mr patterson is simply the best hands down.i would most certainly reccommend him to anyone around thx


God & Attorney Jackie Patterson, 7/08/2014

I've had my share in traffic court many of times! I was told I was close to being an habitual driver due to extensive traffic charges in my past. I got a speeding ticket & I was very nervous i would... loose my driving privileges so I went into my prayer closet, that same night I was watching tv & seen Atty Jackie Patterson commercial I gave him a call the following day & immediately trusted his advice. Not only did I win! Atty Jackie Patterson got the charge dismissed!! **I thank u soooo much** I'm not going to mention the county yet I will say this, you will need an Attorney to fight for you or it will be a mountain full of un necessary penalties! I recommend Atty Jackie Patterson. He is very well respected with the courts. He is sharp in his practice & his fashion too:-)

'Amazing Results'

I was given Jackie's name and number by a friend. He answered my first call on a Saturday afternoon. After letting him know my situation, he assured me that everything would be okay and that he would be able to help me out. I was facing 6 months in jail so I was obviously very scared and worried. He not only was able to eliminate ALL the jail time but also had the majority of my charges completely dropped! Hiring Jackie was the best thing I could have done! I would have been in some serious trouble had I not hired him. If you want someone to help you out, I highly recommend Jackie for any trouble that you may be facing. He was always there to answer my calls. He is one of the most professional and reliable attorney's around! Do yourself a favor and hire him! Thanks again Jackie for all your help!!

The biggest thing for me is communication. Jackie helped me feel at ease by answering my phone calls and text's promptly and by personnly showing up for all of my court appearences. He is by far the most professional lawyer that I have worked with and this showed strongly in the courtroom and with the judge. Thanks Again Jackie!!

Your ONLY choice--JACKIE PATTERSON

I’m a young professional who was out of my home state when something bad happened. I had a run in with the law. I was given Jackie’s name and number to call for help. They said he was the best in the business. It was a Sunday afternoon and he answered right away. I gave him my side of the story and he told me “not to worry about it, everything is going to be okay.” I couldn’t listen to him; I was worried that my career was in jeopardy. I met him the next day at his office. We talked, and as I walked out of his office he told me “when you walk out of this office, I want you to KNOW that you won’t be charged with a DUI.” Jackie was professional, courteous, honest, informative, and had a way of bringing my spirits up when they were in the dumps. Jackie was available any and every time I needed to speak with him. I heard horror stories about these cases going 2 years long and other lawyers weren’t in a hurry to get your case settled. Jackie said it was his personal goal to have my case settled in 60 days or less. I am here to tell you that he did, and everything else he said he was going to do….HE DID! If you need any legal advice, Jackie Patterson is your man. Jackie saved my life and my career. He can do the same for you! GO JACKIE PATTERSON!!

Excellent!!!Excellent !!!Excellent!!!

Mr. Patterson is the TRUTH!!!!!! He was recommended by one of my closes friends and from day one after retaining him for council, I have not worried about my case. While retaining him for one issue another past issue that I thought was resolved came up, I had different representation, as they say you “pay for what you get” and I got caught up within the system by my last attorney, NOT following up, NOT having my best interest, NOT making me feel like he was on top of it!!! NOW I HAVE THE BEST!!! He has been on it since I’ve retain him, and he even fix the mess the last attorney screwed up. I would recommend him any day of the week, HE’S ON SPEED DIAL, OH YEAH HE DOES RETURN YOUR CALL ASAP!!!! Thank you Mr. Patterson for being the best at your craft!

World Class Service with Results

Attorney Patterson is an extreme professional who knows his craft and gives "Results" My husband retained him for a probation violation issue and Mr. Patterson was able to make a couple of phone calls to help us resolve the issue and get us the appropriate officer in charge of the case to get him released. If not he would have served 7-10 days for an error on behalf of Fulton County. I will definitely recommend his professional services to anyone in need. I thank you so much Mr. Patterson for your time and help. Word of mouth goes along way!!!

Exceeded my Expecations

Mr. Patterson was able to help me with a very expensive traffic ticket this month August 2011. He was able to get the fine reduced and the ticked removed from my record which was a huge relief. Because of the speed recorded I would have been required to appear in court had I not hired Mr. Patterson missing an entire day at work. Very satisfied and would recommend to others.

Outstanding Representation

Mr. Patterson is an outstanding attorney. He shepherded my family and I through a very difficult 12 month process where I was wrongly charged, and finally succeeded in having the case thrown out. He was very easy to contact and available at all hours. His relationships with court officers and prosecutors was, I believe, key in having my case successfully resolved. I unreservedly recommend Mr. Patterson for any criminal defense matter you may be facing.

A Lawyer For Justice.

I called Mr. Patterson and from our first converation I could tell that he was very knowledgeable and willing to help. Mr. Patterson took my case which was life changing and from the start he immediately took control of an out of control situation and made me and my Wife feel at ease. I was in jail and he kept in touch with my Wife as he worked on my case. Mr. Patterson was able to solve all of my legal issues and got me released from jail and back to my family. This man is heaven sent and I recommend him and his services to anyone in need no matter how big or small. He is the man and can make it happen for you. He is truely a blessing for me and my family. My situation was hopeless but after Mr. Patterson came on board,he took all of my worries away. You will not be disappointed in no kind of way. Without this man I would be in prison for a long time and would have lost my family. I dont know what he said nor what he did but Mr. Patterson was able to get me home 3 days before my Daughters 1st Birthday. I will never use another lawyer except Mr. Patterson for any legal needs. I wish that I could write more wrods but I am limited as to how many words I can write in this reveiw. Thank you Mr. Jackie Patterson for you and all of your help. Sincerly,Rod Hart.

The Only Attorney You'll Ever Need!!!

Having been a client of the Patterson firm on multiple occassions over the past 5-7 years I am absolutely amazed at Mr. Patterson's knowledge of the law and ability to receive very favorable outcomes regardless of how bleak the circumstances may seem to the untrained eye. Most recently I received a very serious repeat traffic citation that threatened my livelihood and career. Mr. Patterson displayed what I can only describe as brilliant legal skills and was able to secure a very favorable outcome - AGAIN! If you need an attorney that put the "law" in "lawyer", Jackie Patterson is the only attorney you'll ever need!

Makes a Tough Situation A Lot Easier

Securing representation by the Patterson Firm was one of the best decisions I've made (at a time when good decisions weren't exactly my modus operandi). Knowledgable, reputable and most importantly personable...their people went the extra mile to garner an outstanding judgment which let me keep my job and begin a better life for myself.
