Patrick Roberts is a highly rated, award-winning attorney, whose experience includes successfully handling complex criminal matters ranging from federal drug trafficking and serious sex crimes to 1st Degree Murder.
"I am a criminal defense attorney. I help solve problems for my clients and their families, fixing challenging situations under difficult circumstances. My job is to defend people who have been charged with crimes in state and federal courts across North Carolina and throughout the country - and it's a job I love. After spending several years as a prosecutor, I decided to start my own law firm in 2007, and I've been passionately defending the accused ever since.
"Each day, every day, I work tirelessly to master my craft and to better serve the people I represent.
"My job performance directly affects peoples' lives and I take pride in that. Success in criminal defense means changing lives by what I do on a daily basis. Solving problems is the work that I am best suited for. In college, I studied Chemical Engineering. It may not sound related, but that's where I discovered that I love solving problems. In my legal practice, I am solving problems every day for people, hunting for the best possible outcome based on all the facts and evidence at hand. I am passionate about this work and wouldn't trade it for anything else."
A Criminal Defense Lawyer Who Is Truly Dedicated to His Craft
"My role as a lawyer is to treat people with respect. You never know who might have an impact on the case. Being an "aggressive" criminal defense lawyer is much more than looking to negotiate a quick plea and making big claims about past results (even if those claims are true). I believe I can help people in need and deliver quality legal service to clients. There's nothing special about me just because I'm a lawyer. My job is to help and serve people. Period.
"To master my craft means sacrificing lots of time and energy to be the best I can be. I went to both the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College and the National Criminal Defense College. This was on top of law school at Duke University. These are selective, rigorous programs, with some of the best trial lawyers in the country. The total number of graduates from both programs is a very small number. I'll let that speak for itself."
