Our Team

Founder & Managing Attorney
The Founder and Principal Attorney at McNamara Law Firm, Patrick brings with him over eight years of dynamic experience in the practice of law. Admitted to practice in both Nebraska and New York, Patrick guides his staff and associates using solid legal skills and natural business acumen.  

Patrick began his legal career at a prominent commercial litigation firm in New York, where he represented national clients, including John Deere, Costco, and 1-800-FLOWERS.  From there, he began assisting clients with their wills, trusts and estates.  In his experience, Patrick soon came to realize a need for tailored and focused legal services geared to serving small businesses, individuals, and families. It was then that he decided to create McNamara Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O.

Patrick is actively involved in the Omaha community as a member of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, the Omaha Bar Association, and the Nebraska Bar Association.  He was the Secretary of the Executive Council of the Omaha Bar Association and the Editor of the Young Lawyers Page of the Nebraska Lawyer Magazine.  Patrick is also the president of the board of directors of his residential homeowners' association and served as the 2016 President of the Omaha Barristers' Club.

Originally from New York, Patrick has found a second home in Omaha with his wife, Katherine, who is an Omaha native, and also a litigation attorney at a prominent Omaha law firm.  In his free time, Patrick loves to golf and root for the New York Mets, Jets and Islanders.
