“Couldn’t have been a better experience!”
In handling my divorce case, Patricia was the perfect combination of compassion, support, intelligence, personal and professional experience, wisdom, and creative problem-solving, She has amazing power to focus on the issue at hand, remember all the pertinent details in complex situations, and bring them forward at precisely the right moment. She collaborated with me exceptionally well, first listening to my concerns and priorities, and then identifying new approaches to the situation, laying out the options, talking through their advantages and disadvantages, advising me which one to choose, genuinely soliciting my feedback, and supporting me in my choice/decision. She’s eminently reasonable and pragmatic, with a strong sense of genuine fairness, and she knows how to get things done. She could not have handled this case better. Working with her made all the difference, not only in the outcome, but also in the quality …
Patricia handled my divorce which was final in 2007. It was a challenge from the start; my ex-wife’s lawyer simply did what she asked without regard to logic or professionalism. Patricia was the epitome of professionalism. She always took the high road and would not resort to fighting dirty. I cannot say as much for my ex-wife. I guess a lot of the divorce process is dirty pool, but I appreciated that Patricia was above that. She involved me every step of the way and took no action without making sure I understood and agreed with her approach. I heartily endorse her abilities as a divorce lawyer and applaud her professionalism. I strongly recommend her without reservation. – a Divorce Client (AVVO Review)
“Brilliant Family Law Attorney”
I cannot begin to tell you how incredible our experience with Patricia has been. She has been our outstanding attorney for over 6 years and was able to help us with our relocation case, child support, parenting plan modifications, trial. She is literally the smartest woman that I have ever known and she has the biggest heart. She deeply cares for the people she represents and she was the voice of sanity in our very crazy case. She had so much knowledge about relocation cases (that were relatively new at the time) and she remembered every detail of our case. She was able to wade through the garbage that the opposing parties kept throwing at us in the most professional way. She’s a very fair attorney and lets you know what you can expect and doesn’t waste your time and …

“Great Help With My Divorce”
Patricia, was great with explaining what rights I had when filing for divorce. She gave me advise on the financial side of the divorce. Her firm did all the filings for me, all I had to do was give her the information that she asked me for. It was nice not having to figure out what to do. If I ever have a need for a lawyer again, I will contact Patricia. – Rich (AVVO Review)
