Although everyone has different work styles, Pat has found that managing time efficiently, making great connections and consistently marketing yourself to get your name out there has been crucial to his success. “Also, it might go without saying, but you have to develop yourself as a lawyer,” said Pat. “You have to have the skills and experience that give you credibility when you are marketing yourself and your firm to others.”
