Patterson Justice Counsel, PLLC has one mission: use the full force of the law to break down barriers and advance justice.
Historically, the legal system has been weaponized as a tool of intimidation against people perceived as powerless and undeserving of the full respect inherent of humanity. The nation’s systems and laws were not applied consistently, equally, and equitably to everyone, but were instead used as a tool of oppression and suppression. These same laws and systems can be used as tools of liberation. The fight to maintain injustice can be dismantled with a fight to institute justice.
Our philosophy is rooted in the idea that we cannot be spectators or take a neutral side in the face of withering injustice. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees that every human being is born free, equal in dignity and right, and The United Nations Human Rights, Office of the High Commissioner notes that the duty of lawyers shall at all times maintain the honor and dignity of their profession as essential agents of the administration of justice.
