Travis represents good people – teachers, pilots, children, pastors, nurses, moms, dads, drivers, pool cleaners, grandmothers, grandfathers, young professionals, entrepreneurs, mechanics, attorneys, firefighters, oil field workers, hair stylists, message therapists, receptionists, air traffic controllers, assistants, accountants… the list goes on. The one thing they all have in common is that they were at the wrong place at the wrong time. They didn’t ask to be hurt. They didn’t ask for their life to be flipped upside down. They all preferred for the injuries to never have happened. But they are all prepared to do something about it. With Travis’ help, they are all prepared to seek their justice.
He became a lawyer to help people who are hurting because somebody else was sloppy, distracted, drunk, and/or greedy; people who are being taken advantage of by big businesses and big insurance companies.
Travis represents folks who are dealing with injuries of all shapes and sizes, and prides himself in giving people their voice. He learned his craft – and continues to learn each and every day – from great trial lawyers around the State of Texas, and uses those experiences every day to advocate for his clients.
Travis received both his business degree and law degree at The University of Texas at Austin. While in undergrad, Travis was President of the Texas Cowboys, a public service student organization comprised of campus leaders from various fraternities, UT sports teams, and student government. His favorite memory from those days was getting to shoot Smokey the Cannon at home football games.
Prior to forming Patterson Law Group, Travis worked at Shannon, Gracey, Ratliff & Miller, LLP in Fort Worth and Haynes and Boone, LLP in Dallas. He also served as a visiting prosecutor in the Arlington Municipal Court. In law school, Travis clerked for the Honorable Lawrence E. Meyers, Texas Court of Criminal Appeals, where he met his wife and law partner, Anna Patterson.
Travis was born and raised in Tarrant County, and is proud of his family’s service to this community. His grandfather, Harold Patterson, served as Arlington’s Mayor from 1983 to 1987 and served on Arlington’s City Council for over 20 years. His father, Mike Patterson, served on Arlington’s School Board and Planning & Zoning Commission. And his uncle, Roy English, served as Tarrant County Judge. Travis strives to use his law practice to continue his family’s commitment to our community.
Travis and Anna live in Fort Worth. They have two young boys (Hayes and Jack) and two golden doodle dogs (Graham and Graford). They are truly blessed and are dedicated to giving back to the community.
