I love being a criminal defense attorney.  I love the words "Not Guilty" and "Case Dismissed".  Nothing is more pleasing than to see my clients' faces when they hear those words.

I grew up in San Luis Obispo County.  I believe this has helped me be a successful trial attorney.  I know how to effectively communicate with our community's jurors.  I've tried some difficult cases and won.  I believe I won, in large part, because I know how to communicate with our jurors.

My trial success has helped in achieving exceptional results for my clients without going to trial.  I am always sensative to the fact that trial is extremely stressful for my clients.  This is why I always put forth maximum effort to resolve my cases prior to trial.  Trial scares many cirminal defense attorneys.  The District Attorneys know which attorneys are too scared to take a case to trial and which attorneys are not.  The attorneys who are known to take cases to trial and win end up getting better results without going to trial. 

It has been a privilege to help so many people in our community through tough times.  It has been a joy to see my clients better off at the end of the case than they were at the beginning.  I represent a lot of good people and I have developed a lot of relationships with my clients that I am sure will last a lifetime.  I aim to develop many more lifelong relationships helping my clients in this wonderful community.

Case dismissed
Patrick was very responsive and ended up getting my case dismissed. Would absolutely recommend his services to anyone in need of a lawyer in San Luis Obispo.

Most qualified counsel! Leader and respected in the courtroom.
I came to Patrick Fisher after my first two attorneys just weren't getting the job done. After a lot of hard work, Patrick was able to get my entire case dismissed. This was a huge deal to me because the charges I was facing were very serious and completely false. I am thankful for all the work he did on my behalf. I would highly recommend retaining Patrick Fisher if you or anyone you care about is facing criminal charges.

Honesty & Integrity
The best Attorney I have ever worked with! He promised to do his best to have the case against me dismissed and came through on that promise. Patrick brought me through the darkest time in my life. I would recommend him to anyone.

Fisher Law
The team at Fisher Law Office has been stellar in handling my case in San Luis Obispo. From the moment that their office took my case, I knew that I was in good hands. They kept me informed on all aspects of my case and were always top of any situation that the DA threw out there. Their legal knowledge is top notch and I would not hesitate to hire them again for any situation. In times of great distress, Patrick and David took great strides in helping us cope with the issues and ultimately prevailed in court for us.

An easy choice.
When we dicided to grow MMJ for a family member in need, our family attourney referred us Patrick Fisher for advice. with all of the new and changing laws, it was refreshing to finally know exactly where we stood legally. While we decided not to pursue MMJ growing, another family member did and now has as fully compliant a MMJ grow as the current laws allow. Thanks Patrick!

Exceptional Attorney
Mr. Fisher has by far given me the best representation. He has given me the opportunity to succeed in life, by representing me in such a way that the judge is now willing to give me a second chance. Though I had not followed through with my first chance to change my behaviors (the first alternative sentencing they gave me), he was able to convince the courts that I deserved another shot at it. He was able to find a way for me to live my life outside of jail. I am very thankful to have Mr. Fisher as my attorney, because now I am able to hold down a job and finish my college education, two things I wouldn't have even thought were possible a few years ago.

I had occasion to hire Patrick for some family legal issues that were difficult for me. He was referred through a family friend, and he was capable and understandable and caring. I appreciated his help during a hard time, I would highly recommend him.

He stepped in and handled things when his dad had a surgery
Since I'm in Washington, DC, this was an e-mail relationship, using the Fisher Law Office to clean up a file. There was a time crunch. Something from an old San Luis Obispo case showed up on the FBI report which was provided to the IRS. Since I'm an accountant who must maintain a clean profile for the IRS, this was critical. Patrick was fabulous. I was nervous, since his promise to step in and handle this while his dad recovered was all I had. Patrick is dependable. He handled things -- and it was a three-step process -- with each step handled as soon as documents and court dates permitted. Patrick does what he says he will do.

I have been represented by Fisher Law since Patrick worked after school for his father David. He has not only studied the law he has lived it. Patrick's addition to the firm adds the dynamic of today's generation. His dedication to his clients is ever present and without question. Your encounters with jurisprudence will only be made better represented by Patrick Fisher.
