Great lawyer, especially custody cases!
William handled my custody case for my daughter.. He was great in front of the Judge and took CPS to task!!! I was very impressed with William's trial skills. I was able to get hold of him by cell and email within a day - maybe a bit longer on weekends. I have recommended him to many of my friends and co-worker.

Exceptional Attorney !!
Both of the partners are very good! They represented me on a custody case - I got custody! - and they did a terrific job!!! I thoroughly enjoyed watching Will in the courtroom, he's REALLY, REALLY good!! I had Mr. Patterson's personal cell number for after hours calls and it came in handy a few times. The fees where more than fair (even if the total amount did sting a bit, I was lower than many others I called. WILL told be he was just passing along his savings for not having a secretary and remaining in his home office. (There previous office was damaged during Hurricane Ike) I would, and I have, recommended Sandel and Patterson to others seeking an attorney!!! Both Will and Partner-Wife René are brilliant, they know the law and how to use it, and they CARE about their clients.

Got the job done for a reasonable price
He worked my costudy case and won it. He did all and hardly bother me except when he needed info to build the case. He also was very reasonable and worked with me to pay him. Thanks to him I have my children!

Doesn’t Care !!!!
Hired this guy several years ago .. I recently found out the work he did for me wasn’t worth the paper it was written on. I reached out to him about the problem . I told him he should fix this screw up free of charge ..He focused on the free of charge. I never heard back from him.. I felt like since he didn’t do it right it the first place and I paid him back then that he should fix it free of charge .. I hired a new lawyer that knew what he was doing and he was able to fix the mess this guy left me with.. If you hire him just be warned his screw ups might come back to bite you in the butt later on …He never even apologized !!!!

Do not bother hiring this lawyer it will be the worse mistake. He is so disrespectful, hateful and lazy, all he is worried about is his money. He can care less about you or your case. He has a heart of stone. I spent so much on him and I regret it.

Extremely unprofessional attorney
He didn't return my phone calls for 10 weeks and didn't return my emails for 5 weeks straight. He kept asking for things that I had already sent him. He is rude when talking to you. And he tried to charge more than what he originally quoted me. Thankfully, he forgot he sent me the original quote via email and I held him to it. He took an already stressful situation and made it so much worse by not staying in contact and, in general, being very unprofessional. Stay clear of Patterson.

Do yourself a favor and do NOT hire this attorney
As my review states this attorney is a very smart attorney,but he is very lazy and really unorganized he will lose your evidence because he has no secretary. he will never return your calls until the day before court then he will submit a bill to you that reflects all of this work that he has been doing but it is a lie because he just starts blowing your phone up the night before your court date. he will take all your money and give you no receipts until you ask 100 times then he will throw one together that will eat all of your retainer and reflect that you owe him a couple grand more.....then he will hound you until you pay him then you will not here from him again until the night before court again he is always unprepaired !

Do NOT hire!!!
Patterson is the WORST attorney we could have possibly hired. He was given an abundant amount of information to assist us in our case and never bothered to read it. There was so much information about the other party that we believe could have won this case but every time we sat down with him he just spoke of money and asked for information already sent multiple times that he never bothered to look at. His excuse was he was working on other "big" cases. If he didn't want to do our case he should not have agreed to it. The case ended in a settlement situation in which he again admitted to not knowing our case information and talked of money. We "lost" and had to settle because after all of our fighting we ended up with a horrible attorney that did nothing to help us. He sure did make sure he got his money from us. Thousands spent for him to not bother reading any countless documents sent. Do NOT hire this attorney! He will waste your money and time.
