I was recommended to Patrick by another lawyer, it was the best recommendation I have ever had. I was getting the run around by the workers comp insurance company for months. With in a week of retaining Patrick that changed immediately. He got answers and results that seemed impossible for me to. When you are dealing with Patrick it doesn’t take long to figure out he really does care about your wellbeing and getting you taken care of. You are not just a number to him. He always answers or calls you back, I called him several times late on a Friday left a message to call me Monday not Patrick he called me late Friday. You want find that anywhere. He is always there to answer any questions or concerns you have and happy to do so.He also has a great support staff Jennifer was always so pleasant and helpful. She stayed on top of weekly requirements and anything else I needed help with. Patrick went up against some tough opposition and worked relentlessly to get me a fair settlement. I came to Patrick at my wits end and in the end I feel like things could not have gone any better. Thank you Patrick and Jennifer for all you have done. If you need workers comp help you will not find any better.

I tried 3 times on my own to get the disability benefits that I deserved and was denied almost immediately each time. I was about to lose my home and fell into major depression and diagnosed having generalized anxiety disorder due to stress. I told myself to try 1 more time. I asked my attorney, who does not specialize in disability cases, who should I contact. He immediately told me to contact B. Patrick Agnew. The firm agreed to take my case. Their paralegal Jennifer Martin was a God send to me. It only took the firm 4 months to help get my benefits approved. If anyone needs a disability attorney, look no further. Make a call and you will not regret it!!!!!
