Patrick took care of everything for me.
After my car accident, I found myself with no car, $2,600 in debt due to negative equity in the car, and a back injury that just wouldn't go away. I tried to deal with the insurance company thinking they would give me a square deal. That simply wasn't the case. I turned to Patrick and his firm for help. Patrick not only took care of "all" the headaches but in the end was able to settle for more than what I was prepared to accept as a settlement. I thank Patrick for all he has done for me. Before hiring this firm, I felt bullied and scared which can be so overwhelming. All those feelings subsided after talking with Patrick. He said he would take care of things...and he did.
