Each and every time Bobbi Patterson thinks about herself as a lawyer, she proudly remembers her grandmother. “I became a lawyer because my grandmother encouraged me to go to law school. She was a strong believer in justice and also believed that fighting for right is one of the most important services that any of us can perform for our fellow citizens.”
As a lawyer for the Little Rock City Attorney’s Office, Bobbi gained experience in numerous areas of the law, but her primary focus was criminal prosecution. She earned extensive experience in the courtroom by trying cases on a daily basis.
Eventually, Bobbi made the decision to go into private practice. She joined a firm that focused exclusively on personal injury and social security disability cases. During that time she gained even more experience in new areas of litigation, negotiations and claims settlement. However, wanting to incorporate her vast criminal law experiences into her practice, she made the decision to open her own office.
This decision was based largely upon a heart-felt desire to defend and protect those unable to care for and protect themselves. Her belief that freedom is the most important right we have, led Bobbi to a career of helping others by guarding their freedom. After being a prosecutor for several years, she realized how important it is for every defendant to have a seasoned attorney in the courtroom, fighting on their behalf. Without such representation, the system works against the defendant.
Today, Bobbi’s law practice specializes in criminal defense, personal injury and social security disability. In all three areas, Bobbi considers it a privilege to serve the interests of her clients, who in virtually all situations have had their lives altered or destroyed by unfortunate events.
Bobbi Patterson earned Bachelor of Science Degrees from Arkansas State University in Psychology and Biology in 1982 and received her Jurisprudence Degree in 2001 from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, William H. Bowen School of Law.
