"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."
