Brent A. Patterson, originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Brent spent his summers

at his grandmother’s home in Franklin, North Carolina. Upon his graduation from Louisiana

State University, he moved to Winston Salem and graduated law school at Wake Forest

University in 1992. Brent worked for two years in Charlotte for the law firm of Blakeney and

Alexander doing primarily labor and employment defense work. He moved his practice to

Gastonia, North Carolina in 1994.

After “changing sides,” Brent realized that he wanted to work fighting for individuals

against businesses and insurance companies who were trying to deny these people their rights.

His focus has been on personal injury, medical malpractice, worker’s compensation and

general negligence claims.

Brent spent ten years with the Tim L. Harris firm and as a partner in its successor,

Harris, Ragan, Patterson & Rodgers. Patterson Adams was formed when Brent and Scott

discovered that they shared a common interest in giving personal attention to each case

including trying cases no matter the size in order to protect the rights of working people. Both

Brent and Scott are dedicated to client service and seeking justice for the little guy.

Brent has tried cases all over Western North Carolina, but has concentrated in Gaston,

Cabarrus, Rowan and Mecklenburg Counties. He has taught a number of Continuing Legal

Education classes on negligence and Trial Advocacy.

Because of his trial experience and dedication to his clients, Brent is often sought out

by other attorneys that do not focus on injury claims. He has developed strong referral

relationships in both North and South Carolina with fellow colleagues that practice in several

different areas of the law. He is the past President of the Gaston and 27A Judicial District Bar

Associations and is active in the community.

Brent lives with his wife Benet, of twenty-six years and their two children, Savanna and
