Superb abilities and communication
Attorney Reddy has been fantastic from the first day that I spoke with him on the phone. Communicates with the client's best interest in mind. Communicates often and with clear objectives and goals. There are absolutely no negative comments about this attorney that I can make. Everything is positive about his abilities, his mannerisms, his personality, his confidence, everything. I cannot say enough positive things about this attorney!!

responsive, capable, efficient
Patrick Reddy is intelligent, compassionate, and always 2 steps ahead of the opposing legal team. I felt extremely confident under his legal representation. I had spent two years trying to get compensation for my work injury and started to think my case was hopeless. All of this changed when I hired Patrick - he listened carefully, responded quickly, and went aggressively after the insurance company to get my benefits and additional medical coverage. I couldn't be happier with the results!

attention to detail, communication style, and professional thoroughness...
I've worked with Patrick Reddy a number of times and have been very impressed with the quality of representation I've received. His attention to detail, communication style, and professional thoroughness have proven to me the crucial importance of making the right choice when selecting an attorney.

Amazing strategy for workplace injury
Workers often feel powerless against L&I and the insurance companies, but Patrick Reddy is there to take them on! His success with my case dramatically improved my life. Through his research, skillful strategy and brilliant bargaining, he left the Workers’ Compensation system with no choice but to pay my claim and cover additional costs for physical therapy and other medical treatments. If I ever have a workplace injury case or employment dispute again, I won’t hesitate to hire Patrick!

Fast, complete, and accurate.
As soon as I contacted Patrick I felt like my legal matter was back under control. Then before I even had time to check in on his initial progress, he contacted me to let me know everything was taken care of.

Patrick Reddy got better results for me than I expected -- in a very short period of time!!!
Without Patrick Reddy’s hard work and expertise, I never would have gotten my L&I benefits. I had a workplace injury back in 2012, and haven’t been unable to do much lifting since then – which is pretty important in my job. L&I refused to cover a lot of my medical bills or physical therapy costs. The first law firm I hired didn’t make any progress, but as soon as I hired Patrick he got results within days! This law firm was on my case at all hours, they were responsive when I called them, and now I’m finally getting reimbursed for medical bills. I also didn’t expect to get money for addition physical therapy, but Patrick worked that out too. This is my best experience working with an attorney – he really cares AND HE’S GOOD. Can’t ask for more than that!

This Lawyer was excellent!
This Lawyer was excellent! I had the pleasure to work with him and his partner on a personal injury case. I was in a car accident, and they did everything for me.. Then I had a lease problem, he was smart, and showed heart. I got a very low, reasonable rent and a long lease because he did the write up and negotiated for me. I have recommended him at least 25 times in private conversation. Just today I recommended him to someone who was having problems getting a claim from an insurance company. He and Tim Emery are nice guys, but uber professional, and they get the job done. They made me very happy. I tell anyone in business, before you sign a new lease, call these Patrick Reddy. You have a problem with an insurance company, call this guy. Last but not least, I had to go into Chapter 13...four years ago they sent me to an amazing bankruptcy specialist. That guy (who I will review separately) saved my business! I have dealt with other lawyers. This guy and his partner are nicer and smarter than any other.
