Proactive, kind, honest
Sean is honest, kind and proactive – he lifted such a huge weight and worry off my shoulders. I felt backed into a corner, trying to defend my daughter and I by getting a restraining order on my own. I was naïve to the court process and thought I could do it on my own. He jumped in right away and helped me to see the situation differently to release the upset and worry. He worked with the other side to put out the fire rather than inflame it to run up his own fees. Sean’s integrity shines and I have to say…. How empowering to hear the other attorney squirm when she recognized his name!

I was prepared to write a good review for Sean Patrick because I could sense from the get-go that he is refreshingly honest and well intentioned but I was not prepared to write such a phenomenal review. I was truly blown away by his performance in the courtroom. Sean was retained very late in the game and a continuance was unfortunately denied but he did not appear to be any less prepared than he would have been otherwise. He was also not up against just one attorney but two on the other side, one of whom I understand has a 60 page resume and is "the best of the best" in what he does. Despite such impressive and intimidating representation from the other party, Sean held a perfectly calm assertiveness and nailed every point on its head to an extent that I honestly just did not expect. The other two attornies together probably cost 3 times what Sean cost yet I did not at any time feel that reflected in the trial. Quite the contrary, actually. I share this as a token to Sean for his great work but more importantly because I feel that people need to know who they can trust in the game of retaining attornies. Sean really is one of the "good guys, " which is unfortunately more few and far between than I would like to believe. If you didn't know this already, know it now: it is so incredibly important to walk into any attorney-client relationship with eyes wide open because (let's be honest) there is just so much senseless corruption and dishonesty that tends to be involved. After having been through the whole process with him I can genuinely say that Sean can be trusted. There were opportunities to where he could have taken advantage of the situation and claimed that he was owed more money than he was or created more unnecessary work for himself but he did not. It is refreshing to know that attornies like Sean exist. He is a great choice and absolutely first recommendation on my list.

Having confidence that my children will be protected and provided for is worth more than words can express.
At the beginning of my legal situation, I was representing myself and went between feeling unsure to fairly confident. This was up until the time when my husband hired a lawyer. I felt completely overwhelmed and actually afraid. Too much was at stake. I knew I was no longer qualified to provide for and protect my children in the court setting. Additionally, I felt completely lost as how to find a lawyer whom I would feel confident in and that could and would help us. Fortunately, a friend of mine had used Mr. Patrick's services and recommended him to me. After meeting with him, I knew he would help protect my children. Mr. Patrick has helped me to feel safe again. I am excited to one day post that all the legal matters are behind me and how Mr. Patrick assisted me and my family in "reaching the other side". To review his services so far, I can honestly say that I have been very pleased with the services and accessibility that Mr. Patrick has provided for and to me and my family.

The Dedicated Peoples Advocate
Sean has worked with me now these past two years on various legal matters. I wish I knew of Sean and his practice many years before. I have total faith and confidence in the lawyer and the man Sean is. He was always responsible when handling my matters, if he isn't experienced in certain area he is willing to tell you so. However he will take the time to learn about what he is helping you with, and is always eager to learn what he needs to know to perform his duties, He always answered when I called if he didn't I had confidence my question would get eventually handled . His fees are very reasonable and sometimes joke with him are you kidding me .Great since of humor , and always willing to help make you laugh during serious legal matters. He is very blunt but tactful. I would definitely call him the dedicated peoples' advocate.

Professional and courteous
Sean helped me handle a complex but personal case. He is without a doubt one of the the most professional, and courteous attorneys I have ever met. He and his staff worked hard to earn my trust, and were aggressive when the chips were down. I offer my highest recommendation to Sean Patrick.

If you need an excellent attorney, this is your guy!
I hired Mr. Patrick to represent me in two separate cases. He is awesome. He made sure to explain things to me, worked hard, and really knows his stuff. If you need an attorney you should hire Mr. Patrick.

Hardworking and compassionate
Mr. Patrick represented me in a very emotional case involving my late wife. He quickly understood the complex case, and worked aggressively to represent me and my family. I really felt like he went out of his way to make sure that we were informed and understood the process. I really appreciated his openness and willingness to listen. I thought he did a great job.

Lawyer review
I found that the firm Sean patrick worked with and Sean particularly were very knowlegable and bent over backwards to help us. We could contact them 24/7 if need be with questions and concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend his firm to anyone else and would use them again if needed.

Attentive, Professional, and Trustworthy
I became familiar with Sean while he was working as a certified law clerk. He was always very responsive, and helped keep me informed of the progress of my case. As an attorney, I have the utmost confidence in Sean. He continues to maintain a high level of professionalism, goes out of his way to assist his clients, and always ensures that I stay informed about my case. I trust Sean completely, and I would recommend him without hesitation.
