Integrity, intelligence, skillful, honest, with a maverick twist to law is the best way to present Attorney Patrick Mayerbock. Growing up on the Northwest side of Chicago introduced Patrick to a front row seat to an upbringing where hard work truly pays off. Patrick was raised as a devout catholic; his parents spent their last pennies to ensure all their children were able to have a catholic education from elementary school through high school. Once Patrick was old enough, he knew what it was like to work to carry his weight and help out, while also maintaining above a 4.0 GPA. Patrick prides himself on his upbringing, as it taught him values you cannot learn in a textbook. Throughout his high school and college years, he earned several academic scholarships. He witnessed his parents working hard in blue-collar professions to provide for a family, while also having family and family friends who worked in white collar professions providing him guidance as well. It was his background that allowed him to approach law with the understanding of smaller businesses grinding to make it, as well as the knowledge and confidence to also assist multi-million-dollar businesses in expansion and more.
After graduating from St. Edward Grammar School and St. Patrick High School on Chicago’s Northwest side, Patrick went on to earn his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, where he maintained a full academic scholarship throughout his tenure. Don’t be mistaken though, this 6 foot 4 inch man loved his all American football as well. He made a difficult decision to end playing football to further his academics. Most would say this was a wise choice for Patrick, as he earned several scholarships to help his journey.
