I just want to thank you for everything you have done for me. I can't even put into words how happy I am. I hope you have the best holiday! You truly gave me my Christmas miracle! My kids are happy and I feel secure now. You are saved in my phone as Auntie Patty because that is just how you made me feel when everything happened so quick and I started to panic you eased my mind with a simple email reassuring me that you had this all under control. I could go on and on about how amazing you are but I will keep this short and sweet. Please tell Robyn how much I appreciate everything she has done for me also!

OMG -what a life saver for me - Pat Sullivan was one of the best things that has happened to me. She is patient, tough when she needs to be, understanding, empathetic and extremely knowledgeable in the law. My first hand experience going through the Rhode Island law system, she is extremely well respected by her peers, the judges and the negotiators - they consistently greeted her and by the body language you could see the quiet respect and admiration. My divorce case was probably one of the toughest in RI and longest (over two years) and Pat stuck with me when she easily could have said this is nutty - why put myself through this. Thank God she did!! She was available 24/7 giving me her cell phone number - I was treated as a person and not just some client/job. Her rates were fair and she was always accurate on time and hours. I am so happy that I had Pat in my life during this tumultuous time period. Divorce is never easy but in my case you had to have the patience of an oak tree and Pat never wavered. As my ex boasted to me "I have the best Divorce Lawyer in RI" - well he dropped her as well as another until the third lawyer hung on - I personally think I had the best lawyer and I can use facts. Can't say enough about Pat Sullivan - if you want a fighter and consummate professional in your corner - stopped looking and pray Pat has the time to take you on as client - if she can then rest assured that you are in great hands with absolutely the best experience and legal mind!

For a few months, my fiance and I have been discussing a pre-nuptial agreement. We did online research and we were going to sign a do it yourself pre-nup. We felt that our situation was not complicated and we wanted to avoid paying a lawyer. As our date approached, we realized we were being foolish to try to draft this important financial document by ourselves. We decided that if we made a mistake, that in the event that we went through a divorce, that a judge would not enforce our do it yourself document. This put our individual assets at risk. We gave a lot of thought to what we would lose if we went through a divorce and did not have a proper pre-nup versus the cost of having a lawyer draft the pre-nup. It was clear that we had so much more to lose in a divorce than the cost of the legal fee for the pre-nup. We did online research and learned that Pat Sullivan is very experienced in drafting pre-nups. I decided to call her. She got on the phone with me right away. She drafted the pre-nup. She was great to work with and her fee was fair. Going into our marriage, we have peace of mind about our financial future.

My recent experience with the Law Offices of Pat Sullivan regarding the process of seeking and securing my divorce was notable. I was referred to Attorney Sullivan's office by a fellow colleague who had heard of her substantial skills and performance. Since seeking to pursue my divorce I was consistently and methodically guided by her. She spent meticulous time in leading me through the onerous documents required; and the timely responses necessary to keep the proceedings in check and moving forward; despite my living out of state. Perhaps the most outstanding example of her profound knowledge, acumen and savvy with the legal process entailed was my experience with her in court on the day of the divorce hearing. My estranged husband arrived unexpectedly within minutes prior to the case being heard, causing her to have to change approach, processes and testimony requirements spontaneously. She did not pause nor was sidetracked by this sudden diversion. She was masterful and sensitive to all parties. She was eloquent, polished and adept. I would highly recommend Pat Sullivan's services to anyone. She is brilliant and outstanding.

When I scheduled my initial consultation in January, 2016, my wife’s attorney had just served me with the divorce papers. My wife and I had talked about being amicable. When I came in to see you, I had absolutely no thought that I was going to hire an attorney. The only reason that I came in to see you was because you offered a free consultation and I wanted the information from you and I didn’t want to pay for any lawyer. I remember how nice you were to me and that you clearly knew your stuff. You made me feel comfortable. Your retainer was more than reasonable. But, in my naiveté and arrogance, true to my convictions, I stupidly decided to represent myself. A few months into the process, it was clear that my wife did not really intend to be amicable and her lawyer was working for her. I knew I needed a lawyer and I called you. You got me in to see you right away and immediately took over for me. Now that the case is just about finalized, I just wanted to say a few things. First of all, you did a great job for me and your fees were reasonable. Second, I want to apologize to you. I used you for the free consultation and that was wrong. I felt really badly when I did it. Third, I just want to say to anybody out there who might be in a family court case or going to go through a family court case, that you should hire Pat Sullivan. Don’t try to do it yourself to avoid lawyer fees. You don’t know what you are doing. The judges and clerks can’t give you any advice and the other lawyer is looking out for his client not you. Pat is the nicest person and truly knows her stuff. Her fee was reasonable. She always had my back and she will have your back as well.

I am an executive with an office on the Warwick/East Greenwich line. When I was served with divorce papers in early January, I decided that it would be easier for me to have a lawyer in the area of my office. I did some online research and it seemed to me that there were two lawyers in the Warwick/East Greenwich area who I should interview. One was a man attorney; the other was Patricia Sullivan (obviously a female attorney). I made an appointment with the man attorney. When I went to his office, I was kind of taken aback by all of the memorabilia and photos. It is like a shrine. He was late for our appointment and tried to suggest it was due to his busy schedule. He saw me in a conference room which was just a continuation of the photos and memorabilia. I guess he was nice enough and competent enough but I thought he was pricey.
A week or so later, I met with Pat Sullivan. She greeted me upon my arrival. I didn’t even wait one minute for her to greet me. She interviewed me in her personal office. It was just she and I in a tasteful environment. Pat was really nice. She put me at ease. Definitely a competent lawyer. Her prices were substantially less than the man lawyer.
Several months later, I am still very happy with my choice of attorney. Pat is always accessible to me. Highly responsive. She is very talented. She has made some unique arguments on my behalf and, even though my case has not finished, I really feel like I am in a good place. When I go to Court, it is obvious that everyone likes Pat. The judicial staff, court personnel and even other lawyers are always talking with her, saying hi etc. She is very popular.
I encourage anyone needing a divorce lawyer (regardless of what city or town you live in) to hire Pat.

Please bear with me as I share my recent experience.
In December, 2015, I had a free initial consultation with Pat. I thought she was terrific and I decided to hire her. I related this to one of my friends who suggested that I contact the Rhode Island Bar Association to see if I could get a referral to a divorce lawyer. I really can’t explain why I listened to my friend rather than my inner voice. I met with the attorney recommended by the bar association. I gave the attorney a very large retainer (more than Pat wanted as a retainer) and the paperwork I was served with. The lawyer I hired did nothing. I called. No return call. I’d call again. No return call. The lawyer didn’t file any paperwork on my behalf or notify my spouse’s counsel that he was representing me. Weeks went by. I was panicking. There was a court date scheduled. On a Saturday afternoon in early February, I sent an email to Pat. She got back to me in minutes. I was both relieved and impressed. I fired the other lawyer and hired Pat. She’s great. I’m in very capable hands. Her accessibility is incredible. Always go with your gut! Don’t listen to other people.
