Prior to attending law school, Patrick spent seven years touring the world as the lead guitarist and tour manager for an eleven-member musical act. During that time, Patrick cultivated an understanding of how to reconcile the wants and needs of many strong—and sometimes inharmonious—personalities.
Patrick applies those same skills to his legal practice, fully understanding all aspects of a dispute so that he can most effectively counsel his clients and advocate for their interests.
When Patrick isn’t practicing law, he still plays guitar and records and masters music. His wife (also an attorney) kindly listens, both to his musical creations and his overly complex dissertations on how to best acoustically treat a room.
