Approachable, Down-to-Earth
At our initial meeting, Patricia insisted that I address her by her first name -- this immediately put me at ease and signaled to me that she was NOT an attorney with the W.C. Fields attitude -- "Go away, son, ya 'botha' me!" She was amicable and approachable, yet retained a business-like, professional decorum. My particular case was handled to my complete satisfaction, and I could not have been more pleased. Thanks so much, Patricia!
