Nursing home abuse

Intrigued by her phenomenal memory
I had the pleasure of having Ms. Fitzpatrick on a case that was being handled at Jacobs Fuchsberg, and what amazed me the most about her, was her ability to remember specific events and dates. I had given my deposition nearly 4 years ago, and had forgotten some of the dates when certain things took place and she was able to recall them right then and there. Not only is Ms Fitzpatrick extremely friendly, she's very detailed oriented and always got back to me in a timely manner when I had questions about my case. Finally, I can without a doubt endorse and recommend Ms Fitzpatrick for her work in the legal world

A powerhouse who goes above and beyond!
I would, hands down, recommend Kelly Fitzpatrick of Fitzpatrick Law! I'm the owner of a small business start-up, and received some of the best legal advice I could have ever asked for! I had no clue where to start when it came to the legal side of owning a business. She advised me on which business structure would best suit my small business (an LLC), ways to go about setting it up, how to trademark my business name, all the way down to providing insight and developing solid contracts for me to issue to my clients. She makes herself readily available for consultations as I have questions pertaining to my business as well as looking ahead into the future of my company. No where have I ever found a lawyer this informative and effective, willing to help, and who is also personable... truly someone that I'd like to grab coffee or lunch with - which we've done! Kelly is a powerhouse who goes above and beyond for her clients.
