Patrick is a native Canadian (born in Toronto, Ontario), but was raised just outside of the nation’s capital in Chevy Chase, Maryland. Prior to law school, Patrick studied business at the University of Kentucky and was on the practice squad for the school’s tennis team. Following his graduation in 2009, Patrick moved to Florida to be closer to his family and pursue his Juris Doctorate. And in 2012, after graduating from law school, Patrick was admitted to the Florida bar. Thereafter in 2013, Patrick moved to Arizona and subsequently passed his second bar exam in as many summers.
Since moving to Arizona, Patrick has focused his practice to provide comprehensive direction and attentive guidance with regard to both transactional and litigation matters. Because of his litigation experience and transactional background, Patrick is able to provide well-rounded and cost-effective solutions in litigation consistent with his client’s business objectives.
Patrick has represented community associations involved in commercial and contract litigation concerning board governance and compliance, enforcement of governing documents, violations and collections, business and economic torts, contract disputes, and other civil and commercial matters. When he’s not litigating matters, Patrick assists entities and individuals with real estate and business transactions, commercial leasing, professional services and license agreements, entity formation, and contract negotiation and drafting.
In his free time, Patrick enjoys being outside with his miniature German shepherd – Brody – and anything sports related. As a former collegiate tennis player, Patrick still enjoys giving tennis lessons/clinics to several local non-profit organizations. When he is not keeping active, Patrick enjoys watching sports…particularly University of Kentucky basketball, the Phoenix Suns, and the Washington Nationals.
