Clients and Community The Two Best Aspects of Kevin Patrick Law Legal Brief with Kevin
Atticus Finch, who is one of the most famous fictional American lawyers of all time, remarked: “There is one way in this country in which all men are created equal — there is one human institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein, and the ignorant man the equal of any college president. That institution is a court.”We are beginning this newsletter with a quote from Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird because this quote is emblematic of our passion for the work that we do every day. We truly believe that the American judicial system is the finest in the world given its ability to foster ultimate equality for all of people: Everyone has a voice. The impetus for my overall interest in law began at the Walker School when I participated in the High School Mock Trial Program. The enthusiasm of teachers like Mrs. Strickland and Fr. Jim laid the early foundation for a legal career. They inspired us to pursue our dreams. After high school, I studied the Classics at the University of Georgia with the hope of going on to law school. In fact, my senior thesis focused on the Roman advocate and statesman Marcus Tullius Cicero. He was an inspiration along with Professor Anderson and others. To paraphrase the words of Cicero, “Our special duty is that if anyone specially needs our help, we should give him such help to the utmost of our power.” I took this advice and listened to my heart.

These organizations have inspired us and helped us grow in the community. While our firm’s overarching goal is obtaining the best possible result for each and every case, we work hard to accomplish another important mission: We hope to uphold the state of Georgia’s ingrained tradition of providing equal legal footing and genuine care for all of its citizens. We are truly grateful for the trust that our clients have placed in us and our judicial system.
still hold them in the highest of esteem. This practice setting allowed me to gain useful knowledge pertaining to insurance claims, but I missed the human element of working with individual people as clients. Now that I have my own firm, I strive to incorporate my knowledge of insurance practices and add a personal element for our clients. We always try to make ourselves accessible to them. It’s the little things too. We try to remember birthdays and other special occasions. Simply put, being able to work with each client on an individual basis creates a relationship based on trust, compassion, and mutual respect. Along with the relationships we forge with our clients, another rewarding aspect of having my firm is being able to engage in the community. We recently delivered coffee and doughnuts to the staff at the Georgia Center for Child
