About

Hi, I’m Patrick. I’m passionate about bringing usable, real world legal advice to my clients.

I represent clients in Minnesota on a variety of business and personal matters, including employment law, contracts, business formation, and real estate issues. As the former owner of a landscaping business, I understand how the law affects both small businesses and individuals.  

As an attorney, I have learned to help clients with the big problems first. We can work on the little stuff once the big issues have been taken care of.

I am an Adjunct Law Professor and an Army Reserve Judge Advocate. Both of these experiences give me a broader perspective in aiding my clients.

I approach every consultation with the goal of making sure my clients are better off and more secure in their legal decision making process when the consultation is complete.

Why I Practice Law
I practice law to help people navigate the increasingly complex legal and regulatory environment that we live in.
Fun Fact
I have traveled to 37 countries, completed 6 marathons, hiked to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro, and once competed as a Golden Gloves boxer.
