I really appreciated Ms. Patrick’s patience, care, and compassion when I came to her with my mess of a case. Her time and attention made all the difference for me.
Ms. Patrick took such great care of my daughter this past year with her motor vehicle accident. I knew she was in capable hands and knowing that helped me and the whole family deal with the events.
Ms. Patrick helped me through the whole ordeal of a claim, and helped me to move on and finally have closure. She took care of my issue so quickly, and had full integrity to listen to me in what I needed from the situation and to help me achieve that goal. I think a very small margin of attorneys would have actually done that.
She was amazing in explaining and following through on a plan of action. would recommend her to anyone in need.
