Now in its 20th year, the 40 Under Forty list recognizes talented young attorneys who were nominated by their peers for their intelligence, passion, success and work in the community. Pat was selected from a pool of approximately 1,500 nominations of lawyers throughout Illinois.

Pat helps real estate investors and other clients accomplish their business objectives while navigating transactional and legal issues. In nominating Pat for the 40 Under Forty list, clients and peers noted that "Pat is a problem-solver and dealmaker. He works to craft solutions that are integral to the success of our business." They also recognized him in saying that "Pat has the ability to identify common grounds among disagreement, and then works purposefully to get everyone there in a way that advances his client's goals while keeping those of his counterparts intact."

Pat volunteers to prepare meals at the Ronald McDonald House connected with Lurie Children's Hospital and serves meals to homeless people through the PADS program. His family supports the Franciscan Alliance Foundation and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
