Comment: I am from out of town and needed a lawyer for the first time. Patrick made the experience so much easier and reassured me that I would be ok. He got the court to allow me to attend through zoom so I didnt have to miss work to travel and then got the charges dropped to just fees. Highly recommend!

Comment: Patrick Fragel, is an amazing attorney. He truly cares about his clients and takes care of them throughout the entire judicial process. He will keep you up-to-date with everything and tell you what you need to do on your end.I was charged with 5 felonies and two misdemeanors, and Patrick was able to get my charges reduced to 2 Misdemeanors.I am very grateful for his services because, he was able to get me the help I needed to quit drinking when I was dealing with my alcoholism at its peak.Also, I am able to be home for the holidays and be present for the birth of my newborn baby.I would definitely recommend hiring him.

Comment: Words cannot describe how grateful and appreciative I am of Mr. Fragel and his team. I am a US Immigrant and just when I thought all was over for me, Mr. Fragel really put his best foot forward and was able to get me the best outcome possible in my case. He is a very kind, personable and an understanding man. He does a fantastic job at evaluating and analyzing situations in order to put together an outstanding defense. Would I recommend using Mr. Fragel as your lawyer? ABSOLUTELY!!I do not intend to get in trouble with the law again but should anyone come to me for a criminal lawyer recommendation, this is the man!! Thank you so much for everything you have done for me. I have my freedom back!!

Comment: Mr. Fragel represented my case with ease. From the beginning when I called his office, he was out of town. He promptly called me back the night of, after a long flight home just off the plane. He kindly guided me along with the best recommendations, and offered assurance. I followed through with my word of completing my requirements before sentencing. I received a much smaller charges, and fines. NO possibility of my original punishments were in place, probation was dropped down to 3 months instead of 12. I walked out a better person, and couldn’t thank him or his amazing wife Robyn more. Thank you!

Comment: If you are considering Pat Fragel to represent you, just hire him NOW! You’ll be met with representation that is unmatched. I was facing a 4 year felony, Pat and Robyn’s efforts/dedication would lead you to believe they were facing that jail time as well. As we got closer to trial he met with me to go over every single detail of my case. Pat’s competitiveness really showed in trial, he worked tirelessly in the days leading up to it and it all paid off. He once said to me that he doesn’t like to lose and trust me it shows, he gave me my life and career back and I’ll forever be grateful for him and Robyn.

Comment: I found myself in a position of a financial mess. Mr. Fragel was a referral from a friends mother. I called to schedule an appointment with Mrs. Fragel, and after hearing my story got me an appointment within a couple days. I was so nervous. Id never had tohire an attorney before. Mr. Fragel instantly made me comfortable, when I really felt like a loser. Today was my final visit with them both, and the first day in many months that I could breathe. Mr. Fragel comes highly recommended and I am very grateful.

Comment: I hired Patrick to help my adult child through a felony charge and subsequently a probation violation. Both potentially carry significant jail time.Firstly, showing up to court without an attorney is a sure fire way to ensure a bad outcome. Patrick knows the law and just as important, the legal system. He is personally known and respected by the legal community in Traverse City.In our case, the felony charge was reduced to a misdemeanor and the probation violation charges were dropped completely. This is an incredible outcome only achievable through Patricks personal engagement with me, my daughter, the crown prosecutor and the judge in our case.Patricks rates were incredibly fair and were so thankful for for his support.I urge anyone considering legal support to reach out to Patrick directly for a consultation. Hes incredibly responsive and attentive. Hell tell you like it is and work with you to optimize the outcome in your court case.

Comment: I couldn’t be happier with Attorney Fragel. Like anyone who has just been arrested I was beyond stressed out. Still managed to make me laugh and give me great advice. Legally and not legally. I felt very comfortable and informed about my case due to him. I have not been in much legal trouble so I had no idea what was going on. I was charged with multiple felonies which he got dropped down to misdemeanors and no jail time. I honestly don’t know how he did it lol. 10/10 recommend.

Comment: Highly recommend Patrick! His wife, Robyn & him were a great team to work with and very accommodating considering I lived almost 4 hours away. He without a doubt can get the job done, he goes above & beyond!After my first offense OWI charge with a very high BAC level, he was able to wrap my pre trial and sentencing up into one court hearing avoiding me making multiple trips to hearings. He worked around the clock the whole day of my pre trial to make it all possible. Getting my OWI dismissed for a careless driving & impeding traffic... in most cases you’re lucky enough to get it lowered to Impaired driving facing probation, license restrictions, etc. I couldn’t believe how great the outcome ended up being, thanks to Patrick!!!If you ever find yourself needing an educated, confident lawyer- skip wasting time searching and contact Patrick S. Fragel, Attorney at Law.I cannot thank you guys enough for your outstanding work in my case!!!

