What Clients Say About Attorney Patrick Roberts As AFelony ChargesLawyer:

A Formal Thank You

“Having never hired a lawyer before, I was very selective and also very apprehensive about the entire situation, which was scary and overwhelming at first... While winning is what everyone wants, it's a process getting there. One which takes time and patience, and a good lawyer first and foremost... I followed my instincts and scheduled an appointment with Roberts Law Firm. To this day I consider this one of the best decisions I have ever made…

…Mr. Roberts is honestly one of the hardest working individuals I've ever come across. All of the Saturday meetings and phone calls; his accessibility and straightforwardness; and the kind, professional manner he kept consistently without fail, meant the world to me, really. I needed a hero, and he filled that role effortlessly.”

Never has let me down!

When our son was arrested on sexual assault and rape charges, I was lost. I searched and found Patrick Roberts. I was impressed with his resume so we met with him and hired him. Now our son's case is over. It has taken a long time to get to the end of this experience, but I thank God for sending Patrick Roberts our way!

“When the future of your life and family are on the line, there is a fear and hopelessness that often seizes upon you. This past year has been the most challenging of my entire life. Yet I would not be here to share these thoughts if it had not been for Attorney Patrick Roberts…

…Attorney Roberts effectively communicated progress as needed and worked with the prosecution to reach an agreement. At the final sentencing, he was able to negotiate a judgement significantly reduced from what was originally charged, including no prison time…”

“I hired Patrick and his firm to represent me in a very sensitive and frightening case. I was able to come in for a meeting immediately and had one of the most honest conversations of my life. He was honest, direct, and kind. There was no hint of judgement from a single person on their staff They fought for my rights in a way I've never seen. I still joke with some close friends about the prowess that man has in a court room. Not only did he fight for me, he also pointed me in the direction of people who could actually help me. His confidence, knowledge, and support led to my charges being dismissed. I will forever keep their business cards on hand, and plan to use them for any legal matters, within their purview, going forward. If you've never done this before, feel hopeless, and don't know what the next step is... This is not an area of life where price shopping gives you a better deal. No matter the outcome, you can rest assured your case was handled in the best of ways with Patrick Roberts and the many powerful people he works with.”

“With Patrick Roberts’ help our son was given the best possible outcome – a dismissal of all charges. His planning and communication skills ensured that our family and our out of state co-counsel were all clear on his skilled vision and guidance.

Bottom line is this: having Patrick Roberts on our side gave us great comfort during a long, tumultuous ordeal. We would never hesitate to call on him again if needed.”

Mr. Roberts understands how the criminal investigation process works

“Law enforcement showed up at our house with a warrant to search the entire premises. They were after my teenage son. They knew every aspect of our life, right down to my wife's health condition. It was horrifying. No arrests were made, but the next 48 hours we did not know what to expect. We stayed close to each other as much as possible, not knowing what was going to happen next. We felt hopeless and felt that in a few days our son would be in prison.

I scoured the internet looking for somebody to help. I found Patrick Roberts... I called his office and he told us to come in right away.

Because Mr. Roberts worked as a prosecutor and a criminal defense lawyer in NC, he understands how the investigation process works. He was able to negotiate the best possible outcome for my son. If it were not for the experience and care that Mr. Roberts, my son would not have a future.”

No Charges!!!!!

“Our teenage son was recently accused of sexual assault in a dorm on a college campus. We believed in his innocence, did our research and hired Raleigh's top rated Super Lawyer [publication] A. Patrick Roberts and we were not disappointed. We knew from the consultation that we were in good hands. Mr. Roberts wasted no time obtaining the report and jumping into action. I will never forget the joy I felt in my heart when I received the call informing me that there would be no charges made against our son. His practice is very efficient and receptive in every way. He is the REAL DEAL!”

Brilliant and effective attorney

“We hired Patrick to defend our son against very serious felony charges that we knew to be false. It was the scariest thing to put our trust in someone to help us, especially living out of state, but we were so fortunate that we found Patrick. He showed a tremendous attention to detail, hired [skilled professional advisors] to examine and refute the evidence, and used brilliant strategies to poke holes in the case. After four long years, and many highs and lows, Patrick did what he promised: he took care of our son. Felony charges were reduced to a misdemeanor with no jail time. We will always be grateful to Patrick and his firm for giving our son his life back.”
