Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I represented a young man who was fired from a job as a custodian by a supervisor who used racial slurs in the process. The case was turning into a “he said she said” situation when the unexpected happened. The defense attorney presented a middle management supervisor for questioning to establish their non-discrimination policy. I finished my cross-examination with this question, “Does the defendant ever discriminate on the basis of race?” I turned from the podium to be seated at the counsel table, thinking I knew what the answer would be.

However, halfway back to the counsel table I heard the witness say, ... go to this link for more. Twelve Strangers

How did you build a successful practice?
We follow these rules of good service:

We communicate clearly. We keep our clients informed. We do not over charge. We listen to you. Click on this link to see the full ten reasons why our clients love us, you will not believe reason number ten. Ten Reasons Our Clients Love Us

What should clients look for in a lawyer?
We have always practiced law with the ideas that we are fighting for Justice and the interests of our clients. This is actually a requirement of the Rules of Professional Conduct which states that the lawyer must use reasonable diligence despite opposition, obstruction or personal inconvenience. We strive at Patton and Patton to represent our clients with commitment and dedication.

What information can you provide in a free phone consultation?
We provide a brief overview of the law and explain how we can help. Our lawyers are very experienced and friendly, and will encourage you to share your story. If we can help, we will arrange for you to sign the needed documents so we can start with your case. If your case is a personal injury claim these initial documents will usually include a contract for services, so we can start your case, and medical authorizations, so we can get your medical records.

What information do you need in a free phone consultation?
When you call our office the phone during office hours between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. will be answered by one of our friendly trained staff usually Michelle or Abby. We will ask you a few initial background questions, including your contact information. After these few initial questions, we will connect you with the attorney that is best to help you. This attorney will listen to you and ask questions to obtain essential facts including date, place, facts of the accident, witnesses, and names of the medical providers.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?
The most rewarding aspect is serving in a noble profession.

What are your other interests in addition to law?
Babysitting my grandkids. Babysitting, last Saturday, reminded me of the general practice of law. Here’s a brief of the legal issues dealt with this past Saturday night: 1. A mediation to decide proper method of constructing a tent of blankets draped over chairs in the living room 2. A title dispute to determine ownership of one favorite pink pillow 3. Establishing a priority lien and therefore rights of first refusal of the toothpaste 4. Accusations of misdemeanor theft of another favorite pillow, this one was blue 5. Investigating an assault and battery, committed against a wet toy creature, drying out in front of the fireplace, the potential defendant is my 4-year-old grandson, who bathed the innocent victim, without consent. We got through the evening without any other Personal Injury claims - Hallelujah.
