PATRICK PRENDERGAST

Partner

Patrick comes from a family of attorneys, and he knew from the time he was a small boy that he intended to follow in the family footsteps. 

After graduating with honors from law school, Patrick accepted a job at the Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office where he gained invaluable courtroom experience. During his five years with the District Attorney’s Office, Patrick tried countless cases ranging from simple misdemeanors to capital murders. As the major felony prosecutor, Patrick prosecuted individuals for manslaughter and murder after they killed innocent motorists by driving while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. 

After leaving the District Attorney’s Office, Patrick joined a successful criminal law firm where he pursued an active defense trial practice for six years.

It has always been Patrick’s desire to help those injured through no fault of their own, and he is thrilled to be a part of the CWA team.

Patrick lives in Fairhope with his wife Erin, who is a nurse practitioner. They are active in their community and when not working they enjoy traveling, sports, and reading.

OUR CLIENTS US

“We highly recommend attorney Deepti Asthana for all your legal needs. She is competent, honest, trustworthy, and pleasant to be around. Her excellent negotiation skills and timely attention to detail set her apart. A real winner.”

- Leighton & Christine K.

“Caldwell Wenzel & Asthana were hired to handle the legal work associated with a desire to purchase a golf club. Drew and Deepti took a personal interest in the purchase, going far beyond just doing legal work. After 8 months of dealing with the owners–a Fortune 500 Company, Drew and Deepti won the war of attrition and the big corporation from the North threw in the towel. Not only did they become our attorneys for life but just as importantly, they became our friends!”

- Sam Strite, Treasurer, Glenlakes Golf Club, Inc.
