About
I am a joint Juris Doctor – Master of Science in Real Estate Development graduate of Duke University School of Law and Columbia University respectively. I completed my final year of law school at New York University in 2009. I am an active member of the California Bar and a licensed broker through California’s Bureau of Real Estate.

Through my years in school and since graduation, I have focused on developing a thorough and well-rounded experience within real estate law and the associated fields of finance, business management and government. This experience has allowed me to effectively and efficiently serve clients and their needs.

"I was introduced to Patrick through a friend and I am certainly thankful to have met him. Even though his specialty is real estate and business law (which he has been excellent at by the way), I have also gone to him for employment and family/estate planning matters. Patrick is an amazing resource to have. He often raises issues I would have never considered and provides solutions that are both effective and cost efficient."

"Over the years, Patrick has helped me with a number of different legal matters. He is my first call whenever a legal question comes up regardless of the area of law. For example, he has handled real estate (purchase, sale. leasing and financing) transactions for me and even assisted in establishing a new medical practice. Patrick takes the time to explain issues in a comprehensive and comprehensible way, so I feel confident that I am making fully informed decisions. I highly recommend him."
