What Our Clients Say

Drew Patterson is an exceptional, multifaceted attorney. He continually strives to understand the intricacies of our business and produce results. He is highly recommended.

I dealt with Drew on a business lawsuit and he did a hell of a job, being very thorough and winning the case for me. He also recommended me a very good thorough lawyer for a different lawsuit and I'm very pleased with everything that Drew has done not only in the one case but his referrals as well. Would definitely recommend and refer friends to him.

I cannot express enough the immediate efforts of Drew to solve the problem at hand was something you don't see often nowadays. Drew was able to completely prevent something from happening that would have changed the course of my life. If anyone wants a lawyer that makes you feel like you are his number 1 priority hire Drew!!!! Definitely recommending him to anyone that is in need of legal counsel.

Great to work with and Very effective! Many Thanks to attorney Drew Patterson, who handled a business lawsuit for me in a very professional and timely manner resulting in the case being dismissed. In my opinion, Drew was very knowledgeable, asked pertinent questions, explained things easily and understandably, and was a pleasure to work with. He gets it done! If I need an attorney again, Drew will be the first one I call. Additionally, the staff at Robert Eckard & Associates were always courteous and helpful.

Thank you for all you did for me during this difficult time I couldn’t ask for a better team of lawyers even when I was lamenting the speed of things, you guys are professional, tenacious, and know your sh-t!.
