Tyler Patterson works as a trial attorney with Patterson Legal Group representing accident victims and their families. Because of his background, Tyler networks extensively in the Kansas legal community.
Patterson graduated from Washburn Law School, where he won awards for his trial advocacy skills as a part of AAJ’s Trial Team. Additionally, Washburn University recognized him as the top Health Law student. Patterson’s knowledge of health law stems in part from his employment with the Texas Medical Association. In that role, he explored the inner-workings of hospitals, physician offices, and the US healthcare system. As a result, he uses these skills and insights at PLG to effectively argue on behalf of injured clients.
Prior to joining PLG, Patterson also worked at the Center for Auto Safety (CAS) in Washington, D.C. As a nonprofit, CAS worked to enact “Lemon Laws” in all 50 states, and the Firestone Tire recall. Additionally, CAS works to improve highway safety standards which are administered by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). Because of his work, Patterson is listed as a contributing editor to the 6th edition of Westlaw’s Automotive Design Liability book for litigators.
Technology and graphic design are among Patterson’s hobbies. “Graphics are under-utilized in the field of law. In the courtroom, a single graphic plays a critical role in explaining a difficult concept to a jury.”
Tyler Patterson is an avid runner and has finished many marathons, and ultra-marathons, and one 100 mile race. “Training for a 100-miler is a lot like PLG’s work for accident victims. Results come from determination, persistence, and long-term commitment,” says Patterson. Patterson doesn’t take the credit for his success, “I wouldn’t be where I’m at today without strong moral convictions and faith in God.”
