I started The Patterson Cozzo Law Firm to bring personalized attention to my clients.  After working for big law firms and having little to no interaction with clients, I knew that I wanted to have a more personal and transparent law practice that really helps people resolve the legal issues they are facing.  Whether you have been injured in an accident or charged with a traffic offense or DUI, your case will get the attention and outcome it and you deserve.

He helped me very much for a price that was so reasonable I thought he failed math
Scott handled a very complex and potentially devastating situation for me. The case went so smoothly with his help. Everything came out in my favor thanks to his brain power and wonderful demeanor.

Scott made a bad situation much...much better!
Scott Patterson is the best attorney I have ever worked with. He was kind, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. I had never needed a criminal defense lawyer before but I got arrested for a DUI and Scott got my charges reduced. In the end the money I paid Scott was well worth it!