Comment: Patrick did an outstanding job defending me in a DUI case in Gaylord. He came prepared and spent time preparing me for what to expect in court, Patrick also made sure I had all information the court would request to give us the best possible case. The outcome was extremely favorable for me (no jail) (no probation), if you find yourself in a similar situation (DUI) Mr. Fragel should be the attorney you call.

Comment: Patrick Fragel helped me termendously through a 2 felonies conviction that held a 25yr maximum combined. I walked away with a year probation, 1 felony dropped and an opportunity to have my felony dismissed. Him and Robyn (his wife) were prompt to help, answered all my questions and kept great communication throughout the case. I live out of state and they worked diligently to help me without making me fly back and forth endless times. Patrick is very knowledgeable as well as an easy to get along with and he clearly cares about his clients and the outcome of the case. I would refer him to anyone in trouble in NW Michigan. He did great.

Comment: I highly recommend Patrick! Ive hired him twice in the past 3 years once in 2015 and just finished in 2018. Both cases involved my teenagers making bad choices. First one was facing 10 years and received probation, community service, counseling, fines and a 1 year misdemeanor on his record which is now expunged. Second was facing multiple charges driving without a license, no registration, leaving scene of accident and a marijuana charge. Also got an MIP while out on bond for the first charges. Received 1 year probation and 100$ fine and is able to get his license. Patrick actively taught my children the law and firmly encouraged them to stop the behavior that got them in trouble in the first place which I greatly appreciated. He was always available for questions and worked with our finances. My sons quote Thank you for helping me and my family through this hard time and your patience with me as I made mistakes in life. Thank you!!! If your teen made bad choices and you need help call Patrick Fragel!

He helped me understand the things I did not and gave good advice along the way. He always followed my wishes and fought very hard on my behalf. He also has wonderful help in his office with Robyn assisting with all urgent needs. I would hire him again in a heart beat. 10/10 would recommend

Comment: Mr. And Mrs. Patrick S Fragel helped me through a life changing nightmare. I was facing 10-15 felony charge and they fought to defend me and eventually the case itself was dismissed. If it werent for them with their hard work and dedication I would be sitting in the pen and would have lost my wife and children. Im very thankful for what they did for me. Truly a life changing event could have ruined me but they were there to get me and my family through to the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you so very much!

Comment: I first called Mr Fragel at 4:30 on a Friday in July. What a surprise when he called me back within the hour. We talked for a while, then he agreed to meet us on Sunday afternoon. I was shocked but also felt he was a fighter. Mr Fragel answered all our questions and returned calls, kept us informed about the case, researched options, and did not back down in court. We knew it was a messy case but his willingness to work with us made it easier. He made us feel that he took the case personal and stayed in contact even past the final court date. I have and will again recommend him when someone needs a good lawyer. Karen

Comment: Patrick is a great lawyer and I highly recommend him! He helped me when I found out I had a warrant and wanted to turn myself in, I found out I had more warrants and he also helped with those free of charge! Ive been in trouble before and have a record so I was looking at jail time for a probation violation.Patrick was able to get me another chance with probation instead of jail time and then when we went in for sentencing the Judge let me go with no jail time no probation no nothing thanks to Patricks hard work. He was very kind, open and honest and was a pleasure to work with. If I ever need a lawyer again I will be calling him! Thanks for everything Patrick, you rock!!

Being nervous with never having a criminal charge, Patrick made my experience very smooth resulting in the case against me being dropped! Patrick you are the man, I can’t thank you enough, and Robyn thank you for always getting back to me with any worries I may have had.

