Overview

Patrick’s desire to help people led him to law. He strives to get his clients the best possible outcome in tough situations. Patrick’s background in sales is an asset to his clients, as he has the ability to communicate complex ideas in a way that’s easy to understand.

Patrick defends clients in breach of contract issues, indemnity disputes and insurance liability matters. He also counsels clients in risk mitigation. Patrick’s previous experience working at a plaintiff’s firm focusing on personal injury, medical malpractice and wrongful death cases gives him an insight into how the other side strategizes.
