Judge Patterson works miracles in court
I was defendant in DeKalb County traffic court for "move over" law violation, facing a $500 fine and additional court costs, as well as points on my license (which increase insurance rates). Jackie Patterson was there representing another client. We talked briefly, and he took my case on the spot. The hearing before the judge never got started as Patterson argued successfully to have my case dismissed on technical grounds. Frankly, Patterson's argument before the court was ingenious and precedent setting. He came down on my case like a ton of bricks. I was amazed at his skill in court. It was over in minutes, and I never said a word. I was also amused at the defense, and had to keep my eyes looking down to keep from breaking out in laughter. They should have charged everyone in the courtroom to watch Patterson do his work. It doesn't hurt that Jackie Patterson is also a judge in Greenville, Georgia, traffic court once a week. I plan to stay in close contact with Mr. Patterson. He is not only an outstanding attorney, but a person of character and totally charming.
