    Compassionate and Caring: With Patrick you don’t just get someone who knows the rules very well, but actually someone willing to listen and understand what you’re going through. He helped me out so much through my child custody case that I don’t know what’d i do without him. Not only that he gave me the confidence I need in a time that I felt like i had none. If you’re going through divorce and child custody he’s someone you’d want on your side hands down. I can’t thank him enough.

    When I began my relocation battle, I never imagined it to be as successful as it went. Based on my previous experience with lawyers, I figured I was for sure going to lose this battle once again. The very first time I spoke to Patrick, I knew this time around was going to be different. When I first met with him I was so impressed with his knowledge and how much he knew. He definitely taught me and made me aware of the rights I have as a father. Throughout the whole process I was never in the dark about anything. Anytime I had a question or a situation I couldn’t figure out, Patrick and his team was always there to help solve the problem. Patrick put in so much work to not only prepare me for trial, but also to make sure that I won. All said and done, because of Patrick, we stopped my son from relocating out of state. Not only that, but I am now the primary custodial parent. I really appreciate Patrick and his team for all the hard work and helping me win this case. Thank you so much!!!!

    It is hard to put into words how incredibly grateful I am to Pat and his team.  The last three years have been the most difficult years I have ever had to face when my two year old daughter was taken from me.  Her mother left the state and was in hiding for over eight months.  Although the fight for my daughter has lasted over two years, I couldn’t have asked for a better person to guide me through the legal process of relocating my daughter back here and gaining custody.  His sage advice helped me keep the course.  I put my daughter’s future in his hands and he did not disappoint.  I am lucky enough to say that I not only have my daughter back, I have full custody.  Again, I am very grateful for the work that Pat and his team has done for me, and the results were better than I ever would have predicted.  Thank you Pat, Alisa and Rick.
