co., Patrick did some sniffing and found I was correct and fixed it at no extra charge other than stated on day one. He is prompt, well dressed for business and is eager to solve issues I feel. I hope you all have as much luck from his hard work as I did. Regards, Darrell

Excellent results
We were happy with the plan that was put together and the execution of the plan. It's nice that we had input into a solution. I would recommend Patrick as a criminal defense attorney.
