Outstanding attorney
Patrik Griego and his team were a wonderful asset to me during a very stressful time. Patrik met with me and during the consultation I decided to hire him based on his expertise, thorough explanations, and his confidence in fighting my case. He even agreed to represent me during a government agency interview (not his typical area of specialization) which was extremely nerve wracking for me. Having Patrik there, made me feel at ease. I was contemplating hiring an additional attorney who specializes in another part of law, but Patrik helped me with that as well. All of my issues have been resolved better than I had anticipated. Patrik is approachable, kind, intelligent, and has connections and relationships within the court system that are invaluable.

Professional with great results
I couldn’t be happier with my experience having Patrik represent me. From the initial consultation, until the resolution of the case, he was always available to answer any questions promptly. His plan for my defense was clearly laid out and communicated to me efficiently. The professional manner in which Patrik conducted himself tremendously helped to ease the stress of the situation. Knowing he was in my corner made all the difference!

First interaction with any attorney and couldn't be happier. Patrik was kind enough to assist with an unemployment issue and the outcome was successful. Would not hesitate to hire him again.

Pleased Patron, concerned citizen
Patrik has done me solid EVERYTIME I've gone to him, hired or consulted. No BS, just solid. And with things others told me they couldn't help with, or choose not to because they seemed menial. I would recommend him for anything he's willing to take, and he's honest enough to let you know if he can't help. Solid.

Great experience
We worked with Patrik for a DUI. When it was eligible for expungement years later, we reached out to his office and were quickly and easily ushered through the process. So glad to work with this excellent lawyer and his phenomenal staff from start to finish.

Criminal defense
Patrik and his office made the whole court experience comfortable and easy. I actually never even had to be present for the hearings which helped my nerves quite a bit, especially because I felt like I was in good hands. Everything unfolded as it was explained to me and the response to any questions or need for further understanding was met immediately. Patrik Griego is very professional, gracefully experienced and easy tempered. I’d recommend him to anyone!

DUI violation
I and very happy with the outcome to my case. It was due to the skill and experience of Mr. Griego in negotiating an favorable plea. He kept me well informed throughout the ten month process and inspired confidence in my defense. I felt this after the first consultation. Mr Griego and assistant Christy are personable and professional.

Best pick!
Patrik and staffer Connie both exhibited a high level of expertise in the field of personal injury and professionalism from the beginning of my case up until the end.

Bryan Gaynor Attorney at Law
I have been a practicing attorney in Northern California for over 50-years and I practice in both state and federal courts. During my many years of practice I have rarely met an attorney with the skill and competence of Mr. Griego. His practice spans wide areas of both criminal and civil law. Recently, I was involved in a civil case and needed a complaint drafted expeditiously that I did not have the time to draft. I contacted Mr. Griego who produced the complaint I needed within a matter of a few days. It included 6 separate causes of action. The complaint has been filed and the matter will proceed either to trial or it will be settled by the parties. Mr. Griego is a partner is a firm whose members are also highly qualified attorneys who are available to assist him in litigation and other matters. In choosing Mr. Griego to be your attorney in any civil or criminal matter your can be confident both of his skill level and that of the other members of his firm who will support him in handling your case.

Responsive, Professional and Valuable!
Patrik helped me clear a decades-old mistake off my record. It wasn't an easy task because of the details of the sentencing but Patrik stuck with me and together we fixed my record so that I can move forward in my nursing career. Throughout the process Patrik was always very quick to respond to my emails. His hard work and diligence led to a favorable outcome in my case. I felt like I got so much more value from him than the amount I paid! Who walks away from an attorney-client relationship thinking that?!! Well, I did! Thank you Patrik!

DUI
I was charged with a DUI and Mr. Griego provided evidence to drop it to a lesser charge. He continued to help me when I failed to attend my assigned classes. His staff was also very attentive and helpful.

Ease of mind
I really appreciate Patrik and Lesa for their professional way of handling my case. Patrik's ability to clearly explain the law and the options to move forward was very much appreciated. Sometimes you put yourself in a tough spot and other times didn't and need good representation, either way I would highly recommend Mr. Griego to any of friends.

2nd to NONE!
Patrik is a superstar! He is very professional, cool, calm and collected, insightful, stategic and very articulate. He kept me up to date on everything going on in my case and provided a clear path forward to meet my goals. As I said in the title, he is second to none.

Top-Notch Professional!
I had never before needed an attorney's services and was apprehensive about meeting with Patrik. (We've all heard the bad lawyer jokes, right?) I was immediately set at ease by Patrik's calm, quiet professionalism. He used language I could understand. He patiently explained all aspects of what I was facing and how we would work through those issues. I was kept abreast of every aspect of the legal proceedings and felt confident of his ability to successfully resolve the matters at hand ... which he did with exceptional skill, hard work, politeness and professionalism throughout our relationship. I've already recommended him to several friends, and heartily recommend Patrik to anyone in need of an excellent attorney.
