Civil, Criminal, and Family Law
I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. I attended local public schools as well as Miami-Dade College and Florida International University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Criminal Justice and then attended Nova Southeastern University where I received my Juris Doctorate.
The one question I get most often is why do I practice law?
I practice law because I enjoy the personal interaction associated with my cases. After a career in public service, helping people is second nature to me. The three areas of law I practice in, criminal defense, family and personal injury are areas that can have the most profound affect upon my clients lives. I enjoy working with my clients in creative ways to solve their legal issues. I love matching wits with an opposing counsel or prosecutor and there is nothing like the excitement of a trial. It is important to choose a lawyer suitable to you and your case, as such, I carefully choose the clients I represent. In the end, I want the best possible outcome for you.
Prior to entering private law practice, I was a homicide detective at the Miami-Dade Police Department. As a homicide detective, I was also a certified police instructor in the areas of DUI, accident reconstruction, laser and radar speed measurement, crime scene investigations. I am certified as an expert witness in several jurisdictions in the fields of radar, DUI and accident reconstructions.
In 2007, I opened the Law Offices of Patrick J. McGeehan, P.A. in downtown Miami.
My office is located within walking distance of the state and Federal Courthouses. I practice criminal defense, family law and personal injury law.
My practice is centered on close personal client contact.
Recently, I have gained national attention for the work I am doing in the area of Revenge Porn.
Revenge Porn is when a scorned lover posts pornographic images and personal identifying information such as the victim's name, address, phone number, email, work location and other details about the victim's daily life on the Internet.
I represent several Revenge Porn victims in the State of Florida. My law firm was the first in the State of Florida to file a civil law suit against my client's former boyfriend, websites, servers and web hosting companies.
You can read more about Revenge Porn in the media section of this website.
I also authored the chapter on accident reconstruction in Attorney Robert S. Reiff’s must have book, Drunk Driving & Related Vehicular Offenses, 5th Edition, Lexis Law Publishing Company.
If you’ve been arrested or investigated by a law enforcement agency, any state or Federal agency, having family law issues or were injured by someone’s negligence please call me for a legal consultation.
