About me

When I went to law school, I always knew I wanted to be a lawyer who fights for people.  I knew I wanted to be the best trial attorney and best appellate attorney possible.  I believe in God, the Constitution, individual freedom and personal liberty.  This is why I have been fighting for individuals and their rights and freedom since 2001, and I will continue to do so until my time is up.

Customer Reviews

Patrick Megaro has been a trustworthy and dependable colleague, friend and co-worker for well over ten years. He can be relied upon to be the most knowledgeable and gung-ho attorney in any room, always fighting for the rights of his clients. I would trust Patrick with the most sensitive or important of issues or cases.

I hired Patrick Megaro to represent me in a domestic violence case in New York. I was going to hire another lawyer who advised me to plead guilty. I am glad I hired Patrick Megaro intstead because this man fought so hard for me every time went to court. His efforts resulted in my case getting dismissed. If you want a warrior for a lawyer, this is the man.

Flawless, from start to finish. From the first conversation we had, I knew I had hired the right attorney. Patrick Megaro had an amazing knowledge of what needed to be done. From the very beginning, he made me feel comfortable, explained to me, in terms I could easily understand, how he would help me as my attorney.

Kept me informed. He knows the law. He knows your rights and he will absolutely help you the best any attorney can. With Patrick Megaro as my attorney, he proved my innocence and all charges were dropped. All I can say, very simply, he is the best.

I had an unexpected need for a criminal defence attorney when I was arrested for trespass in the course of doing businnesss. I spoke to Mr. Megaro at about 11:00 PM. He then spoke to the police and my release followed. The initial experience left me somewhat rattled, however, Mr. Megaro proved to be a source of comfort. During the brief court appearance that followed, I followed Mr Megaro’s advice and it was rewarded with a dismissal of charges. I woulld recomend Mr. Megaro to any one, particularly those who,like me, find themselves suddenly in a legal jam.

I have had to retain Mr. Maguros’ services several times. I was referred to him by another attorney whom I tried to hire initially. After the results he produced for me the first time; I will never not go to him first again. When it comes to criminal cases hire Patrick and don’t do time. I pray I will never need his services again except to update my will. I am forever in his debt.

I have had several legal issues over the past seven years and Mr. Megaro was the first person I turned to when I had questions. He either handled the issues himself or he was able to refer me to someone competent. What separates Mr. Megaro from other lawyers that I worked with was his empathetic ability to place himself in my shoes and see things from my perspective and be able to handle the situation accordingly. Unlike most other lawyers I worked with that just tried get the job done as quickly as possible and get paid. I really appreciated his attention to detail, his promptness in picking up and returning phone calls, and his exceptional urge to fight for me more than I could have ever asked for. Thanks Mr. Megaro, I just wish there were more like you.
