I am a second generation family law lawyer, however I have chosen to expand my practice into the area of estate planning, probate and guardianship. We was at the same location since 1984 until June 1st 2013 when I accepted an offer to join a 100 year old law firm half a block away. I now am a partner in Newton Kight LLP founded in 1912.
I have extensive litigation experience, however find that one must have an eye to resolving disputes in a manner that does less harm than perhaps an extended trial might produce.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
Leslie Irwin, Domestic violence Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I endorse this lawyer. Mark Patterson is a strong advocate for a client to have in their corner. He is highly intelligent, and a skilled and experienced attorney. Moreover, his background in estate planning, trusts, and family law, and underlying Bachelors of Arts in Business enables him to provide a broader scope of counsel and representation than is typically found in any one attorney. In addition, people faced with estate litigation are often dealing with traumatic and life changing events and I have found Mark to be both kind and compassionate when working with his clients.
Paul Hanson, DUI and DWI Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
I strongly endorse this lawyer. I have been referring people to attorney Mark Patterson for years, knowing they will receive excellent representation. He is always one of the attorneys mentioned whenever us local lawyers are asked for a referral to a good Snohomish County family law attorney. He is one of the best around.
