Thank You Patti

Thank You Patti For helping me for the past 10 months :)

-Bruce Engebretson Jr


First of all, Thank you Patti Garner for your expertise in handling my divorce. I had probably 20 friends ask me if I realized my husband had hired the toughest, meanest attorney in Sumner County to represent him. My response yes but I have an attorney that can hold her own. Because of my attorney, I will be in fine shape. She is AMAZING!. If you need an attorney contact Patti Garner. She goes up against the meanest and WINS for you.

-Sonja Maxwell

Outstanding Attorney

Thank you for restoring my faith in legal counsel. You are an outstanding attorney and I highly recommend you to anyone who is in need of legal services. It is so reassuring to know that you are looking at your clients as people in need and not as just another customer. You truly care and you are so good at what you do. I have never encountered an attorney as honest, knowledgable, professional and caring as you. Ah, if there could only be more like you. I am sincerely grateful for all that you have done for our family. Thank you, again.

-Mary Thomas

Patient, Knowing and Informative

An outstanding finish! Thank you, Patti B. Garner,

Now that the adoption is final, we want to let you know how very grateful and pleased we are with all you did to help us. This was a long and uphill climb. Navigating the juvenile court system requires finesse, patience and resolve. You have these traits and more.

In all of our discussions, you were kind and patient, knowing and informative. But in the courtroom, when and where it mattered, you were a tiger, and you fought our battles with the same fierce determination as we would have fought them ourselves. I was in awe when you began your cross examination. It was obvious that our advocacy was your primary concern.

It is no wonder that you are so well respected in the community, and that yours was the first name to come up when we were seeking council and asking those who work this system everyday who we should obtain be our representative in this matter. Your professionalism and determination were apparent throughout the course of this case, and our success only proves we were right to choose you to represent our family.

Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for making our family, your priority.

Professionalism and Committment

Thank you so much PATTI B. GARNER!

My divorce is final and I am so so so thankful for you! You are one in a million!

A divorce is a horrible thing to go through (especially when a child is involved) but I am SO thankful I chose you to represent me! My outcome was better than I imagined or hoped it could be. Your skills in and out of the courtroom are phenomenal . You listened to me, promptly returned my phone calls, gave very wise advice, and did a great job of preparing me for the trial and fighting for me during the trial.

When I talk to others about the outcome of my divorce, especially the parenting plan, they are absolutely amazed. They are simply stunned when I go on to describe your work ethic, professionalism, and committment to serving your clients.

During this holiday season as I spent time with my little boy I realized that you not only fought for me... but you fought for him too. The time he and I have together is so precious and I know how hard you worked to make it happen.

THANK YOU PATTI B. GARNER for fighting for us! You are THE best and we thank God for you!!!!

Angel Practicing Law Here on Earth!

Simply put, Patti Garner is an Angel practicing law here on earth!

Many of us can count using one finger, the number of times we have been in a legal situation. When that time comes, the services that Ms. Garner and her incredible staff (Angie) provide, is like " a coat from the cold". Her attention to your cases details, her professionalism, and more important her ability to take what is personally a traumatic experience and make it palatable, lets one rest at night, knowing she is your attorney. You are NOT treated as just "another case", you are treated like a member of her family. Ms. Garner takes the time to understand the legal and more importantly, the emotional and human aspects of your situation. She then helps guide you through the legal mazes of the law, your rights, and how best to proceed. Her support staff is second to none! Your calls/emails are returned quickly, so you always know where your case is at. The majority of us have all seen the TV lawyers, Perry Mason and Ben Matlock, combine these into one and you have Ms. Garner.

A crack jack barrister, a true moral person, and a new friend for life!

Wise Counsel


My case is pending but I am confident in your skills and abilities and believe I will have a wonderful outcome.

Your wise counsel, knowledge of the law, ability to understand the heart of a parent, and willingness to empathize with one going through the pain of a divorce sets you far apart from many other lawyers. Your zeal for winning a legal fight is recognized and appreciated more than perhaps you could ever know.

You are the best investment I've ever made.

