When you begin an L&I case it feels very much like you are being punished for being injured. The L&I Department’s job is to get you back to work as soon as possible and sometimes this is not in keeping with your recovery needs. Trying to communicate with the department is frustrating and the rules can be difficult to understand. This frustration created more stress and worry on top the damage that my assault had caused. When Patrick took over it was like a burden being lifted from my shoulders. I could finally let go of the worry about who was looking out for my needs and concentrate on getting better. Not only did Patrick succeed in relieving me of the worry but he also achieved the best possible outcome for me. When it came down to pay he also didn’t even take all that was allowed by the laws but once again put my needs first. Patrick is a great man and a wonderful attorney.