Comment: We were referred to Patrick from a friend and it was the best decision we made for our family. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer all of our questions without making us feel silly for asking them. He also took the time to explain why a Chapter 13 would be more beneficial for us in the long run than the Chapter 7 we were thinking we wanted to file. He also never made us feel less than for having to file bankruptcy. We are in our third year of five to complete our Chapter 13 and I have called him several times over the years with questions and issues that have come up and he has always got back to me right away and have resolved the problem and put our minds to ease. I would highly recommend Patrick to anyone who is thinking about filing a bankruptcy knowing that he will give them great information and recommendations without any pressure on what to do. Dawn

Comment: The first impression of Patrick and Robyn was courteous and promptness. Robyn got all the details and explained all the fees from the start. Although the situation was quite intimidating, having never been charged with a crime before, Patrick was not intimidating. His demeanor was professional and relaxed. He was thorough with his investigation of fact finding. Without the expertise of Patrick, the experience of defending my innocence would have been very difficult. The case was dismissed!!!

Comment: Patrick and Robyn were great! I called them to help me when I got in trouble in Michigan. I live 8 hrs from there. They did everything they could to help me out and great communication. Patrick got it to where I only had to come back to court once not multiple trips. I would recommend the Fragels again and would call him again if needed but hopefully not. Thanks again for the help!

Comment: I Came to Patrick Fragel in a bad situation facing a felony charge and feeling like I was going to lose everything I have worked for. He reviewed my case and he said he would do his best to get me the best possible outcome but that it was going to be tough.Well in the end he pulled of an outcome that even the judge stated on record that was unheard of.He is a lawyer that is truly working for your best interest.

Comment: Mr. Fragel is an amazing attorney! He and everyone at his office went above and beyond to work my case and help me through all court proceedings. He answered every one of my calls and texts no matter what day or time I contacted him. Mr. Fragel went out of his way to make sure I knew exactly what was happening with my case every step of the way and that all my questions were answered. The outcome of my court case ended the very best way it could have. He is a miracle worker and I will definitely hire him again in the future for any legal matters that may arise. I highly recommend Mr. Fragel.

Comment: What is one of the worst things you can imagine doing if you heard you were accused of a CSC case and you knew you were innocent? Hearing 25 years to life in itself is absolutely add on finding an honest lawyer that will fight for you and your innocence without hesitation. This is not an easy task, especially when you dont have a ton of money to hand over to a law firm. We found Patrick and Robyn by reading their stellar reviews on Google. Its always a gamble, but he seemed like the way to go. We are down state and needed a lawyer in the local area up state to represent my fiance. We needed someone quickly. We made the appointment with them and came into their office absolutely panicked. He went through the process with us until we fully understood all of the possible outcomes and all of our options. We left his office confident but still knowing it could be a long process. Throughout our lengthy case, Patrick was able to find so many holes in the prosecutions arguments that they had no chance of winning. The police station that initially interviewed my fiance did not do their job properly. They wound up with a confession that was never meant to be a confession. Patrick quickly saw that they did not legally have a confession and stood his ground. The interview/confession wound up thrown out. Not only that, but the whole police department had to be retrained on the proper way to interrogate a suspect. Patrick used his impeccable knowledge of the law, history of being a prosecuting attorney, his down to earth but no nonsense attitude and plain common sense to leave the jury with NO CHOICE but to find him NOT GUILTY. The reviews we read, and even this one, cant possibly do his office justice. I honestly dont believe you could get any better representation. They genuinely care about you as a person. You are not just a client. You are NOT just another case bringing in money, no matter the verdict. If you are looking for someone who will fight for you and be 100% honest with you on their outlook of your case, look no further. Patrick and his office manager Robyn are your pair. Thank you Patrick and Robyn, for everything. You are both AMAZING!!

Comment: Mr.Fragel is AMAZING! He is super understanding and takes the time to sit down and listen to your situation. He always explains everything about your Bankruptys in great detail so you understand everything you need to do and what is going to happen step by step. I will be recommending him to anyone who needs a Bankruptys lawyer. Mr. and Mrs. Fragel are probably 2 of the nicest poeple I have ever had the pleasure of meeting and doing business with. I couldent of asked for a better lawyer!

Comment: Patrick Fragel is an awesome attorney. He really took the time to care for my case and made sure he fought hard for my innocence. He was confident, persistent and he always kept me informed of the next step so I always felt one step ahead of the game. He really gave me what I paid for and is one of the most persistent and personable lawyers Ive ever had/met. I appreciate all the time and effort he put into my case and it really made me feel confident that he was really down to fight in my defense and Im beyond proud and grateful that he did! Not guilty verdict and I couldnt be anymore thankful. We went to war and won. Great attorney who I would recommend to anyone I knew in need of one.

