My LLC Consultation experience with Patric
In a 15 minute conversation, Patrick was able to expertly, concisely, and clearly communicate to me what my wife and I need to do to prevent risking personal assets when standing up and operating an LLC. Additionally, Patrick was also able to detail the likely circumstances under which other entities would attempt to seek personal assets when seeking claims against an LLC. I would definitely seek out Patrick again for any business-related concerns. Thanks Patrick !!

2 Year Lawsuit
My case involved me working with a business partner with whom I had a verbal contract. I was to exchange work for a percentage of a company we would start together. As Founders, we made many sacrifices to get the company off the ground and make it successful. When I later demanded my shares in writing, my partner made excuses until finally severing the relationship and exploiting my failure to get a written contract in place. Mr. Paschall took the time to fully understand my complicated position and presented several options that I did not know were available. In short, I didn't know my rights. He quickly got the company to relinquish back pay I was owed, but they did not want to give me my shares. I filed a lawsuit with Mr. Paschall as my representation. Our claim included: 1. UNFAIR BUSINESS PRACTICES 2. NONPAYMENT OF MINIMUM WAGE 3. FAILURE TO PAY WAGES WHEN DUE 4. FAILURE TO PROVIDE ACCURATE ITEMIZED WAGE STATEMENTS 5. WRONGFUL TERMINATION IN VIOLATION OF PUBLIC POLICY 6. INTENTIONAL MISREPRESENTATION 7. FALSE PROMISE 8. CONCEALMENT 9. NEGLIGENT MISREPRESENTATION 10. CONVERSION 11. BREACH OF CONTRACT 12. BREACH OF FIDUCIARY DUTY 13. PROMISSORY ESTOPPEL 14. ACCOUNTING For 2 years my x-partner tried to spend me out of court and get me to quit. Mr. Paschall handled their tact wisely and with authority. He kept on top of them every step of the way and applied pressure when it matter most. After taking depositions, and with our court date closing in, the defendants knew they were outclassed. Mr. Paschall negotiated a complete buyout as a settlement. The company claimed they couldn't afford to buy me out, and their numbers showed it. In response, Patrick structured my settlement to be payed out over time and secured by a stipulation of judgement, against not only the company, but also the individual. I've begun to receive my payments on time, and consider this a win. If you have any business law or labor law claims and you'd like to know your rights, Patrick is your man. His communication skills, knowledge, and passion make him one of San Diego's best lawyers.

My professional experience with Mr. Paschall
As a small business owner, I have dealt with many attorneys over the years, and Mr. Paschall was a breath of fresh air. He is the genuine article: persuasive, responsive, able to communicate his ideas to others. I wish I would have found Mr. Paschall earlier because it probably would have saved me plenty of time, money and stress. Mr. Paschall is an outstanding attorney and a take-charge person.

Consummate professional
Mr. Paschall is the consummate professional. He is as attentive and responsive as any attorney I have worked with, and he was able to obtain great results for me. I am very thankful that I retained his services when I needed an attorney, and you will too should the need arise.

Fantastic Attorney!!!
Patrick did a fantastic job and was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process. All the advice he provided was in my best interest and unlike any other attorney I have dealt with in the past I always felt he was providing solid legal advice rather then trying to sell me on something. He was always quick to return calls. Hands down the best! If I ever need an attorney again I plan to call him first. Thank you so much for all of your help.

Breach of Contract And Fraud
A company I helped to create became successful and squeezed me out. I was without a contract or a shareholders agreement. Mr. Paschall carefully reviewed my case and acted fast. Having him by my side, protecting my rights, and defending my case has given me a peace of mind. He was predictably responsive and professional. His communications against the opposing party were thorough and specifically cited the law. I was very happy with my experience, I would have lost everything without him. If you're looking for a great business attorney, you found one.

Had a bad experience with attorneys more interested in making a fast buck rather than an honest dollar?
I have been working with Dodger as a client on some very important matters involving local and national cases. In each case, the results was almost immediate and I got what I wanted. He is a fighter and has high ethics and integrity, unlike many attorneys I've hired in the past. If you have had a bad experiences and unfavorable results from attorneys who are more interested in making a fast buck father than an honest dollar, I highly recommend you contact Patrick Dodger Paschall.
