Biography

Patrick is passionate about his fight for justice for those who have been harmed by the actions of others. His practice area focuses on sexual abuse, government liability, wrongful death, catastrophic personal injury, elder abuse, and auto accidents.
 
Starting as a law clerk, and now as an Associate Attorney, Patrick has worked at PCVA since 2018, fighting hard for his clients to obtain a number of successful jury verdicts and settlements.
 
Patrick was born and raised in Germany and began his professional career in the medical field. In 2009, he moved to the United States, and after witnessing insurance injustice and the devastating trauma it caused his patients, he transitioned to the practice of law to fight for the voiceless.
 
Patrick graduated Summa Cum Laude from Central Washington University and Cum Laude from Seattle University School of Law. While in law school, he competed in mock trial, moot court, and legal writing competitions. He was a finalist in Seattle University School of Law’s annual Fredric C. Tausend Moot Court Competition and the Cheney Metzger Legal Writing Competition. He was honored twice as a King County Legal Scholar, and he was inducted into Alpha Sigma Nu’s Honor Society.
 
In his free time, Patrick spends time outdoors with his wife and three children. He also enjoys exercising, traveling, hiking, and snowboarding.
