Since 2007 attorney Patrick J. Galloway has been serving clients in Eastern Washington and beyond. Prior to forming Advance Legal Services, Patrick worked at Kerr Law Group in Kennewick, WA where he provided a variety of businesses, government entities, charities and individuals with legal representation and consultative services. Patrick handled legal matters involving estates and probates, contract negotiation and drafting, LLC formations, risk management, regulatory compliance, State and Federal Court litigation, administrative appeals, business sales, personnel issues, land use, real estate, and more.

 

Patrick prefers to focus his practice on proactive legal solutions like LLC formations, contract preparation, and helping families execute Wills and Powers of Attorney. However, he has recently been recognized for work on public records and disclosure, guest lecturing atthe Association of Washington Cities' conferences in Olympia and Kennewick, and successfully defending the City of Pasco in Franklin County Superior Court against allegations that City leaders had violated Chapter 42.56 RCW (the Public Records Act). Click here to view the Tri-City Herald report on the case.

 

With this broad background Patrick is ready to assist your business, agency, charity or family with a wide range of legal issues. Advance Legal Services was formed with a mission to achieve efficient cost-effective solutions. Contact Attorney Patrick J.

This review is from a person who hired this attorney.

Effective Attorney and a Gentleman
Patrick is calm friendly, smart and a gentleman. He hires the same - and their firm brought excellent results. We won, and the praise the judge heaped on Patrick's colleague Russell Mikow reflects well on Patrick. What started out sad and distressing ended up like the scene "No prisoners" scene from Lawrence of Arabia where O'Toole and Sharif charge into battle. My dad would have liked these two gentlemen! Winston Churchill said "Nothing is as exhilarating as to be shot at with no results!

Excellent attorney
Patrick was wonderful to work with. He spent extra time with me getting to understand my unique circumstances (being divorced with several children) and how it would affect my will, etc. I appreciated his kind demeanor and the time he spent with me. I never felt rushed or that he was watching the clock like other attorneys that just care about getting every dime out of you. He helped me with other matters without charge because he genuinely cares about every client. Thank you Patrick and staff!

Land Purchase Agreement
Patrick sought out my needs in helping to set up a purchase agreement for property I was purchasing from a relative. He was insightful of the sensitive issues that can arise in these situations as well as mindful of the needed details to ensure a low risk transaction for me.

Land Purchase Contract
Patrick's ability to capture my vision of how a land purchase from a distant relative should occur without disrupting that relationship made the transaction successful. I feel we included the details needed to minimize my potential risks. You will appreciate his straight forward approach and clarity throughout your business or legal transaction.

Good attorney, not an oxymoron...
Patrick guided us through planning and executing estate and probate after my parents death. He also created a custom family trust for us. A recalcitrant and difficult neighbor prompted our again seeking Patrick's council and legal expertise in resolving neighbor's attempts to retaliate and financially entangle us with frivolous complaint and accusations. Patrick is up to the task. We highly recommend.
