Overview

Patrick has practiced civil law since 1993, representing clients in litigation in a variety of industries. He believes it is important to see the big picture when preparing a case, but also knows that it is critical to pay close attention to details. He is frequently hired to represent clients in difficult cases, including as “major case” panel counsel for multiple insurance carriers.

Product Liability: Patrick has represented manufacturers in cases involving claims of product defect across a wide variety of industries, including medical devices, pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, health care products, consumer electronics, aerosols, petroleum extraction and processing equipment, industrial equipment, building components and construction products. He currently represents two manufacturing clients nationally.

Premises Liability: Patrick has represented commercial clients sued under a wide variety of premises liability theories, from alleged inadequate security to slip-and-falls.

Transportation: Patrick is well-versed in Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations and the customs and practices of the industry. For his transportation industry clients, Patrick leads an accident response team that is prepared seven days a week, 24 hours a day, to document an accident scene and assure preservation of critical evidence.

Patrick is not just a litigator; he is a trial lawyer. He has represented clients in trials involving allegations of product liability, premises liability, motor carrier liability, breach of contract, consumer protection matters, employment issues, non-compete agreements, fraud, conversion (theft), trade secrets, trademarks, and breach of fiduciary duty.

He is admitted to practice in all state and federal courts in Texas. He has practiced in most courts in the state, and tried cases to juries in Bowie County, Collin County, Dallas County, Grayson County, Hidalgo County, Hunt County, Hutchison County, Kaufman County, Lubbock County, Parker County, Tarrant County, Wise County and several Federal District Courts. Patrick has also been admitted pro hac vice in courts in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, Nevada, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, and Oklahoma.

Patrick’s AV-Preeminent® rating from Martindale-Hubbell® and his consistent inclusion on the Texas SuperLawyer® list and similar rolls of outstanding lawyers are a testament to his record of exceptional representation.

Patrick graduated from Boston College in 1990; earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Texas School of Law in 1993.