Thank you so very much


Wonderful Attorney

Ms. Garner, you are a wonderful attorney... I am eternally grateful... for all the hard work and dedication you put into my case. I realize the situation in which took the case was not an easy one, since you did not represent me from the start. Even with this challenge you put together a solid case. I am so happy I chose you to represent me for the final trial . I could not have asked for a better outcome...


Great Skill and Intelligence

I am so grateful for your representation of my sister and her children in court. You were the key ingredient in making things work favorably for her. In conjuction with great skill and intelligence, you are an attorney to truly empathize with your clients and defend their story. Thank you for your commitment and dedication to justice.

Fought for Us

Normally, I try to steer clear of lawyers -- in my experiences, they talk a good game but only care about their payday ... more than the outcome.
Patti Garner, in my opinion, went above and beyond the call of duty when my wife and I were her client. She fought for us and was successful and did so without going crazy with the billing.
Most definitely, I believe we more than got our money's worth! If I needed her services again, she'd be my first call.

-Mark Noyes

Above and Beyond

We have used Patti twice now for 2 different situations.
She went above and beyond as well as did her staff.
Highly recommend.

-Ellis Family

Exceptional to Work With

Patti and her team have been exceptional to work with. They are always professional, prompt in returning calls, and get the best results possible. She is well worth the money that you invest and works her hardest to ensure that you are well informed of every aspect of the legal process as well as all the potential outcomes. I would gladly hire her over and over again for any family law related matters.

-Tonya Zimmerman

Professional, Informative, and Knowledgeable

A HUGE Shout out to Patti and her team, they have been so helpful during this grueling process. Not only have they been professional, informative, and knowledgeable but they have been kind and caring! I highly recommend this firm for all of your legal needs.

-Penney Rudicil

Patti and her staff are amazing! I couldn’t be happier with her honesty and professionalism with my cases. Thank you Patti!

-Jamie Cardle

Went Above the Call of Duty

Patti and her office staff were a tremendous help in getting a case settled for a family member. She was very professional and stern during court proceedings involving the case. I would definitely recommend Patti to anyone needing to settle a divorce/child custody issue. We feel that Patti went above the call of duty in representing my family member.

-Barbara Balsbaugh

Caring, Compassionate, Dedicated

I have retained Patti for 3 separate matters over the course of 9 years. Her and her staff are always very professional. Patti has always accomplished all of the goals I had set out to obtain while in court. Patti and her staff always kept me informed as to the progress of my case and always answered all my questions and concerns. She has gone above and beyond what a normal attorney would do. She has accomplished things that other attorneys said were impossible. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a caring, compassionate, dedicated and hard working attorney!

-Sara Hutcheson

Great Understanding

great understanding of our situation and a calm ear to help us get the best results. knew the law and worked great with the other attorneys for the other side. my personal stress level was lessened with her on my team

-Randy McCullough

Cared for My Family

Solid lawyer. Cared for my family and our quality of life. Without her advice and direction the outcome would be vastly different. She and her team are top notch. I've learned to trust her with my life and my child's. she was understanding and pointed out what was in the best interest of the child 1st.

-Dennis B

She Is as Kind as She Is Competent

There are not enough words to describe how fortunate I was to have found Patti when I was in the toughest time of my life. I needed HELP in dealing with a calculating and vindictive ex-spouse in a very complicated situation. So complicated, that attorney after attorney would not, or simply could not help me. Patti took my case, and was unflappable during challenges and assaults (often on her character) and even seemed to get stronger as the going got tougher. Those are qualities rarely seen in friends.... let alone lawyers. Patti Garner proved to me to be the best at both. I will never be able to thank her for all she did. She is as kind as she is competent; big-hearted as she is bold; and funny as she is fearless.
Thank you, Patti Garner.
Whew! What a ride, huh?

-Kim Alexander

Honest and Upfront

-Christy Hobson

Definitely Recommend

I wouldn't have chosen any other attorney, her staff always answered all my questions in my long process. Would definitely recommend her to others.

-Diana Gonzalez

Easy to Work With

I have used Patti for child custody issues, and she represented me in a a divorse case. She was always up front and easy to work with. Im confident that I ended up with best possible outcome because I had Patti for council. I highly recommend her.

-Daniel Balsbaugh
