PATRICK S. McCROSKEY

Board Certified Specialist in Family Law

Asheville Divorce Lawyer

I am a Board Certified Specialist in Family Law and a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. I limit my practice to issues involving divorce, marital relations, and family law.  I serve other divorce lawyers by providing family financial mediation services to them and their clients.

Since 2007, I have been continuously recognized by Best Lawyers in America, and named the Family Law Lawyer of the Year for Asheville in 2015, 2017, and 2020.  I am named to North Carolina Super Lawyers master list since 2012, and was listed in their Rising Stars category in 2009 and 2010.  I am an AV Preeminent Peer Rated Lawyer by Martindale Hubbell since 2010 and have been included in the Business North Carolina Legal Elite in 2012, and continuously since 2014.

I have been asked by many people why I choose to practice in the area of family law and have often questioned this myself. The answer lies in the fact that when people come to me for assistance, they are often at a difficult crossroads in life, with choices to make that can dramatically alter their future. It is a time that I, as an attorney, can have a significant and positive impact on the life of that person and assist that client in moving forward toward a better future.

I am an outdoorsman and an extreme sports enthusiast. An admitted adrenaline junkie, I chose Asheville as home because of the pristine beauty and abundant natural resource it offers. Whenever humanly possible, I load up and head off to the great untamed to rope in my share of the wild side.
