For more than 15 years as an attorney and counselor, Patrick Kimmel has brought his unique combination of experience, skill, attitude, and humor to clients across multiple states. Through a myriad of disputes, conflicts, and strategic business planning and risk assessments, Patrick developed a core belief that a straightforward, honest analysis and execution will always trump tough talk and empty promises.
Patrick’s areas of practice have included:
- Complex Commercial Litigation
- General Civil Litigation
- Mass Torts
- Business/Partnership dissolutions
- Employment Disputes
- Insurance coverage actions
- Shareholder Actions
- Civil conspiracy and Fraud
- Appellate Law
Due to his exposure to a wide variety of practice areas and legal quandaries, and his willingness to take on the unknown, he approaches each new problem with a bemused grin and steadfast determination.
Whether fighting for the best recovery for hundreds of clients injured in a fertilizer plant explosion or going toe-to-toe against a national telecom for the reputation of a defamed military veteran, Patrick stands with his clients at each step of the way until a resolution is found or won.
From clerking for a state judge, Patrick had an invaluable look from the other side of the bench and gathered insight into what truly results in the best possible outcome for his clients. As in-house counsel, he found the balance of assessing, addressing, and mitigating risk all while maintaining forward momentum to reach corporate objectives. As a result of dozens of depositions, Patrick gained the ability to be a chameleon to fit the needs of each situation.
After years spent litigating cases involving an array of legal issues, parties, and claims, Patrick has learned that while each case is unique, a strategy of focusing on the needs and wants of the client, above all else, will always bring about the best result.
There are a few things in life that Patrick doesn’t know… bad mitton, how to spell badminton, driving a tractor, knitting, plumbing, ballet, glass blowing, the Dewey decimal system... OK. Turns out, it's not a short list. But what Patrick does know, he knows and does well.