Comment: Patrick was very helpful and worked hard to take care or my charges. He guided me through the process and never lead me in the wrong direction or promised me anything he couldnt guarantee. He always informed me of the consequences that I couldve faced and made sure I understood what could happen to me. He worked hard to make sure I wouldnt face the full consequences in front of me. We toughed it out and his hard work paid off for me. I highly recommend him as a defense attorney to anyone in need of one!

Comment: Being from grand rapids area, it was very inconvienent to address a pair of misdemeanors including a possession charge in kalkaska county. Being only a first offense, Patrick helped work with the prosecuting attorney and the judge to get me a deffered sentence of 1 year probation with by mail reporting, no license suspension, no jail time, had my second charge dismissed, and were fortunate enough to have it all cut in a single trip back to the courthouse. He had even taken a sizeable amount off his retainer for meafter it was all said and done since it all was done in one day. I would definitely recommend his firm to anybody seeking criminal defense in the Northern Michigan area

Comment: I got caught with a case up in the UP for small drug charge. Searched the internet for hours and hours trying to find the best lawyer. I came across Mr. Fragel. After reviewing his google reviews, I decided to give him a call. When I called, he got right on the phone and I spoke to him for about an hour about my case. After the phone call I was sold on Mr. Fragel. The other positive reviews on google are not lies. This guy knows his stuff. He is professional, patient, understanding and a great lawyer. He got my charge reduced to a simple disorderly conduct and all I got was fees and costs. He negotiated me a great deal with the prosecutors office. I was facing up to a year with this very very tough judge up there and I didnt even get one day of probation. His assistant Robyn is one of a kind as well. She always answered my questions in a timely matter and they both stayed on top of my case. They both showed me they cared about me and I was just not another client to them. If your looking for a great attorney. Look no further, Mr Fragel is the man! 5 STARS for Mr. Fragel. Thank you again for all your help!!!

It was almost 5pm and i lived an hour away and they told me to come right over. They stayed after hours to assist me with the situation i had. He was kind and caring, fast and efficient. I would recommend him to represent me or anyone I know. Thank you Attorney Fragel and Robyn.

Comment: I contacted Patrick after finding his firm online and reading reviews from previous clients. Dealing with the court and legal system is extremely stressful. The average person doesnt know or even understand the complexity thats involved in navigating through todays court system? What should I plead, what are the consequences of my plea, how does my record affect my situation, will I go to jail, will I lose my job, how will my family be affected, are my friends going to find out, how much money is this going to cost me,...etc.Having an experienced Lawyer on your side, that you can trust, and who is looking out for your best interest is invaluable to say the least. I can not say enough good things about Mr. Patrick Fragel and his law firm. Patrick was upfront and forthright on everything. Even though its not always about the money, his price was more then fair.When it came time to deal with the court, he took control. We talked prior to going in and Patrick told me all the possible outcomes that this case could take. He instructed me and told me what we would do at each turn, what we would say and when we would say it. It played out exactly as he laid it out. Patrick made all the right moves at exactly the right times. Watching him navigate us through it was like watching Bobby Fischer dominate a chess game.My case ended with the BEST possible outcome that I could have ever imagined. Patricks knowledge of the law was second to none. Again, I cant say enough nice things about him and his law firm. I couldnt even imagine what possible outcomes I could have had without his support - Thank You So Much Patrick!!

Comment: I was being investigated for something that I had not done. Patrick was highly referred to me by a friend. I was nervous to higher an attorney that I didnt know or have used in the past. I read the reviews and seeing that he had experience as prosecutor made the decision that much easier. Hiring Patrick was one of the best decisions I have ever made! Not only is he a genius when it comes to the law, he is familiar with the process prosecutors take when building cases. About four weeks after hiring Patrick, he got the case against me dropped. I am forever grateful that Patrick was there to help me through everything. I hope that I never need to hire another attorney but if I do Patrick will be the first person I call.Thanks again Patrick for all the help.

Comment: I was looking for a lawyer to help me with my bankruptcy and i found Mr. Fragel. Very professional, but yet nice, treated us like we mattered. Then in 2014 i got a hold of Patrick to help me get my license back, and he did do that for me. I eventually got it back two years later but it was well worth getting him to help me i couldnt have gotten back without him. He is the type of lawyer that treats you like family, I didnt feel like i was beneath him just because he had a degree. He is the best! Thanks Patrick for everything. Dawn DePeel.

