This by far was one of the best attorneys I have worked with. He seems to really care about serving his clients, and he knows what he is doing. I met several attorneys when trying to select one to represent me. Before meeting Patrick, I felt none of the attorneys even cared enough to really look at the details of the case. It seemed most would just go through the motions. Patrick Nolan is a go getter. I believe he works hard to do everything he can on your behalf. If you have a serious case and really need good representation, I feel this is the man to go more

Patrick handled my case professionally and with great care. It was an emotional time and he took the time to make sure I understood everything. He made sure my best interest was put first. He communicated clearly, answered questions promptly and returned phone calls in a timely manner. I would recommend Patrick and would use him again if I needed more

Patrick does outstanding work as a lawyer. He sat down with me and discussed everything that could possibly happen to me with my case, even before I hired him. He also talked to my mom on the phone for numerous hours in explaining to her everything that will happen in the process- from the moment I received my citation through the court date. After I hired him- he frequently updated me on the status of my citation and walked me through the entire process. He was able to get my entire citation dropped by the prosecuting attorney and I didn't have to appear in court. There were 4 other people who received the same citation as I, and they still have their charges, as they chose different lawyers. Hiring Patrick Nolan as my lawyer, in this matter, was the best decision I could have made. I would refer him to all of my family and friends. With his help, all of your problems can be solved, as were mine. If I ever need an attorney again, I will be sure to call Patrick more
