Mrs. Patterson has the worst business, and moral, ethics I have ever seen. She will not return phone calls. She will not answer opposing attorney's motions and she delays your case only to make more money. Unless you have money to throw away, do not hire her!
I was in search of a lawyer for a specific motion on contempt montion regarding my divorce. I was very specific with Ms. Patterson on what I needed, and what needed to be accomplished. She was more than happy to take my case based on my expectation, stating she would be able to follow through.
What I got was a total lake of communication from her and her team. I was specific that my best form of communication would be email. I would email her and her assitiant on pending updates and status, yet rarely heard back. I would have to leave messages with her, and still never heard back from her.
At one time, the oposing lawyer had submitted a proposal with a deadline. I was never informed of this submittal, and the deadline exceeded, thus the oposing lawyer assumed we were not interested in their counter proposal (I learned of this months later).
What Ms. Patterson lacked in deadlines, she clearly made up in billing cycles. Make no mistake she posted a monthly statement to me with billing hours which I had no idea what they were for.....When asked about those hours, she would get defiensive , siting how she has to do so much behind the scenes.
