Excellent Professional
Patrick Haywood was a pleasure to work with. He put forth tremendous effort on my case and reached a favorable settlement on our behalf! I would recommend him to anyone who is nervous about the legal process. His communication is exceptional and he is invested to his clients. I could not thank him enough for his hard work he put forth for my family!

A happy ending
Imagine my shock after a one small accident landed me in the midst of a substantial lawsuit. I had no experience with anything of the kind when I was served with papers. Scared, stressed, alone and ignorant of any means to help myself out of the situation. I knew I needed help and I got it with Mr. Harwood. From our first phone call my fears were put to rest. He was knowledgeable about the law and more importantly, my own personal case. I am a single mom and cannot express the gratitude I felt after talking to Mr. Harwood. I had someone on my side who cared about helping me. He cared that I was scared and listened to all my concerns and addressing each one. He was honest with me about the factors in my case even when they weren't beneficial to my side of the case. He allowed me to see exactly how the land lay and how we were going to go about defending it. He was very thorough about sending me all the necessary documents I needed to stay informed and up to date. I wasn't just dealing with secretaries and paralegals, I talked to him personally and at length several times. He also assured me numerous times that I could call at any time for any reason. To put it plainly, he had my back and showed genuine concern for me. He made me feel like I was an important client to him but maybe that is how all his clients feel. Either way it's a good thing! I would highly recommend Pat Harwood to anyone who is lost and alone in a sea of legal jiggery-pokery. He will help you find your way back to shore!

Sheri's Accident
From the very beginning of the process, Pat was knowledgeable, informative, and supportive. As the case progressed, he kept me informed of all changes as they occurred. He always let us know that we were the ones in charge, and his job was to do his best job as "Captain" of the ship. He helped us to remain patient throughout the case, enabling us to receive the best settlement possible.
