Dean did an amazing job drafting my will. Every step of the way, he made sure he understood my vision that I wanted to leave for my family. An emotional process it was and he made sure that I understood the importance of the process. I feel very confident knowing that I made the right decision for my family and that financially they'll be in a good place in my absence.

Angel Paluskas

I have used Dean multiple times and keep him on speed dial. Each time I have used him he has worked hard and been very honest. Dean has assisted me in a prenuptial and getting out of a business lease. Dean stayed on top of everything and updated me on progress. I do not feel anyone would have worked harder.

Tanya Roberson

My husband and I highly recommend Mr. Dean Patrick! He was initially hired based on his knowledge and timely responses. Although it was intended to be regarding a single matter, we realized what an asset he was and have used him with multiple services and attorney needs. Along with professionalism one of the things we appreciate about Dean is his ability to explain the legal language and laws to us, and include his honest opinion about what that means for each case individually. We have recommended family members to him, and will continue to do so without hesitation.

J Gray

After the sudden and devastating loss of my mother, I was overwhelmed with the task of closing out her estate. I do not reside in Michigan, so I was not even sure that I would be able to go through the probate process on my own.
After searching through a sea of attorneys, I came across Dean's website. It was actually someone else's testimony that stood out about him, and how he assisted their family in their time of loss, and I tell you, he did not disappoint! He was very thorough and detailed from the start and kept me informed every step of the way.
For me, he made the process seamless, which I appreciate.
I will surely tell everyone I know in Michigan about Dean Patrick. He is an amazing attorney!

Jeremy Janis

Im verry happy i found such a good lawyer.   I have had a few lawyers in my past who i have paid dearly for. I wish i would of known of him sooner. He made me feel like we were in it together. He took so much time going over everything untill he made sure i was confident with my decisions and i understood every possible option and therefore the outcome. I felt as if I had known him for a long time the way he generally cared about me personally and my situation I'm not the type to go out of my way and give reviews butt I would like to help somebody else whos looking for a great lawyer. So I thought to give him a review so people know what a great all around experience and how satisfied I was with him. I will definitely  hire him again and I recommend him to all my friends and family and anyone else I meet that needs help finding a good lawyer.
