Patrick Owen Earl

About me

Picture 1:  This is my Mother and 4 brothers.  Not pictured is my Dad, Ken (deceased), oldest sister Tami (deceased) and another sister Johnna (N/A that day).  We all lived here in Moses Lake, WA for years. L to R  Thomas, Douglas, LuDeen, David, Jeffrey and Me-Patrick.


Picture 2:  My wife and 5 kids. L-R front: Riley and Dylan, back: Cassidy, McKayla, Me, Lori (beautiful wife) and Jordan.  


Picture 3:  Family a few years ago.


I love to watch and play sports.  I played HS basketball and football. Church league softball and city.  Was honored to play football at BYU from '84 - '86. 


I am an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and so is my wife and kids.  We love to spend time together and to prove that we took a 8500 mile road trip this summer in an RV.  We drove from Moses Lake, WA to New Jersey and back in 15 days.  Saw Mt. Rushmore, hometown of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Downtown Chicago, New York City-Manhattan (2 Broadway plays), Niagra Falls, NY, Palmyra, NY, Kirtland, OH, Nauvoo, IL and Winter Quarters, NB.  We had 7 - 8 people in the RV and love every minute of it.

  • Carl A Munson JR

    I endorse Patrick Owen Earl happily. I have been observing Patrick through Avvo and can easily say I endorse him. Just look at his answers to the questions posted here and you can see he is very knowledgeable and takes the time to really answer the questions. He doesn't just give a one-liner, standard, unhelpful answer. You can see how many attorneys agree with his answers. If he takes that much care to answer a stranger's question, think how he'll take care of you.

    I endorse Pat Earl's work. From my experience and observation, he routinely handles difficult cases with professionalism and care. You would be hard pressed to find a member of the Grant County criminal defense bar who has handled more cases than Pat Earl.
