Joplin Injury Attorney

Patrick became interested in law as a child when his mother was involved in a serious car wreck caused by an irresponsible driver. For several months, he witnessed his mother struggle with the pain of her bodily injures, the frustration of being unable to tend to her home and children, and the financial torment and worry that came from her inability to work. The doctors helped mend his mother’s broken body, but it was her lawyer that helped mend her broken life. Her lawyer understood the impact the wreck had not only on her body, but her overall life and the lives of her family as well. The dedication that the lawyer showed to his mother and the drive to make sure she received full and fair compensation for all she had endured left a lasting impression on Patrick and made him want to help others in the same way.

For Patrick, the best part about practicing law is the opportunity to help others who have experienced real tragedy in their lives; the opportunity to guide people down a difficult, unfamiliar path at a time when their lives have been turned upside down. “I am
blessed to get to meet a wide variety of people suffering from a wide variety of circumstances, and having them trust me to help them. There is no better feeling than to be able to help someone who truly needs and deserves it.“

Patrick and his wife, Jennifer, have been married for 25 glorious years. Together they have four wonderful children; Chris, Meagan, Caroline, and Marisa. Family is their top priority. All of their spare time is centered around the lives of their children, who are very active in sports - especially competitive swimming, art, and music. Patrick says “the most important and rewarding job anyone can have is that of a parent.“ Years ago, Patrick read a quote that still moves and inspires him to this day:

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove … but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.”

Truer words have not been spoken.

“You will receive the respect you deserve; your case will receive the attention it deserves; and you will have the best opportunity for the outcome that you deserve.”
