About Christopher

Learn Christopher’s areas of practice.

I think I am a regular guy.  When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and our two kids, Watson and Lila.  I also enjoy deer hunting and am an avid Tennessee Volunteer fan.  


I really like practicing law and  especially enjoy being able to maintain a diverse practice.  Doing plaintiff and defense work makes me a better lawyer for all of my clients.  


We understand that nobody wants to be in a situaiton where they need a lawyer.  Our firm works hard to help people overcome the legal challenges they are facing and get back to living their lives.

Honest, Accountable, Excellent
Chris has helped me and my family over the years and has always been easy to work with, available, and always had our best interest in mind. I've never had to question advice he provided and am confident that anything he does is done correctly. I'd recommend Chris and Wiseman-Bray for any needs others may have.

Chris Patterson of Wiseman Bray
I hired Chris and his firm to lay out and design my estate plan, my father's estate plan, as well as create a business entity for our farm. Chris and team were fantastic and designed all to meet our needs. In addition, he and team were very professional and responsive to all of my questions and concerns. I would highly recommend Chris for any legal need I have.

Understands more than just the law
Chris has helped me maneuver through a maze of accusations and false narratives from a former employer and the employer’s bank who have attempted to paint me unfairly and unjustly with innuendo and false facts. His guidance and help have allowed me to retain my reputation without resulting to costly and time consuming litigation by helping me focus on what was important and achievable. Chris understands and communicates not only reality of the legal issues, but the economic considerations as well. With Chris’s help my family has been given the opportunity to resume or lives.

We hired Chris Patterson and the Wiseman Bray Law Firm to represent us in litigation concerning a family trust. Chris is very ethical, of excellent character, dependable, diligent in his knowledge of the law, and very hard working. I was impressed by his honesty and well thought out advice. This case required timely, strong legal responses which he did not waver from. Chris and his colleagues kept us completely informed, even by calling immediately after a court hearing. Whenever I had questions, the responses were always in a timely manner. During his meetings with us, Chris explained in detail what was taking place, what the laws says and what could or should happen. Since this case involved the dynamics of family, Chris was able to help us put aside some painful hurts to guide us in making some tough decisions. He was compassionate, understanding, and down to earth as he helped us make the best honest decision for our situation. He was very easy to talk to. There was a wealth of wisdom from past litigations that he shared with us that also helped confirm to us we were making the right decision. Chris brought this case to a close helping to minimize our financial loses. The best part and our main goal was to save our parents estate, which he did. Also, it would make my parents very happy to know that the property they worked and sacrificed for many years is still in the family. A family member was able to purchase the farm. I highly recommend Chris Patterson and I am very grateful for how well Chris served us. I feel like we made a friend as well.

Knowledgeable and Driven Attorney
Chris Patterson was the most efficient attorney we have ever hired. After listening to our case he not only took our information but further researched our situation and uncovered more information that helped to solve and win our case. He was very aggressive when necessary and very professional when dealing with the opposition. Chris and his team come highly recommended and we will continue to use only their services when necessary. Whenever a legal matter arises in conversation I can't help but mention Chris and his firm - he is that good!
