I was the beneficiary in a friend's will, and Patrick was the most thorough person ever. He kept me posted throughout the process and made sure I had all the facts and information needed as things progressed. I will be using him to assist me with my will because the process was pleasant yet painless. In addition, he was very responsive to all questions and concerns. He always made a point to get back to me the same day. I look forward to working with him again! Read lessRead less
