Patrick practices exclusively in wills and estates and has represented clients in contested estates matters such as family provision applications and will construction suits as well as uncontested matters including probate applications, superannuation claims and estate administration.
Before joining Armstrong Legal, Patrick worked for a corporate and commercial law firm in Sydney and US corporate law firms in Asia. While at law school, he was among the first group of students in Sydney to pioneer an organisation seeking to exonerate cases of wrongful criminal conviction in Australia.
Prior to pursuing a career in law, Patrick majored in art history at Williams College in western Massachusetts. He has interned at art museums in both the USA and Australia and has particular interest for Modern European painting.
Patrick speaks Mandarin and, in his free time, works on improving his written Chinese skills. He also sails competitively outside of work.
Patrick Lin made the difficult process so much easier by explaining every step of the process and being accessible when I needed to make contact, in some cases after hours. He took the time to understand my situation and gave advise accordingly. Because of the nature of the case he showed understanding and empathy when I was most stressed.
I’d just like to say thank you and how grateful I am for the way in which Patrick conducted himself throughout my contesting of my mother’s Will.
Patrick showed genuine care and compassion toward my wellbeing and mental state during the whole time.
Patrick always explained things so I could easily understand the process and why, and the legal terminology so it wasn’t a jumble of crazy words that I had to try and make sense of.
He walked with me through the process step by step making the journey easier.
Patrick handled our matter with complete care and professionalism whilst being compassionate and understanding. Even though ours was a relatively small estate he gave it his full attention and we always felt in the loop.
I would recommend your company to others and especially tell them to ask for Patrick to handle their matter. Patrick at all times was professional, friendly, took a keen interest in my case and in helping me any time I had a concern or problem. I think he makes a very good addition to your team and would use his services again if needed.
Firstly, to the staff secretaries answering my queries. I was treated with warm regard and prompt service, never forgotten when an answer could not be given or, I could not be put through to Mr Lin immediately. They were always polite and instilled a sense of confidence.
Secondly, assisting counsel was always prompt and helpful. Lastly, I cannot recommend my experience with Mr Lin highly enough as he showed me respect, compassion and listened. From the very beginning, he represented what justice should be and fought for what I believed was right and just. He showed the utmost of diligence, genuine care and worked through each battle we faced with specific knowledge. When we did not have answers, Mr Lin rightly consulted superiors and specialists that helped greatly with crucial decisions.
I wish Mr Lin a long and distinguished career and thank him greatly for his expert services.
Patrick was wonderful very friendly and down to earth. He made you feel comfortable and explained everything clearly and not in jargon which is really important when dealing the public.
I would recommend him to anyone that needed his services.
Patrick was very professional, very efficient and caring towards my case. I was going through a difficult time in my life and Patrick basically took all the stress away in regard to my succession legal matter. I will always highly recommend Legal Armstrong's and Patrick's legal services in the future. I thank you for the discount that was offered and not requested from myself. Again thank you for all your services and a special thankyou to Patrick.
I am very happy with the service of Armstrong legal and everyone who worked on behalf thank you. I would particularly like to mention Patrick Lin who handled my case from the first phone call through to settlement. He kept me informed, sometimes daily and I think he worked hard for my case. I think Patrick has a very good approach to his clients through his personality and his professional dealings in his work. I think he would be an asset to anyone he worked with. I wish him all the best in his future plans. It was nice to meet you Patrick.
I was diagnosed with brain cancer just before my father died. My father left a highly contentious will and as the executor, with a serious illness, I needed a law firm that would take on the burden of administration. I didn't trust the law firm my father employed to provide an honest service, I therefore went on line to find that very firm I could trust. I found Armstrong Legal, enquired about their services and was put in contact with Mr Lin of the firms Contested Wills team. From the very beginning Mr Lin was polite, empathic, listened and asked questions about my situation and my families and was compassionate and reassuring. Over the course of the next 10 months Mr Lin worked hard for what I believed to be right and just, and whilst I was off the mark with what I thought to be so, Mr Lin took this into account, advised me of what the law saw to be right and just. Because of this advice I saved much in fees, and where I thought we needed more information on a matter, Mr Lin rightfully referred to seniors and specialists in the field of contested estates. Had I not had Mr Lin fighting for me, I believe I would have spent a great deal of not just money, but emotional energy that I did not have whilst I was going through the rigors of cancer treatment. I greatly thank Mr Lin and the excellent team at Armstrong Legal for their wonderful service, and I wish Mr Lin a long and distinguished career.
