Patrick G. King

Patrick L. King - Attorney At LawMy practice is devoted to representing individuals, families, and small businesses in the courtroom, at trial, and to strategically represent in the trial courts as well as appellate courts. As a trial lawyer, I put my clients’ interests before personal benefits; anything short of this principle would fail to uphold the ethics of my profession and standards of King Law Firm, LLC. Through a Peer Review Process by Martindale-Hubbell, I received the highest rating - AV Preeminent - for legal ability and ethics. As Martindale-Hubbell has been rating attorneys for more than 130 years, I accept and take this Peer Review Process and Rating very seriously as a practicing attorney.   

At King Law Firm, our style is to make our clients and potential clients informed, comfortable, and confident. Our goal is to make the legal or judicial process understandable and affordable. At the same time, we deliver assertive, accessible, and responsible legal representation and advocacy. To accomplish these goals, we promote an open channel of communication, keeping matters confidential, to inspire long lasting and trusting professional and community relationships.

Many of our clients are facing threats to their financial well-being, freedom, loss of a family member or loved one, or physical health. During these stressful and difficult times, my clients must know that they have real access to my staff and me. Our staff is dedicated to the same high level of service, confidentiality, professionalism, and integrity.

If you wish to schedule an appointment, please call my office. We offer flexible business hours for new and existing clients.
