Patrick Caffey earned his bachelors degree from Oklahoma State University (BA 1967) and his juris doctor degree from the University of Oklahoma (J.D. 1970).
After law school he served four years in the United States Army (CPT JAGC). The army brought him to Kansas where he has practiced law in Manhattan since 1974. He has been a prosecutor in municipal court, an assistant county attorney, and currently serves in a part-time capacity as Municipal Court Judge.
Patrick maintains an active civil law practice. Whether in divorce, probate, or landlord/tenant disputes, he strives to help his clients navigate the legal system for a fair fee. He believes an attorney should also strive to prevent problems for the client, not just try to solve problems after the fact. Whether by preparation of a contract, a lease, a will or trust, or by giving advice, Patrick believes a lawyer should have prevention of legal problems as a primary goal.
