A Great Man who
will be missed
Patterson Buchanan Fobes & Leitch, Inc., P.S. wishes to
honor and acknowledge Michael Patterson upon his
passing after a courageous fight with cancer. We also
want to express our deepest sympathies to his family.
As an attorney, Mike had a well-deserved reputation as
a relentless advocate for clients. Over his 44 years of
practice, Mike was a formidable litigator with a strong
presence in the courtroom, whether before judge or
jury. He looked forward to the courtroom and respected
the role of litigation in concluding disputes as well as his
responsibility to ably represent clients in that arena.
As a mentor, Mike encouraged each of us as reliable
and unflinching advocates. In 2007, when our Firm was
founded, Mike’s determination and vision provided a
strong foundation for our long-term success. Our Firm
grew over the years but his call for quality and support
for advocacy never lessened.
All of us at Patterson Buchanan Fobes and Leitch, Inc.,
P.S. will continue to represent our clients in Mike’s
tradition. We shall miss our partner, mentor and friend
but we shall honor what he has always inspired in us.
