Patrick was born and raised in Buffalo, the son of a public school teacher and an assistant District Attorney. He attended the University at Buffalo, majoring in English and Psychology, and earned his law degree from the University at Buffalo School of Law.
Upon completing law school, Patrick joined a firm that specialized in defending lawsuits on behalf of insurance companies. After several years of practice, he moved with his wife to Albany to start a family and went to work as an in-house attorney for a large insurance company. After eleven years working on the defense side, Patrick learned how insurance companies handle cases and the strategies they use against those injured as a result of their customer’s negligence.
In 2018, Patrick decided to make a change in his career track and joined Martin, Harding and Mazzotti where he now only represents injured plaintiffs. Patrick feels that he is in the best position to represent plaintiffs because he knows how insurance companies evaluate cases and the tactics they use to avoid paying injured parties what they owe. Patrick is dedicated to using his experience on the other side to assist his clients in obtaining the best possible result in their cases.
When he is not in the office, Patrick spends his time in Delmar where he lives with his wife and two young children.
