Couldn't have asked for more
We all know the stereotypes that are put on lawyers. This stereotype has been a far cry to my personal experience working with Pat. Although my situation was a very long process, he and his staff kept me as up to date as possible. I found myself telling him that I trust him to do what's best and not having had to worry about it. They took care of everything and all I had to do was hand them the daunting pile of bills, info, medical records, etc. and they took care of everything for me. From beginning to end (in total about 15 months), I never once had to worry about a thing. I could not have gotten through this time in my life without him and his wonderful assistant Dawn.

Patrick was helpful with my personal injury case and always on top of it. It was a faster process than what I thought and I would definitely use him again in the future for any legal service I need.

Great First Experience w/ a lawyer
Mr. Mahoney and his staff were very thorough with our case. They kept us informed of what was going on. Met w/ us to go over what they had done and what they would be doing. They explained things to us easily so we could understand. Gave us good advice but let us determine what we would do. We have never needed to use a lawyer before but w/ Mr. Mahoney and his staff we felt confident we could trust them and we're happy we did. They did a great job. Thank you so much Mahoney and Staff.
