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.”

This lawyer is the real deal!

“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.”

Never has let me down!

I went with Attorney Roberts shortly after his practice open and have never looked back. His prescence and savy in a court room was nothing short than pure excellence.”

Patrick Roberts also has an excellent command of many of the technical issues...  that are implicated in cases involving technology, forensic science and the like.
