M. H. a Former Client

"To anyone looking for an attorney: If you want someone who will fight to the finish for you, Patricia Depew is the one. She is the toughest, most informed attorney I have ever met. Her staff is amazing. I hear friends constantly saying that their attorney never returns calls. Ms. Depew has called me at all hours. She is the most competent attorney you could find. My case was so involved that I think another attorney would have given up, but not this law office. Do yourself a favor and get the best there is.”
