Get to Know Patrick
As a product of a split household and divorced parents, Patrick understands how important it is to provide meaningful counsel during family law matters. His parents got divorced when he was just 12 years old, with both going on to remarry down the road. This allowed Patrick to get a first-hand experience of blended families and the legal issues that they face. Patrick’s stepparents brought children from previous marriages, creating a truly unique family experience for him. He provides an insightful level of support that clients can’t find at many other places, using his background experience with these issues to help in a personalized manner.
Patrick lives in St. Charles, Missouri and he enjoys golfing, cooking, and fly fishing. Patrick is a member of the Missouri Bar (Family Law Section), St. Louis County Bar Association, Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce, and a board member of Foundations of Love.
Attorney Patrick W. Pedano is licensed to practice in Missouri.
