What Clients Say About Attorney Patrick Roberts As AFelony ChargesLawyer:

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.”

Wonderful attorney

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!

“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.”

“Patrick Roberts represented me during a very difficult time in my life, in which I was charged with a Federal Class D felony. From the first time my wife and I met Patrick we felt confident that we had found the best lawyer to represent me. I was very scared, as this was my first experience being charged with a federal offense. Patrick is a very brilliant and confident lawyer…

…Patrick was always honest with my wife and I, and from the first day we hired him, we felt that he immediately started working on my defense. He takes the time to explain in detail what to expect with the court process, and what he expects the outcome to be.

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!”

Never has let me down!

“Mr. Patrick is a true professional. I have never in my life been in a position where my character was questioned, and Mr. Patrick's did a great job of keeping it that way. He was not at all judgmental and all too assuring about the positive outcome of my case, which helped me sleep better at night considering the consequences I was facing.

I was a first time offender so I was terrified at the possible 4-6 years I was facing but thanks to Mr. Roberts' extensive experience in the field, and good relations within the system he was ultimately able to reduce that sentence to 4 years of probation among other minor conditions. I am sure that I could not have been represented in a better way... and strongly recommend anyone who has an issue with the law to choose Mr. Andy Patrick Roberts.”

Exceptional representation from a Criminal Defense Attorney

“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…”

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.”
