You can spend a little bit of money up-front to get the judgement you want or you can find yourself paying for your decision the rest of your life.
If you want the job done and done right then you need to get Patrick on your team. He is tenacious and has established an excellent reputation in the Pasadena courthouse. Results are always tied to relationships and connections. Patrick and his team deliver results.
After a 32 year marriage, I walked away keeping 100% of my pension, paid no spousal support, and we paid our own attorney fees despite that fact that my ex refused to work.
Patrick was conscientious about expenses and did not try to run the bill up as many attorneys do. If you are in a position where you are going to need to go to court to get a judgement, then you want Patrick standing there beside you. Anything less and you risk a judgement that could have significant monetary implications the rest of your life.
SERIOUSLY... YOU WANT PATRICK ON YOUR SIDE. If you decide to not use Patrick for some reason, at least do a consultation with him first so you don't find him representing the other side.

Patrick is a first rate, first class attorney. He provides excellent service, quick and effective work, superior advice and overall handling of the case. He made me feel like his top priority at all times. He handled my case with the sensitivity, professionalism and effectiveness I desired at all times.
