Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I represented a father falsely accused of abusing his wife and daughter. I was able to have the restraining order dismissed, and my client got custody of the daughter. I represented a husband who had attempted mediation and been convinced to over pay child and spousal support. I took over representation, and was able to get a court order reducing support , custody time with father increased to meet his goal, and the assets divided equaly. I represented a full time mother who was receiving no support , and the working father demanded equal parenting time. The children would be placed in day care rather than with the mother. I was successful in getting a very good support and custody order for the mother.

How did you build a successful practice?
I am responsive to every client, and we determine their goals together, I then diligently pursue those goals on behalf of my client. I refused to be bullied or intimidated , I developed a reputation of being tenacious and strong, and the practice developed by personal referrals.

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
Clients should look for 10 years experience in practice, and that the lawyer limits their practice to one area of the law such as family law and divorce. The client should feel comfortable with the attorney, and the lawyer must keep the client informed about their case.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Extremely important. Each judge has their own personality and preferences. The lawyer should be able to present the case in a manner that takes that into consideration to maximize the potential for obtaining the clients goals

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
I do not do free phone consultations. I believe it is important for the attorney and client to meet in person. I can t obtain more facts and ensure the client understands my advise if we meet in person. The client can also determine if they are comfortable with me, and can relate to me.

What information do you need in aconsultation?
I prefer a 30 to 45 minute in person consultation where I can gather facts accurately, determine the legal issues and ensure the client understands the legal issues and possible outcome. We offer a discounted, reasonable initial consultation fee.

What differentiates you from other lawyers in your community?
I am one of the most experienced family law attorneys in our area, and I limit my practice to family law so I can devote all my time to keeping current in the area of family kaw. The law and court rules in the area of divorce and family law change frequently and it is essential to stay current with those changes. I have an excellent track record and prepare each case completely before going into settlement or litigation. Among the judicial officers I am know for always being prepared and knowledgeable.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
To have a client say "Thank you Pat, you fought really hard for me." Or " Thank you Pat, I feel better now knowing someone understands and can help me."

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Family including my grandchildren, church , golf, reading

Are you involved in your community?
I serve as mediator in the south bay legal community. Attend and support my church regularly.
