Forsyth Divorce Attorney

A History Of Personal Legal Counsel

Since establishing The Law Offices of James E. Patterson, P.C., I have continued a family tradition started by my father. In me, he instilled the values of hard work and ethics, a philosophy that continues with my clients in need of professional and personalized legal counsel.

I am James Patterson, an experienced attorney with more than 14 years of experience and awarded with an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest available rating. I represent central Georgia residents, including those serving in the military and working for the federal government. I spend time one on one with my clients, identifying their needs while alleviating their concerns.

How I Can Help You

Specific areas of my legal practice include:

  • Family law, including civilian and military divorce, child custody and visitation, child support, modifications and adoptions
  • Preparing wills, personal and medical powers of attorney, and probating estates
  • Personal injury
  • Traffic tickets and traffic related offenses
  • Same Sex Divorce

I do not shy away from trial if it provides the best outcome for my clients. I am confident and comfortable appearing in court and defending my client's rights and best interests. My trial skills are especially helpful for Georgia residents dealing with the legal complexities and emotional issues surrounding divorce.

While many divorce attorneys are inexperienced in litigation, I am competent and comfortable in the courtroom. My clients can count on me to defend their rights and interests at trial.
