About Us

Fitzpatrick Law

This firm is first and foremost a litigation firm. Fitzpatrick Law is built on the understanding that a lawyer must be prepared to win in Court. Success in the Courtroom requires a combination of preparation, experience and skill.  The willingness to try the case and the ability to achieve a favorable result is an asset both for the client who has a matter that must be litigated and for the client who wants to negotiate from a position of strength to resolve the case short of going to trial. Fitzpatrick Law provides that combination of preparation, experience and skill.
