Above and beyond
They were absolutely phenomenal, my go-to guy was Mr.John Shaw; when I couldn't get a hold of him, Miss Kelsi would always be more than willing to help. My divorce case was extremely complicated, however in my initial interview with Mr. Shaw I explained the situation and he assured me that he had it covered. I briefed him on what I would like done with the case before he came on board, and when he took the case he did not waste any time. He got everything handled that I wanted handled in not only a timely fashion, but he went above and beyond to accomplish exactly what I asked for. He made it happen, even though it was a complicated case. I am an out of stater, so everything was dealt with over the phone. It was very important that there was a good line of communication, and I am not disappointed. Him and his team took very good care of me, if I am ever in Temple Texas I will definitely drop by just so I can meet these phenomenal people. You will not be disappointed if you bring them on your team for legal matters. Thank you for everything, and I wish you guys success in all you do.

Client
Mr. Shaw was professional and engaged. He guided our case to a great settlement, despite the impact COVID-19 had on the court system. He kept us informed and his advice and advocacy were outstanding. Highly recommend him to anyone who has been in an auto accident.

Excellent Attorney!
When you find yourself in an accident that was not your fault, you go through a variety of emotions. John was there to guide me through the legal process with compassion. John was knowledgeable and helpful, he was quick to inform me about updates and advocated for me to get the best settlement possible. John will not back down, and knows the law when it comes to your rights. I would highly recommend him!

The best law group
I have never hired a lawyer before and was nervous but John walked me through the process along with some of his Co workers. They kept me updated with every single detail and things to do. I could contact them at anytime and they'd be happy to help out. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Patterson law group!

Very professional, very prompt resolution
Mr. Shaw handled a matter for me in which an auto repair facility refused to reimburse me for additional expenses incurred when their original repair proved faulty. Without being overly verbose, the subsequent repair appeared unrelated to the work performed by the first shop, so in the interest of mitigating damages, I took my vehicle to a second shop much nearer to my home. After diagnosis from the second facility, it was determined that the repair was indeed related to work performed by the first shop. I presented the bill and they refused any compensation whatsoever. Mr. Shaw sent a demand letter outlining my the nature of my complaint, as well as what it would take to resolve the matter to my satisfaction. Within two weeks of the mailing of that letter, the shop reimbursed me in full and I was not required to pursue the matter any further. The service I received was professional, timely, and obviously highly effective.
