Great Lawyer
I have known Mr. Patton for close to 20 years, and he takes the time to understand my issue, proposes a course of action. He is usually available via text/email on the weekends. He has addressed and put issues I thought were a big deal down to size. He and his staff worked with me for the best solution, kept me in the loop, and then executed the plan. He is a really good lawyer. As recent as two weeks ago, Mr. Patton provided a solution to a real estate issue I had, and now that issue is resolved.

Professional, Courteous, and Prompt
Mr. Patton and his staff are very professional, courteous, and prompt. They were instrumental in drafting us some legal documents within hours for an urgent matter. They even worked with us over phone and email since we couldn't visit them in person due to COVID-19. We are very grateful for their services and would highly recommend them.

Helpful and thorough
Lee worked very hard to help me resolve my legal situation. He didn't mind my weekly calls or texts to ask for updates and was always courteous with me. He did everything he could and advised me through a stressful and delicate legal matter which could have had major negative implications on my life. He helped me immensely. I'm glad to have worked with Lee.

Lee is a “Great Attorney” . His persistence with my son’s C & I charge was reduced to a non moving violation . He never quit on his client once he understood the facts.

Thanks Lee Patton
He did a outstanding job with handling every part of my car accident. Him and his assistants were very helpful with any questions or concerns i may have had. He helped with my medical needs and all bills were processed through him. I had absolutely no worries or stress throughout my whole settlement.

PHENOMENAL
Mr. Patton was so amazing with my 1st case that I have and will call him for every legal issue I have from now on. He was so personable and understanding. Never passing judgment, and always being 100% honest with me. He got me the best plea deal possible for my case and made sure I understood exactly what was happening every step of the way. He always returned my calls and I never felt like my case was any less important to him than any other he was handling at the time. I'd also like to say his secretaries are equally as amazing. If I needed a quick answer or something emailed or faxed at that very moment, they did it, no questions asked, no attitude. I would recommend his practice to anyone and everyone. Just an all around amazing lawyer.

Trust Like Family
Lee's help with my accident completely passed my expectations! I was so stressed about everything and felt helpless against the "big guys" but Lee was my savior and took it upon himself to work out all the details. I really felt like I had someone on my side I could rely on and thank goodness I did!

"I endorse Lee. I know Lee to be intelligent, creative, caring and driven. These qualities make him a top notch trial lawyer."
Personal injury Attorney | Dec 21
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have spent over a decade practicing law -- during most of which I have felt like a misfit who chose the wrong profession. In a system that views people's suffering as a mere "asset," I spent much of my career feeling like perhaps I was too compassionate, that I cared about my clients too deeply. I met Lee last year at a seminar for trial lawyers. I instantly knew I had found a kindred spirit. Lee is a throwback to a time when law was practiced by real people, rather than cogs in a machine. His feeling and affection for the people he represents is obvious whenever he discusses their causes. I have never had the pleasure of working with Lee on a case and I don't know that I ever will since we practice in different states. I cannot speak to his abilities as a lawyer -- I will leave that to others. I can say, however, that is an exceptional PERSON. And if you are looking for someone to take your case on as if it was his own, you have found the right man."
