LawyerCentral.com, January 3, 2017 — TEXAS — Patterson Law Group is happy to announce that Tennessee Walker, John Shaw, Travis Patterson and Anna Hodges Patterson have each been named "Top Attorney" by Fort Worth, Texas Magazine. We are humbled by this title and proud to do the work we do. Because good people deserve great lawyers.
Tenessee Walker brings the invaluable insight and perspective of a defense attorney to his role as a Plaintiff’s trial lawyer. Tennessee is a former Shareholder at Harris, Finley & Bogle, P.C., one of the finest commercial law firms in the DFW area. While at Harris, Finley & Bogle, Tennessee learned under some of the best and most accomplished trial lawyers in Texas. After spending eight years defending businesses and individuals in a wide variety of disputes, Tennessee joined Patterson Law Group to apply his craft in a different way—to fight for people who have been injured. His ability to think like a defense attorney allows him to better serve his clients.
John W. Shaw is a legal aid lawyer, to practicing in one of the most prominent and respected hometown law firms in Fort Worth, John has gained considerable experience representing clients in state courts and administrative agencies. Regardless of where he has practiced, John has always had a deep-seated interest in the specific problems that his clients face in some of the darkest times of their lives. John is always prepared to work his hardest to obtain the best results for his clients. Whether that involves simple negotiation, pre-trial settlement in alternative dispute resolution, or trial, every decision that John makes is driven by his client’s best interests.
John’s peers have consistently recognized him for his hard work and dedication to his legal craft. John has been A.V. rated by Martindale-Hubbel as a Preeminent Lawyer – the highest rating that a lawyer can receive – since 2014. Every year since 2009 he continues to be recognized by Fort Worth, Texas Magazine as one of the Top Lawyers in Fort Worth.
Travis Patterson is a trial lawyer. Travis became a lawyer to help people who are hurting because somebody else was sloppy, distracted, drunk, or just plain ol’ greedy; people who are being taken advantage of by big businesses and big insurance companies.
Travis represents individuals who are dealing with injuries of all shapes and sizes, and prides himself in giving people their “day in court.” He learned his craft from great trial lawyers around the State of Texas, and uses those experiences every day to advocate for his clients.
Finally, Anna Patterson is an attorney who enjoys getting to know her clients – what makes them tick; what they most look forward to; what they want out of life. At Patterson Law Group, Anna is part of a team whose primary goal is to get people’s lives back on track after an awful wreck or other life-changing injury. Empathetic advocacy is one thing that’s often missing in these types of situations. Anna is proud to be part of a group that puts the law where it should be – on the side of people and families.
Originally from Oklahoma, Anna fell in love with Fort Worth during undergrad at TCU. After graduation, she went back to Oklahoma for law school, then returned south for work (and for Travis).
Anna initially focused her practice on various transactional matters – forming businesses, advising investors and drafting wills. These experiences helped her to see what she really wanted out of her career: an opportunity to use the law to help people.
Together, we are proud to have been named "Top Attorney" by Fort Worth, Texas Magazine.
