Patrick J. Cassady

Winter Park, Florida

Patrick was born in Orlando, Florida. He received both his undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Business Administration, and his law degree with Dean's List and pro bono honors, from the University of Florida.

While attending law school, Patrick clerked for a boutique plaintiff's law firm that specializes in medical malpractice and personal injury actions. The opportunity gave him invaluable insight into plaintiff strategies, allowing him to navigate their tickets and obtain optimal outcomes for healthcare providers.

Upon graduating from law school, Patrick worked as an assistant public defender in the Office of the Public Defender, 9th Judicial Circuit. While there, he advocated for hundreds of indigent clients on criminal charges ranging from low-level misdemeanors to violent felony offenses and gained extensive litigation experience conducting jury trials, appeals, evidentiary hearings, motion practice and depositions.

Patrick joined Adams Hall Schieffelin & Smith in 2019. His practice is devoted primarily to medical malpractice litigation.
