Patricia Roma has been engaged in the general practice of law, with offices in Half Moon Bay, for over 35 years. While in recent years her practice has focused primarily on family law, estate planning, and general civil litigation, her background has encompassed these and many other areas, including personal injury and criminal defense. This varied background of practice areas has enabled Patricia to bring a diverse and creative approach to all of her cases. In addition to litigation, Patricia is also a mediator as well as a collaborative lawyer who is a member of IACP and the San Mateo Collaborative Practice Group.
