The lawyers lawyer
I practice family law but when I needed a divorce I turned to Patton. He is knowledgeable and he gave my case the personal attention it needed. I have also referred family to Patton for their legal needs. He takes care of his clients.

Business lawyer
I know that Patton Maynard advertises as a divorce, child support lawyer, but I went to him for my will. While I was there, I told him that I was starting a new business. He was VERY helpful and gave me advice that I was TOTALLY ignorant of. He helped me set up my L.L.C. and draw up a new contract. Money well spent. Highly recommend. Sara.L

Looking for an Attorney to be totally upfront with you?...This is Your Guy!
I am a retired Army SFC and Patton was my Attorney during my Divorce. He gave me sound advice and worked through a complicated Quadro ( Division of military retirement assets) We didn't go to trial but he worked through a very difficult mediation. I was billed hourly at fair rate. He worked quickly and efficiently and actually did such a good job that he avoided several hours of work (that he could have made money on). There are only two attorneys I would trust with my affairs and Patton is the primary.

Assertive, straight shooter
Patton was amazing w/ my divorce. He doesn't pull his punches or hold your hand - he does what you pay him to do. He's a straight shooter - honest and forthcoming. He doesn't waste anyone's time or money. He was assertive with my ex and his lawyer, and always had my best interest at heart. He knew I didn't have much money, but he also knew I was in the right. He was able to meet both of my needs w/o sacrificing integrity. I would gladly go to him again, should the need arise.

He will fight for you
Patton Maynard was extremely helpful in my divorce. Going through such a rough time I did not know what the right decisions where going to be regarding my family. Patton was sincere, helpful, and realistic in my options for the future. The fees I was charged were very reasonable considering all the work his office did. I was very happy with the outcome and highly recommend him to new clients. Will defiantly return with any other legal issues!

Very experienced....not his first rodeo
Mr Patton Maynard served me very well through my divorce. He advised to be calm and to take our time, both very hard things to do in such a stressful situation. In the end I'm very thankful he handled my divorce and feel he had my back the entire time.

You wont find a better lawyer than Patton Maynard
Patton represented me during a nasty divorce. He got me everything I wanted and his staff was exceptional. I could not have been better represented. Patton fought for me and my children as if we were his own family. A few years later, I had to take my ex back to court and, of course, I used Patton. Once again, he made sure that my kids and I were his first priority and he made sure we were taken care of. Patton Maynard is an exceptional attorney that I have recommended time and time again. I will continue to use and recommend Patton. Not only was he knowledgeable in Family Law, he is also very knowledgeable in Real Estate Law. He is a power house attorney and an exceptional person.

ONE WORD SUMS HIM UP - "EXCELLENT" Patton handled my contested divorce/custody/child support case with the greatest of ease. He maneuvered my case in such a way to get me more than I ever thought I was entitled to and most importantly he won me custody of my children. I do not believe my husband's attorney ever had a chance. Patton's staff is very helpful and knowledgable. To all that read this review , you MUST visit with Patton before you hire a family law attorney.

Murphree12 - VERY PLEASED
At one time or another, over the years, I have employed both Patton Maynard or Creighton Maynard to represent me and I have been EXTREMELY satisfied each time with their representation. People should remember that Attorneys have to deal with the facts brought to them by the client and sometime the Attorney can only do so much, given the facts. The Maynards have handled cases for me over the years where I ended up on top and where they effectively minimized my losses, due to the facts. I would GLADLY recommend both Patton Maynard and Creighton Maynard to anyone looking for a hard working straight forward attorneys.

GREAT!!!! TOP-NOTCH !!! Attorney - Got me MORE than expected
Very agressive and worth much more that what I paid. Doesn't back down. Great staff and straight forward. Very clear with his advice. Regarding the prior review by Jason, he must be an a real idiot. His comments are completely opposite of the representation I and my friends received. Great attorney.
Posted by ED | February 11, 2011
Will always give his clients his professional opinion, even if it is not always something that the client wants to hear. If you want an attorney who handles their cases efficiently and with the and upmost professionalism, he is the person for you. I would readily recommend him to any person in need of legal representation and have.

One word sums up this Lawyer - Useless
I used this so called lawyer a few years back. The old saying rings true - you get what you pay for. In my case, my ex hired a $10K Lawyer and I hired a $3K lawyer (Maynard) - my cheapo lawyer quit and fired me after he found out who he was up against. Proof is in the pudding.
