“We wish we had found Patrick and the Braun team sooner! We continue to rely on their creative solutions. Without reservation, we recommend Patrick and his ability to resolve disputes to protect our Texas ranchlands.” Elizabeth and John Hawley, Taylor Properties

“Patrick’s special knowledge and professionalism was impressive through out this whole process. Should any of my cronies need his help, I’ll certainly send them Patrick’s way. Sure was good to find another “kid” raised in Parmer County and Friona back in the good old days!” Alan R. Zeman, Zeman Family Limited Partnership