Comment: I would recommend Mr. Patrick Fragel to anyone needing legal help. He recently defended our daughter’s DUI case - initially a very stressful time for everyone involved. Mr. Fragel was very patient with our daughter and us, answering the many questions with professionalism and honesty, and yet with understanding of her situation. His follow up is perhaps his strength - returning every telephone call promptly throughout the process.If needed in the future, I would contract Mr. Fragel again for his legal advise and services, as I trust his expertise beyond defending DUI’s. His fee was fair and in line with other attorneys in the greater Traverse City area. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Comment: (I am writing a review on my daughters account.) I was in the middle of a contentious divorce under another attorney who wanted me to agree to everything my ex and his attorney were asking for, which meant putting everything up for sale that I owned. I came across Patrick Fragel, he encouraged me to fight for what I wanted and was entitled to. I ended up being able to keep my house, keep my vehicle and my camper, plus receive alimony...much better situation than I ever imagined. Thanks Pat, for a job well done!!

Comment: Patrick is a great lawyer who does the job he is hired for. He helped my family during a very difficult time and got off a family member without anything left on record. He took my call on a holiday and agreed to meet with me that day within a few hours. He did the best he could to resolve the issue at hand and I was pleased with his legal support. If you are honest and genuine that is what you will get from this man. I have never written a review in my life and I made it a point to go out of my way to write a review for a person who deserves it. Thanks Patrick! My family really appreciates your help.

Comment: I had a 4 yr prison max felony drug charge. Patrick not only got it down to a 1yr misdemeanor charge but got the thing deferred!! I sat no jail time at all and didnt even lose my drivers license. The charge will be removed from my record as soon as my 1 yr probation is over...of course there are hoops to jump thru.. urine tests, aa and court costs, but I am 100% satisfied with the results.. I will totally recommend him and will definitely use him again with any legal issues that I may have in the future. It was the best $2000 that Ive ever spent in my life...!

Comment: After researching lawyers in the area I was pleased to find Patrick. His website said not to wait until Monday and it wasnt a lie. I called Sunday afternoon and he met with me that evening. After reviewing my case and situation he provided excellent advice, and went to court with me. I have reviewed approximately 350 of his cases, and I must say that if you have an OWI/DUI or any criminal charges, he has an excellent track record for getting the charges dropped down to manageable infractions.Dont deal with a bully attorney who wont provide great service or pay $5,000 - call Patrick!

Comment: I contacted Patricks office when my son got arrested for shoplifting less than a month before he was scheduled to leave for military boot camp. We met with him and explained that the best outcome for us was for the case to be wrapped up in time for him to depart on schedule, but the judgement could not involve the military. He ended up getting the case dismissed, but my son was still dropped from the military because the dismissal DID involve the military. However, my son can still enlist after a 90 day wait (the recruiters lied to us- imagine that!). Long story short, the outcome was favorable for us and the cost was exactly what he quoted. All things considered, this case was handled quickly and efficiently and the outcome was just fine.

Comment: Patrick Fragel is a 5 star lawyer!!! I went to spend weekend up north and ended up with a drunk driving ticket. Its not the first or second time I had been in trouble. I was completely panicked and in an INCREDIBLE amount of trouble. I was so freaked out about what I had read on-line about a 3rd conviction and expected the worst case scenario!! I searched for a lawyer in the area where I was in trouble and found Fragel. I was able to immediately get in contact with him. He treated my case like it was an emergency that needed immediate attention. I of course thought this is how all lawyers act until they get your money, but was over the top pleased to find out that he is simply a great attorney!!! He dug deep and found a way to get me my life back. And if anyone reading this has been in a situation like mine than you will understand how very important it is to get this kind of Defense. My only advise if you do decide to use him, is to sit back and listen to what he and his assistant Robyn have to say. Let them do there job and I bet you will come out with the best scenario you can get. I hope that Ill never need him again. But I did learn over the years that there is a difference between average and above average. It was stupid to put myself in another bad situation but Im obviously very happy I got lucky with an above average lawyer!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment: Ive had many lawyers in the past 10 years that attempted to handle my very contentious case. However, Patrick Fragel is the first lawyer Ive ever had that has 110% advocated for me in my case. Never ever have I been more impressed! He is very knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and more than anything not about money first but rather actually cares about what hes fighting for in a case. A very rare quality indeed in lawyers! He is always willing to work within our budget. We have used him for several issues that arose and we have referred our family and friends to him and will continue to do so.
