About Patterson Law


Patterson Law is an established Maryland Personal Injury law firm that handles motor vehicle accidents, premises liability cases and wrongful death claims. Your recovery is our focus.  

Why choose Patterson Law

George Patterson and Maria Patterson have been designated as the “Best of the Best” by Maryland and Washington D.C. Super Lawyers.  This recognition, among many others, reflects our commitment to excellent legal work as well as a commitment to help our clients through difficult injuries and personal loss.

We listen.

It’s a simple concept but one that the legal profession often overlooks. Every one of our clients has suffered a loss. We help clients recover by first listening to understand the loss. A broken finger or an injured back is more than a line item on an insurance company ledger.  Each loss is unique to the life it afflicts. How does a lawyer know what is a fair recovery without knowing how the loss changed the client’s life?

We protect your dignity.

Our mission is a dignified and noble pursuit focused on protecting our client’s dignity.  Every injury is an assault on a person’s dignity. Injury is an affront to our work, our family and our self-esteem.  These elements, among others, form the core of our dignity. The ultimate insult to a client’s dignity is to listen to an insurance adjuster trivialize your losses and then accuse you of embellishing your injury. Patterson law is in the business of restoring dignity.

Recovery.

Recovery begins with a lawyer that listens and cares about your loss. Recovery continues with Patterson Law shielding your dignity from the routine assaults by insurance companies that believe your loss is simply an item to be reconciled on an accountant’s ledger.  Recovery is about getting better and an insurance company that begrudgingly conforms, or is forced to conform, to the values espoused by their caring mottos.  If you are concerned that you are not “in good hands” or the insurance company that is representing the person that injured you may not be your “good neighbor” then Patterson Law is the answer.
