I can't say enough good things about Mr. Patton. I was referred to him by a friend whose messy divorce spanned several law offices and $$$$ before reaching his desk for closure in her favor.
At the time when my ex-husband tried to end my alimony, prior to calling Mr. Patton, I contacted many different attorneys. But, none of them were able to put me at ease with the issue at hand. However, a visit to Mr. Patton's office changed everything for me. He was able to quickly evaluate my case and give me a sound legal advice. He handled my case personally, with qualified assistants providing excellent support. He doesn't pound his fist nor raise his voice like those so called "aggressive lawyers". But make no mistake, his soft-spoken, calm demeanor shouldn't be underestimated. He is TOUGH. His expertise stems not only from his grasp and understanding of complex and difficult family issues, but from his thorough preparation and attention to detail.
His exceptional legal skills and professional experience provided me with the most effective representation that one could only dream of.
In court, no one does it like him. He won my case. I highly recommend him.
