Experienced Lawyer
Ms. Patricia and staff were very professional and knowledgeable. Handled my separation and divorce with the upmost professionalism. Worked with a repayment plan and were always available when questioned arised. Very satisfied with their work attention to detail and would definetly utilize her service if ever needed again.

Extremely knowledgeable
Patricia is a very dedicated individual who did not hesitate to accept my case when I was pulled over for a DUI. It was my first and only offence on my record and without her efforts and backing I know my sentence would have been more severe.. While my family and I were panic mode due to my situation, Patricia kept us calm and collected by explaining immediately what steps I should take to work towards reducing my sentence. Would highly recommend her to all my family and friends!!

Helped disabled vet
When I filed, my Ex ran to TESSA and falsely claimed domestic violence and child abuse. Ms Perello handled my case with utmost care, going far beyond what she had to do to make it right. I'm in debt to her far more than money could repay.

Excellent lawyer
Patty truly cares about her clients. She works hard to make sure they get a great outcome. She is diligent and trustworthy. She has worked as an attorney for over 24 years and still bends over backwards for her clients.

Seriously disorganized
Nice people. Seriously disorganized office. Sketchy billing practices. Found office billing with other clients names in my information. I switched to another law firm.

Not worth the money I have paid
I had a horrible experience with this lawyer and I was not the only one. My best friend hired her to help with a divorce. My friends' husband disappeared for over 5 years and showed up after he found out that he could make a profit since their house gained value. He only paid $ 2000 for a lawyer and received 50% of all assets after being gone and not paying any bills for over 5 years. My friend got the same 50% and paid Patricia 3 times more. I hired her and never went to her office to discuss my case. She filed my divorce forms online which cost little fees but she charged thousands of dollars for a phone call. She does not care about her clients. I fired her and had to pay a high charge to get rid of her services. She is extremely unprofessional.

used to be a good attorney, but not-so-much in the last few years
You'll notice that her ratings have only gone downhill in the more recent years, and this is not a coincidence. She worked on a case for my father-in-law back in 2015 and was exceptional in the courtroom. Based on her past performance, I used her for my child custody support hearing in 2020 and a landlord dispute around the same time, and she was nowhere near the same level of prepaid or willing to argue my points in the courtroom (I honestly think she didn't prepare until the morning of and it showed). She just didn't have any fight in her and was more interested in compromises even in the face of significant evidence in my favor. She will not look at your case until the day of court and still ask you questions that you clearly explained to her in email and other communications that she can reread. Oh, but don't worry, she will charge you for everything you send her, even though she clearly won't even read it during that time. In my child custody hearing the day before court, she asked me to send her all the relevant messages between me and my ex. I already sent them a month prior, and I highlighted the details I thought were important. I was charged for emailing her the month prior because it is "communication," then I got charged again for the same when I resent her the same emails. After hiring this attorney, I am almost $10,000 in debt, and she gave my ex everything her attorney asked for in court and did not (DID NOT!) put up any fight or present my side. I left the courtroom feeling like my side was completely unheard. I was just shocked by the whole thing and found it unbelievable. For how much she charges, you can find a better attorney.

Toxic lawyer stay away
She is a nightmare, she is an alcoholic who is incompetent and plays ball with the opposing attorneys. She will not have your interest in mind only billing you as much as possible. I had to fire her and file a complaint with the Colorado attorneys board. She sat on my case till the last minute which made it impossible for an applet level attorney to enter to fix what she let go because of her personal bias against me. It resulted in me losing custody of my children. She shouldn't have licensure to practice. Stay far away
